Comment problems and anti-spam word difficulties

There are still problems with the comments.

Yes, I am getting your e-mails that you can see the anti-spam word.  I know also that there is a long long delay for the comments to appear.

I can’t fix this myself immediately.

Something was done to the server, some sort of cache, I think.  Until this is adjusted, and I can’t do it myself, I suspect this will persist.

People can help themselves out by registering.  Registered WDTPRSers don’t have to use the anti-spam word at all.  I reserve the right to refuse particular registrations or alter them.

    How do we register? I don’t see any instructions on the sidebar, although it is highly possible that I am missing something very obvious! Thanks

  2. Father: Happy Anniversary!

    Felicitas:

    In the last sentence Fr. Z wrote on this subject, the word “register” is in blue. Click on it, and you’re on your way to register!

  5. O.K. I registered. This is a test to see how much time it takes for post to go up. It usually takes my posts almost twenty minutes.

  6. After that first comment, which took twelve minutes to be put up, I found a new “Leave a comment” form which just told me that I was logged in, followed by the combox.

    Now, this is the second attempt. Here goes…

    Thank you, mg. As I said, I missed something very obvious. Duh. ;)

  8. 35 minutes later, and the logged in version still didn’t go up. It’s on the sidebar, but not on this page, yet. Gotta go. I vote for an immeditate switch to the new and improved blog, Fr Z!

    Oooh, I had no idea you could register…

    Now to see if my comment shows up…

    Had I but known, I would have registered long ago….

  11. wmeyer says:

    Interesting…. the comment finally was sent, but now does not show up on the site…. another source of delay?

  12. Vincenzo says:

    Happy Anniversary Father Z!

  13. Mitch Bond says:

    Merely testing my commenting capacity as a registered member. Fr. Z, Felicitations on your anniversary.

    It would be most useful to have a Login link at the top. It is not obvious how to do so without first clicking on the “registering” link in this post. (Add my bit to the anniversary wishes!)

  16. When I tried to register, my name – Fr Seán Coyle – was rejected. However, I’m not sure that it’s of any great advantage to register.

    God’s blessings.

  18. Thanks for the reminder about Logging in. I completely forgot you had that set up.
