I’ve been planning on turning on comments again for a while, but there is the issue of a sacrificed goat preventing me.
Around 2 1/2 years ago, I turned off comments on my blog, I think it was MT2.6-ish. I also went through the MT install and trashed all the files relating to comments. I’m fairly sure I followed some instructions I found on the MT forums for this.
I’ve been thinking about turning comments back on, but having updated to 3.34 and being such a long time, I can’t remember what I did, or how to undo it.
The only thing I have to go on is I have the warning, “Note: Commenting is currently disabled at the system level” in the feedback settings, and I haven’t been able to find any info on what this refers to.
I’m planning on putting the comments into the templates in the next week or so as a distraction from grant writing, but it’s the backend that has me completely mystified.
I’m fairly ok-ish with mucking around in MT, but I have absolutely no idea where to start, and Movable Type’s search function is utter crap.
Does anyone know either how to re-enable comments from such a state, or how to reinstall the comments part of MT (along with some good anti-spam plugins)?
Please email me if you can help, thanks.
