Blogger comment issues

The comments function seems to be broken on blogger - at least for me and for several other friends.

I can not post comments to my own blog nor to many of yours - I'm reading, and e-mailing when possible. I've reported this to blogger, but... we'll see.

Blogger folks - if you're having similar problems PLEASE report it!

UPDATE: There's something on blogger about changing the commenting format and if you go to settings and save things as "embed" then it will work.

It didn't for me, even following directions.

Here's what DID work.

I went to settings, changed my comments preference to the "pop-up window" option, and now everything's hunky dory, except for the fact that I now have to use the pop-up window option. But I can live with that.

I had this same problem today with.... Judy? Uff, cannot remember... This is my 4th hour in front of the screen. I should stop!

Trying something new! I think it worked. YAY!!!

Núria said...

Jen, I just saw a post from Blogger... they are making some changes so that we can have our comments in the same page! That must be why! Go to your settings and say embeded comments, or go to blogger news :D

Hi Nuria - I did all that and it didn't fix it, lol.

What I DID do, that did fix it was go to the "pop-up" window option and then I was able to post comments again. Thanks for all of your help!

I'm glad it's working now for you. I'm going to check out what they are doing that's new.

Have a good Thursday.

I noticed the format for commenting had changed on a lot of blogger blogs...yet another reason I left blogger.

I'm glad blogger is aware of the problem. For the past month or so, I've been having a lot of trouble getting into comments that don't have the pop-up option. It times out most of the time. It seems to me that the multiple page loads are the problem. If we try to comment *without* the pop-up, the page has to load over and over again.

Now if they'd do something about the *first* page load.... :)

Thanks, everyone... Guess I'll stick to the pop-up window for now. ;-)

see, I always prefer the pop up window option, because it's easier to refer back to the post, so... hooray!
