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.

Thanks!!!

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.

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?

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

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

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

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

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.

Kalima — could you go to the Brainstorming post for a second and see if you have the problem on that article?

This gets curiouser and curiouser, to quote Alice.

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! 😳

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!

I’ve got a mess of code beginning w WordPress database error

Nellie thank God, I’ve had it for two days and thought I was the only one. Are you on a Mac or is this random?

Yesterday it started in the reply to comment box too. I’ve told AdLib about it and he has checked but nothing shows up about an error. Mine is still here.

Yep. I’ve got a HUGE string of error code, lines and lines of it.

I just ignored it — I figured it was another WordPress bug that would go away in a few days.

I thought it would sort itself out too but yesterday it started under the comment box when I wanted to just reply to someone. Now I have two, but strangely enough not on my MB, it’s the only thread that is clear.

Mac discrimination?

I wonder if it could be the browser. I’m using Safari — which can be very persnickety.

Report this comment

Kalima

I haven’t had any problems with Safari and Firefox messes up my computer, it takes me to places that I don’t want to go, turns pages without being asked to, so I can’t use it.

let me try,. I didn’t get any code yet, nellie. When did you get a code? On a reply?

It’s under any comment text box — whether a reply or an original comment to an article.

Oh, I see it nellie. I click it and everything is fine. I use a PC and firefox, if that helps. The problem is that I now have 11 new emails from every one commenting. I thought you only got the reply to your comment, not every comment on the post.

But now I am getting”you are subscribed to this entry. Manage your subscriptions”

nellie, after checking the box, I don’t have a box to check.
