Like a few others, I'm having LJ issues - hopefully they're temporary glitches.
I couldn't see comments on several journals, including my own, I thought it might be a style issue as I could see comments on [livejournal.com profile] nwhyte's journal which disappeared when I checked "View in own style" (then Air). Changed my style to his Minimal Blue and my journal and feed now look different but when I click to read comments the pages are still in the old style and I still can't read comments on my own journal, but perhaps you can...

Can't find a setting option to apply style/theme to the individual entries.

In other news, Southampton trip was good, got home easily despite tube strike (direct bus from Waterloo to King's Cross), and can definitely manage a 2hr 20min train journey now.

This is a day off after 7 busy days in a row, I was hoping to spend more of it doing fun things not fettling LJ :-/ Thought the change of journal style would be a quick fix, but no.

Oh, and I've lost the hover/drop down menus in the top bar, and the option to set to friends-only. Hello, world!

EDIT: Top Tip: If you're desperate to read comments on an entry and can't see them, View Source and Find the word article, which has five uses on the main entry and then precedes each comment.

EDIT2: fixed it for myself, though possibly temporarily
First I went here http://www.livejournal.com/customize/ and chose the theme Minimal Blue.

Then I went here http://www.livejournal.com/customize/options.bml and set
Disable customised comment pages for your journal = No

Now when I go to a comment page and can't see comments and tick the box near the top "View in own style", I can see comments.

Still don't have security settings or hover menus.
There are 7 comments on this entry. (Reply.)

I had some couldn't-see-comments problems round Christmas, but they were resolved a day or so after I opened a support request...

Ah, but I see they have returned. Bum. I'd open a support request, I think.

"and can definitely manage a 2hr 20min train journey now. "

Excellent!

I know! Hello, Birmingham?

Agreed, excellent.

It would be wonderful if that meant we could see you at conventions again.

I will leave a comment with helpful advice for my friend who is having difficulty seeing comments.

From your description, LJ introduced at least one bug in their CSS. View source and changing styles are good workarounds.
