I have a blog on (new) Blogger, and somehow I have managed to remove the envelope icon for "comments" (which may explain why I never have any comments on my blog). Help! How did I do this, and how do I get it back? (link to blog, details inside)

So, how did I delete the envelope icon? I did recently add the "feedflare" link to my feed, which puts an ad under the first post, but *none* of the posts have a comment icon, so I am not sure if that is related. I don't know what to look for in my html code--all the comment sections seem to be there, but obviously something's missing!

My blog is here. Obviously, it's a self-link, so if you don't want to click on it, but there's any advice or questions you have for me to figure this out, please Mefi mail me!
Maybe you have done this, or have something I can try without having to revert to the classic (sucky) template, or showing my html to everyone in the world. Thanks in advance, hive mind!

The icon you are referring to is the "Email this post" link which should (normally) display as an envelope. Right now the link is still there but the icon is missing because your CSS rules which control the display of the icon are missing this specific rule. It looks like you're not the first for that to happen. See this discussion thread.

The solution to this template corruption seems to be resetting your widgets. For instructions on doing that see this tutorial.

Hope that helps

I should also mention that an alternative solution is adding the following code to your template's CSS file (the stylesheet):

.email-post-icon {
background: url(http://www.blogger.com/img/icon18_email.gif)
no-repeat left center;
padding-right: 15px;

Thank you! That's done it, and apparently it wasn't something I did, so now I even feel good about it!
