Earlier today I had a strange issue with my blog where comments weren’t coming through. It’s not like I get a lot of comments but I noticed something was off with the emails the blog sends when a comment gets posted. Basically the details of the comment was blank. See here for a typical email :
Author : (IP: , )
Whois : http://whois.arin.net/rest/ip/
Doing a bit more testing, I tried to post a comment myself, to see if it mattered if I was logged in or not. Sadly this didn’t make a difference. But I did notice that the URL that it was posting to was strange
After a bit of poking, and looking at the error log it was an issue with a corrupt table. The simple fix was that the wp_commentmeta had crashed, and you’ll need to run the repair procedure on the table. Maybe you’ve just had this issue and you are lost for answers on how to fix it. Hopefully you’ll find this helpful.
