Don't freak out or anything…but while trying to install Disqus on my Typepad blog all of my 6,000 comments are no longer there.
They aren't lost forever…but are stored in a text document with an error that I am unable to open or modify to the qualifications of Disqus in order to import all of the old comments.
Yes folks this is the dirty awful underbelly of blogging when you are not an expert in HTML or any other programming language.
I am still hopeful that someone from Typepad will be able to solve this problem as the people from Disqus are clearly not willing to simply go in and fix the one line of code that is the issue. Yes they can pinpoint it for me, but that is it. My kingdom for a computer programmer!
So no worries folks…
be happy! : )
