Have you noticed the recent Blogger changes? I know GB did, because he blogged about it and was the first to draw my attention to it this morning. It must have changed over night from where I am on the globe!
Using the Pop-up comment forms (with a new look), there is no longer the option to subscribe to further comments on that post. Not everyone wants to do that, of course. I far from always do it myself, but sometimes I do. Especially on a certain blogs where interesting discussions often arise in the comment section. And I would still like to have the option, as well as offer it to others.
Using the Embedded comments form, the option to subscribe is still there. Now, the problem when I’ve tried to change to that alternative here in the past is that then there always seems to be one or two or more people who are mysteriously not able to comment at all. It’s still a complete riddle to me why, especially since the problem does not seem to arise on my latest blog, Greetings from the Past. (With the same readers. And layout based on the same template.) If anyone can offer an explanation I’d be very grateful!
In the meantime, I’m doing one more attempt here to switch to embedded comments. Apologies to Sandra and Ginny and whoever else might be concerned. I don’t want to shut off your possibilities to comment. If it turns out there are still problems, I’ll switch back again.
Meanwhile, I’d be very grateful if everyone reading this while I have the embedded comments form up, will grant me a favour and put in a reply – and if you fail, please email me instead at firstname.lastname@example.org and try to describe what happens. If I get any failure-reports I’ll copy them onto here for others to take part of – hoping there may be someone out there who can help me figure out what’s going on! Thank you!
As ABC-Wednesday post I’m aware this is not one of my best (I wish it had been C-week instead, because then I could have challenged you with Complaints Concerning Changes in Comments and Communication) but I’m still linking to see if maybe responses from a few more people than the regular followers might help cast some extra light on things. I hope no one will get too grumpy about that!
