Help Me. Please.

Hi everyone. Stimey here. I am sorry to have to admit how dumb I am, but why is it that I cannot for the life of me comment on Blogger blogs that use the new commenting option?

Like this:


Please, please, please tell me what I'm doing wrong. I keep trying to leave comments and it just erases them over and over.

I feel like a moron.

Help?

Thanks to My Party of 6 for the image. I tried to comment about how adorable your daughter is. I really did.

  1. You know I've had more problems with the new "embedded" comment box... it SUCKS.

    just for the record... =)

  2. I'm not that familiar with it, but did you select your profile?

  3. I did. I've tried to use my Google ID, my name/URL, and Open ID. Every time I enter my info in the little boxes, write my comment, click publish, and then the whole thing disappears. I'm completely frustrated.

  4. Wow. I haven't come across this yet. But when I do, I know I'll have trouble with it too, so if you figure it out, post a tutorial... ;-)

  5. Eeek! I just changed to that option this morning! I'm going to switch it back. Can't trust this newfangled Blogger comment stuff. No wonder I'm not getting any comments today.

  6. I think it's Blogger, not you.

  7. I couldn't leave a comment at my friends blog, but I thought it was because I'm "anonymous". My friend ended up changing the option back to the old way. Good to know that I don't need to become a "blogger" just to make a comment. ;) (I did look at starting one a few days ago, but couldn't think of a good name...)

  8. The same thing happened to me this week and I gave up too. I wish I could say that's why I haven't gotten any comments today...but I don't use that option on my blog. :) Oh well.

  9. I just changed to this, so it's kind of in my best interests to get this sorted.

    Maybe if you're already signed in to your google account before you go to make a comment?

    Try clicking preview, which makes you sign in, then go back to publish?

    Smack blogger for being an idiot?

  10. Missy, I know. I tried to comment at your place too. I was already signed in to Blogger, and I did click preview because I thought that might work. And it didn't. And now I want to throw a rock at my computer.

  11. Hust leave yours alone, so we all don't feel incompetent. Thanks for taking one for the team.

  12. Apparently I can be incompetent all on my own because I can't type or spell.

  13. I doubt it's your fault, I have no idea what would be causing the problem. But I'm betting that you might regret it if you damage your computer in your frustration!!

  14. Check another web browser. Not all software works on all browsers.

    I don't know why, but it doesn't.

  15. Joeymom: You are so clever. That didn't even occur to me, but I regularly have to switch between Firefox and Safari for some things. I'll try this. Thank you!
