UNABLE TO COMMENT

For the past  4  or 5 days  (from about June 1st or before)  I have been trying to post comments  especially for ABC Wednesday and others. My comments appear in the box as I type but as soon as I hit  the post comment button the page flies away and I am back at Blogger Dashboard asking me to sign in.


So I apologize to all my friends whom I follow and who have commented on my blog.  I have replied to many of you  with the same result.


So please forgive me!


I had noticed others were having the same problem, and I was feeling happy it wasn't happening to me.  But now it is.  Is it spreading?


I will keep working on it, but in the mean time if you haven't heard from me, please understand why.  Comments are a blogger's life breath -- almost!

I had the same problem on snafu's blog - took me four tries! I guess it is all part of Google's continuing problems.

This one worked!

snafu said...

Certainly seems to be an ongoing problem

Jane and Chris said...

Chris,try this, it may help. When asked to sign in, DO NOT tick the "keep me signed in" box. This is how I am getting around the problem. Prior to trying that I commented as anonymous but this only works for those blogs which allow anonymous comments.

The hint which Jane and Chris posted came to me also through Kath at Hillside Cottage and I posted it on my blog. I'm glad someone knows these things.
I've had your comment box "freeze up" on me a few times--don't know of a fix for that problem.

People were having trouble with mine until I changed the settings to give me a pop-up comment window, rather than embedded below the post.

I think this is a Blooger proble and we should all be complaining - if we can get though!

Jane and Chris;and MM: I did see your solution MM and read Jane and Chris's likewise. I made the changes but it didn't work for me. I will try AJ's solution if I can find how to change the settings. I will try again. Thank you all for your suggestions and yes I do think we should be complaining to Blogger but haven't had the time at the computer to get past their FAQ and the like.

OH! Now the comment above did the same thing but when I got the dashboard page and the sign in box, I just clicked on the sign in box and it brought me right back here with my comment posted. Perhaps that is the secret. We shall see. The frustrating thing with computers is that so often if I have a problem the solution is something really simple and obvious and I think, 'DUH!'

I`m having problems comments on several blogs. I keep being told that my cookie browser is disabled. Time to get some help from a more IT minded person in my family!

AutumnLeaves said...

No worries, Chris. I just got an email from a friend telling me that she couldn't even see a place to comment on my blog! Others have been able to comment so I suspect it is a hit and miss thing that will eventually straighten itself out. Right now the word verification box is empty below this comment. It says "Visual verification" in the box but nothing else. Hoping it pops up when I skip entering it.

The software that runs this blog site seems to have developed a glitch since a recent cyber attack on the Google Empire. Software is all conditional and if a patch has been added to solve a problem, this can cause unexpected results unless tested exhaustively. Exhaustive testing is impossible in practice due to the huge complexity of modern software and the number of possible combinations of branches in the algorithm, so most companies use the user as an exhaustive test. So welcome to the world of software testing. Don’t expect to get paid. However, good developers provide some form of direct user feedback through error trapping, but BlogSpot does not seem to provide this.

You're certainly not alone, Chris. I've been having the same problem although it's totally random in which blogs it affects. Blogger is aware of the issue but seem unable to fix it.

Hugs. Hope you're fully fit now? x

Yahoo was having a load of problems.

Not to be outdone, Flickr had even more yesterday all day.

So...Patty always tells me to wait a day and it will go away and it always does.

Not sure you asked for this Zero link but that is it.

Had the same problem at Tahoe. Finally I took off the check that says stay signed in, and it worked after that. Go figure.

This becomes even more important as the animal gets older and more prone to the illnesses and aches that go along with age. If it doesn't, then your chameleon is most likely dehydrated. Despite all of the expenses, what you get back is far more rewarding than you can imagine.
