A reader recently pointed out that the site isn’t working properly — comments were not showing up on posts. This is a bit of a problem, since the plugins have a lot of good discussion and troubleshooting information in the comments.
For the time being I’ve replaced the theme with one of the generic WordPress themes. That fixes the comment problem, but may cause one or two oddities elsewhere. Just an FYI to readers.
Meh. The custom theme was getting old anyways. Maybe time for an upgrade.
