Blogger Issues Unresolved
We’ve been busy this week with hiking and regular chores around the house. In the few spare minutes I’ve had, I’ve tried to figure out the problem with making comments. Rick over at Rick and Paulette’s RV Travels had a couple of good suggestions, but those didn’t solve the problem. We all know Rick has the magic touch when it comes to computers, so I’m hoping he’s intrigued enough to come up with another idea.
His first suggestion was to change my browser setting to enable cookies. That was set to always accept cookies, but I clicked it “never” and then back to always, hoping that would jog something loose. No luck there.
With cookies in mind, I decided to remove all the cookies. Then I deleted all my history as well as my cache. None of that helped.
I also sent an email to Google outlining the problem, but as yet have not had a response from those folks.
His second suggestion was to click off the “remember me” box on the Blogger sign in page. I never have that box checked. I always want to sign in whenever entering my account. I don’t know why, I just do. Anyway, again, I checked the box, signed in, signed out, then unchecked the box. The next time I signed in, I was still unable to make comments.
I noticed one thing interesting. One day this week, I was able to make a comment on a blog. This particular blogger does not use “embedded” comments. That gave me the idea of changing my comment setting to something other than “embedded”. I was able to make a reply to a comment left on my blog, however, it didn’t help when it came to making comments on others’ blogs. Since nearly everybody uses “embedded” comments, I’m not able to make comments on most of the blogs I read.
So, the search for a solution continues.
That’s all I know. Thanks for tagging along.
