Are you having problems posting comments?

One or two people have mentioned problems they are experiencing in that they can post comments on some blogs but not on others.

I have had the same problem for the last couple of days.  You type a comment, try to post, it asks you for your ID...you click "google account"...you get sent to the google log in page and log in...you go back and try to post your comment and it just keeps sending you back to Google log in on a loop.   So frustrating!

I have spent hours trying to find a solution on Blogger Help.  I've cleared the cache (even though I don't really understand all that stuff), deleted cookies and browsing history, and followed various other instructions...but to no avail.


At last I spotted a comment from someone who suggested it may be an Internet Explorer problem, so I've changed over to Firefox browser...and guess what?  It works!


Maybe some of you are already aware of this, but in case you aren't I thought it would be useful to share this info.

  1. Yep, I've had the same problem ever since the big Blogger meltdown in May, Ayak. I can comment OK in Internet Explorer as long as I don't tick the "Keep me logged in" box in Blogger. however, it's a pain having to log in all the time, so I've downloaded Google Chrome and use that for Blogger.

  2. Perpetua...Ah..so google chrome also works? It's annoying that we have to keep searching for different ways to overcome these problems. If only Blogger would just sort it out!

  3. So pleased Firefox works for you.
    I 'm a bit reluctant to say everything is OK at present....
    Thats asking for trouble but I do have trouble commenting on some blogs.
    If I leave a long comment, I usually copy it first........ just in case!
    You have to outwit Blogger if you can!

  5. I am on Firefox now and I answered your postE on my blog and it worked...
    for a long time I couldn't post a comment on your blog using IE..then lately it is ok on yours...but not for me to answer posts on mine or a lot of other bloggers. Thanks for the heads up on using Firefox...

    Barbara from Turkish Muse contacted me a number of other bloggers a while back. She and her husband were off on a romantic visit to Paris to celebrate their anniversary. She asked if we could guest post on Turkish Muse while she was being swept off her feet. What a fantastic idea, I thought. So I’m stealing Barbara’s concept. Liam and I are off to London for two weeks at the end of August followed by a few days in Bordeaux to celebrate an old friend’s 50th. So my question is would you be willing to write something for Perking the Pansies while I’m away?

    Although my blog is mostly about my life in Turkey with Liam, I often stray onto other topics when the mood takes me. So I really don’t mind what you write about. It can be about your life as an expat, a social comment or hot topic, your favourite recipe, what you like or dislike about expat life, what you miss/don’t miss about your former life, your favourite photo, your best/worst holiday, where you’d like to visit, even your grandmother’s secrets if you’re in the mood to be racy. Write whatever takes your fancy. Itmight be a good excuse to write about something new away from your normal theme. I don’t even mind if it’s long or short. See how easy I am to please? Of course a link back to your own blog will be included.

    If you’d like to take part can I ask you to send me your piece (with photos if you want) to me by 1st August? Please say yes!

    Thank you in advance.

    Best wishes

    Jack
