Let's try again - I enjoyed the 100 things - wish i'd had it when I was your SP

Thanks Yvonne it's worked. I had changed the template to say no comments on new posts by accident.

Fred said...

Glad its not just me that hiccups when playing with the blog!

Noo said...

I thought I'd stop by and say "hi"! Just so you know, I don't see a comments link on your "SP and Comments" post, hence me leaving my missive here. Perhaps it's just my browser though...?

Hi Noo

I've kept the word verification thingy & have taken moderation off. I've had no comments for the past 5 weeks because of it :(

No comments can be left in SP & Comments as I'd turned on 'no comments for new posts' by mistake.

Fred

I tried to leave a comment on your blog last night & it said that it would be posted after you'd allowed it.

Carolyn said...

I left some comments! Most recent one after your post about your nightmare. I did wonder why it didn't show up!

I've had problems with Blogger myself recently - no email notification of comments for several weeks, then all of a sudden I start getting them again!

Give it another bash!
