    I have a weird thing that started happening today.

    First, I updated the Sharebar and another plugin (can’t remember the name of the second because I’ve since deleted both in my troubleshooting attempts.)

    I added some Google Plus code to the header and function files.

    Now, after all that (so you think it would be related), comments have stopped working on my blog, When you try to comment on a post, it never shows up. Not on the page or in the comments section of admin. Not as spam. Then I receive the comment emails, but now they are blank. They look like this:

    New comment on your post "Nails of the Day: Subtle Adorableness"
    Author :  (IP:  , )
    E-mail :
    URL    :
    Whois  :

    I looked up this problem on the boards and it appears that plenty of other people have had this problem over the last 5 years, and no one has ever found a solution. Hopefully today will be the day!

    Here are the steps I took to try to solve it:
    – Disabled Sharebar and the other plugin
    – Removed the Google Plus code I’d added earlier
    – Disabled all plugins
    – Deleted Sharebar and the other plugin, just in case
    – Changed my theme to Twenty Twelve and back

    None of that worked. I’m think that it might just be a fluke and that it has nothing to do with the changes I made earlier in the day. Any suggestions?
