Tech Troubles

Apologies to all for the recent problem with comments not posting.  After checking my blog settings, I turned to Google’s Blogger Forum for help.  I soon learned  the issue stems from changes the company made in late October.  Chuck Croll, one of the resident tech geniuses, explained:

“The Blogger / Google login status, and the ability to post comments, is sensitive to both cookie and script filters.  Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) "third party cookies", in their browser and on their computer.  The effects of the newly unavoidable CAPTCHA, and the Google "One account" login, requires third party cookies, even more than before.

“Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution, overall - but your readers may have to search for other filter(s) that affect their use of Blogger / Google.

“Any filters are subject to update, by the creator.  If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago.

“If your friends expect to use Blogger blogs, commenting may not be the only problem they see - until they fix their issue with third party cookies.

“I'm not certain that Google is the only Internet service that uses multiple domains.”

Hopefully, Google can get the problem fixed as it’s really not feasible to expect people to do involved research and change settings just to leave a comment.  Grrrrrrrrr!
