Integrated Comments not showing on website.

Hi!

Im trying to integrate comments into my site news pages, however, all its showing it 'Comments by Vanilla' where the comments box should be.

I followed the instructions, changed the identifier to what i wanted it to be which was 'xbf-news' and the URL is correct.

But the comments box still doesnt show, ive tried disabling my plugins to see if it was one of those doing it, but it wasn't.

You can see whats happening here -> http://xboxfamily.uk/x/index.php?id=19

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Jon

    You have a syntax error on your page.

    That entire script block should look like the following:

    /*** Required Settings: Edit BEFORE pasting into your web page ***/
    var vanilla_forum_url = 'http://xboxfamily.uk/community/index.php?p=/'; // The full http url & path to your vanilla forum
    var vanilla_identifier = 'xbf-news'; // Your unique identifier for the content being commented on
    
    /*** DON'T EDIT BELOW THIS LINE ***/
    (function() {
      var vanilla = document.createElement('script');
      vanilla.type = 'text/javascript';
      var timestamp = new Date().getTime();
      vanilla.src = vanilla_forum_url + '/js/embed.js';
      (document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0] || document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0]).appendChild(vanilla);
    })();
    

    I am not sure how you are generating that block though. The variable vanilla_identifier needs to be unique per page.

    Are you running WP?

    I am unfamiliar with cutenews, but that script I sent you should get you over this hurdle.

    Please report back if that doesn't work.

    There appears to be no change. You still have the same syntax error.

    Do you have some type of caching system in place?

    No, which is what is confusing me!
