Housekeeping: Comment System Fixed. Again.

Paranoia computer courtesy

Over the past couple weeks, some of you may have noticed that the comments system changed. Believe me — I didn’t intend to do it. And I had no idea why it changed. But, as of tonight, we’re back to the old reliable system and everything is as it should be. Turns out that somehow the Jetpack plugin for WordPress hijacked the comments function and substituted its own. I’m going to blame commies, out to destroy Friend Computer, for this treachery. We were receiving a number of complaints about people not being able to comment, and with this fix that should be solved. Unless you’re hot linking to Viagra advertisements. Let us know if you’re still seeing issues — which, if you are, please use the email (top right of the website) in case you can’t post a comment.

    Thank you, tired of my replies going to the bottom of the page.

    1. avatar Stinkeye says:

      Me, too. (Just posting this as a test to see if it’s working.)

  2. avatar AlphaGeek says:

    Hey, anything that keeps my erudite and learned comments out of the spam trap. Because I just love emailing Dan and RF and asking for yet another missive to be unleashed on the TTAG AI. 🙂

    1. avatar CarlosT says:

      When were you planning on starting to post those? The erudite and learned comments, that is.

  3. avatar Bob says:

    Finally, I’m able to enter a comment again!

    I was blaming it on my dreadfully slow internet connection (which may still have been a contributing factor), so I didn’t complain. THANK YOU so much for fixing it. This blog is so much better when you are able to contribute to the conversation, not just observe.

    No joke! It will keep the Mrs happy!!!

    Zombies infiltrating the web!

  6. avatar Brian Bowman says:

    I thought a few dumped comments was either a hyperactive spam filter or that ya’ll just hated me. Now we can rest assured comments are being properly cataloged into Main Core for the Final Roundup. 😉

  7. avatar Human Being says:

    I’ll watch out for commie-mutant-traitors, and keep my blaster handy!

    Now where did I put that cone-rifle…?

  8. avatar Roscoe says:

    Blame pro gun control hackers.

    Most here would buy that, true or not.

    1. avatar Joe says:

      It’s not paranoia if they are out to get you… But no, most of us have a working brain, so we wouldn’t buy it… But way to swing that broad brush!

  9. avatar Matt in FL says:

    I didn’t have any issues with the new comment widget, until yesterday when it simply did not appear at all. Either way, I’m glad it’s working.

  10. avatar sindaan68 says:

    Have you considered something like Livefyre?

    No im not a salesman for them either. Just see it being used more and more on other sites. Anyhoo….food for thought I guess.

  11. It is obviously, OBVIOUSLY, the fault of George Bush. Let us blame him, because it has worked for our Dear Leader for the last 6 years.

    I always suspected that Mr Leghorn was a High Programmer!

  13. avatar TexanHawk says:

    I thought I was… had become…. always have been… persona non grata.

    1. avatar ROS-I-GNOL-3 says:

      That’s ‘infrared’.

      Don’t worry, you’ve got lots of company.

  14. avatar Gyufygy says:

    Hey, I can still post my silliness! Your comment system must still be broken.

  15. avatar Randy Drescher says:

    I thought Y’all needed a reprieve from my innane comments, I’m back though, Randy

    1. avatar Swarf says:

      I, for one, missed your conversations with Randy, Randy.

      1. avatar CarlosT says:

        We’re lucky he lets us listen in.
