As of 10:30 PM EDT on Tuesday, May 29, the former commenting feature beneath every article has been REPLACED.   The old system was provided by a company called "DISQUS." 

They made some changes I didn't like a few weeks ago and I planned to replace them this coming Friday, June 1. 

That timeline got accelerated when DISQUS stopped working on my site tonight.  I don't know why it stopped, but it did.  So I deployed the new system immediately.

It will take me a while to learn all the "ins-and-outs" of this new system. I still have to learn how to allow Avatars, how to filter Trolls, and how to regulate "GUEST" posters who may abuse the system.

Please bear with me as I learn . . . I'm as new at this as you are!

      I'm not sure what you mean by "secured?" I have already halted the uploading of images and files because in yeas past, I got an eye full of porn and disgusting fetish photos. So that's already blocked (I think). I can do pics and file uploads as an admin, but no one else OUGHT to be able to.

      I can Blacklist a user or IP Block a Guest if they abuse.

      Was there something else you had in mind?

    Thank you for the rapid response of your new comment system. I read: "This commment is unpublished. I understand that my "commment" isn't published.

      That was an error on my part. I was working with the "Permissions" part of the Config file and I unchecked "auto-post" without realizing that put EVERY message into Moderation. NO THANKS! I fixed that real fast, then approved any pending posts.

    We appreciate your efforts. Many thanks. I tried to check in as a subscribed member. It failed. So this is presented as a "Guest"
