    I’ve gotten emails telling me that, when readers try to leave comments on my site, they can’t get to an operative form for comments. Is this a WordPress problem or specific to my blog? If the former, will WordPress fix it soon? If the latter, what can I do to fix it?

    It’s Internet Explorer – and the form is there but right at the bottom of the page.
    Try removing some of the larger images in the sidebar?

    Hey – how did you get that ring of conservative sites thing in there? What widget are you using?

    Vivianpaige: First, you have to join the Ring of Conservative sites (you can link to it and find an application through my blog). She’ll give you a Code and I simply entered it in a text box — and it worked! Big surprise, since so many Codes that I got in Blogger don’t work in WordPress.

    bookworm – lib that I am, I was just curious about how you placed the code :) Wasn’t sure if it was a text box or not.

    Vivian, it’s a text widget. Says so in the page source.

    drmike – I have no idea how to look at the page source. Can you tell me?

    Vivian, the option should be under your View menu within your broswer or try doing a right click in a blank spot within the page and looking for something like “View Source.” If you tell me your browser, I can walk you through it.

    I’m using Mozilla 1.7.12. I think I found the view page source. Had no idea that info was there. (Of course, I only have a little idea of what I’m looking at, being a newbie with HTML.) Thanks! Now perhaps I can figure out how other people do things.

    I didn’t know how to turn on a computer two years ago. lol You’ll eventually learn and get the hang of it. Either ask others for help or Google it to find information. I spent weeks trying to find on Google how to make a clickable image for my last blog. But I found it! Also Google html codes or html tags. Those might help.

    Vivian, what I normally do when I’m looking through page source is do a search for text near the item in question.

    For example:

    Up above we’re talking about the One True Ring, oh excuse me. I mean the “Ring of Conservative Sites.” When I view the page source, I do a search for that text and see what’s around there. You’ll note that one the line above it is a div tag labeled:

    <div class="textwidget">

    Hope this helps,
