Technical Difficulties

Hi all — images got stripped from the feed somehow today as I was experimenting with a new social bookmarking link plugin. The images should be restored now. Don’t worry, the change was neither intentional nor permanent!

Also, I heard from a reader that if you click over from the feed to comment, you see someone else’s name and email address in the comment fields. Obviously that’s bad. Would you mind clicking over to see if that’s true, and if it is, let me know which browser/device on which you’re viewing the site? Feel free to leave a fake email address.

Thanks and sorry for the confusion!

    From Firefox 3.6.8 I got my own name and address, but my email address was spelled wrong. How odd.

  2. Cathie says:

    No errors with Firefox 3.5.11 that I can see. Works in IE too (just can’t find the version).

  3. Courtney says:

    Not sure what version of Firefox I’m running but my name came up fine. Perhaps someone else used that reader’s computer? :)

  4. Silka says:

    I clicked over from Google Reader using a Mac with Firefox 3.5.9 and there’s a name/address here.

  5. Deirdre says:

    Same as Silka. Someone else’s name and email, and website. Google reader, Mac, Firefox 3.6.8.

  6. Nina Tovish says:

    No problem with email address etc. here… Safari 5/Mac.

  7. Sarah says:

    No name/email showed up for me, and everything looks fine otherwise (also, I had images in Reader on all your posts today). Google Reader, feed:, Vista, Firefox 3.6.8.

  8. Jennifer says:

    Yes, someone else info when I came to leave comment~~~

    No problem with IE 7.
    But some of the Horrockses images haven’t displayed for me. Sometimes that happens and then I see them the next day, but I have yet to see these. One example is this one:
    from the August 9 post.

    I clicked over from my google reader and am using Firefox 3.6.8. In the “Leave a Reply” section there was already a name and an address typed in that wasn’t mine.

  11. Jeanne says:

    I clicked over from Google reader, using Firefox 3.5.6 and the name/e-mail address fields were populated with the info for the commenter before me (Shannon).

  12. Hilary says:

    I clicked through from Vienna (the RSS reader, not the city) to Safai on a Mac and all my info is prepopulated and correct.

    (Your site is one of my favorites, and I’m not generally averse to change, but I can’t say that I’m enthusiastic about the new design.)

  13. Amy Hodge says:

    I clicked through from Google Reader using Firefox 3.6.6 on my Mac and I see my information in the comments form. Looks good!

  14. SheilaC says:

    Google Reader, Firefox 3.6, PC

    My own name and email address, looking good.

    maybe it is fixed??


  15. Johanna says:

    hum, yes! I had the info of Rosy Lady (with email and blog) filled out which is kind of funny, but I guess that she would mind someone else posting under her name!
    I am using firefox 3.0.19, but I guess it is not a problem with my browser more likely there is something wrong with the cookie setting :(

  16. Caro says:

    Oh thank goodness it was only something temporary. I thought you’d switched to truncated feeds and I was going to send you a nasty note. Heh.
    Name/Mail/Website comes out just fine for me with all my deets.

  17. Mimi K says:

    Google reader and the info for Mimi K. was on mine.

  18. Sandy N. says:

    Okay, I’m stupid. I actually forgot to take Mimi K.’s info out before I posted. Me thinks it’s time for another cup of coffe.=)

  19. Beth says:

    Clicked over from Google Reader on a Mac using Safari 5.0.1 and saw my own name and info!

  20. shannon says:

    I’m on G1 phone, and the forms are blank for me. Of course, there’s only a 50/50 chance that I will be able to get the word captcha to work, but that’s my phone’s fault.
