Comment box not showing

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://shelahknits.com

Hello,

I am having trouble setting up my comments on my blog. The comment box is not showing.  I tried setting it up on the Blogging section and on each blog post itself, even tried adjusting my spacing and margins.  Did someone else encounter this?  Please help.

Thank you so much.  I appreciate your help.

- Shelah

}

Ditto. Injected the code. Refreshed website and opened on Incognito on Chrome. Still comment box not showing. 

Edit: Fixed!

You have to go to individual blogs to enable comments. My understanding is since the blogs were already created, enabling global settings didn't update the switch.

Hi all!
 

Our comment box isn't showing despite:
1) injecting @tuanphan's code, above.
2) enabling comments on each blog post.
3) enabling comments in global settings. 

Here is an example blog post:

https://www.texashistorytrust.org/texas-history-news-and-opinion/randolph-b-campbell


Any other suggestions? 

Try adding to Design > Custom CSS

.squarespace-comments .comments-content.read-only .new-comment-area {
    display: block;
}

Thank you, Tuan!

When I add that snippet in addition to the original one posted in this thread...also without the original snippet, I get this error when trying to leave a comment:

/api/comment/CreateComment?crumb=BTZKPykaqDhCZmM4YTgwZTY2MjI5YjZiYWRmMWRiZmI1YmVkMWVl  (JSON)

Authorization Denied: You do not have enough permissions

I have to fill out the "comment as guest" form, although we have anonymous comments enabled...then that error message comes up on desktop and mobile.

Follow up for @tuanphan...

When I open an incognito window, I don't get the error, I guess because it doesn't view me as being logged in as admin.

But people will still have to enter an email address and name to comment as guest. I think I'll leave it that way.

Okay. If you still help with any other problems, just comment here

@tuanphan I realized today comment box on my post wasn't showing. Added the additional Custom CSS code from above. Comment box is now showing but getting the error message saying I don't have permission to post. All comments are turned on each post and in the general settings. Thoughts?

Error message: 

/api/comment/CreateComment?crumb=BYjBaBlb7hYMNTE1ODM3YmZmOTY5ZjY3YzU1N2U2ZGFmZWMwNmYx  (JSON)

Authorization Denied: You do not have enough permissions

Hi @tuanphan - thank you so much for the quick response! When I try to enter my comment, it looks like it posts and says "awaiting moderation" and then I scroll up and get the error message again. Upon refreshing, it's no longer there. I deleted the Custom code and re-entered it but still doesn't appear to be working. Code I entered pictured below. Any other potential suggestions? I appreciate your help either way!
