Back Up Your Blog BEFORE Making Changes in your Template/Layout etc

I thought I had backed up my blog but instead I backed up my comments.

Then I tried to put a jump break in my current post (Friday).

It didn't work properly so I took out the html code I had added in the Edit section of the Layout Post section to change the color, size and bold of the "Click here for more" text. I was careful to remove only what I had added BUT - my COMMENT link (which shows is there in the Layout) is not longer showing on last 2 posts.

No Comment Link

I have put my email address at the end of those posts (and I will continue to do that) but that is not a convenient way for bloggers to comment.


So I wrote this post to see what would happen - and the comment space is back, not the same, but back !


Now if it would only work on the post I wrote today (with pictures etc.) It does not work 'backwards' in fixing the problem, no Comments can be written on the 2 previous posts. (the one's I messed with).

The posts prior to these have comments and at the bottom of the comments new comments can be made so WHEW at least that is now working again. Scary stuff
