Note from Typepad

"Hello,

Thanks for contacting Typepad support.   We have received other bloggers

reporting this issue using Typepad Connect for their comments.     If you

disable TP Connect at Settings > Comments, the comments should appear.

We are currently looking to resolve the issue with our engineers so you can enable Typepad Connect again.  We appreciate your patience. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Marilyn"

    Let me know if this works.

    The comments seem to be back, but are no longer ‘threaded’. This means conversations are not nested and you can’t reply to others’ comments. This appears to be easy to fix and the Typepad help says the following:
    Typepad Connect Comments Display
    Enable Typepad Connect Comments to set up Threaded comments or a numbered list of comments. These options will only appear with Typepad Connect enabled.

      Threaded – With Threaded comments, you will be able to reply to individual comments, and the replies will appear indented below the comment.
      List – A List of comments will appear in the order added by date. Listed comments have the option to be numbered.

    First, they are not “engineers.”
    Second, this is typical internet “amateur hour.”
    Bunch of kids who read “Coding for Dummies” thinking that they can actually implement a system.

    Till recently comments-in-reply to another comment were indented and headed by ” X said in reply to Y” . . .
    It looks like that feature no longer exists. Is it just a problem with my computer screen and system here, or is it a revision of the Comments System to eliminate that particular form and feature?

    Colonel:
    Did you get rid of Disqus because of cost or some other reason?

  7. W Patrck Lang says:

    Disqus became more and more controlling and wating you to accecpt their view of what society should be.

    Good morning Colonel.
    Re the restoration of blog comments, is there any reason why the ‘threaded’ capability (which allows replies to other comments and nests them in ‘conversations’) cannot be restored also? I am no Typepad expert, but it appears to be a simple matter of enabling “Typepad Connect Comments” and selecting “Threaded” format. IMO this capability enhanced the blog and if there is no reason not too I would be in favor of restoring it, if this is possible.

    Normal service is resumed! Thanks Colonel.

    Ahh. . . . it looks like the “reply” feature has returned to us. If this comment nests indented under my own comment just above it, then it has come all the way back to us.
    If so, that is a good thing.
