News from blogger...

Here are some things that worked for a couple of people



0) Make sure you are running the latest version of your browser, if not, upgraded it.


1) Make sure you REALLY have cleared both your COOKIES and CACHE


2) Once Cleared shut down the browser


3) Then Open it again and CHeck that the Cookies and Cache are indeed Empty. This is very important. The problem seems to be with corrupt cookies and cache files


4) If that is OK try going to www.blogger.com . Don't login yet, press CTRL-F5 and then try logging in again


5) If that still does not work try logging into Gmail first and then go to www.blogger.com and try again


6) If that does not work try going to this address http://www2.blogger.com/home


7) If that does not work try going to draft.blogger.com


8) If all those fail, try installing another browser to see if that works eg Firefox, Chrome, Opera etc
Well, girls, I don't know about you...
but this is beyond me...
too complicated for the average blogger...
so, this is what I have found that has worked for me...
any blog that has a pop-up window for comments lets me comment...
I use a pop-up window on mine and have been getting comments...
so...
here is how to change it in your settings...
go to your dashboard...
click settings...
now click comments...
now, find this...
and click pop-up window...
scroll to the bottom of the page and click SAVE SETTING...
easy peasy...
this should work...
let me know if it doesn't...
if you cannot leave a comment here...
send me a little note to my email and let me know...

Everything seems to be working now but Blogger is having issues and as of July 31, 2011 they will making everyone's last names public too. Maybe they are working on that.

I too can comment on blogs with pop-up comment forms. I unchecked the stay signed in box and now can comment on those embedded comment forms. This has to be done from a site with embedded comments. When you try to post the comment & it takes you to the google sign in page, sign in & uncheck the box. You will then be logged into your blog. This has to be done again when you log out of the window is closed. Hope this works for you.

Now if anyone can tell me how to get my followers and recent posts back I would be very appreciative.

I still can comment on all blogs, I said it before....blogger loves me ♥♥ hahaha. I (think) I have comments on the pop up window as well. AND I have Firefox, instead of IE. I never liked IE so changed to FF a long time ago, maye that helps too (if you really want to change ofcourse)

Hugs and SO hope Blogger is going to become normal once again......

Hugs from Marian

All is well here on my own wee blog, but I read the tips you share, because who can predict the future!

Jettie said...

I set my blog to pop up and see if it will help get more comments.

You are such a helpful blogger.
Thanks

Blogger is just a mess ... I think they enjoy making it a mess for everyone.

Have a beautiful holiday weekend.

Thanks for the tips, Tete! It is hard for us non-techy types to try and figure this all out, I must say, but apparently people have had some trouble leaving me comments, so I'd better work on it! I've changed to the pop-up screen as you suggested and will get clearing the other stuff.

I much appreciate the help, and do hope you're having a lovely weekend...:)
