I have logged out from my blog admin and tried to post a comment. After submitting it I saw a blank page!

The worst thing was that I have not found any solutions in google (and people say that google always knows the answer :)) – so I decided to upgrade K2 Theme… But there is now new release on their main page!

But wait! There is a solution! (or I would not write this post :)) After some googling (ok… please forget what I wrote about google before… :D) I have found K2 nightly build subpage… All you need to do to fix this issue is to upgrade K2 with nightly build. It can be downloaded from: http://getk2.com/nightly/.

I have decided to download last RC8 version (k2-1.0-RC8-revision-807-2009-07-13.zip). And now you can test if comments are working again :)
