This blog uses Mephisto – which is pretty cool and works a treat – but I realised to my horror the other day that the commenting system appeared to have stopped working.

It drove me bananas! Why would it work one day, but not the next! Why would it work on my local box but not on production?!?

Turns out there’s a known bug with Mephisto when used with Apache that prevents additional comments from being added to an article that already has a comment.

You can fix this by adding the following line to the bottom of your .htaccess file:

DirectorySlash Off 

And voila – comments will start working again.

Thanks to Jason Gill for this tip.
