Typekey Problems

Just a quick note to say that Typekey is doing something weird to my older comments. When people who are registered for Typekey make comments on entries that are more than ten days old, the comment is approved but doesn’t appear on my blog, which is just a little annoying. I’ve contacted the Typekey folks and hopefully they’ll be able to fix the problem.

By the way, has anyone else had this problem? Or are the blogging gods singling me out?

    Hmm, this happens to me, too. I think it’s a combination of TypeKey and MT-Blacklist that’s causing this behavior.

    TypeKey says, “This commenter is approved,” but MT-Blacklist says, “This entry is too old, so you have to approve this comment before it will appear.”

    Of course, since TypeKey has already approved the comment, you don’t have the option of approving it.

    Try saving the entry again from MT interface. See what that does.

    Still not working. I’m tempted to turn off Typekey since older entries require my approval anyway. It’s not clear what purpose it serves since most spam comments are filtered out by the Blacklist.

    Good point.

    Turning off Typekey for now. If spam becomes a problem again, I’ll turn it back on. If I hear from the Typekey folks about how to resolve that problem, I’ll start it back up again.
