Commenting on Blogger.....

Am I the only one who is having problems posting comments on Blogger blogs? For the past few days, every time I try to leave a comment I have to log in to Blogger, then it redirects me to do word verification. After word verification I am again bumped back to logging in -- and it all starts over again! Maddening!

Anyone else having trouble?

when you log in, uncheck the 'stay signed in' button. this seems to be working for the majority.

Sarah said...

That was happening to me a week or so ago... I unchecked the "stay logged in" box, and that did the trick, although I don't know if it was a coincidence or not!

Christie, Describe Happy said...

Yes, maddening. Spunky Junky had a solution I reposted about here: http://describehappy.blogspot.com/2011/06/are-you-still-having-problems.html

Basically, you uncheck the "keep me signed in" box when you are directed to sign in. Hope it works for you too!

Tammy said...

Yes, same here. The blogs that have the pop up comment window don't have this problem.

Sarah said...

I'll have to check on that stay signed in box, the only other way that I saw to fix it was reducing the security settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

Yes, as a matter of fact I wanted to comment on your pencil post from last week and couldn't. I was going to say I bet you drew out the lines to make the huge paper, didn't you? You dork!

Bree said...

Yes. and you know how much we love you because of how much effort we're going through to tell you that yes, we're having trouble too ;)

Kelly O. said...

yes...total pain!

Caroline @ Artfully Caroline said...

So far no troubles for me ... maybe because I use a Mac?

Captain Sharmie said...

me too. i've started commenting with livejournal. eep!

Karen said...

Same here and I am not able to press the follow button up top....this has only been a problem on my pc and not my IPad......odd

Care said...

YAAAAAAAAY!! Thanks so much for the help, everyone!! :oD I am back to commenting! Woo!

And I've switched to the pop up comment box to accomodate anyone who hasn't figured out the tricky trick. :o)

(Now I am not so sad that I've had so few comments on my pencil tutorial -- hopefully it's just Blogger being fussy!)

Yep same here. I recently upgraded to Internet Explorer9. That's when it started for me. I removed the upgrade but i still couldn't fix it. Caused me all kinds of problems. (Grrr...) I tried the uncheck the box idea about a week ago and so far it has worked for me.

randi said...

some blogger blogs are so frustrating to comment on. i am going to read through the comments here to see if there are any ideas to change that.

Jen said...

Yep! That's why I've been so quiet lately :) Totally frustrating to say the least. Blogger better get their act together quick before everyone jumps ship.

YOu are not the only one!

I had the same problem so downloaded Opera to use instead of internet explorer on the advice of a friend and now blogger is working perfectly. Opera is a free download if anyone wants to give it a go. I was also having other problems when on the internet but they don't seem to be coming up using Opera. Very happy with it so far.

JoChapeau said...

Yes, I had the same problem. But it seems like it's working now.

Pene said...

It's been a bl**dy nightmare for the last couple of weeks, only the inginuity of users seems to be helping us cope. Blogger itself seems to be doing bugger all to sort the problems!! Sorry for bad language but seriously peed off with it now

I has that trouble during SMS giveaway day. Talk about frustrated!

Megan said...

I also have been having trouble leaving comments. I followed the advice from previous comments here and unchecked the stay signed in box and now I'm able to leave comments. Thanks everyone!

DJ Rose said...

I've had the same trouble (and that's the reason I didn't comment on the pencil.) I switched my comments to the pop up as well. I'm going to now try to uncheck the box and see if it works on another blog. :) Thanks for posting. Hopefully I can find a solution.

Samina said...

YES! It's been driving me nuts! Thanks to the other commenters for the work-around.

Anna said...

yeah, there's something really weird going on. I only had problems for one day. I actually just switched my comments box to the pop up window, too.

Creative Mom said...

I am on a mac and off and on I get directed to log in again any time I try to leave a comment in a popup window. I've found if I shut the popup window and click the post a comment button again it doesn't happen the second time. It avoids having to log in again and I am always logged in so I don't have to every time I get on to look at blogs.

I've been having problems for weeks. I finally downloaded google chrome and shortcuted it to my desktop. Now I use that to log on for my blogger reader and commenting on blogs. I use my regular internet explorer button for everything else because it seems to be more user-friendly for favorites and remembering passwords.

Cindy said...

yes, same thing here...

Astonishing said...

yes i have been having problems and was given up until i read this post, thanks, will try with this post

kendascrafts said...

yes, I've been haveing that problem as well. What works for me is to delete my cookies and browser history than reopen internet explorer. This seems to be only a band-aid fix as I've had to do this a few times over the past couple weeks. Hope this helps!

Sherry from Alabama said...

I'm not having trouble posting comments but I am having trouble with the SEARCH function on my blog. It just isn't working.

Laura Emmons said...

It seems to be working today but I went to the forum and it's a big problem. Hopefully they have worked it out.
