Maris Panzani, an Admissions officer at the GC wrote "for some reason our posts won't allow comments any longer. For example"

Upon further investigation, the comments field is visible, but after I click submit I'm directed to a blank screen. If I then navigate to the page, the comments don't show. I tried this logged in as myself and under an alias, on both Chrome and Firefox.

There are some comments in the Trash visible in the Dashboard, but not anything recent.

The Oceanmist theme was building its comment form in such a way that the 'action' parameter for the comment form read http://.. rather than https://. Since we force * traffic over HTTPS, this request was failing. I'm unsure why this is happening just now, but there are a number of other issues being reported today that may indicate some server-level change (#7985, #7995).

For the time being, I've put a hotfix in place that forces URLs like this to be HTTPS, which appears to fix the immediate problem. Can you please verify?
