It looks like a tweak I made a month ago resulted in a broken comment form. Whoops! If I had been logging into the spam-drop email address I use for this domain, I would have been alerted to the problem. I have been getting a small but growing amount of visits to this site. I wondered why there were no comments–now I know. Apologies for those who have been trying to chime in.
I also did a ‘lazy’ upgrade to WordPress 2.2–I notice a couple of blemishes from this upgrade but I’ll keep an eye on what else might break. For those who use the Freshy theme version 2.1–there is a hardcoded “2.1″ that you might miss in the sidebar PHP. You can temporarily fix that by changing it to “2.2″ if you’re running 2.2.
