I’ve just discovered a terrible, horrible, annoying thing.
If you have a blogger blog, and if you use the embedded comment form, then I can’t comment on your blog.
I think I am leaving a comment on your blog, it looks like I am leaving a comment on your blog, but it never appears. It disappears into the bloggy universe never to be seen again!
I can happily leave comments on blogger blogs who have a separate comment page (either a full page or pop-up comment page). It’s just the comment forms that are embedded at the bottom of your post and include the drop down menus, those ones don’t work.
If you’ve ever left a comment on this blog and I have never returned the favour and come and commented on your blog, that is probably why. I’m not being rude and ignoring you, my comments just never make it. You may also be missing comments from others – it seems anyone using firefox is affected.
From the small amount of digging I’ve done, this is not a new problem, but I’ve not found any information from blogger or anyone else who can tell me why it happens or how to fix it. As far as I can tell the only thing you can do is to not have embedded comments – which is a bit of a poop because they are rather nice really.
Does anyone know why this happens? Or better yet how to fix it??
I’m feeling all sad that all these comments I’ve been leaving for months and months have never been read by the bloggers they were intended for!
Read the comments or scroll down to add your own:
I often get stuck on the scripts used or the captcha codes not displaying, with my comment getting lost in the ether when I have to hit the back button on blogs (not necessarily blogger, but blogger irks me)…
I had that problem on someone’s blog too. Can’t remember whose though.
Oh! I wonder if that’s happening to me as well?
I have no idea … bit of a mystery .
I use firefox too but haven’t noticed ? maybe because I am a blogspot blogger

Oh, nw I’m wondering if that’s been happening to me – if it has SORRY! :)

I use Firefox but I haven’t had this problem.

ON Many blogs and mine during giveaways I put comments in moderation in order to makes sure that comments are mad on others posts If u return at a later date you’ll discover your comment was left and now visiable on the blog.
thanks for stopping by and visiting.

Hello! I found your blog quite by accident! I live in FL in the U.S. and was looking at TTTS images out of curiosity. I have 6 year old twin girls born in 2003 that had TTTS (I also have a 10 yr old daughter) and came across your pics on another blog as a guest writer I believe. Anyway, I have this leave a comment it never shows up problem all the time and could NOT figure out why! Thanks for writing about this, I thought something was wrong with me! I use Firefox..so if I want to comment, maybe I’ll switch to IE. Anyhow, what month were your girls born? I’d love to chat.. it isn’t often you meet one who experienced it, ya know? Well, nice to virtually “meet” you, blessings!
didn’t know that. thanks
