Thanks to readers who have let me know that comments were disabled for most of my posts today. I have since enabled them.
The reason this happens is because “Comments Off” is WordPress’ current default position, and if I want my readers to comment–which I do!–I have to take an extra step, with each post, to allow comments. Sometimes this extra step–two steps, actually–is easy to forget. All it takes is a small distraction while I’m in the middle of doing it.
If you wonder why I don’t contact WordPress and demand that they change the default position to “Comments On”–well, I’m afraid they’ll solve that problem but give me another problem that’s even worse. Like light blue letters on a grey background, or a microscopic type size… I just dassn’t open that can of worms.
