I’m trying to add comments to the homepage of the Fabric theme. Based on a search of these forums, I added the following code to functions.php:
add_action( ‘genesis_after_loop’, ‘genesis_comments’ );
Visually, it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Upon inspecting the code, I find this at the bottom of the post:
But that div is empty (that’s a direct cut & paste; not edited). I initially thought that maybe the post data didn’t exist (since it’s happening *outside* the loop), and changed
but that doesn’t seem to have helped either.
Any idea what I’m doing wrong?May 1, 2013 at 7:39 am #38739
Where exactly do you want to display the comments based on this visual hook guide? http://genesistutorials.com/visual-hook-guide/
Rather than edit the home.php file, you could use a custom function or create a widget area in the hook position you want to output the comments. You can then use the recent comments widget which is a default WordPress widget.

That’s an awesome page! I’d like the comments to show up somewhere in the
sections. Basically exactly where they show up in any other post that’s *not* a homepage post. And to clarify, I need the comments from the post itself – not the most recent comments across all posts.
In short, I just need
to look exactly like
I would cheerfully use a custom function, but what’s got me confused is that this *should* be possible with a simple line of code like the one I already tried. I just need to tell Genesis to do whatever it normally does with comments, only do it on the homepage too.
I keep thinking that this shouldn’t be this hard.May 1, 2013 at 8:05 am #38745May 2, 2013 at 1:00 am #38882
Brad, thanks for any help you can give! A custom function would definitely work; I just have no idea how to even pull that off – I’ve been trying to hack away at things in functions.php and modify hooks, etc. but I’ve had *zero* luck.
With that comments div being empty, I get the feeling that somewhere comments are supposed to be loaded by a query, but they’re not. That’s what’s got me really confused. I think if that riddle could be solved, I’d be okay.
Anybody have any thoughts on that?May 2, 2013 at 2:03 am #38889June 6, 2013 at 11:47 am #44369

This one is stumping me, too. Anyone get this to work? (Seems like such a simple thing – have a post with comments on the front page. Y’know?)July 1, 2013 at 9:55 am #48689

Stumping me too. Just keeping this post going in the hope that someone finds a solution…
