How to Make Sure all Comments on Your WordPress Site are Showing

Updated on Aug 6, 2021

Comments offer your WordPress site visitors a platform for communication. They can contact you and other readers through this platform, allowing them to add their opinion or input on the topic, ask questions, provide feedback, etc. WordPress has its own comment management system where all posts and pages can accept comments. Additionally, every WordPress theme comes with a comment layout template. With that said, it’s entirely up to you to engage visitors and encourage them to leave their comments.

This post entails:

The Comments Screen in WordPress

All comments on your WordPress site are displayed in the Comments page in the WordPress Admin area. By default, it would display all comments. When you move your mouse over a particular comment, you will be able to see the action links for it. Comments that are awaiting approval would be highlighted with a light yellow background. You can switch view to see the Pending, Approved, Spam, and Trash views.

Make Sure all Comments are Showing

In case you have the issue where not all of your comments are showing on a specific page, the issue is most likely related to the Internet Browser you are using. The problem probably would not be noticed when browsing your website with Google Chrome. It usually persists with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. A missing stylesheet of your theme causes it.

The Solution

We have a simple solution for you. You need to find the style.css file in the wp-content/themes/yourthemename/ and then add the following line of code at the end of the file:

input, select, textarea {
padding: 0 10px !important;

This code will cause the IE and Firefox web browsers to display correctly the words you are typing when writing a comment on your WordPress site. If the issue is still there after the solution, please clear your browser’s cache and cookies.
