AdLib On January - 12 - 2010

Last week, we introduced a new feature at The Planet, a checkbox on the comment reply box that allows you to be notified when more comments are added to an article.

One member reported seeing a big paragraph of computer code on the comment reply box instead of the checkbox.

Could you please respond to this post and let me know either way, if the checkbox and comment appear fine or if you too are seeing a paragraph of computer code on the comment reply box?

Also, I’d appreciate your feedback on whether this is a feature you are or would like to use.

    OK, so I am a little slow. I found it and set it up as a Google home page. I can open it in my browser as my home page, but Planet Pov has to be regulated to just another news source, lol. I am sure I can find my way to it each day.

  2. SueInCa says:

    I don’t see any box that is related to what you are talking, I am on Int Explorer v 8 via Windows Vista

    I don’t have a box. I’m using Mozilla Firefox if that matters. Have I missed something here?

  4. msbadger says:

    No box appears. I had seen it before, though! I checked it and I love the feature. Hope you get the bug out.

  5. msbadger says:

    I’m on a PC using Google Chrome browser. No box yet, however. I will try the submit button and see what happens.

    Things look fine on my Mac… I’ll keep a look out for it.

  7. nellie says:

    AdLib — here’s another weird wrinkle. This error message isn’t happening on the Brainstorming article.

  8. Khirad says:

    Mac, and I’m not really sure what you’re talkin’ about.

    • Kalima says:

      Do you see any mess of codes directly under your comment boxes, right under Submit Comment it says WordPress database error: (Column ‘post_status’ in where clause is ambiguous) if not you are lucky.

  9. Questinia says:

    I have a Mac and no problems.

  10. Hopeington says:

    All’s fine on my page. No problems.

  11. Chernynkaya says:

    Oh for god’s sake, I am stoopid! I see the box now-- it’s in the place I type my comments, BEFORE I post them. Sorry, AdLIB! 😳

  12. AdLib says:

    I think it may be a conflict with Macs. Anyone else here have a Mac? If so, do you see code or just the checkbox?

    Anyone on a PC see the paragraph of code?

    • boomer1949 says:

      Me too! All is well, no complaints.

    • nellie says:

      AdLib — I still have the check box.

      According to the error message, this is the crux of the problem:

      WordPress database error: [Column ‘post_status’ in where clause is ambiguous]

      Is there anything that’s supposed to be ABOVE the check box?

  13. Chernynkaya says:

    Adlib, I haven’t seen anything regarding this-- nothing new on my replies or comments-- not even codes. But I have been wanting this feature and hope we can get the bugs out!

  14. javaz says:

    I see it just fine, and I like the feature!!!

      j’avaz and all, I haven’t seen any code…yet…

      But I may not be on God’s VIP list…. 😉

      I do see the “Notify me of followup comments” message!
