I want to change the word comments for the word reviews. I worked out to change it in the 'Listing Page Display Code' box but on the listing I haven't figured out how to change the word comments to review in the tool box bit .Any one tried this one?
General setup > Language > Comment form translation
Hi folks, while we’re on that subject, the “comments” on my Directory Press based tourism site all seem to be disabled in the publicly viewable listings.
I can’t seem to find where to switch on comments for listings.
I did try turning on comments for registered and logged in members in the comments part of the control panel, but comments are still showing as turned off in the listings.
If you look at the listing at you will see that “Comments are closed” at the bottom of the listing page.
Thanks in advance!
Could be that you have comments turned off sitewide in WordPress? Dashboard–>Settings–>Discussion
Many thanks for the reply.
No, I already seem to have comments enabled in the “Turn Comments on or off” section of the Dashboard.
admin -> settings -> dicussion
turn it on there, then under your theme settings > display setup -> search/listing page
***if STILL not working, you may need to edit individual posts to allow comments. I was having the same issues, then did a bulk edit to enable comments on posts that were already in the directory – now the comments work.
thanks for the feedback Michael
Hi Mark and Michael,
Many thanks for replying.
I had looked at the admin Discussion panel and all seems correct.
Comments now seem to be open on the newer listings but still not on the older listings and I can’t see an option to toggle on or off comments in individual listings.
I’ll try Michaels suggestion as well.
Thanks again folks!
I am having the very same issue. The comments on a directory press listing is only available to logged in users.
Garry, directorypress or the directory theme?
Are you unable to see the comments on this listing?
