Commenting On Blog Posts

Hi All,

I've been experiencing a situation whereas I am not able to post comments to some of your blog posts and thought I'd pass along some info that might be effecting some of you.   Not everyone is affected by this as some of your blogs are set up in a fashion that allows for posting comments.  Some of you may have noticed that you've not received comments in quite some time.   I was affected when Blogspot made some recent changes to incorporated new design features.  If by chance you have been affected, you may try the following to remedy the situation.  You can fix by doing the following:

1. Go into your "Dashboard" and find the "Settings" Tab, click on it.
2. Next find your "comments" tab, click on it.
3. Find your "comment form placement" field.
4. Make sure the "pop up window" option is checked/marked.
5. Scroll down to bottom of page and make sure to select "save settings" which should correct the problem.

When someone visits your blog and wants to leave a comment to your post or posts, it will open a "pop up window" that will allow them to comment effectively.

Most of you have a comment field at the bottom of your posts, however it does not give the option of commenting using your Google ID, Anonymous, or other ID options, nor does it give the "word verification" codes that must be used to enter a comment.

I hope this is not too confusing and that it helps any of you that may be experiencing the same.

Good Luck and Happy Blogging!!
