Blogger Issues - White screen, no comments - Fix :)

Just a quick wee post from me today.

Yesterday my blog wasnt playing nicely, and everytime I tried to access a post from the main page to read comments etc, it just went blank.

I googled blogger issues, and it seems that they have altered the 'threading' in embedded comments yesterday, and many other bloggers were having the same problem.

The easy fix is:

Comment Placement - You have to untick the radio button next to Embedded Comments and select 'Pop Up' instead.

This will fix it :)  And will allow people to see your blog properly and leave comments.  Hope this helps anyone having the same problems.

Edited to add: This will only fix the issue on your own blog, you cant change what you see on others blogs obviously, and this could affect quite a few blogs :(

Right - oh - made those changes and it seems to be working - THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH


Kathyk said...

Only temporary - still many blogs I can't comment on - do you have the link to blogger help please?

Kathy, its a temporary fix, and will fix your blog only, so people can comment on your posts and your blog works correctly until blogger fixes it.

I dont have a link, as it was just a forum discussion I stumbled on at my dads yesterday, but my understanding is that all those affected need to alter their own blog settings, you cant change what you see on other peoples blogs obviously. At least for now it will fix your blog :)

Thanks, I was having the same problem, but found upon refreshing the screen it brought the comments box up, so at least I could get by. But obvious now I'll try to sort it properly.

Hi Alison, thanks for the info. I know my comments are in a pop-up box, so hopefully I'm ok there. I would like to know why I'm not getting updates on other peoples blogs in my dashboard tho! Blooming blogger can be so frustrating.

Hi Alison. Thank you for your e-mail and for letting me know about the blogger problem. I haven't been able to comment that much this week so hadn't noticed any problems when I was commenting. However, my aunt also e-mailed me to say she could comment on Hollie's blog but not mine. Have changed the settings. Thanks again. Donna

Erika said...

Thanks for sharing.
