The setting for Comments is set to On for single blog post pages. But the meta info displays “Comments Off” and there’s no Comment box on the single post page.
Each page (in edit view) shows that Comments are on.
A web developer set up the site and made a few customizations through the Custom CSS element but there’s nothing about Comments in that code.
Any ideas about why this is happening? Or where else to look for code that’s over-riding the standard elements?julieulleryParticipantMay 12, 2019 at 9:36 pmPost count: 1
I am having this same problem. Have tried everything.KristinParticipantMay 14, 2019 at 8:10 pmPost count: 4
Go into a post, scroll all the way up on the screen. On the top right you’ll see “Screen Options”.
Click this, open it up and you’ll see a bunch of checkboxes. Make sure the checkbox is checked for Comments.bigpicturecommunicationParticipantApril 29, 2020 at 12:28 amPost count: 9
That allows you to add comments in the back end, but doesn’t allow subscribers (or anyone) to leave a comment on the post (front end.)
Anyone else solve this?
Thanks in advance!

Yes, I already have that setting turned on.
I found that the only was I can get comments to show up is to disable Fusion Builder for posts (under Fusion Builder settings) and then go into the post settings in the Guttenberg interface… Document > Discussion > “Allow Comments”
There seems to be no such option to “allow comments” in the Avada / Fusion Builder interface, and by default, comments are turned off. If I have fusion builder turned on for posts and make a new post (even if default editor) it won’t have comments enabled. (Under Fusion Page Options > Post, there is the option to “show comments” but that’s not the same as “allow comments.”)
Is there perhaps a theme option or fusion builder setting that I haven’t found?
Thanks for your help!

I wasn’t able to turn on comments for static (normal) pages until I went to Avada – Theme Options – Extras – Miscellaneous and turned Comments on Pages to On.
There’s nothing like putting a key option in an area marked ‘Extras – Miscellaneous’ 😉kranftleParticipantJuly 27, 2020 at 9:10 pmPost count: 1
Kristen mentioned the “screen options” solution, but she identified the wrong check box. To have the comment box visible on posts, you need to make sure that the “Discussion” box is checked in screen options, and then you’ll be able to turn on discussions from within the AVADA post editor.calonso23ParticipantNovember 5, 2020 at 8:38 pmPost count: 1
Going to “Avada – Theme Options – Extras – Miscellaneous” and turning Comments on Pages to On is what avada users are not aware of, and for me was the final step (and time consuming one) to get my comments on finally.socialconceptParticipantDecember 12, 2022 at 4:44 pmPost count: 1
I had the same issue and found the clue on the global datas setting of the WordPress.
On the comments section, you’re free to disallow comments x days after the publication.
If you do so, you will encounter a comments closed advert.neovoraParticipantJanuary 8, 2023 at 2:21 pmPost count: 3
My issue was that I had created Custom Post Types, and at the very bottom in the “Supports” section, I hadn’t checked the “Comments” box. After adding that support, I went into an existing post, and the “Comments” section showed and was un-checked. So, by following socialconcept’s instructions above, I’ve unchecked the “Disallow comments after X days” and now when creating new posts (both blog and custom post types), the “Comments” section is there, and allowed.
