Have a technical problem commenting?

One commenter has contacted us saying Blogger won't let him post comments, even though he has a Blogger account.

Please email me with details (antarcticlemur@gmail.com) if you have the same problem.

I don't know if this is the same problem or not, but when I click on your comment link, nothing happens (no pop-up). Instead, I need to right click on your comment link and select "open in new window". A minor inconvenience, and perhaps unique to my computer and set up, but if it is common to other users it might be putting some people off.

Are you using Internet Explorer or Firefox? What version, and are you using 3rd-party popup blocking software?

Using IE with Google toolbar but with site pop-ups allowed on your blog. It's something to do with certain blogger templates, possibly the older ones -- I have the same problem on my own blog. Like I said, could be just me and something I have floating around in my setup, but you never know.

For example, the comments window on Cathy Odger's relatively new blog work just fine, even with Google's pop-up blocker turned on! Same set up at my end...

OK I've made our comments code match the latest Blogger templates.

Does it work now?

why don't your comments refrresh each time too?

It's still happening I'm afraid. I did the same thing as you on my own blog but it's not that simple. CSS? If it's any help, the problem started happening on my blog about two months ago when blogger upgraded their comments facility. My blog is more or less inactive and I'm attached to my template -- so I've learned to live with it. I'd be curious to know if anyone else is having this trouble on your blog though.

OK how about now?

I'm going to rewrite our template code as soon as I get some free time - at the moment its messier than Windows.

Still happening. Sorry.

Have a think about a different (or more recent) style sheet as well if you're going to go to much trouble. I'm just guessing but I get the feeling that later templates might be working better because of that. Drop me a line when you get a test-bed up and I'll have another go if you like. Good luck.

All instances of the 'Post Comment' code have now been updated to the latest Blogger standards.

Previously the main page had slightly incorrect code, and the individual post pages had the old pre-popup code.

Despite that, the popup comments have always worked on my Firefox 1.01-1.04 (both Windows and OSX), my Safari 1.02, and my Internet Explorer 6 on WinXp and Win2000.

I'm stumped.

This will have to wait for another couple of weeks until I get some spare time to completely redo SH's template.

Actually, it looks like it's working now. What did you change after my last post last night? Whatever it was, it's done the trick.

I fixed the post page code. OK, so it works now. Great.

Good one. I'll have to come back and study your changes so I can try and fix up my own blog. I'd given up hope!
