Why is it that the moment when you realize that you have left your keys inside is just as the door clicks shut?
Fixing one bug to reveal another
I have spent the past couple of weeks trying to track down why my server was getting a bazillion hits from a few sites that had CommentLuv Premium installed and it turned out that those sites were not saving transients properly.
I came up with (I thought) was a solution.
It’s hard to know something is fixed if I cannot replicate it myself on my machines so the best I can do is suck it and see.
So, I sent it to one of them and let it run for a few days and it seemed to solve the problem.
I merged the code in to the new update which fixes a couple of other bugs and did a full release with loud announcement asking people to update to the latest version of CommentLuv Premium which, like the great users they are, did in their hundreds.
At this point the bug reared it’s ugly head.
This is the one and only time that I didn’t go through the laborious process of doing my test run on my local machines.
