Heads Up Bloggers

Blogger is at it again, several people let me know my comments had changed to embeded and they could not comment, also my word verifcation was turned on.
If you are embedded on comments bloggers can not comment. Blogger auto changed me from pop up to embedded and back to word verification. changes I did not make, I changed it back.
CHECK YOUR SETTINGS to see if they have changed.and SMILE while you do it
OOPS forgot, blogger has flipped some people back to email not showing, check that too.

Good ole' Blogger. Don'tcha just love 'em? I think what they started turned into something much much bigger than they ever anticipated. And they are free. That's another problem.

Crazy Blogger..... Why do they do that????? I still wonder why they 'promote' the embedded form... That's their default--so about half or more of my followers still have embedded... Seems like Blogger doesn't 'like' the pop up or full page ones...

Thanks for the heads-up.
Hugs,
Betsy

Interesting, it hadn't changed any of my settings, but thanks for the info! And it gives me a chance to get in here to comment, which I rarely do since I'm rarely signed into my Blogger Google account!

Lynne said...

Thanks for the infro. My settings seem to be ok.

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't think I've been affected by this.

Thanks and I will check - but what does embedded on comments mean?

Angela said...

I will look! Thanks for the heads up! Maybe that is why I'm not getting many comments lately at all.

Have a Great Day!

I have pop up comments on both blogs and so far no problems.

I have more trouble with the embedded comments, I do wish everyone would change to full page or pop up. Word verification is the other thing that I wish everyone would get rid of, it really slows things down.

Thanks for the info, I'll go check. My hubby had a problem signing out of one blog and going to another of his. He got stuck in one blog and just couldn't sign out. After a few days and reading heaps of tips on blogger help he finally got it to work again. Many others had the same problem.

I have my comments on embedded by choice, as far as I know that has not stopped anyone from commenting. One just has to have "post pages" enabled as well (under Archiving).

I've been out of commission so hadn't noticed accept for one blog the other day- doing just what you described. I wouldn't know. I was sure I would be up and running but fell behind. It can be so darn frustrating!
