Is it a feature of WordPress that they automatically close comments on your post about ninety-nine-plus-one things? Because I checked, and they were enabled.
Or they don’t want numbers in the title?
Or has my site been hacked?
Because, seriously, I deleted the original post below because comments would not work.
I wrote a test post to see if comments worked. They did.
I deleted both posts and wrote another. Comments didn’t work. I changed the title, but it was infected with the error of doom. When I clicked on the permalink of the post with the changed title, the original showed up. And, no comments.
If you want to comment on that shall not be named post, do it here.
There is not enough coffee in the world to make me smart enough to fix this.
Has anyone else ever encountered this?

Edit: A search of WP forums provided me with a partial answer. The parsing of post titles is for strings, and numbers are not included. So it just doesn’t like to play nice when the parsing, it is confused. Dates are not considered numbers if that is how your post titles are configured to display, but actual numbers, you will be punished for.
And now, the comments in the post that should be titled “100 Things” but is called “This Title is Cursed” work now.

Oh, too funny – I love reading those things and now your title makes sense to me. After trying to comment about three times, I gave up and finally read the next post. LOL. I’m a little slow. Maybe I need some of your coffee? Funny that your instructors wanted to work for you after geek school. That cracked me up. I admire that you are still learning things about yourself and life in general. To top it all off, you come across as a very well put together person with a great sense of humor despite all you’ve been through. Cheers to you, Witchypoo! :)
