Things are looking up. It appears that WP has completed the migration of my posts from the ether of the pro plan back to the premium plan. I tried to catch all the links, but you know how this is. Let me know if something doesn’t work.
Otherwise, I think we’re good to go! Hurray!
As soon as I switched back, I started receiving and seeing comments again. In my humble estimation, I would say the pro plan (which can’t be renewed, by the way) was a failure. WordPress took a hit on that one when they said they would offer two plans: Pro (paid) or Free. Many users left the site.
Now that the original pricing has been reinstated, things should simmer down. If you’re still on the pro plan or self-hosted, I expect we will have problems with comments for a long while.
My biggest issue with the whole mess was WP said I would remain on wp.com. That was not true. You get bumped out into the ether like a self hosted blog. I saw no reason to remain, when the issue with comments continued. I couldn’t renew the pro plan, so it made sense to leave now and apply any credit toward the premium plan.
Hopefully, you will be able to add your poetry challenge link to Mr. Linky now. Let me know if you have issues.
Thanks so much. ~Colleen~
