Unable to get comments, reply, etc. to appear at the bottom of a post. Can you help?

I've filled out the settings made available in Upfront for each of my posts, but the fields for comments, reply, etc. aren't showing up at the end. I have no idea what's going wrong or if there is a glitch in the application. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Hi there @Kimberly Cohen

    I hope you had a great weekend!

    I just logged into your site to see if I can help you figure this out. The first thing I saw in your admin is that comments are disabled for every individual post.

    I then tested by toggling comments on/off for an individual post in the admin, and that works as expected. However, trying to do the same in the Upfront editor has no effect.

    I can reproduce this behavior on my own site, so I'm flagging this as a bug, and have notified the theme developers so they can investigate.

    For now, you would need to continue toggling comments on or off as needed in the admin. I know, it kinda defeats the purpose of having a frontend editor, but we'll get that sorted soon enough. :slight_smile:

    Hi again @Kimberly Cohen

    I hope you're well today!

    I just heard back from one of the developers who confirms that the Discussion Settings link in the Upfront editor (found at the bottom of every post/page) adjusts the global discussion settings, just like under Settings > Discussion in the admin.

    There is currently no per-post setting to toggle comments on/off in the Upfront editor.

    Both I and the dev agree though that it would be very good to have that option in the Upfront editor too. So he<s gonna run it by the lead Upfront developers and, hopefully, get it into a future update.

    So, in the meantime, we'll need to continue using the checkbox for individual posts in the admin if we want to turn comments on or off for a specific post.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
