@nysc,

Try to use the wpDiscuz shortcode. More info here: https://wpdiscuz.com/community/postid/598/

Hi @Asti,

Thanks for the feedback but I don't even know where to begin based on the info on that page. Where do i place the shortcode?

@nysc,

Put this code in the active theme functions.php file:

function my_wpdiscuz_shortcode() {
    $html = "";
    if (file_exists(ABSPATH . "wp-content/plugins/wpdiscuz/themes/default/comment-form.php")) {
        ob_start();
        include_once ABSPATH . "wp-content/plugins/wpdiscuz/themes/default/comment-form.php";
        $html = ob_get_clean();
    }
    return $html;
}
add_shortcode("wpdiscuz_comments", "my_wpdiscuz_shortcode");

Then insert the shortcode wherever you like:

[wpdiscuz_comments]

I may also suggest you check the points mentioned in this doc if the comment form is still not to be visible: https://wpdiscuz.com/docs/wpdiscuz-7/getting-started/missing-comment-form/

@nysc,

Please the "Default form" make sure the "Display comment form for post types" is checked for the current post type. 

In any case, please press the "Update" button in the form edit section. Then delete all caches and check again.

@asti Thank you. Yes, I had done this earlier and it worked. I'm sorry I did not return here to update you. It works beautifully and I even deleted the code you earlier provided for the functions.php file and it still works. Or do you think I should keep the code in the functions.php file?

Your plugin is first-class. Congratulations on your creation.

Thank you, @nysc,

If it's work without the code you can simply remove it.

Thank you Asti. I will do as you say.

However, please can I ask you if I can also use the approach described on this page: https://isotropic.co/add-wpdisquz-to-elementor-a-better-comments-system/. This approach does not appear to require any code.

Thanks in advance for your reply.
