    The Comment Form for blog posts appears for logged in users, however it is not appearing for people who are not logged in.

    In the past, people could comment on blog posts without logging in.

    As you can see on an older post, there is not a comment form, but there are comments:

    Hello @caasc, Please check your Discussion Settings, You can control those options from there.

    Hey @vapvarun,
    Thanks for your reply.
    It's not the discussion settings, those are correct for the main global settings and on the single posts.

    All plugins were disabled, except for BuddyPress plugins, on a staging site.

    All plugins, and the theme, are up to date.

    Hi @caasc, please test with switching theme to default WordPress theme once to confirm the issue. If it works fine with the default theme, PM your login details we will check that.

    I switched to the default theme, and then the comment form appeared.

    I sent you a PM with an admin login to our staging site.

    Thanks so much for the help.

    Hey @fritz, Please copy comment.php from parent theme to child theme and modify following lines
    replace following codes at line 59

    
    <?php if ( is_user_logged_in() ) { 
                    comment_form(array(
                        'title_reply' => '',
                        'logged_in_as' => '',
                        'comment_notes_after' => '',
    //                    'comment_field' =>  '<p class="comment-form-comment"><textarea id="comment" name="comment" cols="45" rows="8" aria-required="true" placeholder="'.__('Your Comment...', 'boss').'"></textarea></p>',
                        'label_submit' => __('Comment', 'boss')
                    )); 
                } ?>
    

    with

    
    <?php comment_form(array(
                        'title_reply' => '',
                        'logged_in_as' => '',
                        'comment_notes_after' => '',
    //                    'comment_field' =>  '<p class="comment-form-comment"><textarea id="comment" name="comment" cols="45" rows="8" aria-required="true" placeholder="'.__('Your Comment...', 'boss').'"></textarea></p>',
                        'label_submit' => __('Comment', 'boss')
                    )); 
                ?>
    

    It is fixed and will be published shortly.

    Hi, I’m having the same problem. I thought it would have been fixed by now. My discussion settings are fine.

    Hi @mb42, Please let me know which version of Boss theme you are using?

    Regards

    Hi Pallavi, many thanks for your prompt response. I only downloaded it yesterday so I assume it's the latest one. Just checked:
    Social LearnerVersion: 1.0.6
    Boss.Version: 2.1.0
    Hope this helps.

    Hi @mb42, Deactivating plugins one by one to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    Regards
