WordPress Comments Disappeared? Try This Fix
Just want to give you a heads-up on an issue that caught me by surprise with some of my blogs: Namely, there was suddenly no way to enable or disable comments for my posts.
I wasted quite a bit of time, trying to figure out what was wrong. The first time it happened, I thought it was an issue of the new Socrates WordPress theme I’d just purchased. Then I realized that this latest WordPress upgrade was missing the comments-handling option completely!
Here’s what to do, to get that section back:
- Go to “Edit Posts” in your dashboard
- Click on the “Screen Options” tab under your log-in name
- Select “Discussion”
On my own, I missed the “Screen Options” tab completely and couldn’t figure out how to get the comments handling back. Fortunately, I had the world’s speediest help from the Support Forum administrator for my new Socrates theme (even though the support forum is for to handling theme-specific issues — not general WordPress issues).
So thanks very much indeed, Dan Nickerson!
