* What's Going On With Blogger? *

Ever since Blogger announced its New and Improved commenting thingy....who can leave comments?? I  haven't been able to for about a day and a half.

Anyone else out there? AND if you can't answer in the comment section, because it won't let you comment....Send me an e-mail if you'd like!

  1. Having the same issues...can't even get into MY own comments. Oddly enough, it is not all blogs though...I can access some...but not Ames or Lisa and others!!! If you read this, I guess I got into yours!

  2. I tried to respond to comments on my blog and at first Blogger wouldn't let me. It seems to be working now, though.

  4. I haven't had any problems at all, and only noticed the new commenting thing when I went to reply to someone's comment on my post! I think my utter cluelessness has protected me.

  5. I haven't even been able to open up some blogs. It goes to the blog and then it disappears from the screen. Or I write the comment and that disappears!

  6. I have noticed the new comment "thingee" on some blogs. I really like it. It doesn't seem to be on mine of course.

  7. I haven't noticed anything out of the usual as yet.

  8. *Well, that comment didn't turn out right! Out of the 'ordinary' is what I meant to write. I think I already need a nap!

  9. Everything is working fine for me. Sorry you are having issues.

  10. Intermittent problems, including on my own blog. One was solved by going directly to the blog instead of through the Blogger Dashboard update list. Good luck!

  11. So far so good with leaving comments, Becky.

    What I AM having trouble with is changes to Google. On my e-mail page, when I open one, I have a LOT of difficulty scrolling down in order to read the whole piece of mail.

    If anyone else is experiencing this same difficulty, could you let me know how to rectify it? Thanks. Susan

  12. I know I haven't been getting very many comments lately - I thought it had to do with the declining quality of my contemt. :)

    I guess we've all gotten what we paid for in Blogger.

  15. I can't leave comments when the comment box is embedded below the post. Yours is not like that (separate page), nor is mine (pop-up window). I had no problem at all leaving this comment. I Facebook messaged a friend whose blog I couldn't comment on because it was embedded below the post. She changed the comment format, and I was able to comment. So...people need to get away from the "embedded below post" kinds of comment pages.

  16. I have had this problem for months, with my own blog, sometimes others. A ? to Blogger Help suggested upgrading to Google Chrome. Not gonna do that. Haven't tried to leave comments. since. We'll see if I can add THIS comment! haha

  17. Hmmm, I haven't noticed anything different except that the Blogger profiles all have a new, cleaner look.

  18. I think I either figured it out or it fixed itself. LOL! First off let me say, I hate it when Blogger changes things around. You know, they are making improvements and all to make it easier for bloggers to use Blogger. I went to their new Design page and clicked on Tools. I changed my comments from Embedded to Open Page or Full. It's hard to explian without having it staring me in the face. Anyway try that and see if something happens for you.~Ames

  19. Right now I am okay - but I have friends like you who are struggling.

    I'm sorry - I have been there too. What I did was switch to fox fire as my Browser.

    Love, sandie

  20. So far I haven't had problems. But what happened to Denise Covey (L'Aussie) and some others I know sounds scary.

  21. Yup! I can comment on about 1/2 of the blogs I follow. It's random. And, I can't access blogs from my blogroll by the title of their latest post, I have to click on their blog names instead.

  22. Becky, I'm having the exact same problem. However, I did notice something consistently. In blogs with a pop up comment box or side comment box (like yours and mine) I can leave a comment. When I click on to comment on blogs where the comment section is embedded at the bottom of the blog, the screen is frozen. I can't scroll up or down or leave leave a comment. (just like what Patti said)
    I've tried clearing cache/cookies but nothing helps and unchecking "remember me" on the log in page, but nothing helps. Aaaaagh!

    Okay, it was worth a second scream of agony after the edit!

  24. i didnt even know that blogger wa making some changes. Suddenly, Im now able to respond to comments on my posts individually - where before i didnt know how to do it. I thought it was a minor miracle, kinda like a late xmas present or something? But reading your blog, i guess it wasnt. Whatever blogger has done, so far, its been good for me. ( now watch, something awful will happen...right ....NOW!)

  25. Thanks to all of you who were able to leave comments! Nothing has changed much. I can leave comments on some blogs, and not on others..and they all have the same comment style as mine. I found a blog with status updates and it's posted on the side bar, right after "Please No More Awards." It has some answers...but some I don't even understand!

  26. Well you know my story Becky. Now my Reply button isn't working. Looks like this annoyance is not over yet!

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
