Comments: My Blog’s Bane.
In three months, this blog will turn fifteen. A teen is a geriatric in the blogging world, so my blog needs a ton of upkeep–and I’m requesting your help with one particular aspect: comments.
For the last few months, I’ve been receiving complaints from those trying to comment on the site: the form wouldn’t allow comments! Nonce errors, invalid request signatures and similar gobbledygook greets those trying to comment, and they simply give up.
Comments are my favorite thing about blogging–they foster interaction, and blogs are one place where nuanced interaction is somewhat possible. I know some of my blog friends for more than a decade.
I’d love to get to the bottom of this : am I the only one who can’t receive comments from time to time? If yes, woe, me. If not, what are the other blogs facing issues with comments? How can I fix this? I’ve been trying to troubleshoot by myself, but now I finally have help to do it–someone who knows much more about WordPress than I do.
So here’s the help I need, if you’re so inclined:
1. Comment on this post –tell me of your troubles commenting here, on other blogs, or receiving comments on your blogs.
2 . Fill up this QUICK FORM: will take 1 minute, and if you know me, you’ll know I’ll use your email only to troubleshoot, and not for spam. I just need to know your browser, the method of commenting, and the post you commented on, all in one place so I can get the issue fixed.
If your comments go through, it will be good for me to know what is working. If you receive an error, the form will help me correct things, and boost your blog.
Have you been facing issues commenting on Daily (w)rite? I’ve heard both Blogger and WordPress comments had issues recently–did you experience any of it?
My lit crime novel, The Blue Bar will be out soon with Thomas & Mercer. It is already available for preorders. Add it to Goodreads or pre-order it to make my day.
