Ok, comments are working now BUT 😯
It would seem while the “normal” user could not leave any comments – the spammers have been working around the clock anyways… obviously accessing the comment files directly! 👿
I managed to find an older version of the file that was corrupted – which is good as some of my other tools seem broken for the moment ( my web hosting service having gone under several new companies might have something to do with this… ) 😕
So while I can restrict, somewhat, some of the spammers. Some seem to be getting through besides that… which means I have to do some work behind the scenes now to make obvious files become way less obvious ( I hope 😥 )
Having broken tools doesn’t make my life any easier either… Got to get them fixed first I think.
Wish me luck – I think I’m going to need it! 🙄
