Comments Not Turning on WordPress


Hi Experts,

I am having trouble with the comments on our clients website. For some reason the comments are not showing up even though I have them activated in the back-end.

I have created a custom comments template which I copied from another site I developed. (comments are working fine on that site)

Any advice you can provide is greatly appreciated. Here is a page on the website:

<strong>Here is the code that pulls in the content on single.php</strong>

<h1>The Performance Advantage Blog</h1>
<hr />
<?php if(have_posts()) : while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<h3><?php the_title(); ?></h3>
<?php the_content(); ?>
<br /><br />
<?php if(function_exists('selfserv_sexy')) { selfserv_sexy(); } ?>
<br /><br />
<hr />
<h1>Leave a Comment</h1>
<?php comments_template(); ?>
<?php endwhile; endif; ?>

Please let me know if you need additional code samples.

Hi Oleg,

Thank you for the prompt reply. I have replaced the file, but still no luck. It seems to have changed slightly though.

I have attached a screenshot of the admin area to ensure i have the settings in the back-end correct.
