Comment Count (5 posts)

    I have no idea what is happening. My comment count is going berserk. I have contacted Disqus and they feel it is not them. Have a quick look at the home page (www.mediocremum.com) you will see that the comments are in the hundreds and growing by the minute. Each time I log on there are more. When you go into the actual posts it is fine....however when I log onto the dashboard each of the comments that were made are multiplying like rabbits.

    Please help?

    Many thanks for your response but the Askimet plug in is activated. It's not spam emails. Hard to describe, but on home page (www.mediocremum.com) it is showing hundreds of comments, but when you go into the individual post you will only see a handful (eg 10). However, when I log onto the dashboard those 10 comments have duplicated 30 times and have conitnued to duplicate themselves throughout the day. I'm not technical as you can probably tell so would be most greatful of any advice.

  4. The listing on the main page shows a couple hundred, but the post itself only shows tens, which ....

    Yeah. I'd think this is disqus too!

    What other plugins do you have?

    This all started when I attempted to update my plug-ins the other day. I have about a dozen but it failed after the 1st four updates. Those were....

    Akismet
    Chicklet Creator
    Disqus Comment
    Easy and Popular Posts

    It failed when it tried to update Secure Contact Form, which I have now removed. I have been in contact with disqus and they don't feel it's them??? I'm really at a loss of what to do now. Should I try removing disqus and then reinstalling...I'm worried about losing all my comments.
