New Blog Software

This is just to let you know that we upgraded our software for the blog. It doesn’t look any different for you, but holy moly it does for us on the back end.

A couple things have happened since the upgrade. One commenter posted a comment and never saw it. I checked the spam file and the regular file and it’s not there. I usually get notified when someone writes, and for that comment I never was. If any of the rest of you have had the same thing happen, I’d like to know.

Second, one commenter posted a comment and it went into the right folder, but I was never notified. There’s nothing for you to tell me about there, since that’s something that only I would know.

There is a possibility that you could make it so your comments can post automatically, but I haven’t yet figured it out. If any of you are willing to set up an account at TypeKey ( we can see if automatic posting is possible. If you do it, let me know and I’ll see if I can list you as trusted. I’ve tried to do it myself and have not been able to figure out how to make it work, or if it will.

If you’ve noticed anything different in the last couple of days, I’d like to hear about it. Send me an e-mail or make a comment here.

  1. I tried setting up a typekey account a few months ago, and I seem to remember it worked successfully. When I attempted to use it here, I believe it threw back an error message somewhere along the lines of “not supported.”

    Yes, you can activate it by clicking on “preview,” but when attempting to sign on to my account, it came back with the “The site you’re trying to comment on has not signed up for this feature. Please inform the site owner.” error.

  2. Steve,

    I signed up for TypeKey and then tried to “sign in” using the link on this blogging page. However, it said that typekey hadn’t been enabled for the site and to contact the administrator. So, consider this a contact. Signing in didn’t work for me.
