More help

I'm still having a few problems with my blog. Now I've done something to the comments that I can't undo. I started again and got the template from the Moveable type site but it came up with something differnet from the previous comments template I was using and wanted commenters to register. Now my site doesn't ask people for their name when they comment, only their URL. How do I make it so it asks for their name as well?

Sorry, I know nothing, but (somewhat belatedly) I strongly suggest saving copies of your templates before you mess with them.

Sorry. Belated. :-(

If you want to, email me the code you are having problems with and I will take a peek at it for you. I'm not brilliant but I did work as a web/database designer for a few years and am happy to help if I can :) Jen

Hey Jen, it's cool - Morgan also uses movebale type so I just stole some of the code from his blog (or rather, he moved some of the code from his blog to my blog). So it's all sorted now. But next time I screw it up I'll be sure to call on you for help.
