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!
