Problems Making WildSnow Comments?

Post by blogger | August 9, 2006      

It’s come to my attention that some blog readers have had trouble posting comments. Problems were probably being caused by the math anti-spam verification plugin I was using. I changed the math anti spam verification to a different plugin (a verbal quiz), please give commenting another shot if you’ve been frustrated in the past.

Also, to prevent spam I still have to moderate and approve all first-time comments, so you may still get a delay before your comment is visible. After we approve your first comment, approval is automatic and you’ll see your posts immediately.

Thanks for sticking with us on all this, and my apologies if you’ve had any problems.

‘best, Lou

    Let’s try if it works!

    In the mean time I had a question: Do you know where to get heel lifters for Freerides? Maybe the front braket too while I am at it.

    P.S. can you see where I am going with this?

    1 set of bindings for 1+ set of skis.

    Yes I have attempted to contact several times in last several months, to no avail, I wrote it off as editing by the moderator.

    G, thanks for trying again, I can’t think of more than one or two comments I deleted that were not spam, so indeed, your posts probably didn’t take because of the spam filter.

    That said, I do have automatic block for posts with profanity, so everyone be advised of that.

    Dimitriy, the only source I know of in North America for Freeride parts is Black Diamond customer service.

    Thanks, Lou

    Looks like it’s still the same plugin, not that it ever bothered me?

    How come the typeface is so teeny when I view comments? Is this a setting on my machine? The font is truly miniscule.

    The math plugin looks similar but I changed it. Seems to be working now.

    I’ll change the comments font to one size larger.

    ‘best, Lou
