Regulus Comment Problem

This issue was fixed in release phase 1.1

It appears that blogs using the Suffusion theme which have featured posts turned on on the front page show no content. The developers have fixed the problem and the fix will be deployed soon.

Workaround

You can avoid the problem by turning off featured posts.

In the Dashboard:

  1. Click on Suffusion
  2. Click on Blog Features
  3. Click on Featured Content
  4. Disable Featured Content

This will turn of Feature content, so you will not be able to see the Featured Content Slider on your home page.

One a fix has been applied you will be able to turn Featured Content back on.

If you have used the magazine template for pages it may have featured content turned on too, you can turn it off in the dashboard:
