I understand your frustration! Really I do! I don’t have any control over why some of you are able to comment just fine, and them some…who have been long time faithful commenters are all of a sudden caught up in a loop of “log-in-re-log-in-re-log-in!”
I haven’t changed anything for the comments at all. In fact, I made it easier with the previous giveaways that we’ve had ((And this was months ago, not just recently)) to allow anonymous comments!
So those of you stuck in the log-in black hole…..I went on a search and find mission last night thanks to our Quiltville Facebook Friends page!
And we were off and running trying to find out the nitty-gritty from those in the know….and those who seemed to be locked out on leaving comments at all! I mean, we are willing to try ANYTHING, aren’t we?
Mary was willing to try ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to give us the low down on what was going on from her end. So..it looks like it might not be a BLOGGER problem at all, but your own privacy settings!
Charity also figured out that if she signs in with her google account, she has to UNCHECK the box that says “Keep Me Signed In”. So give THAT a try if you are having issues!
Cathy thought it might be IE9 that was causing her problems. She went back to IE 8, and also unchecked the “keep signed in” box and it did finally let her comment. Which one of these steps did the trick for her? We’ll never know… we are just happy that it is now working for her!
Rhiannon also found out the same thing…..I don’t know what browser she is using, but when I thought it might be just a firefox issue, I got comments from several that say they use firefox with no problem!
As for me? I haven't had problems on anyone's blog at all. The first thing I do is get into my gmail. That logs me in to blogger, but I don't have that "keep me signed in" thing checked either...Yes, I am one of those who logs in each and every time with a user name and password. In another tab, I open up blogger, and it does fine for me...is it the order that I do things? I have no idea. My gmail and my blogger account are on the same ID so I was wondering if that has anything to do with it?
If all else fails, just use the anonymous log in, and remember to leave me your name and email address at the bottom of your comment so that I can get back to you!
