Comments on blogger


Google seem to have changed some things in blogger. It is especially difficult now to leave any comment on a blogpost when you keep the comments form at the same page as the post. Whatever I do it is not possible to get a  login authentication to leave a comment with your google account. I tried this at some other blogger blogs as well and have the same problem. So it is not any fault on my blog that's causing this. A workaround would be leaving a message with your e-mail URL to indentify yourself.

The solution I found so far is to change the comments form in the settings so that it is popping up in a separate window. It shows up with the comments form we used to have and it seems to be working fine now.

I will review any comments before posting when a comment is left on posts from 7 days or older.

Good morning Bas, I have noticed the same thing. What I ended up doing when trying to leave a comment and I was having a hard time was....I most of the time use Firefox as my browser but found if I used Chrome I had no issue leaving a comment. This also may explain why I have seen fewer comments on my blog posts? I have also made the change to my comment page and we will see how it works.
P.S. Why is it when something seems to be working so well someone has an idea to change it and it ends up going from good to very bad?

Hello Mike, I noticed the same thing as well. Just a few comments or nothing at all. Really don't know why someone is messing it up. Google is too large I guess. But as long as there is any workaround I don't care really. 73, Bas
