    Youre talking about the “visit …xxx” ?

    that link is a function of your theme.. if you look at the where the commenter’s name is above that .. there is no link unless one has been provided.

    Look inside your theme’s comments.php and make sure that its using <?php comment_author_link() ?> for that particular thing. Thats exactly what that template_tag is for.

    I entered <?php comment_author_link() ?> where it previously had <?php comment_author_url(); ?>

    It now goes to a different link, but it’s still dead. This is for commenters who have NOT entered a web address.

    Here’s a monkey wrench: The commenter’s link goes to a 404 in Internet Explorer if they didn’t enter an address…

    BUT, in Firefox, it just defaults to the main link of the post they are commenting on.

    WHY would this happen??

    Check it out: Click on any of the commenter’s “visit” link.




    I dunno — it seems I remember a similar issue on another blog, and the problem turned out to be, of all things, a plugin.
