    When you create a ‘standard’ blog hosted on 1and1.com then comments and other features (such as classifications) don’t work.

    If you click on the comment for a post, such as

    myblog.com/2008/05/03/my-post#comment

    nothing happens — you stay on the home page.

    This is because there is a mismatch between the contents of the .htaccess file and the permalink option. The blogs are held on a separate server, behind a firewall, so there is no way of accessing them.

    Solution:

    Go to the control panel, Options > Permalinks

    Select any other permalink option, and press ‘Update Permalinks’.
    Then reselect the “year/month/day” format, and press ‘Update Permalinks‘ again.

    This causes the .htaccess file to be updated, and your comments and other features will now work correctly.
