Support » Plugins and Hacks » New Akismet API key wiped out years of comments
2 years, 3 months ago
I use WordPress through Yahoo Small Business.
This morning I was prompted to get my own Akismet API key.
When I did, and updated my Akismet plugin with the new key, it wiped out all of the comments — many years’ worth — in the WordPress dashboard.
Also, I now get a 404 error when I try to submit a test comment through my blog (http://chrisbarton.info/blog/2014/06/games-books-qa-carly-kocurek.html/comment-page-#comment-)
Any ideas for how to go about recovering the old comments and allowing/moderating new ones?
Thanks a bunch for any help you can provide.
