Leave a reply button missing on blog, Theme Awake

    The button for submitting the form 'leave a reply' on my blog is missing. Can you help me fix this problem? I've searched a lot on the web, but I can't find it. This is my current setup:

    • My blog is protected by WordPress Access Control and you need an account to view any of these pages, listed under blog;
    • Everyone can register and every new user gets the role of subcriber;
    • Once you're logged in as a user (different roles) you'll be able to see the blog posts;
    • But no one, not even myself as an admin, can leave a comment ... In my theme, Awake 3.6, I've deselected

    "Disable Comments on Pages ... Globally Disable Comments on Pages"

    And on the page itself and on linked messages the comments are allowed by a thickbox.

    in page.php (wp-content/themes/awake) the following code says 'disable_page_comments' ... I've changed that to 'enable_page_comments' but without success.

     * Page Template
     * @package Mysitemyway
     * @subpackage Template
    global $mysite;
    get_header(); ?>
    <?php if( isset( $mysite->is_blog ) ) : ?>
    	<?php get_template_part( 'loop', 'index' ); ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    	<?php if ( have_posts() ) while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    		<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" <?php post_class(); ?>>
    			<?php mysite_before_entry(); ?>
    			<div class="entry">
    				<?php the_content(); ?>
    				<div class="clearboth"></div>
    				<?php wp_link_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="page_link">' . __( 'Pages:', MYSITE_TEXTDOMAIN ), 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
    				<?php edit_post_link( __( 'Edit', MYSITE_TEXTDOMAIN ), '<div class="edit_link">', '</div>' ); ?>
    				</div><!-- .entry -->
    			<?php mysite_after_entry(); ?>
    		</div><!-- #post-## -->
    		<?php if( !mysite_get_setting( 'disable_page_comments' ) ) comments_template( '', true ); ?>
    	<?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    	<?php mysite_after_page_content(); ?>
    		<div class="clearboth"></div>
    	</div><!-- #main_inner -->
    </div><!-- #main -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    I'm not sure what to change or modify and where to look, because my css scripting capabilities are not that good.

    Hello bazzard,

    Your blog page is not supposed to display comments. If you view the single posts though then there should be a comment form displayed for them.

    Hello Elliott,

    Thanks for your respons, but I'm not sure what you mean. If I'm looking at the single posts the comments are allowed by a thickbox, but there is no additional 'comment form' or shortcode ...

    Or do I need to add another plugin to let this work?

    Not sure if I'm experiencing the same thing, but since the recent Wordpress updates all of my sites using MySiteMyWay themes no longer have submit buttons for the comment field. If I switch to one of the WordPress default themes (2014, for example) the input button is there. Here's an example:

    I've tried deactivating plugins, re-installing the theme, and installing/activating another MySiteMyWay theme. Using Awake, Construct, and Persuasion.

    Thanks for any guidance.

    Great: with this piece of code the button is back and everything works again!
