  • Resolved theillustratedlife


    Hey guys. I’m a student cartoonist launching a webcomic and cartoon series. With the popularity of RSS, importance of having a community, and all of the other things that would be really hard to do by yourself, I have turned to blogging. I like The Animation podcast so much, I thoguht I’d give WordPress a try, and I love it! So thanks to everybody who’s helped with it.

    Now to my problem. I noticed today that there is a little square in the comments line that doesn’t go anywhere. It looks like a submit button, except it has a “>” on it. If you click it, it times out trying to contact the database. You’ll probably get a better understanding of it if you just go to my site ( and see for yourself. I’ve got CG-Referrer, Google Sitemaps, WP-Dash, and a couple comment widgets installed.

    After I get a little more free time and have a few more comics posted, I’m gonna really start customizing this thing. It’s a great start right out of the box, and that’s just flatout awesome! Go WordPress & Tech Wench! If anyone has some reccommendations for my site, I’d love to hear them.

    I’m really looking forward to this. Keep up the great work everybody!

    That >> ?

    No. I think you have to be logged in to see it. I took a screenshot. It’s circled in red.

    Thanks. =)

    It only happens to authors Level 4 and above. I’m gonna try an slueth it out. Any thoughts?

    l/p: wordpress/>>>

    What’s “vr button”? Is that one of your comments plugins?

    I’ve never heard of VR Button

    It’s being added to the bottom of the .storycontent div.

    <form name="vr_begin_input" action="" method="post" class="vr_inputinline"><input type="hidden" name="vr_begin" value="2" /><input type="submit" name="submit" value=">" class="vr_button" /></form>

    Wow – how did you find that?! And also, where is that div? I found a reference to it in my theme, but I want to know where the class for it is located so I can comment it out.

    Thanks again!

    I doubt it’s coming from the theme itself, though. Seeing as how I made the theme, I sure didn’t put it in there.

    Try disabling all of your plugins and see if it shows up still. Then enable your plugins one by one and see if/when it shows up.

    I’ve tried that already. It is still there. Bytheway – great theme! I was afraid I’d have to spend a couple weekends getting something quaint and professional to try and hide the fact that it’s a blog. Now I’m planning on leaving it like that indefinitely! If I get a functioning tipjar in there, I’ll have to forward some of that over to you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Anyway, the first thing I tried was killing the plugins. I tried it again, too, and it’s still there. Do you know what file the storycontent is pulled from?

    Thanks again!

    If you have the latest version, it’s in index.php and page.php

    Unless you edited it, it should display like this:

    <div class="storycontent">
    <?php the_content(__('(more...)')); ?>

    Hmmm. Well, I found it in your Page.php when you first mentioned it, but I didn’t see anything about a VR Button.

    This is all I have in Index:
    /* Short and sweet */
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, true);

    And those are the lines I have in Page:
    <div class=”storycontent”>
    <?php the_content(__(‘(more…)’)); ?>

    This is perplexing.

    Aha! Something called CG Related. It’s a plugin from the CG pack. I took everything out of my plugins folder and put them back one by one. I dunno why I didn’t catch it when I turned off all the plugins in the Dashboard before. Caching glitch maybe?

    Anyway, thanks for your help. I don’t even know what the bugger does and I don’t like the Stats pack anyway. BAS put lines of crap on my homepage (beta error messages). Anyone have a good stats package?
