Why don't my comments show up on my blog page?
My comments do not show up on my blog page. I receive an email with the comment but they don’t show up on the blog page for others or myself to see.
The blog I need help with is runnermamablogger.wordpress.com.
Do you find the comments here?
Dashboard > Comments
No I do not see them there. Really strange. I received 2 comments today on the blog I posted last night but they are no where to be found.
Not to worry. Please provide the usernames of those who commented and I’ll tag this thread for Staff to examine what’s going on. Then also subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.
Thanks so much. Below are the emails from today, I can’t find the other one from the other day. Thanks!
Hi There is there any update on this?
Please don’t post back into your threads. When there is an update, staff will post it here. When you make a “hey, what’s happening?” post, it drops your issue back to the back of the line, since staff work from oldest unanswered posts to newest ones. Just wait. They will eventually get back to you.
You are including a contact form on each of your posts, so these responses aren’t comments, but emails to you. By design, they will never appear on your blog.
You can see them here:
You don’t need to include a contact form on your posts if what you want to do is allow users to post comments, as there is an automatic “reply” box on all of your posts:
You could, however, create a “contact me” page and add a contact form to that.
For more information on comments, see:
And here’s the documentation on the contact form:
Also, I should note that I redacted the information you included in one post because there was personal information included.
Thanks so much. Could you add the following comments back as well?
While I’d love to help you out, I can’t add comments back in, because they aren’t actually comments. :)
If you’d like, you can contact each of the people who have commented on your site via their email address, and ask them to repost the comments on your site.
