Blog Comments Issue

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.remotefitcoach.com/team-power/w1d1

The comments section of blog pages on my site are not appearing like they should. Only the "Comments" text and the order of the comments dropdown appears (photo attached showing this) -- the dialog box, existing comments, button, etc. have all disappeared. How do I restore the original, default settings of the blog comments section to have it function properly again? Thank you!

You have to go to settings/blogging,  comment settings located in the middle of that panel and enable everything basically.  Then enable comments for each individual blog post in post settings/options if using a  7.1 template. If all that is already done, then my question would be have you changed the look of the comments box using any CSS?

Hello, yes, I already adjusted those settings prior. Everything was showing correctly like it should but I do remember that I did indeed adjust some code of the blog comments section which unfortunately seemed to cause this issue. How to fix or go back to the original code for this?

I should also add that this issue affects ALL of my websites within Squarespace for some reason when I only adjusted the blog comments code for just one site. How to fix? Thank you!

Thank you, @tuanphan... Just to be clear, there is current code of the comments sections that I accidentally manipulated which resulted in the comments section only partially be shown (as shown in my attached photo). Is there a way to manually access the code that I manipulated to either delete it or correct it OR does this code just resolve the issue regardless? I just don't wanna mess it up anymore by adding additional code if all I needed to do was just adjust the current code. Please advise -- thank you!

Yes, @tuanphan, can you please kindly confirm my question first though before I potentially mess it up even more -- thank you!

You can save all current code in Custom CSS somewhere, just for backup, before add/edit anything

I had a similar experience... except that I hadn't modified the template with any custom css.

I ended up switching off the comments on the blog, saving the change, then going back to turn it back on and saving again. Now the comments are working.

However, still working on the like button.  We get an invalid session crumb error.image.png.672d459bb45f3192eb47621ceb6d7d44.png

I am getting the same invalid session crumb error message. Have you found out how to fix this yet?

(that is just one example page, it happens on multiple different pages)

Trying to like any of the comments generates the Invalid Session Crumb error. This has been replicated in multiple browsers, across normal and private/incognito windows and having completely cleared out all history and cached data. About the only thing I haven't tried is creating a completely new user and this being the first page I visit having opened the browser for the first time. Has been replicated on MacOS and iPadOS. Will test on Windows when I get a moment but I'm expecting a similar result.

Thanks for replying, appreciated.

I did subsequently raise a support ticket and have received a very prompt response confirming that the issue is known about. No confirmed timescale on a fix, but I appreciate that these things have to be looked at in priority order and that development resources are finite. At least we know it has been noted and can inform site visitors of this.

This worked like a charm. Thank you for providing your experience!

Hey it's been almost a year, have you all figure out a fix for the liking of comments?  Why on earth do you have the feature offered if you can't make it work for your customers?  tsk tsk!!!

According to this thread, the issue of users' inability to like blog post comments has been continuing unresolved for over a year and a half?! Insanity, Squarespace! 

This issue occurs on my blog--does anyone know if it affects blogs across the board or just certain ones? Knowing this might help provide a clue to how it can be fixed...

I'm encountering the same problem. When I disable the 'like' option, the entire comment field disappears. Consequently, I'm forced to enable the non-functional 'like' option to make the comment field operational. Is there any further information available regarding when a solution might be expected?
