• Blogger Commenting Issues

    Just a 'housekeeping' observation about Blogger - the Blog Platform that I use to house and write my blog ...

    Recently I received a private email from one of my long time blog friends, Michelle.  She writes at Boulderneigh Blog - and you should stop in for a visit - especially if you love sheep and dogs and cats and horses and gardening and photography and knitting and spinning.  Yes, it wore me out just to write all that ... she is a very busy lady.

    She was having a new problem commenting on my blog.  She had other blog readers/friends who also reported similar problems with Blogger and suggested a fix for that problem.  I took her advice and the problem on my blog disappeared - I think.  She, at least, can now comment.

    If you notice similar problems on your blog or other blogs ... on Blogger, here is the fix I made:

    Change comments from "Embedded" to "Pop Up Window" on your blog.

    Not to get too technical ... but I did notice a minor change on my end of the blogging experience as the blog author using "Pop Up Window."

    When comments were set to "Embedded," I could visit my blog without signing in, and respond to individual comments using a 'Reply' option button available after every individual comment.  Now that 'Reply' button is gone.  Now that I am set for "Pop Up Window," the only way I can reply to comments on my blog is to leave another new comment  (like I am an external reader) and prove to my blog that I am not a Robot.  But I can't reply individually any more.  Odd.

    Not a big deal.

    But it does seem like the Blogger Platform has experienced a series of problems in the last year.  It does make me nervous.  I would hate to start all over again on a new platform (with their unknown problems) and/or loose my history here.

    Anyway, let's hope that the Blogger problems are now under control.
