It turns out that I effectively turned off comments here when I upgraded WordPress the other day.
I forgot that the captcha plug-in I use always screws up when I upgrade WordPress and I have to de-activate and re-activate it to make it all work again.
I always forget.Â I expect I will forget next time I upgrade as well.Â Should I be writing myself a process or checklist for upgrading, or would that be really blurring the lines between work and home?
Not as bad as when I upgraded the plugin itself – that lost me all the custom words I had put in there.Â I think it doesn’t do that anymore because the custom words are held in the SQL database, but I may be mistaken.Â I’ll find out next time an update comes along.
I’m not complaining though.Â It is all free after all.
