I went to look in the spam folder (which is different from the moderation folder) because people were letting me know that their comments were disappearing. Lo and behold there were almost 100 comments in there that should not have been marked spam. There are two ways that I know of that comments are sent to spam. I can send them there or the spam detector can send them there. The spam detector works great. So I was ready to blame myself, but then I noticed that spam I sent there was marked “tagged by tamaratattles” and the stuff that was not supposed to be there was marked “cleared by the spam detector” thingamajig.
So what I am saying is that I moved the comments out of spam, which put them in moderation and then I approved them all one by one again. I hope this takes care of the problem. I hope Riley can post as Riley again, and Sammie can post as Sammie again. I’m sorry to the person who was having a mental meltdown almost as dramatic as the ones I’ve been have the past few nights because they were stuck with the window lickers. I totally get it and hope she is still lurking and reading this.
I am concerned because most people having the problem were not having it with every comment. So who knows if it will stop now or not. But let’s think positively. And I will try to keep an eye on the spam folder for a bit.
Thanks for bearing with me as I figure out all the new “features” that I have to deal with on this site. Frankly, I’m this close to just going back to WordPress.
