Why Eye I’s Ya (Update)

I just upgraded some software on the site, and apparently the lower-case letter “i” is disappearing from comments. I swear this is not a practical joke, and if you are currently having this problem, please comment below. Apparently, the capital letter “I” is still safe to use.

Update: This is now fixed for sure. Someone else reported this problem and identified how to patchΒ it. I assume the offending software will be updated again shortly to correct the issue permanently.

    It was definitely happening to me. I won’t know until I post this whether it still is, of course. This is an interesting development, considering the A key on my keyboard broke the other night, so until I found a way to tape it on so I could use it temporarily till my new keyboard arrived, I would have had both A-less and I-less posts! πŸ™‚

    ETA: Yup, the Is are still missing. Oopsie!

    ETA2: Interesting — they appear in the comment after I edit it, but not when I originally posted it!

    You know what they say – “There’s no ‘I’ in ‘team'”…or something! πŸ˜€

      Afraid I was also late and missed out. Been a long day. Guess we can all type igloo, iguana, incognito, inconsequential, incandescent, idiosyncratic….

    Mike, you shouldn’t need to be upgrading software on the site unless you really want/like to. Try looking at a cheap hosted service like Squarespace, it can be less hassle

      Thanks for the suggestion. I’m a web developer specializing in WordPress, so it’s not a hassle for me.
