"Invalid security token" message when leaving comments (4 posts)

    Hi there, every time anyone tries to leave a comment at the bottom of one of my posts, it gives them the error message "Invalid security token". This is a problem as it means no-one can leave comments on my posts!

    Does anyone know how to fix this?
    I'm using the Twenty Eleven theme, and my website is:

    Thanks!

    Try:
    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    It seems to be a problem with the Jetpack plugin.

    Thank you very much - I have disabled JetPack and now it seems to work. All I need to do now is work out how to use JetPack without it screwing up my comment posting! Shame because I really like JetPack :(

    I had the same problem. I discovered that if I deactivate JetPack and then reactivate it and walk through the steps of authorizing it with WordPress.com then it works fine.
