Missing Comments

It’s an indication that I should look at my own website more often being that I did not notice that post comments have disappeared from view until just a moment ago. I think the WordPress 5.5 update broke something with the way this site’s theme displays comments, but they’re still uploaded to the database whenever anyone posts anything and I can still read them in the admin dashboard. Unfortunately I’m at a bit of a loss as to how to modify the theme to fix the damage the core update has caused. I’ve given some thought to changing the site’s theme to look more modern, and while I’m not entirely enthusiastic about it, I guess this is as good a time as any to find a newer theme.

Edit: I think I found a fix for my old theme. Can anyone let me know if comments display properly now?

      Yeah, apparently an update around this time changed the core WordPress code and broke the theme. It was pretty annoying trying to figure out what code needed to be changed to make comments visible again.
