Anyone else having problems commenting on Blogger?

Yesterday blogger suddenly started refusing to let me leave comments on friends' blogs. Anyone else having problems? I am reading but at the moment can't leave any comments. Frustrating! If anyone has a solution please let me know!

  2. All well here. Have you tried using a different device to comment from. E.g phone or iPad? X

  3. There are particular blogs that I have real problems commenting on - something to do with which profile I use. I have to save my comment and have three or four goes at leaving it - very frustrating. The blogs in question somehow change my profile when I'm on them, so when I try and change it to the correct profile it all goes wrong. I hope you manage to sort it soon. CJ xx

  4. Had that problem with one blogger, but it cleared up.

  5. Major problems in the last week. First off attributed it to a recently installed Safari 12 update so wasted an entire afternoon rolling back the entire OS to a previous version.

    Problem cured for a couple of hours, then returned. Next bout of non-scientific analysis put the blame on Kasperky’s ‘browser extension’. Disabled that and things improved.

    Problem cured for a couple of hours . . . Etc., and have now concluded that the trouble is being caused by Google/Blogger themselves and that it is a corrupt cookie. Clearing cookies, rebooting browser and signing back in - so far - is working.

    You can see why I’m not an IT tech! :-)

    1. That sounds very like what I'm getting. Have had to sign in on M's compiter to leave this, on mine and on my phone I can't leave anything at all. It won't recognise my blogger account even though it says I'm logged in and just lists a generic google account! Grrrr :o(

  6. I have a blogger who comments on my blog who has the same problem. Signing into dashboard/design and going in and out of "comments, published and spam", for no known reason other than to allow refresh of same, allowed her to leave comments again. Not so scientific analysis as Jayne above, but it may help.

  8. Over the years once or twice I have had a couple of days when it has been difficult but by the time I have begun to really get in a state about it it has all come right. So give it a day or two I would say.

  9. Have you tried the cache and cookies?

  10. No problems this end. What I do have that is very annoying, is after I've typed a comment and press the publish button, the whole page jumps down and I get the blogger profile instead and have to type the comment again.

  11. I can only comment on yours using Google account, not my url or Wordpress. S x

  12. No not that problem but on onday my post would not go onto the READING list no matter what I tried. Seemed to correct itself the next day.

  13. Phew! I think clearing the cookies and web browsing history worked! Thanks all for your suggestions. Now off to see whether I can comment on your blogs! x
