[Solved] Comment form not showing up - some sort of interaction with WP Rocket caching
In the past few weeks, I've noticed an issue on my site that is preventing people from commenting. The comment field on posts is showing like what I've attached - just a blank gravatar, no comment field:
But then, if I click WP Rocket's "purge this URL" option, I get the second attachment - which shows the comment field.
I haven't changed any WP Rocket settings. Any idea what could be causing this? It's a big issue for me, as it's preventing people from commenting on the site!

Update on this - I disabled WP Rocket and the issue was still happening, so I dug a little more and discovered that when I purge the URL from my Nginx cache, that's what fixes it. So the problem is in the Nginx caching, not WP Rocket.
Digging still further, I'm seeing the issue even with all caching plugins turned off.
I think this has fixed it... awesome! I'll reply here if I see the issue again.
