I have followed the EE 2.8.1 docs to create user comments to be displayed against the relevant channel entry on a singular page, as suggested.

However, the comments from the whole channel overall are being displayed and not just the relating entry itself.

Below is my code if anyone can help?

<div class="left-col-pages full-width">
  <h2>Job Applications</h2>
  {exp:channel:entries channel="jobs" orderby="title" sort="asc|desc" limit="1"}
    {if photo}
    <img src="{photo_url}" alt="{author}" width="60" height="60" class="right"/>
    <img src="{site_url}images/member_photos/image-member-placeholder.gif" alt="No Image" width="60" height="60" class="right"/>
    <p>{vacancy} for {company}, {area}</p>
  <div class="clearfix"></div>
   <!-- Show Applications -->
   {exp:comment:entries channel="jobs" orderby="name" sort="asc|desc" limit="2000" dynamic="no"}
   {if photo}
   <img src="{photo_url}" width="60" height="60" alt="{author}'s photo" />
   <img src="{site_url}images/member_photos/image-member-placeholder.gif" alt="No Image" width="60" height="60"/>
   <p><small>{comment_date format="%d.%m.%Y"}, {name}</small></p>

This is placed as an embed should that make any difference?

Thanks in advance Scott

It's the dynamic parameter.

If you set it to no, EECMS will not filter the comments to the entry on URL.

{exp:comment:entries channel="jobs" orderby="name" sort="asc" limit="2000"}
