Q: The videos in the Gallery are not playing, there is just a black window.  What is wrong?

Q: I’ve posted a comment and it hasn’t appeared.  What’s happened to it?

A: Assuming that everything worked correctly then it is probably waiting to be moderated.  When a comment is posted it is put in a queue for a site admin to approve it.  It may take a few hours for this to happen.  Once you have had one comment accepted future comments should be automatically approved, without admin intervention.  If the comments contains certain types of content it may require admin approval.  If you have a query about a comment you’ve posted please contact me via the Contact form.
