Comments are working!

After a 13+ hour marathon troubleshooting session yesterday, I’m happy to report that the comments feature for the weblog is fully functional now! Again, many apologies if you’ve ever tried to comment and couldn’t. A few tips:

  • You must be registered and logged in to post comments. Registration is no big deal, you just have to enter your e-mail address, pick a username, and your password is immediately e-mailed to you.
  • When you login the first time after you register, you are taken to a page that looks nothing like the weblog! Don’t panic, just look for a link that says “View site” and click it. Then you’re free to comment on whatever you like.
  • If you ever need to change your info, like your e-mail address, you can click on “Site Admin” in the sidebar and you’ll be taken to a page that looks nothing like the weblog, but you are still here, and you can change your information at will.

And now for the privacy stuff: even though you must enter your e-mail, it is stored in a secure location, and will only be used to send you mail for admin purposes (when you get your first one with your password, if you forget the password, or change it) and will never be shared with a third party.

If you ever have problems logging in, or questions about anything pertaining to membership on this weblog, feel free to contact me.
