I’ve done some searching through the forums and have not found something helpful to my issue. I’ve just recently installed WP 2.5.1, and I installed the Qwilm! theme as well. The only modifications that I made to the theme were to add a header image and to create a separate template page for one Page that I needed to work a little differently. The rest of the theme was left untouched.
Today I decided to test how comments appear on the site, so I commented. When I hit the Submit button, the following error flashed very briefly above the comment box: “Invalid data. Please go back and try again.” Then the message disappeared, and an error was displayed regarding Gravatars not being available. I went to the comments template and deleted the <div> for the Gravatar, but left everything else untouched.
Now we come to my real problem (I’m sorry for the run-around, I just want to provide as thorough info. as I can!). I tried to comment again. The same flashing message appeared, but when it disappeared, in place of the comments area appeared my list of Pages, with the comments form below it! I clicked on the heading of the post to refresh it, and there was my comment, pretty as ever. I have now done this a couple of times more, always with the same result.
Anyone have any idea what’s going on? Since I made no other modifications to the comments code, I assumed it would work without a hitch. Please try your hand at it if you wish: http://www.the-limelight.net
I appreciate your help! I have already tried to find help through the individual theme creator’s website, but it is no longer available.
