    Hi!

    Ive been using this awesome theme for a few months now. My website is getting lots of visitors, but I have problem with comments. I want Comment Box to appear after post/page content but before visitors comments. I was trying to edit comments.php. Somehow I managed to add second Box in the right place, but then I couldnt remove the bottom one, so I re-do any changes to not mess with it anymore. I am totally newb and have no idea how to do it right… ๐Ÿ™

    Hope you guys can help me!

    Hi!

    The steps you did, work for me. Create a file comments.php in the folder of your GeneratePress-Child-Theme and there change the position of the box. The whole file looks like this:

    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying Comments.
     *
     * The area of the page that contains both current comments
     * and the comment form. The actual display of comments is
     * handled by a callback to generate_comment() which is
     * located in the inc/template-tags.php file.
     *
     * @package GeneratePress
     */
     
    // No direct access, please
    if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) exit;
    
    /*
     * If the current post is protected by a password and
     * the visitor has not yet entered the password we will
     * return early without loading the comments.
     */
    if ( post_password_required() ) {
    	return;
    }
    
    do_action( 'generate_before_comments' ); 
    ?>
    <div id="comments">
    
    	<?php do_action( 'generate_inside_comments' ); ?>
    	
    		<?php
    		// If comments are closed and there are comments, let's leave a little note, shall we?
    		if ( ! comments_open() && '0' != get_comments_number() && post_type_supports( get_post_type(), 'comments' ) ) :
    	?>
    		<p class="no-comments"><?php _e( 'Comments are closed.', 'generatepress' ); ?></p>

    Hello, I’ve already customized my comments.php file a bit so don’t want to substitute the whole thing… was hoping someone could explain specifically what I need to do to move the comment box above the comments. Thank you!
