The comment feature of my WordPress blog is no longer working. I read what I could on the forum and noticed that the permalink structure caused problems from time to time so I tried messing with that. When I set the permalink structure to "default" the "submit" button on the comments works, but sends me to a page not found. When I set the permalinks to the second option in the list (with dates), the submit button doesn't do anything at all. I have the WP-dTree plugin installed, but I tried both of these with and without it enabled as well. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm using the latest version of WordPress, my host is 3essentials, and I'm using Jim Whimpeys Chewy theme.
