Convinced that maybe Access just plain isn’t going to support 18 digit blogid’s, I did try a couple of new commenting systems with the new blogger version while I ate my lunch. CGIcomments completely didn’t work. Again, probably it’s handling the blog_id as a number and choking on 18 digits. xcomments worked, sort of. I can read and write comments, but I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why the comment count doesn’t work. Since the creators of xcomments simply left the zip file and no documentation, it’s a bit hard to really get through why that might be. I’m trying now to find someone, anyone, who is using xcomments successfully and has a comment counter. I haven’t found one yet! 🙂

By the way, the comment count is not related to the digits problem, as it doesn’t work on new blogs or old blogs with the shorter BlogItemNumber. There’s something else that I’m missing.
