Not displaying with Theme Pagelines DMS

Hi there

I'm trying to get Comment Plus work on my blog, which has Pagelines DMS as Theme. But it won't show, it remains the default comment form.
I saw the part with the hooks, but I'm also kinda newbie in these things.
What do I have to do to get comment plus work on my website?

Thank you already for your help and feedbacks.

    Hi @Elia,

    Welcome to the WPMU Dev community.

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    Can you just activate Troubleshooter Comments Plus add-ons from the path Admin -> Settings -> Comments Plus to troubleshoot possible configuration issues and let me know the result?

    Also check comments plus settings and tell me which Start and Finish injection hooks are you using?

    Best Regards,

    Hi Vinod

    Thank you for your quick response.

    I did that before, but could not understand
    So the result is always the same, wether i change the hooks or not:

    Fetching the post page: OK
    Parsing the post page: OK
    Checking header prerequisites: OK
    Checking footer prerequisites: OK
    Checking Facebook initialization: OK
    Checking form overall prerequisites: OK
    Checking form opening prerequisites: failure
    Checking form closing prerequisites: failure

    Right now I'm back to the default comment_form_before and comment_form_before

    I read some stuff in the community, but could not get smart of it.
    I tried to adjust kind of <?php do_action( 'comment_form_after' ); ?> and <?php do_action( 'comment_form_before' ); ?> to the comments.php of my theme (Pagelines DMS) but had no idea how, and it didn't work.

    <?php

    		endif; // end have_comments()

    Thx for the help!

    Hi @Elia,

    Right now I'm back to the default comment_form_before and comment_form_before

    Make sure it should be comment_form_before and comment_form_after

    I read some stuff in the community, but could not get smart of it.
    I tried to adjust kind of <?php do_action( 'comment_form_after' ); ?> and <?php do_action( 'comment_form_before' ); ?> to the comments.php of my theme (Pagelines DMS) but had no idea how, and it didn't work.

    The comments.php of your theme (Pagelines DMS) uses function comment_form(); that internally uses comment_form_before and comment_form_after hooks so you don't need to add it again.

    I checked the page http://www.deindiehl.ch/kolumne-soll-man-das/ on your site and found it's displaying comment plus form.
    Is it working now?

    Kind Regards,
