Recent Comments – WordPress Bug

Sara

Hello all – seems to be a time warp here, only comments I can see – are from Feb

Jack

BTH – I have tried to replicate the problem, but without much success. However, in the past, we have ‘cured’ such problems by changing themes – may be worth a go.

Hi Jack, thanks for that but I’m reluctant to try anything while there’s a chance the people at WordPress might find out what’s wrong and sort it out. Their guy Charlie said he’d never come across the problem like this before so my thinking is that it can’t be something straightforward. I think it might have something to do with the change from the old editor, which I prefer and what they call “the new posting experience”. Yesterday was the first time when I clicked on the edit button that it opened the “front page” in the “new posting experience” editor.

Hi Bitey

Hopefully this glitch in the comments section will sort itself out .However if it doesn’t clear ,and as the comments are still getting through even though they can’t be seen ,maybe you could leave Jack a message asking for advice on the front page ..For he’d still be able to respond to you with any advice he has in the normal way. .

Look forward to the resumption of normal service. ::-)

BTH – have you accidentally altered your cache.

I got confused and answered a post from ages ago without looking at the date.

Better get myself a coffee……..

Hi Desde and Paul,

No idea what the problem is although it’s only on the visitor page. When I’m signed on as editor, as I am now, it shows a similar number of posts, 16286 here on 326 pages, but on the visitor page it shows only 159 pages,

I did notice some unusual delays when I was editing this morning which might mean that WordPress was doing some of its own maintenance / updating and it might sort itself out. Well I hope it does.

What’s going on with comments here? I get February comments as the most recent.

The comment section here seems to have entered the tardis.
