Thank you to Morgan Blackthorne and Dayna Hart for helping me to fix the comment problem I was having. Morgan suggested uploading Akismet to the site and Dayna, my designer, did that and made some other back-of-the-house changes and, I think, everything is set. I also updated the setting that allows folks to set up an account to comment (I left the “must be logged in” feature on), but if you have a Gravatar or WordPress account, you’ll be set (and both are free, you can use what you like).
If you’re still having problems, let me know and I’ll see if I can fix it. Obviously, if you can’t comment, you can’t let me know in comments – duh, so either PM me on FB or em me at a.catherine.noon AT gmail.
