Comments on Main Page?

Heya,

Can anybody tell me how I might get a comment form that has been placed on the main page to actually submit comments?

example

Maybe I missed a plugin or tag that would handle this?

Thx

Looks to me like it is working.

Re: Comments on Main Page?

The problem you have seems to be sitewide. I can’t submit a comment on the individual pages as well (at least not for the article that’s displayed and linked to on the homepage).

You’re absolutely right. I’ll take a look at this and get back to this thread.

Re: Comments on Main Page?

Ok, so I completely broke commenting on my site somehow. I have my site in Debug mode. Could someone take a look at it (commenting on sub pages only) and see if something is up? I restored all the comment-related forms to their default state and turned “Automatically append comments to articles?” back to “yes”. Still, it only allows for a comment preview. If one tries to submit a comment, it shows the correct URL in the address bar, but the Textpattern 404 page-not-found page is shown.

Re: Comments on Main Page?

Howdy.

Okay, so here’s the deal. The whole false positives thing got me on this (I added a dot at the end of sbl.spamhaus.org)

Comments are working again. The only thing that makes me wonder why this was so hard to discover is the fact that nothing in my installation (not warnings, not logs, nothing) was telling me that all comments were being identified as spam.

meh.

Re: Comments on Main Page?

If a comment was declined because of the blacklist function, they should get a “your IP is blacklisted” message. They wouldn’t if you removed <txp:error_message /> from your “error_default” page.

Re: Comments on Main Page?

If it was the blacklist-feature of Textpattern, then mary is right, it would have shown the message on the error page. You can see the message here by trying to leave a comment:
http://txd.sencer.de/txp/article/1420/howdy

The relevant tags are :
<h1><txp:error_status /></h1> and <txp:error_message />

If you didn’t get any errormessage or a different error-message it might be because smething else was interfering on your server (any redirects? any plugins?). ALso note that if you have a error_403 that would have been used as the error-template.

Re: Comments on Main Page?

I don’t have an error 403 template, but I do have an error_default template, perhaps that was why I was seeing the “page not found” message when I would submit the previewed comment?
