I want to enable comments for custom post types just like they are for standard posts, but can't seem to get it to work.
In functions.php, as part of registering my custom post type, I have this:
'supports' => array('title', 'author', 'thumbnail', 'comments', 'revisions'),
In my single post type template I have this:
<?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
But on the edit screen "allow comments" is un-checked by default which results in a "comments are closed" message on the front end. When I check "allow comments" then comments are enabled on the front end, but I really don't want to tell my client he has to manually check that box for every new post.
I tried the recommendations here:
But it didn't work for me.
I tried disabling all plugins. Didn't work.
Using WP 3.6.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
