    just installed wordpress - comments worked at first - i tested out a smiley plugin with it. but its stopped working since then. I was fooling around with some images in theme "Royale 1.3 by t0mmmmmmm" when it stopped.

    -----!
    Please note i was messing with IMAGES only - i did NOT alter ANY code of ANY sort
    NOR did I change what type of permalinks I used

    Ive checked similar topics and from their info Ive tryed the following things so far to fix this to no avail
    1 - change theme
    2 - disable widgets
    3 - disable plugins
    4 - change to widgetless theme
    5 - reinstalled pages in main WP folder and theme folders
    6 - changing number of posts / page

    :S im out of ideas now - If anyone has any other tricks to kick comments into working again i would be very thankful

    looks to me like its a redirection thing not WP related at all, if you try manually going to the link of a page with comments (adding in index.php) it takes you to your old site.

    ie a with comments link is this:
    http://www.exotic-butterfly.net/?p=3#respond

    which is actually this:
    http://www.exotic-butterfly.net/<strong>index.php</strong>?p=3#respond

    but that takes you to your old blog.

    Sorry I can't offer more help than that, hopefully that'll point you in the right direction!

    thats because my old site is in the root directory. WordPress is actually at http://www.exotic-butterfly.net/WPress/index.php

    Then go to your admin > Options > General and set THAT url values not "fantasy" values! (without index, just folder name!!!)
