Reader Comments Wonky

I’ve had reports of Add Reader Comment not working like it should. Most notably it seemingly chooses a random diary to actually do the addition. I’m not totally sure why this is, but I have put some extra tweaks in place to ensure the integrity of the comments system and I hope it’ll kick it into touch.

When adding comments please make sure that the confirmation page says you are adding to a diarist that you expect. If its not, try pressing CTRL-F5 (if you’re using IE) and see if it reverts properly. If it doesn’t do it even then, mail us with as much detail as you possibly can.

Also, you may see a ‘Cookie Eater’ screen when adding a comment for the first time since Friday last week. This is part of what I believe has gone wrong and the cookie eater screen is trying to clean the mess up.

I should say that I believe this is a system failure and not a crack attempt of any kind.

Let me know how you get on, and sorry for the aggro… I really love PHP, its such a class piece of software to write web pages in. NOOOOT!

    This appears whenever I try to subscribe/unsubscribe from anyones lists. I am not sure if any of them are actually processing my request or not. I have tried emailing support, but to no avail. I am not the only one getting this error, I know IronicAngel is unable to subscribe to mine also…

    Sorry to put it in the comments section as I know you hate that, but the help isn’t working 🙂

    Thanks guys

  4. I know you guys hate this, but when I tried to login to my diary, this screen came up, and it had the DD logo on it, and it was that light green color and it said this in really big text: CVS addreadercomment.cgi approver.cgi banUser.php bugrep.cgi bugrep.html chPass.php choice.cgi comments.cgi custom.cgi editor.cgi graphics.cgi notifymanager.cgi showMyHits.cgi showMyHits.html2 showMyHits.pl themes.cgi todo.html updateuser.php viewer.cgi NEWSFLASH CVS addreadercomment.cgi approver.cgi banUser.php bugrep.cgi bugrep.html chPass.php choice.cgi comments.cgi custom.cgi editor.cgi graphics.cgi notifymanager.cgi showMyHits.cgi showMyHits.html2 showMyHits.pl themes.cgi todo.html updateuser.php viewer.cgi Russian tanks steamrolling through New Jersey!!!!

    I have no clue what it is and I checked my computer for all viruses and bugs and whatnot, and nothing came up.

  5. hey guys. just wanted to stop in and say YAY GIFS cos i’ve been keeping them in my user graphics too, as the album wouldn’t allow me to load them there.

    also – quicklinks… yesssss. so very helpful.

    can i just say again that i love DD? i’ve actually looked and started several diaries on several different sites, looking for the one that would work best for me, and you guys win everytime. (though, lol, i have to say i could do without the soap operas that happen from time to time…ahem.)

    but thanks again. i honestly appreciate it.

    xoxo,

  6. OH MY GAWD! I cant believe this actually is letting me leave a comment. I havent been able to all day, due to "stale cookies", and its killing me (sooo many people wrote about interesting things I must reply to).I filled out the support form, but I dont know if it will go through (I got an error for that too, earlier). I’m going nuts over here.
