    I tried to get Jetpack Comments to work on my development site but it just shows the error “Invalid request signature.” in the comment box….. I cant seem to find any way of deactivating Jetpack comments either…What should i do?

    I’ve tried another theme ( Twenty Thirteen ) without success and also deactivating all other plugins, still no success

    I’m using a child theme of twenty eleven, version 1,7 and Jetpack version 2.8

    Hi! I tried to visit the site but I get a database error, so I can’t tell you quite what the problem was. Marking this as resolved for now, but if you need further assistance, please let me know!

    Same problem here…for example, at (but any webpage that’s a WordPress post on my site there has this same exact issue)…what gives??

    I had to restore my site due to either Bluehost hijinks (not uncommon, unfortunately) and/or an official Jetpack hack that’s now outdated and causing issues ( and now I’ve got this same “invalid request signature” error all of a sudden….

    All advice appreciated!!

    Ah, well, just deactivated and deleted Jetpack, then reinstalled it and reconnected to…this rectified the situation — whatever it was!

    I am also experiencing this issue with the comment box stating, “Invalid request signature.”

    This is our blog home:

    We deactivated JetPack and reactivated it and it is still not working. Also double checked “Allow people to post comments on new articles” under Discussion and this box is still checked. Unchecked and re-checked it as well, to no avail. Please help.

    @lhollar Could you please start your own thread, as per the Forum Welcome?

    You’ll also want to deactivate all other comment or anti spam plugins on your site, as one of them might conflict with Jetpack Comments.

    Thank you!
