Hi Donncha -
I used this plugin successfully for a while, and it really helped me wheedle out the wheat from the chaff.
However, a few months ago, it appears to have stopped working. I've browsed the other discussions on the topic, and here's where I'm at:
1) The 32-digit stylesheet is appearing in the source code. When I load the stylesheet manually into the browser, it shows blank.
2) However, when I check my cookies, I am not seeing a corresponding 32-digit cookie having been set.
In the source code I see this:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.zombiephiles.com/3ad9ac3bc26159d7498579acd530eee1.css?t=1719086234" type="text/css" media="screen" />
However, the only cookies I see are comment_author_email and comment_author (which shows as [Blocked by CFC] after I've tried to test comments).
I've tried deactivating the plugin and deleting it, then re-uploading the plugin and reactivating; however, this doesn't seem to be doing the trick.
I'd love to get CFC working again, since I get 100+ comments slipping past Akismet monthly that CFC stops; however, it's also stopping ALL other comments (except trackbacks) since the cookie isn't being set.
On the off-chance that there's a conflict with another plugin that I'm running, I'm including the current plugin list. Not all plugins are currently up-to-date.
Add to Any: Share/Bookmark/Email Button - .9.9.3
Akismet - 2.2.6
All in One SEO Pack - 1.5.7
Cookies for Comments - 0.5.1
Executable PHP widget - 1.2
Google Analytics - 2.5
Google XML Sitemaps - 3.1.4
Kimili Flash Embed - 2.0.1

SEO Title Tag - 2.3.3
Twitter Tools - 1.6

Viper's Video Quicktags - 6.1.20
WP-Polls - 2.40
WP-Polls Widget - 2.40
WP Cache Inspect - 0.8.2
WPG2 - 3.0.7
WP Super Cache - 0.9.4.3
Offhand, I don't know which of those would be causing problems with CFC, except possibly WP Super Cache, but that's a commonly used plugin so I'm sure we would already have heard of incompatibilities with yours.
Any thoughts on how I can find some more information about the problem? Are there DB tables that I can drop to "reset" the plugin, or is that accomplished by deactivating it? I'm not entirely a novice, but I'm not entirely an expert either; however, I'm good with instructions.
Eagerly looking forward to hearing back from you about this issue. Thanks, as always!
