Help: Advice Sought Re: Comments

I'm trying to catch up with my blog reads; and have tried to leave comments on a number of them, but for some reason the comments are not registering and are completely disappearing as if I had not commented/written anything.

Those blogs that request 'word verification' are working fine, the others are not. 

So if any of you have encountered this problem recently too, please can you advise me.  As I wish to rectify this as soon as possible.  I do not want my fellow bloggers think I am neglecting their blogs. If you can't help that's okay, just check out my Salty and Sweet Potato Muffins before you go.

  1. This happens to me, too. On one blog I registered with my twitter address and that seemed to help.

  2. Yeah, that's happened to me too a few times too. I don't know how to rectify it, other than logging a bug ticket with Blogger. Hopefully, the problem will go away! :D

  3. I was having that trouble last week, but when I went back to try again my comments were actually there. Maybe your comments have actually appeared?

  4. Oh dear, it is so frustrating when something like this happens. I am sorry I can't be of any help. I hope you get it sorted soon.

  5. I know there has been a lot of problems with blogger comments recently. Something to do with having a pop up window I think - works better with one than without. But I'm not entirely sure. there seem to be regular conversations going on about it on UKFBA

  6. Hi Shaheen. I wish I could help you. I noticed there is a new "redirect" aspect popping up when I comment. I've had to wait longer than usual for a comment to appear. I hope this is just a minor glitch for you.

  7. Shaheen, you are not alone. Lots of people have experienced this recently. It MAY possibly be connectied to the "Keep me signed-in" box which is offered when you sign-in to Blogger. Try signing-out altogether and signing-in again without that box checked, and see what happens. It's worth a go!

  11. Those muffins look amazing!

    I greatly dislike web-based errors like the commenting problem you're encountering :( Is it just blogger blogs, or all sorts? I'm not sure what to suggest, other than that it could be the blogging platform rather than you if it's across one particular type of blog (blogger, for instance)?

  12. I had this problem and I found that by unticking the 'keep me signed in' box on the blog sign in page rectified it for some reason, although on my computer it does keep me signed in anyway. I am sure there is a technical reason but it is beyond me!!! xxx

  13. THENAK YOU TO ALL FOR YOUR ADVICE - BUT i AM STILL SEEKING HELP/ADVICE, AS I HAVE TRIED ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS BELOW AND AM STILL ENCOUNTERING PROBLEMS ON BLOGGER BLOGS, INC. OTHER OTHERS, SUCH AS WORDPRESS.

    Thanks Andrea,
    I don't have twitter to try this, but thanks ; and I am glad it has worked for you.


    Thanks Rose.

  14. Thanks Choclette.
    I went by UKFBA, but could not find any thing that would further assist me, but I will keep coming by to check out and see if anyone has cracked it. If you read it before me, please do let me know. Thanks.


    Thanks all the same GiGi.
    I have noticed the new "redirect" aspect popping up when I comment. I've had to wait longer than usual for a comment to appear, but only one the word verification ones. Like you I hope this is just a minor glitch and resolves itself in the next few days.


    Thanks Mark.
    In a way, it was good to hear that this is happenening to other fellow bloggers, as having been away from blogger the past week, I got a tad worried. I tried the method you advised, but thats not the issue at all. By the way, yor blog is one I am have problems commenting one. I think I have left 5 comemnts now and not one has appeared.


    Thanks Verónica.
    You don't have "word verification", so your blog is another one I have had problems commenting on this week.

  15. Thanks Torwen.
    Your comment has appeared. I have to say, I haven't had anyone mention that they have been having probs commenting on my blog, but then how can they when their comments are not appearing I guess - Thanks for bringing it to my attention.


    Thanks Kari.
    Its all sorts of different blogs sadly.


    Thanks Fran.
    I tried this again this morning and still nothing. I think its a dif. issue this time for me. I came by to leave a comment on your blog this mornign too and i could not.

  16. Hi Shaheen, I had exactly this problem. I also comment on Marks blog and had the problem with his amongst others. I resolved the problem (after much googling) by enabling 3rd party cookies on my computer. I have admit being fairly IT illiterate so I don't know if 3rd party cookies are bad but it did resolve the problem, and I haven't noticed anything bad happening this end...yet.

  17. I had the same problems a good while back. Also on your blog.
    Don't know how I found out though, but you need to sign out, empty cookies (???) Switch off puter, switch on again, sign in everytime you go to blogger. Works for me still.

  18. I have found that i have to sign in with blogger every time, by clicking the link at the top right of the page. Even then, it didn't work just now on your blog! I signed out and then signed in again. This will be the fourth attempt. I think Blogger has a big problem.

  20. I'm sorry about what's happening, Shaheen. Your second comment appeared on my blog, but not the long one that you said you left. I suppose Blogger just goes bonkers sometimes. Have you tried contacting the Blogger support team? They usually respond to inquiries, I think.

  21. That's weird...Hasn't happened to me yet.

  22. CHECK OUT THE COMMENT LEFT BY LIZ.
    FOR NOW IT SEEMS TO HAVE DONE THE TRICK, BUT I AM GOING TO MONITOR IT OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. BUT I AM CONCERNED WITH TORWENS, PATRICIA'S COMMENT - AS I WAS UNAWARE THE COMMENTS LEFT ARE NOT REGISTERING ON MY BLOG EITHER.


    Thank you so much Liz.
    Its appears to have worked.
    But I am going to monitor it.



    Hi Patricia (La Chatte Gitane).
    I'm sorry to learn that you have had difficulty posting on my blog too. I am hoping it is resolved now, but you never know.



    Thanks Jane Rowena.
    I'm sorry to read that you had to attempt four, sorry five times before leaving this comment on my blog. I hope the next time you leave a comment, you don't hae the same issue as I would like to think it has been resolved, but you never know....



    Thanks Sumaiyyah.
    Yes, I was having big problems with your blog, and was quite disappointed as I left a lovely long message for you, but with the second comment appearing, I think it is working now since I followed LIZ's advice above.
    If i have the problem occur again, yes I will register it with blogger.


    Count yourself lucky Lela.
    You don't want it happening to your blog.
    It is so frustrating.

  23. Hi again, Shaheen! (Am I like the only person who actually subscribes to comments? Is that weird? Because I like reading the feedback you give to my comments. Oh well) That's okay, I appreciate your comments, long and short!

    Just thought that I'd share with you, since I always like to leave rather long comments, that whenever I've finished typing out comments, what I do is to press Ctrl+A and copy what I've commented before pressing submit. Just in case my internet gets disconnected (which happens a lot!), I'd just have to paste what I've typed out before and try again. I suppose it sounds a little obsessive, but I hate my efforts on typing comments go to waste, because I like to think of creative ways of commenting! It find it fun :P

    Anyhow, I'm glad the issue is solved for now. Don't let it let you down! You can see how much people love you and your blog from all the comments popping up here!

  24. Thanks Sumaiyyah - for your long, lovely and most thoughtful comment. Nah, I don't think your the only person who subscribes to comments - but you may be in a minority of responding to them :) and that is not a bad thing.

    I appreciated you advice about cutting and copying long comments. I have done that in the past, but sometimes you just want to believe that blogger works and with so many blog reads its not always possible - I understand where you are coming from with potential internet disconnection as it does happen to me now and again.

    Once again, thank you so much for your absolutely lovely comment. I especilly like the last paragraph - makes me feel big headed!

  25. Oh and Shaheen! I almost forgot, I wanted to tell you this but I forgot. I'm reading this blog post on commenting. It's truly interesting, just in case you haven't read it: http://diannej.com/blog/2010/02/whats-the-value-of-looks-delicious/

    And don't worry, you wouldn't get big-headed, you're too nice for that!

  26. Thanks Sumaiyyah - I'm off to check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  27. how annoying - I have been seeing comments from you so hope my blog isn't one of these - but I do get comments from people saying their comments was eaten by blogger - so frustrating
