so, everything is working fine, but i haven't had any comments in a while so i tried posting a test comment and after clicking "post" after filling in the comments, an internal error comes up. any suggestions as to what could be wrong? stand-in-the-rain.net is the site thanks!
I was having this same problem. gm-comments.cgi and gm.cgi are CHMODded correctly to 755, but every time someone goes to post a comment, an internal server error popped up. I eventually just had to reinstall the original gm-comments.cgi file from the installation package. That seemed to work fine. I suspect when I opened the file originally, some extraneous program grut got stuck in there and mucked up the code.
The comments are working well, now (still working on syndication).
I don't mean to hijack the post, but since it's semi related I'll post here so I don't have to start a new thread. Appologies if this has been answered somewhere, but I cannot post comments on GM 1.7.1, I've tried using IE and Firefox.
I have Force Preview and Commenter Verify both checked, however I don't see any commenter verifier, and after pressing "Post It" it looks as if its just going to the same page and no comment is posted.
But I think the search for these boards is kinda sucky, because google does not crawl them well/often enough.
Basically, I made a goof when I implemented Force Preview, I assumed that the "Post It" button had a attribute "name=postit" which it did on my instance, but not by default. My apologies for this. If you modify your templates for comment previewing, change: <input type="submit" value="Post It" /> to: <input type="submit" name="postit" value="Post It" />
