When I upgraded to WordPress 1.5 a couple months ago, I broke my Permalink structure and didn’t realize it. That caused all the category links, comment links, archive links, etc to be broken! No wonder all the spamming stopped!

After fighting with it for a while, I realized that my structure was set to webmasterp.com/archives/blahblah. I kept getting 404 errors and couldn’t figure out why! Then I was looking through the latest visitors and saw someone linking to a picture at webmasterp.com/archives and it dawned on me. /archives existed! So I changed the structure to webmasterp.com/arch/blahblah and it works again! Yay!

Now to track down a good anti-spam plugin since I’m sure the spamming will begin momentarily..
