For anyone having trouble...  
Flexible Squares is an LJ S2 style that looks nice and clean and preserves subject lines, alphabetical text icon list, linking to a comment starting at that comment, no problem posting comments, etc, etc. As in, I'm vaguely aware they changed something from my friendslist but you can't tell it from my own experience, as I've always had my LJ set up to use my own format everywhere (way too many people set up their LJ design to look shiny and be unreadable.)

Here, have a kitty.

Hmm. Let's see if this works.

YAY, I COULD COMMENT.

Yay!

On your lj, anyway. Other ones still come up the same way with the greyed out comment submit button.

This is RIDICULOUS.

Do you have your style set to flexible squares, and your LJ set to use your custom comment page? That way you can override everything and use the working one.
Krisquiet000001 on December 21st, 2011 07:41 pm (UTC)
I think so. Custom comment is on the display tab of 'manage account' right? Or is there another one somewhere else?

You have both "View all journals and communities in my own style " and "View comment pages from my Friends page in my own style" checked?
Krisquiet000001 on December 21st, 2011 07:46 pm (UTC)
Nope - one of them isn't an option if you don't have a paid account. I kind of don't want to pay them just to fix something that they broke.
Krisquiet000001 on December 21st, 2011 07:47 pm (UTC)
Specifically, it's this one: "View all journals and communities in my own style" that isn't available without upgrading.
Lauratavella on December 21st, 2011 07:49 pm (UTC)
Huh. "View comment pages from my Friends page in my own style" should still be showing you comments in Flexible Squares, though. I use Firefox, and it's working for me in that styel.

your journal works, obviously, but if I go to someone using something different, it just defaults to the new standard.

I've been "rocking" Flexible Squares for a long time. I hadn't even heard of this new rendering problem!
Lauratavella on December 21st, 2011 07:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I've been all "wut? parent is gone? but it's right there! links are starting me at the comment, what do you mean landing you in the middle? Subject lines are right there!"

Test test... yay. :)
