Last week I discovered that I can no longer leave comments on some Blogspot blogs. Whenever I click on the comments link, the whole page freezes so I cannot even read any existing comments. The odd thing is that it only happens on some Blogspot blogs I read regularly...but not all.
Yesterday I did quite a bit of clicking around to see exactly which blogs and posts I could comment on and which ones I couldn't. Apologies to anyone who has a stats counter and probably thought they had a cyberstalker on their hands!
I can comment on my own blog ok, but now I'm wondering if others are having the same problem? After doing a bit of Googling, I think the issue may be a bug in Blogger's new threaded comment system. Apparently there is a compatibility issue with Internet Explorer. If you use Internet Explorer (which I do), you may not be able to comment on blogs which have threaded comments.
I expect that Blogger will sort this out in time, but for now I want to suggest a temporary fix. Change from threaded comments back to pop-up or full-page comments. Just for a while. That's what is being suggested on the net anyway. I know it might be easier to suggest blog readers use a different browser, but I'm having trouble with Firefox as well at the moment for different reasons and my download is quite slow.
So...can you comment here? Leave a test comment if you like.
If not, you're welcome to email me at seddyed at hotmail dot com
Threaded comments do sound cool though...eventually.
