Comment Section On a Page

  • Analytical Madness

    #49251

    Hey everyone,

    I’ve been trying to create my website with Graphene and I want some of the pages I’ve created to have comment sections. However, these comment sections only seem to appear on posts. Is there a way to make a comment section appear at the bottom of a page?

    Alternatively, is it possible to make the “Post Page” only display posts of a specific category? My post page is set as my “News” page. I only want news posts to appear on there but not regular articles. On the other hand, I also added a “Recent Posts” widget to my right sidebar and I’d like it if this one only displayed things in the “Articles” category. Is this at all possible? If so, how?

    Kind regards,

    I’ve been trying to create my website with Graphene and I want some of the pages I’ve created to have comment sections. However, these comment sections only seem to appear on posts. Is there a way to make a comment section appear at the bottom of a page?

    In the Edit Page screen, click on “Screen Options” at the top right to pull down the page options. Tick on “Discussion” to enable comments option for the page. Then, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and tick “Allow comments” in the “Discussion” box.

    Alternatively, is it possible to make the “Post Page” only display posts of a specific category? My post page is set as my “News” page. I only want news posts to appear on there but not regular articles.

    I assume you have a link to your “News” page in the menu. The easiest and most efficient would be to just change the URL for this menu item to point to your news category archive page.

    On the other hand, I also added a “Recent Posts” widget to my right sidebar and I’d like it if this one only displayed things in the “Articles” category.

    Try using the Recent Posts Widget Extended plugin.

    Thanks! That all works great. A bit of a follow-up question though, at the top of posts there is a way to go to the previous and next post. Is there any way to make these category specific? Or alternatively to just remove that?

    At the moment, you can remove those links by adding this code to Additional CSS:

    .post-nav-top {
    	display: none;
    }
    

    In the next theme update, we’ll include an option to turn off this feature, and restrict the links to posts within the same category.

    Worked perfectly as well. Thank you very much, you’ve been very helpful and I will certainly be keeping an eye out for that update.

    I apologize, but there appears to be one more thing that’s popped up. I hope I’m not being too much of a bother. But when I uploaded a featured image for my latest post, the featured image was shown overtop of the image in my header. This did not happen for the two posts I’d made before this. Do you have any idea what I can do to prevent this from happening?

    Nevermind, I already found out the answer. For anybody who’d ever have the same problem and come across this, I resized it to be square instead of rectangular and it no longer posted it in the header.

    You can disable this feature in Customizer > Graphene: General > Header > Disable Featured Image replacing header image.
