Fixing “Comments are closed” problems on WordPress Blogs with Social

December 28th, 2012

There you are, sitting there posting an absolutely awesome blog post which is getting a LOT of attention. OMG THE HITS JUST KEEP COMING IN! EVERYONE KEEPS SAYING HOW AWESOME IT IS. Yet no one is commenting on it on the blog. WTF is going on here!   So you take a moment to browse over to your blog post everyone is so enamored with only to find in the comments section.

Comments are closed.

And you start freaking out. WTF IS GOING ON HERE!?!? I DIDN’T CLOSE COMMENTS.   It’s strongly possible, that you didn’t.  But you can fix this.

When this happened to me just the other day I immediately started doing searches for “Wordpress Comments are closed” “Wordpress comments disabled” “disabled comments” and every other iteration of it, only to find… a whole REAM of absolutely useless and piece of crap posts and forum conversations which did NOT help.   A lot of them refer to checking the “Discussions” area in the control panel of wordpress… Yea, that doesn’t change over night.

But I also recall some time ago having made a change from using Twitter Tools to “Social” because they claimed the tools I PREFERRED were no longer supported or would function, so upgrades will need to be done.

Here is the kicker, if you are using Social by MailChimp that could be the cause of your problem, so next steps involve visiting your WordPress Control Panel

And you may come across this little gem:

Social by MailChimp may be disabling your comments with it's "Social's Comment Display" - Check the box to re-enable your comments!

Turns out that Social has integrated it’s own Comment Display system… which I’ve never seen and could give a damn for since it essentially BROKE my comments.   So by taking the next step and by checking the box….

By checking "Disable Social's comment display" your old Disqus or other comments should be re-enabled!

All of a sudden my blog went from “Comments are closed.” to enabled and allowing people to COMMENT again! Hooray, right!

If you find this benefits or is useful to you, feel free to COMMENT and let me and everyone else know :)  Also if you do come across other solutions you wish to share in the comments, don’t hesitate to make it known!  Good luck and good commenting!

Vaughn Stewart takes the world by storm! (Virtually!)

September 8th, 2008

I want to make special mention of Vaughn Stewart of of the Virtual Storage Guy blog.

This guy is sharp, smart, and quite possibly one of the best resources you can tap regarding Virtualization as a technology for the past, present and future.

If you have virtualization involved in your datacenter, small, medium or large.  I’d keep a close watch on what he has to say :)

So, welcome his re-entry to the blogosphere with a visit to his blog! :)
