Security Reminder

Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

@MissyJingles You’ve gotten alerts about comments on a site that only exists in your Local app?

If you start your site and go to Tools > Mailhog > Open Mailhog do you see anything in there?

I’m not using mailhog.

I have narrowed down my problem. I can see the comments when I log on to my live site - via the comment alert email and approve comments there. However they are not showing up from my local environment and if I make any changes and upload any website changes from the local environment, the comment approved from the live side get deleted.

How do I get the comments to show up on the local environment? and/or get the comments approved on the live site to stay?
