Hey Jazib,

Did you create a comments.php file? If you did then probably you didnt put any code inside this file so you dont see anything on your page because your including you comments.php file.

You can check if it works when you delete the comments.php file from your template. The default will be output by wordpress then.

So that means your single.php is working. You have to take a look the home.php template instead to get what you want.
