So it seems I broke my Wordpress template awhile ago and didn’t realize how easy it would be to fix it. I’d been putting it off but I fixed it earlier today.
It turned out I didn’t have a “single.php” file for formatting the display of individual posts, so it was using the main template instead. And that template was missing a single critical tag (that I didn’t know I needed to have) that plugs in the comment form.
So now you really can tell me how much I suck.
