Commenting problems

By Anthony | September 19th, 2007 | 11:25 pm

Someone just emailed me saying that my blog isn’t accepting comments anymore. I tested it, and there does indeed seem to be something wrong. I apologize to anyone who’s had problems, and I’ll try to fix it as soon as I can. Very strange, since I don’t think I’ve changed anything recently…

Update: Ok, it should be working now. I actually had changed something, but it was to my server configuration, not my WordPress install. I used to have the server set to allow use of either “www.pleadthefirst.com” or “pleadthefirst.com” (with no “www”). I recently changed it to redirect the “www” version to “pleadthefirst.com”, so the www never gets used. However, in my WordPress options I still had the blog address entered as “www.pleadthefirst.com”. Apparently, that discrepancy is not good. Please let me know if you have any problems. (And a big “thank you” to meblogin for bringing this to my attention.)

    Wow! I am so happy to hear it was your site and not me. I’m always messing up on these darn new fangled things. I wish the five year old next door who programs my VCR for me would hurry and learn a bit more about computers. BB

    Brenda: I don’t think you’ll have to wait long – 5 year olds pick up things pretty quickly.
