Missing background in Twenty Eleven child theme (6 posts)

    I am having som problems with the background at the site http://lankerevyen.no. The background dissapeared when I updated the home page. My blog-site is working as it should, but all the static pages does not show the background.

    I've tried a lot of things, including updating everything to the newest version and resetting my custom CSS without any luck.

    What can I do to make the background come back?

  2. That URL is so laden with so much comment spam, the page is almost 10 megabytes for the HTML alone.

    You've got 10,548 comments being displayed there on that one page (I used wget to retrieve the HTML and counted the comments) and it all looks like SPAM.

    I can't even tell if you've been hacked or what, but you need to get your SPAM comments under control or no one will even look at that page.

    Ok. I have been hiding the comments section, because it's not going to be used. Didn't know that. But is there any way I can shut down the comments service? Like blocking all incoming comments?

  4. I have been hiding the comments section

    With CSS? That's not good.

    You can turn off new comments via


    and disable the Default article settings.

    For the existing comments, if they were all tagged as spam then you could use phpMyAdmin or straight mysql commands to just delete them.

    DELETE FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_approved = 'spam'

    Make sure you have a full file and database backup of your WordPress installation first before poking at the database.


    If they're not tagged as SPAM, it becomes more difficult.

    Ok. Thanks for the help!

    But can I contiune to hide comments-section with CSS as long as I keep the SPAM under control (as in blocking all incoming comments)?

  6. You can do what you like and should. :D

    But just hiding the comments via CSS is really infective . If you disable all comments and delete all the old ones (that you do not want) then that should fix your problem.
