Something weird is happening with the comments on this blog.
Some of them aren't showing up.
I have "comments moderation" turned on, which means I get an email every time someone comments and I then either approve the comment or mark it as spam.
Lately, I've been approving comments and they haven't been showing up.
They appear on my administrator's list of published comments, but they don't appear on the actual post where readers can see it.
This first came to my attention when Ellen kept trying to post a "thank you" on the received page. After multiple attempts over several days, she wasn't seeing her comment, so she finally emailed me about it.
At a loss for what to do, I decided to try deleting some of the older comments (there were more than 200 comments on the "received" page). As soon as I did this, Ellen's comment - and a bunch of others - appeared. I don't know why this worked since according to blogger there are no limits on the number of comments a post can have. Still, I thought the problem was solved.
Today I noticed that most new comments on the "informal mail art exchange" page are not visible. Again - on my end I can see that they have been published, but they don't appear on the actual page. There are only 77 comments on that page, and they are all from 2014. I'm not going to start deleting those in the hopes new ones show up.
I'm not sure how to fix this. I've been googling the problem and haven't found a solution yet, but I will keep working on it.
In the meantime, I apologize if you're trying to add your address to the informal list, or trying to send a thank you to a swapper and your comment doesn't appear.
Hopefully I'll get this straightened out soon.
If anyone has had this problem or is aware of a solution please leave a comment
(comments seem to be working just fine on my newer posts)
