comment A nomenclature which it can be displayed in a MWE but nothing occurs when the full packages are included. Is there any conflict between packages?
Start with your full example, then remove the package calls, one by one, until the behaviour changes. At that point, you'll have an idea of which other package, if any is causing the problem, and will be able to make an MWE with just that package. That will make it much easier for us to help you.

@cfr Perhaps a treatise(!) on Clown Theory?

comment Turning a blog(with comments) into a beautiful texbook
Instead of railing at @cfr that we don't have an instant answer for a somewhat vague question, help us to help you. For instance, add a screenshot to your question, or tell us how you plan to capture the content, and in what format. Or tell us what you've tried so far.

comment gitinfo (xstring): tag info does not work because of “tag:” before version number
I'm working on gitinfo 2.0, which I hope will solve this problem (and a number of others).

comment gitinfo (xstring): tag info does not work because of “tag:” before version number
For those who are interested, I am currently working on gitinfo release 2.0, which will incorporate @cfr 's code. There will also be a new set of Release commands based on metadata from git-describe, and one or two other minor improvements. Email requests for '2.0-beta' will be promptly and happily replied to.

comment LaTeX Error: File `scrextend.sty' not found
scrextendis a standard component of Komascript. It looks like you may have an incomplete or corrupt installation.

Thanks for your support! I may well 'steal' this code sometime, though of course, fully attributed either as "cfr from TeX/.SE" or something better if you email me.

comment Replace the text 'Chapter' with custom text in Memoir
Sorry, I disagree that this is a duplicate. OP specifically requests a solution for memoir, while the cited question deals with article.

comment Drawbacks of the `H` specifier
@wasteofspace Even with brown, it's not a pangram. Either jump has to be in the present tense, or you need more than 1 dog.

comment Latex template for American Mathematical Monthly
@Mico Actually, I don't think it was Windows that added the extensions (it never has for me); the problem is, it conceals them.

@tango I appreciate your kindness in trying to upvote me all over the site, but that particular approach has been foreseen by the site designers, and your work has been undone. We're happy to help here, and all you really need to do, if you feel you've had useful help, is to upvote the answer and accept it by clicking on the tick.

No, just leave them as two separate files ion the same folder, then process the .tex file

comment Latex template for American Mathematical Monthly
Yes, I just downloaded the two files into the same folder, then compiled them with no problems.

FWIW, I have just downloaded the template .tex and the .sty, and (with no alterations) they compile without error (pdflatex, xelatex, and lualatex). Are you able to compile OK before putting your own content into the template? Answering this will help us see whether it's a problem with your content or with your \TeX installation.

comment Is there a script that reads a TeX file and replaces every instance of a \newcommand?
By the way, if you think from this that regex is for loonies, you're probably right.
