I was really hoping the last time I changed my blog’s “skin” would be it. It wasn’t exactly perfect, but it suited my purposes well enough. Or so I thought…
It all started shortly before I left for vacation. Julie from Above the Norm alerted me to the fact she was having trouble leaving comments. I had heard something similar back during the Halloween Blog Giveaway from a few people also.
I tried to figure out what was up, but I couldn’t. I figured maybe the Internet was being finicky or something. Then I got busy and sort of forgot about it.
Then I returned from vacation. I tried to respond to comments left in my absence and to leave some on Susan’s guest blogs, but I couldn’t. It was frustrating enough to not be able to leave comments on my own blog, but when I thought of comments I may have missed from readers? I knew I had to figure out the problem.
I’m not sure it was entirely the “skin’s” fault, because I’d had a different one for the blog contest and I’d had trouble then too. But the more I fiddled to try and fix my other skin, the more aggravated I got and realized certain other things (mainly some widgets) weren’t working either.
After spending the last 2 days testing various other skins, I finally settled on this one.
I can’t guarantee this will be the last switch. (I’m hoping! I could really spend my time doing other things.)
But I am hoping the comment problem will be resolved.
However, if it’s not and you encounter any troubles, please shoot me an email to let me know will you?
