So being the genius that I am, I realized I basically had comments disabled this entire time. After receiving massive spam for my previous site, I was paranoid about this one getting overloaded with spambots and overdid it a bit. Basically I created a Catch 22 situation without realizing it where you had to have made an approved comment in the past (which no has has) to make a new comments. So I fixed those settings and even got rid of the mandatory mod approval for the time being. You still need an account to post a comment but now posting comments is actually possible (hopefully). I do have better ways of dealing with spam now so hopefully I’m not spending half my time deleting messages like with my last website. If things get annoying again, I might bring back comments needing mod approval. But if I do that, I’ll make sure it’s actually possible to leave a comment this time.
