    <p>It would be nice to know where the comments are and how to access them.</p>

    Thanks for the comment. 'Suggestions' now links to this page.

    Comments seem to be formatting weirdly occasionally.

    I've put a heading in the Main Menu 'Comments' which will list them in order. And in the 'Index' also on the main menu, you can sort the articles by their comment count or by the date of their most recent comment.

    <p>Clicking on the links to the comments merely opens up a window in which to make a comment. I&#39;ll return in a month or two once you&#39;ve got all the bugs worked out.</p>

    <p>What&#39;s the problem with &lt;&gt; pairs appearing comments?</p>

    A bug in CK editor, now replaced with TinyMCE.

    I couldn't find an "Add new comment" on the "To Be Or Not To Be Hamlet" page.  I had wanted to post Burghley's precepts to his son, along with Polonius's advice to Laertes.  Oxfordians often claim that  the autor of "Hamlet" must have had access to a copy of Burghley's precepts, because (according to Oxfordians) they are so remarkably similar to Polonius's speech in "Hamlet."   But if you actually read them, they are not similar at all.

    Knowing he would agree, I just asked Richard, a fellow ancien-combattant on the imdb board, to do this as an article rather than a a comment . . . He's agreed. We didn't set the site up to carry on discussions in private email boxes ;^) But it's all still very new to everyone.

    How can I add a comment to your "Biblical Revelation" page? Thank you.

    Comments were going to remain closed until the 27th but there has been quite a lot of interest generated by the links on ShakesVere so we've opened them. Sadly the way the CMS works means that this has to be done individually for each article. We just missed that one.

    It's open now.

    Thanks! But am now curious as to why you require readers to log-in to view comments.

    Haven't addressed permissions for unauthenticated users yet. We won't do that until the weekend. The site is still in build mode. I'll also do something that will let you format comments more neatly and allow links to work. Some of this stuff is non-trivial. but it's in the list.

    Thanks for your consideration! Surely you'd agree that if your posts are viewable by the public, then any comments should be also viewable. And thank you for re-formatting my comment... I was "horrified" when it squished together! :)

    I didn't reformat it . . . . I just pulled the right lever instead of the wrong one. Still haven't looked into why comments aren't visible to non authenticated accounts. It's not intentional.

    O hey! Comments are now showing publicly. Thanks for the "fix"! Best, Knit

    Your avatar was looking lonely so I've uploaded one to keep it company.

    How do I add a comment to your "AN-review" (Shapiro's review) page? Thanks!

    Hey, wuzzup with the funky non-formatting on the Twain page? Thanks for your help :)

    "Add content" does not give "Better Candidates" as an option.  I guess I'll put Florio in the articles section and let you sort it out.  On second thought, I will hold on to it until you can let me know what to do with it.

    OK. We have been hand hacking those into place since it wasn't one of the original Content Types, but it is now.

    You set the hooks by connecting it to the 'Better Candidates' menu and the eyes by giving it a URL Pathname beginning with 'BC-’ e.g. BC-florio. The article should then appear in the right menu and all the indexing links are made by the path prefix. IYSWIM.

    I have no idea what most of that means.  I managed to get it posted, but it does not seem to appear under "better candidates" so I assume I deVered it up somehow.

    Thank you for the repairs and appropriate photographic additions.  For a person whose first computer was a then-state-of-the-art 286 with Lotus 123, I really suck at this whole computer thing.

    Nope, you got pretty much all the way there and you can now add Drupal, the web's most complicated CMS, to the IT section of your CV.

     

    I loved Lotus 123. I still have a working copy, somewhere, on a Compaq portable.

    I hope that someone will write an artible about the Prince Tudor theories.  The notion that the Earl of Oxford was the son of Queen Elizabeth and/or the father of her child was once regarded as fringe theory among Oxfordians, but it seems to be gaining more and more traction.

    Would you like to do this, Richard?

    The more cunning Oxfordians have backed away since Anonymous came out. I don't think the full horror dawned until it got up on screen.

    But as an example of how far they are prepared to stretch history (and biology) in their support, it deserves its place.

    Paul Barlow has written such an article, which can be found at Wikipedia.
