Blogger Comment Problems

Dear fellow bloggers,

I have been trying to comment on some of your blogs and am not able to.

For awhile I was having a similar problem on my own Victorian Scribbles blog: I couldn't reply. I fixed the reply problem with advice I received: I cleared my cache.

I also changed my comment settings from "embedded" to full page. I think some of the sites I am visiting have comments "embedded".

Whatever is the problem, I really miss commenting on your posts. I can comment on some, but not others. Are you having fewer comments to your posts? You might want to check out whether your comments section is "embedded."

I know it's Blogger related, because I can comment on all Word Press blogs, and only some Blogger blogs.

I have pop-up, which works similar to full page. I hope you are able to comment on mine, because I am not fond of full page, which takes you away from the blog post.

I checked comment settings on all 3 of my blogs and they're all Embedded, always have been. I did notice fewer choices on the "who can comment" part --open ID is no longer supported. Could that be the problem?

Something happened awhile back and messed with some of us.

Elizabeth, I didn't realize that. I"ll check out my setting. My Fourth Wish blog has pop up. I'll try that.

Actually, George I don't know if the ones I can't contact have "open ID". They don't when they comment here, and I don't. Hmm.

Anvilcloud, do you know what happened? And did it normalize again?

Anvilcloud said...

No, I have no idea what is going on. I just keep plodding. :)

Ugh! Blogger problems stink. I will have to look into this on my blog- though you have commented- so hopefully all is okay. :) In the past when I have had trouble commenting I usually hit preview and then publish the comment from there. Not sure if that might help you.

I often leave a comment on a blog and then find that I have a "unable to deliver" note on my email, but obviously it was delivered as the comment eventually shows up on the blog. Very strange.

I have had all kinds of problems leaving comments. i have found that if I open blogs in Firefox instead of Safari, I have no problems at all. You might try using a different browser for your blog reading. Good luck.

Thanks all for the good advice. I'll check out some of the suggestions.

I did *just* get your comment, albeit as a reply to one of my replies. Thank you for persisting! As a bit of help that is just for blogger, try the link to Lady Gadget.

She helped me in the past (no charge!) when managing comments on my blog went haywire.

Thanks so much for this advice, Mirka! I've been wasting so much time trying to fix this problem.
