Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Showing comments and comment form below each post on multi post pages, too:
For Atahualpa 3.4.2+ (This may be an option in later versions)

1. Edit Atahualpa's index.php add the green part:

<?php /* This is the actual Wordpress LOOP.
The output can be edited at Atahualpa Theme Options -> Style & edit the Center column */
$withcomments = 1; bfa_center_content($bfa_ata['content_inside_loop']); ?>

2. At Style & Edit CENTER COLUMN -> The LOOP, add the green part

<?php $withcomments = 1; comments_template(); ?>
</div><!-- / Post -->

3. At Style & Edit CENTER COLUMN -> Below the LOOP, remove this:

<?php /* Load Comments template (on single post pages, and static pages, if set on options page): */
bfa_get_comments(); ?>

Is there a way to use this also with Atahualpa 3.3.3? Or does it only work with 3.4.2?

Best regards,

Would you explain how to just list existing comments under the post, but omit the empty Comment template, please? (I figure the users can click Leave Comment if they want...)

Hi Flynn,

I actually have the same question. Displaying the comments and comment form works fine when I follow your instructions, but I really don't want the comment form to show automatically too. Any solution?

Thanks a lot in advance,

Hi Flynn,

I am also very much interested in a solution that displays the comments to posts, but omits the comment form!

if you shut off comments for a post, the form won't show for that post, just the existing comments.

yeah, totally correct.

but that would not allow any new comments to be submitted...or am I on the wrong track?

I would like to show the comment form only on a single post page, where the user gets directed through towards the comment-link in the post footer. On the other hand the comment form should
also show up on category-pages that have only one post as content...

I am thinking about using something like this to determine the number of posts

global $wp_query;
$num = $wp_query->post_count;

and then maybe set the single_post flag?

What do you think?

Best wishes

Happy New Year BFA-Team!

I don't know why I had so much problems with this, but here is the (kinda easy) solution that I found wich suits my needs:

(i) index.php

Insert Flynn's code

(ii) The LOOP:

In here, I insert this stuff to decide whether or not I want to see the post-footer. If the footer shows up, I also include the comments_template call that Flynn showed.

(Note: post_is_in_descendant_category('35') is a function that I included into wp-includes/functions.php)

/* Show the footer only in project-posts or work-sample pages */
if ( post_is_in_descendant_category('35') OR in_category( array('56', '58') ) ) { 
	bfa_post_footer('<div class="post-footer">','</div>'); 

	 * Load Comments template:
	 * -> always show existing comments also if it is a multi-post page
	 * -> show the comment form only on single pages or category pages with only one post and open comments
	$withcomments = 1; comments_template();

	/* If the footer is displayed, close with a dotted line and padding to the bottom */
	?> <div class="comments-footer-byline"></div> 

<?php } else { 
	/* Show the footer byline instead */
	?>  <div class="post-footer"></div> <?php } ?>
</div><!-- / Post -->

(iii) comments.php

Insert this stuff to show the form only on single post pages (could this maybe become a feature in future releases???)

if ( is_single() ) { 
/* show comment form only, if it is a single page  */
<!-- Comment Form -->
<div id="respond">

Thanks for your support!

Best wishes

Can you define your problem?

I didn't define it surely. My problem is after I adjust my blog, the comment area exist in homepage and single post, how could I make it only exist in single post?
