It appears that sometime on Friday my comment system broke. It may have something to do with my running out of disk space (which happened on the same day), although when I freed up some space on my server, comments were still not working.
So now, if you submit a comment not only does it not appear under an entry, but it causes all the other comments for that entry to disappear as well!
The meta data for the entry still shows the correct number of comments, but you just can’t view them.
What’s strange is that the new comment does not show up in the Movable Type admin interface, whereas the previous comments still do.
Except for when you try to view the comments for an individual entry, in which case none show up.
I have no idea what the problem might be, although I have yet to properly research it. If you have any suggestions, please let me know via my contact form.
In the meantime, I’m just going to have to try life without comments — which already feels rather lonely.
