Can't comment on BLOG posts RRS feed

  • Question

  • On all the BLOGs we set up on our SP2013 site, users are unable to leave comments on blog posts.  

    When i look at the HTML i see that the outer CommentContainer div exists but the input box and submit button within it don't exist.

    This is all that exists.

    <div id="{26E57373-F1F4-41FE-8877-D78B5AFBC113}-{C46202C2-C47B-42A4-9F54-6A676E74DD34}-CommentContainer">  </div>

    On working blogs i've seen, the following should exist within it,..

    <div><textarea ms-fullWidth ms-helperText" id="{26E57373-F1F4-41FE-8877-D78B5AFBC113}-{C46202C2-C47B-42A4-9F54-6A676E74DD34}-CommentTextBox" style="height: 30px; min-height: 30px;">Add a comment</textarea></div>
    <div><div><button disabled="" ms-floatRight" id="{26E57373-F1F4-41FE-8877-D78B5AFBC113}-{C46202C2-C47B-42A4-9F54-6A676E74DD34}-CommentSubmit">Post</button></div></div></div>

    Permissions are set up correctly as well.

    Does anyone have any tips on what is happening?  We've hit a brick wall trouble-shooting it.

  • Hi ccpoulain,

    From your description, user can't comment on BLOG posts.

    For your issue, make sure the user have at least contribute permission on "comments" list in the blog site.

    Best Regards,
