Problems with comments

I’m still trying to iron out problems with various parts of the site. I’ve just switched off the anti spam device, so people should be able to get in now. If you are experiencing problems, please let me know in the comment zone below, or by email?

    Mick,
    hope everything works out. By the way, the paypal only allows people from the UK to donate as English county is a required field.
    As a result, when you change the country from UK it automatically returns to it.

  • Mick Fealty

    Will take it up with Paypal directly.

  • joecanuck

    I’ve made a number of donations from Canada through Paypal with no problems.

  • George

    Do you already have an account Joe?

    Try entering in new details at the link down the side and see if it allows you.

    It worked. Mick just got himself another fiver.

  • George

    Joe,
    I still can’t change the UK as country of origin when I try the link on this page.

    You filled out the information anew as if you didn’t have an account?

  • joeCanuck

    No George.
    I just logged into my existing account

    I’ve queried it George. I’ll get straight back if/when I get an answer. Thanks (yet again) Joe!! And also William, Cillian, and Paul!

    Joe,
    the problem seems to be if you don’t have an account, the link here only accepts UK addresses. But I’m sure Mick will be glad of the fiver…

    George,

    You need to fill in an amount before changing the country.

  • Slugger O’Toole Admin

    Thanks for that advice Mark (and your continuing support)! Thanks too to Caitlin.

    I’m sure not everyone finds Slugger to their liking, all of the time (including me), but even I was getting mildly distraught at the thought that Slugger might, as I think Henry put it in that other place, have been unintentionally been decommissioned.

  • I tried a couple of times to post a comment @ http://sluggerotoole.com/index.php/weblog/comments/a-tentative-return-to-service/ just checking if this works

  • The comment I was trying to post was
    ‘Mick it was http://co.mments.com I’d recommend not the cocomment :-)’

  • Slugger O’Toole Admin

    Why one rather than the other?

  • I chose the one I found easier to use 🙂

    Mick,

    I don’t think all comments are being reflected in the most recent comments bar. Pete’s ‘Looking in the wrong direction?’ blog isn’t appearing for me.

    The above didn’t cause an update for me either

  • mark

    Glitch over, ignore the above.
