About three weeks ago Redleg Nation saw a bit of a change, moving hosting companies from WordPress dot com to another company. The site still runs and uses WordPress, but it’s not hosted with them. One of the changes that we made while doing the switch was set it up so users wouldn’t have their own accounts. There simply was no need for non-authors to have an account to comment on the site, and many users didn’t. But a lot of users did, apparently. And in the last few weeks I’ve gotten about an email a day asking about how someone can log in because they are no longer able to.

In order to comment you do not need to log in (and won’t be able to unless you are an author here at Redleg Nation). Simply fill out the form in the comments section with the required information (name, email address) and type your comment, then hit submit. It’s that simple. Hopefully that clears up things for a few of you who were having troubles.

    That’s usually a web browser thing, not a website thing.

    Something about the site does, however, recognize me, because when I give it my name and email, it pops up ol’ Warden Norton (there – see?) when I submit the comment. Not sure how that works without me having to log in, but…that said, I don’t really care. I like the site, the info, and all y’all to boot.

    Go Reds!

      As a Louisville grad who watched his team play ‘Cuse back in the Rony Seikaly days, I must say that’s not all bad. 🙂

      Otto Orange! Not a lot of Syracuse Orange fans who are also Reds fans in Central NY. I have been since 1975 when I was 8! Go Orange and Go Reds!

    Hi Doug. Congrats on taking over Redleg Nation. The site could definitely use some expert governance given the ineptitude of the last regime. But, pray tell, despite the embarrassments of your predecessor, I heard through a certain podcast that you are wrong in your assessments the majority of the time. You won’t dispense fake news will you?

    Milt Pappas – please come back!!

      • Spaceman Red

        You did a good job, Chad. No one here from the last regime I would not buy a beer and watch a game with them from the Scout Box.

    Lest I be taken seriously…and no one who knows me ever does, my last comment was
    farcical. I don’t want Milt Pappas to come back.

      Well, given that most people here probably do not know you, that comment was rather mean and unnecessary.

    How do I log on to “viewer mail” from the website?

    • Scott Anson Benhase

      Thanks. Chad was vague on that. So, I followed the link and it took me to the page for UVA athletics! Wahoo!

    Any way to get the time stamps back? That was a nice feature when looking through comments because if you came back later you had a better idea where you left off?

    • Doug Gray

      I will look into it, but I don’t think that’s something that is likely to come back with the new layout.

    I don’t know if it was the server switch or what, but the site runs much better now than it did. I had basically quit coming here because of all the issues I had with blogs moving around on the screen, clicking on one article and getting a different one, etc. So glad to see things are back to “normal”

    • Doug Gray

      That wasn’t the server switch, but it was a part of the design change.

    Time stamp IS important as previous commentator mentioned.

      • Seat101

        It is certainly missed

        By those of us who relied on it
