We’ve had some kind of a weird malf of the WordPress database here at FS. The obvious symptom is that comments are not visible on any of our threads. The WP software thinks there are no comments on the blog as a whole. This is obviously nonsense, as the mysql backups show over 300KB of comment. So something has come unglued in the WP php layer… or there’s something wrong with the wp_comments table.
If all this is gibberish to you, then the non-geek version is “the comments are not really lost, but we are not sure why they are not showing up.” DeAnander will be working on this. We hope to get back on the air by tomorrow (July 16).
