Eureka! Commenting Fix

 

Feel free to skip over this if you aren’t having any trouble with commenting systems lately.

I’ve noticed many bloggers posting questions on websites asking for help for something that seems to be more and more common.  The Blogger Help Forum has an example:

Since I was experiencing the same thing on several blogs (being unable to leave a comment), I Googled the issue mercilessly until I found a solution that worked for me.

Please bear with me for my rather rudimentary tutorial:

While in your internet browser, click on Tools, then on Internet Options:

Then click on the Privacy tab at the top:

Click on Advanced:

Then check to see if your settings match below:

I had to ensure that the “Always allow session cookies” box was checked.  This will allow you to sign into Google (or whichever system you use) and stay signed in to leave comments.

This is the only thing that worked for me.  Super happy, because it was driving me nuts not being able to let you guys know how much I appreciated your posts!  Hope this can help someone else.

If you read all of this and you didn’t even have a commenting problem… you rock.  Here’s something just for you…

Is it bad that I nearly wet myself when this flashed across my screen?

(No haters -  I’m not making fun, I just love that they openly advertise like this :)

Aunt Crazy said...

UGH...didn't work for me :(

RaD said...

Thanks! I wasn't having any problems but a friend was so I'm going to e-mail her the link to this post.

Rebecca Jo said...

Its actually still not letting me comment by signing in ... but I've learned to click on the Name/URL link to post a comment ????

Stacie said...

I just did it, and it won't work for me, but Rebecca just gave me a new tool that might help me out. Thanks!!!!

Tiffany said...

Thanks! Now lets see if it works for me...

Tiffany said...

Woohoo!!!!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Huh! I hadn't heard this problem. Now, of course, I will! Props to you for being awesome and giving us all help!

Ruth said...

It didn't work for me but thanks for name/url tip......I'm still stuck in a login loop tho.....any more ideas?

Kelly said...

Finally something that might work!!!

I've not been able to comment and it been driving me crazy!

NaomiG said...

I haven't been commenting on your blog, because it wouldn't let me. SO annoying. I found it also works if you unclick the "keep me signed in" box when it takes you to sign in, so I'm gonna try that now, and hopefully I'll be able to comment here. :-)

Shana said...

Oh thank you so much Rachel. I was so irritated with blogger again. This is a help. Umm, can I say I laughed so hard at that advert too. I can relate sometimes to so totally not making fun lol.

Foursons said...

Girl- you are incredible. I wasn't having problems, but this post seems to me to have been a hassle to put together. Good job!

Beth Zimmerman said...

I laughed so hard that I cried (literally) a while ago and it occurred to me that I was VERY grateful that I went to the bathroom shortly before crossing that blog!

robin said...

Thx! I was having trouble posting here, actually. :)

Kat said...

Thank you! Totally glad to finally be able to post on some amazing blogs!!!

DR5WHO said...

Thanks. Days of fustration are now gone.

Mary said...

I also noticed, for me anyway, if the comment form is embedded instead of a pop up option or full page option is when I had the problems.

Meyer-Lavigne said...

You are my man. This problem has been a real pain for a long time. Thank you so much.

Green Door Girl said...

Let's see if this works :)

Green Door Girl said...

I think it did - wahoo!!!!! :)

Scrappy Teacher said...

Here is the test to see if it will work. Thank you for responding to my problem on my blog:)

Scrappy Teacher said...

SO EXCITING!Thank you Thank you!

Jackie said...

If this works, I will be so grateful! I've not been able to leave comments for about a week now. Thank you so much!

Scrappy Teacher said...

This worked for me and I really appreciate the great tutorial. I am super new to blogging and wish all my questions about how to do what came with directions like this. I even shared your site with another random blogger I saw that left an anonymous comment and complained about blogger giving her trouble. It also worked for her. Thank You!

Heather said...

I have been struggling with this issue for two days and was almost in tears. I found your tutorial and tried it, YAY, It worked!!!! Thansk so MUCH!!!

Diane Moody said...

Oh my gosh, you are INDEED a miracle worker! Blogger is horrible about making things so ridiculously difficult. I've been losing my mind over this - and just found your note on their help page. YESSSSSS!!!!! It worked!!!! Thank you SO MUCH!! You could teach them a thing or two . . .

Catherine A. Winn said...

I was having this problem big time since it started in May. Didn't like having to sign in all the time. I just followed you tutorial and actually went to a known blogger I have trouble with and IT WORKED! Thank you!

Cherie said...

Thanks so much for stopping by today and also thank you for the heads up on the tutorial. I have figured out that I have this problem on the blogs that dont have a pop up comment page or redirect comment page. I cant wait until I hit one to test it out since I have changed my settings per your tutorial. Thanks so much again!

Cherie said...

Yes, it does work and if it doesnt for others it is one last simple step that needs to be taken. They need to find the google friends connect page and log in there also. There are two different places to log in. One is with blogger and the other is with friends connect. Two different systems of leaving comments but somehow integrated. I dont assume to understand this but the last log in kept the cookies and allowed me to move on my way once again. Yahoo!

Mira said...

thank you so much! I've changed my cookies settings, I hope this will help. :)
