Several of you have let me know that submitting comments have been BUGGY AS HECK in the past few weeks. I’ve been trying to figure out the problem with my tech neanderthal brain. The rock bashing was not super successful. So then I asked my very smart friend Christina Major, of Sombulus, and she gave me some very helpful lines of inquiry to follow.
Lo and behold, the plugin I’d been using to enable emails to be sent out when somebody replies to a comment was a whopping SEVEN YEARS out of date. When I’d recently updated PHP/Wordpress stuff, it ceased to be compatible with the newest version.
SO: Hopefully posting a comment now will not spit out an error. If you see something weird, PLEASE let me know so I can try to figure out what’s going on.
In the meantime, I’ll be looking into alternatives to the old plugin so that we can get the notification feature back. I appreciate your patience while I continue to technologically bash rocks. Thank you to the folks that reported the problem and to Christina for helping me figure out the root cause!
