I'm really hoping that this isn't just my problem. I hope like crazy that one of you knows how to fix it.
Several of you - Shades of Blonde and Burgh Baby's Mom being the two I frequent most - have switched to a new format in Blogger. I like the look and feel of it. But I can't comment on their posts! It's driving me crazy!
Please tell me one of you has had the same problem? That you know how to fix or bypass it? When I try to comment, below the box for comments, and above the post button, there's a drop down menu which says, "Select profile". When I drop it down, it gives me the options of Google account, Live journal, Aim, Open ID, Name/URL, Anonymous and a few others. I've tried them ALL. Can't leave a comment to save my life.
I've left messages with Blogger's help line. What a joke. There's no help there. So I'm begging you, my bloggy friends, the technically savvy of you, to PLEASE help me? Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
Until I write again ...
P.S. Thanks to Daryl, I've been able to leave a comment at Burgh's place via Internet Explorer (ordinarily I'm a Foxfire girl). Unfortunately, after leaving the comment it told me there was an error and locked up on me. I think the key is in my not staying logged on at Blogger, no matter what I do. As soon as I've posted or left the Dashboard, I'm logged off my blog. Grr.
Okay .. so I went to both their blogs and if I had wanted to leave a comment I could .. so now I ask .. are you logged in on Blogger? If so, try logging out, shut down the browser and maybe even shut down the computer and restart, if you use a Mac try using Foxfire not Safari .. if you use a PC try using Foxfire in place of IE .. if all that fails, I have no other ideas/suggestions or fixes
Not a "Blogger" blogger, but it seems you should be able to under your blogger id. I found the field on both sites....
Or you could apply for an open id like I use to comment on Blogger sites.
I'm no help. I'm using FF and I went and it was okay. Didn't leave a comment. How rude. I'm logged in to Reader.
It appears the above geniuses have taken care of you. I'll be moseying along.
I had the same problem for a while... also with only a few blogs. Then, one day blogger fixed it, I assume. It just started working. Yes, it's frustrating, but that's life in the internet world...
I was wondering where you were! I have my comments moderated and they don't show up until I approve them. That's what happens when you know psycho people who you're afraid will leave an inappropriate comment! Ha! Thanks for being my fellow bloggy friend!
Good luck. I've had a lot of issues with Blogger lately but I think it is all their problem. Hang in there.
I have had a few blogger issues myself recently. I am glad to hear I am not alone. Sorry you are having trouble though.
I tried out the new format a month ago and got several emails saying that people could not comment. So I went back to the original form.
I hope the problem is all solved by now. I must confess this has never happened to me and I have no idea why.
Blogger is busting my chops .. it says I have 42 comments waiting moderation but I dont have comment moderation turned on ... Laura also is having posting/commenting issues, Blogger insists she's anonymous.
I had the same trouble on a few blogs. To get around it, I had to do a control-click on something - maybe the "Publish Your Comment" button? This would then open ONLY the commenting/publishing area in a new window, where I could leave my comment.
For me, The blogs are read only until I am signed in. If I enter Blogspot through the create blog page I made I have free access. If I just go to a blog without signing-in I have no comment ability. I also made up my mind months ago that I am here to write my blog and the comments are secondary. I put a counter on my blog and am well into the 20,000 to 30,000 range of hits. Good luck.
This happens to me every once in a while. I usually get a software update not long after I have problems though. Blogger REALLY scared me today, I went to load up my site and it told me there was none.
aaaaagh. technology :-(
