As detailed in an earlier blog post: Commenting capability has been overhauled; comments have been upgraded for the blog and re-enabled for all three books.
As mentioned in the FAQ:
Supported authentication methods include OpenID, LiveJournal, Google, Yahoo! and Wordpress.com. At this point anonymous commenting capability is disabled, though it may be re-enabled at a future date.
Pretty much everything else that needs doing is gonna be work, and at this point all work is focused on DCR.5. And, yanno. Paying work.
Props to Eric for updating the MT install and pointing me in the right direction re: fixes and debug.
Process Tags stopped working, and the "replacement" method, mteval, doesn't even pretend to work in the context that Process Tags used to.* Fortunately the metadata audit got rid of the one regular instance of an MT tag in post data, and the book indexes (ex: dcr) - the only place that in-post tags were used otherwise - have been hacked back into shape with minimal effort. I'll need to do some template fiddling to get DCR.5 to list in the index As Intended, but that's relatively minor - and work that'll be done in a week or three, when DCR.5 is ready for launch.
20120421, 15:01 : Corrected a minor display glitch in entries with comments turned off. It kinda helps to have the div for the comments container inside the mt:if.
20120422, 15:54 : Sucked it up and added tooltips to all graphical links. This includes the left-hand menu bar, the next/archive links on comic pages, comic navigation, and the images in the book indexes. This completes the to-do list laid out in the previous blog entry.
20120515, 19:39 : Updated chapter graphics for the DCR index. Prior to today, 1-3 used photos, now they use the actual covers like 4 and 5. The header graphic will be changed to the book cover once a book cover has been generated.
20120723, 04:12 : All comic pages have been tagged. There are some serious formatting issues with the search template and search URLs, however - so I slapped an <mt:Ignore> container around the tag tags. The major groundwork is in place - I'll fiddle with formatting and search when it comes time for the next revision of the website. :)
* Using it in a Utility blog entry to pull the last entry date and category page count from a category in the DCR blog. mteval could quite possibly work internal to the blog calling it but that's not a functionality that current ATC information design can really capitalize on. The work-around is a bit less elegant under the hood but will look visually identical to the previous processtags.pl functionality.
