[a-2018_05_27] – New theme installed. Nested comments now enabled.

[a-2018_05_25] – Plugin that manages nested comments feature disabled due to a recent plugin update that started causing server issues. Non-nested comments are a limitation of the current theme being used. As such, we are currently evaluating alternative theme options and may soon be migrating to a new site theme that supports nested comments.

[a-2017_02_10] – Comments hidden by default to improve page load time. Click on the “Load Comments” button to unhide. Also added a dedicated Recent Comments Page showing the 30 most recent comments along with 100-word excerpts for each.

[a-2017_01_29] – Successfully completed installation and testing of new responsive theme for Get Real Post. This theme optimises GRP for viewing over most devices and screen sizes.

[a-2012_07_25] – Over the last couple of days ending today (25 Jul 2012) we tested a new comment facility – Jetpack Comments which integrates login/registration for commenting on GRP from popular social networking accounts like Facebook and Twitter. Though the user interface was excellent, its function was inconsistent across a variety of browsers (comments sometimes did not appear or, when replying to an existing comment, did not nest within the the intended discussion thread). We’ve disabled the feature for now and will test future releases of that module as they come out.

[a-2012_06_28] – Some IP addresses known to be sources of spam and used by troll accounts issued by Skybroadband (Philippines) have been blacklisted from commenting on Get Real Post. Content should still be visible otherwise. Some legitimate visitors that share the same IP addresses may be impacted. Please contact your ISP if you feel you have been unfairly affected.

[a-2011_08_29] – Mail server not functioning properly. If you are experiencing issues registering an account, send us an email at quoting the user ID you used to register so we can reset your password.

[a-2011_04_14] – Deactivated Subscribe to Comments Reloaded widget v1.6 for now
Mail server seems to not be functioning properly and therefore subscribers to comments in specific articles don’t get notified by email whenever new comments are posted. Will investigate and post an update later.

[a-2011_04_08] – Set post URL structure to date-month-post_name mode.
Posts shared under the previous URL structure (domain + post number) will still work as these refer directly to the post ID. However, all Facebook “Share” and “Like” stats which refer to the old URL structure have been reset to zero as of today (08 April 2011).

[a-2011_03_25] – Testing Subscribe to Comments Reloaded widget v1.6
We recently installed this widget to allow visitors to opt to receive an email notification whenever a new comments is made on articles of their choice. We’re currently testing it and would appreciate feedback on how well this feature is working.
