    I’m trying to get the Mail chimp Social plugin http://mailchimp.com/social-plugin-for-wordpress/ working on the Abundance theme but I’m unable to get it to show up under any of my posts.

    Has anyone else encountered this issue and if so is there a fix? I really need this plugin working before I can make my site live. I’ve used it before with the Genesis framework and it works perfectly, but with Abundance it’s a no no.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.




    if the plugin offer a php dnippet too you can add the code to includes/loop-index.php. I’d insert the code before following line:

    if(has_tag() && is_single())



    Thanks for the reply.

    I can’t find the loop-index.php file so I can only guess that I can’t add any code. Is if(has_tag() && is_single()) the code that needs to be inserted or do I need to insert some code before this line? if so what code? and where can I try without the loop-index.php being present?

    Sorry but I have very limited php skills and really need to try and get this sorted. I love the theme and this is the only issue that is stopping me going live. If it helps you can see my issue here http://www.eclecticcar.co.uk/2012/01/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -its-mot/#respond.

    On blog posts that already have comments you can see the comments but have no way of commenting as the form seems to be missing

    To see the plugin working correctly visit http://www.eclecticcars.co.uk/2012/01/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -a-quickie/#comments

    Any further assistance that you could give would be brilliant.




    I’ve now managed to solve this –

    open up plugins/social/assets/coments.css and change line 95 from

    #social #commentform {

    overflow: hidden;



    #social #commentform {

    overflow: visible;
