A couple of days ago, I noticed that my WordPress Dashboard didn’t show any of the “recent comments” items — neither comments or trackbacks — and that the data of number of posts and comments said there were “0 comments”. At first I thought it might be that Intense Debate was playing with my mind, so I deactivated it… but nothing happened. I thought maybe it was some WordPress mumbo jumbo, so I let it go for a day or two. But it started to bug me.
I didn’t do any updates to WordPress… or to any of the plugins I used, so it must have been something else inside. With the plugin on, there were comments, but without it all the comments were magically disappeared.
After a few hits, I found this thread on WordPress.
Basically, if you’ve got a self-hostel WordPress blog, go to your Webhost’s control panel. Head over to the mySQL options, choose the appropriate database (the one that holds your WordPress info), and hit repair. That did it.
Some of the trackbacks I did during this database wonk don’t show up. How to send the trackbacks again?
