Dear WordPress Boffins,
I understand you have to maintain the system, and introduce new features etc, etc., but some of the unintended consequences are really annoying! Like not being able to look at my comments for three days.
Then this morning I pressed the comments notification icon, and lo and behold, my comments were back! I thought the problem, whatever it was, was fixed, but tonight at 8 pm it was back :
What you are looking at is a connection that never connects.
But wait, there’s more. Something similar happens with the quick post feature. I can create a new post without any problems, however when I try to save the draft, or preview the post, I get this :
You guessed it, the never-ending connection again.
By contrast, everything on the old dashboard works just fine.
Now comes the interesting part. I use the Opera browser, and it is very strict with html, so I thought I’d try my blog using IE, which I loathe. And lo, comments work again, which tells me there is something wrong with the WP code, because IE is notoriously slack.
I can’t believe you would optimize your code just for IE! Please do something to fix this situation because it’s becoming unbearable.
Yours most unhappily,
