Great job on this theme! One thing I’ve noticed, can you take a look at your code for the comments section?
I’m finding that they do not show as expected. If a new one is added, it randomly gets associated with the wrong post (instead of being added to the post the visitor enters it on and that it is intended for).
Past comment totals are correct for the posts but show as threads on the wrong posts.
What happens is that when visitors now submit a comment following the installation of You theme, they are then taken to a different post (which ultimately ends up being the one I find the comment gets added to). A different post from the one they are taken to is where the previous comment thread for that original post are now located.
Why all the mixup?
It’s not an issue with comments being turned on or off from what I can tell, as they do show–just not on the pages they’re supposed to which is why at first I was looking to see if I had them turned off. I don’t have any comment-related plugins installed from what I can tell either. I saw in the change logs that you had to resolve an issue related to comments a few months back. Hopefully that gives you some clues? Good luck. Let me know if you’re able to resolve the issue and tell me what pages I need to update inside the theme once you make the change in code.
Also: what’s the logic of the post navigation area? Beneath each post there are 4 related post option buttons that a user can click on and then under those 4 boxes are two more plain text hyperlinked post titles–one on each side. Are they supposed to be in order as though you’re navigating/browsing through the posts chronologically? If so, they are not. I can’t figure out why it randomly picks what it shows for those two hyperlinks with <– and –> directional arrows (which would make me consider them to be the equivalent to displaying the next/previous post etc. If the random nature is by design, that’s fine…just wondering if that’s also part of that issue I mentioned above.
I personally tested both issues you raised and I do see the issue happening from our test site.
I have forwarded this to Andy to doublecheck further.
We will get back to you once we have an update on this.
I see where the issue is coming into play, too….
Under “reading” in WP settings for the blog there is a fatal error being shown in the content sharing area. I don’t know where you are on resolving this issue, but hopefully this info is helpful.
Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_blog_option() in …./wp-content/plugins/blog-topics/cets_blogtopics.php on line 1002
Turning that plugin off allows me to save changes to that section for things like adjusting the number of posts displaying on my initial blog page but it does not change the issue of the comments not displaying where they should.
Thanks for the follow-up, @stvp2000
The developer is still looking into the issue you reported and I have asked an update from him.
I will get back to you once I have more information on this.
Thanks for your support. I did as you mentioned but still the same problem… the comments are shown on different posts. 2 people wrote 2 comments today on this post: http://www.imaginamas.org/inicio/en-mi-virus-mando-yo/ but they appear on this one: http://www.imaginamas.org/inicio/ruben-descolonizar-puerto-rico-reivindicar-placer-vih-dos-caras-una-misma-lucha/ I checked on the wordpress control panel and somehow they have been to different posts. Does this mean this solution does not resolve the issue with previous comments and only the comments that will be written after this change?
Yeah! So essentially, the old ones are correctly tied to their posts and return to those areas with the fix but any new ones that arrived post theme change to You got incorrectly assigned to different posts than the ones they were intended for and written on because that line of code automatically moved them once the user hit the submit button. Now your trouble is figuring out where they actually belong.
