WP Comments shortcode?

I’m sorry if this is in the wrong section but can Loops & Logic be used to create a WP Comments shortcode that calls a specific post ID’s comments? I’m a little bewildered trying to answer this by reading the documentation… I appreciate any help!

Hi Walter, sorry for the late reply!

Currently L&L does not have a loop type for post comments. It’s been on the roadmap for a while, but it’s complex to solve because of how comments can be nested (each comment can have reply comments, which can have further replies, and so on).

I just got an idea though, maybe there could an L&L tag to simply call the WP function comments_template(), which loads the comments template (PHP) of the current theme.

It won’t be so customizable like having a loop type and fields for comments, but it could be enough for your purpose?
