Passionate Development From Journeyman to Master

Lyceum comment was not working

Found out that some people were unable to post comment on this blog (and most likely on any other blogs as well). I am still trying to find out the problem, I have been debugging for few hours, I think I know where to look now, although I am not sure what is causing it..

Update: After poking around, finally found out that the problem is with the 2 Wordpress templates that I use. The comments.php should contain this line of code:

<?php do_action('comment_form',$post->ID);>

before the submit button code. This line of code will produce 2 hidden fields one is “b” which is the blog identifier and the other one I think is token value (do check the source code of the comment page).

This is a somewhat very surprising fact to me, this means that WordPress themes will not work properly out of the box for Lyceum (surely someone must have put this information somewhere.. maybe I should read the Lyceum’s howtos and forum.. )
