Gah blogspot is making me crazy

I don't know about anyone else but I am having problems posting on some of your blogs.  I get the comments written and then when it comes to word verification it locks up and won't take the comment.  I have given up a few times trying to post because after several attempts it still won't take it.  So it you haven't gotten any comments from me that is what's happening.  I almost threw my iPad and then phone against the wall because of the frustration factor.  Uggggh!

Worked this time!

But yeah I often have problems where it bombs out on me. I've taking to copying my comment text just in case I have to try again and again...really frustrating sometimes!

Yep, its happening to me too. I'm feeling your pain. I do the same as Andrew, copy my comment before sending.

It's a combination of Blogspot and mobile Safari. If you move the screen or want to move the cursor by touch, you need to hit the next or done button then touch where you want the cursor to be. If you move the page or try to move the cursor, Safari locks up and you lose your comment.

Computers don't have the problem and other browsers on the iPhone and iPad have the same issue.

I have the problem on a laptop running Chrome - you'd think Google products would like each other...

Dar:

I only post comments using a PC windows 7.

I had a problem with Picasa Web albums, seems google has changed the display to google++ plus which is different. Hover your curser near the top and there is a pop up where you can "undo" and change it back

I thought Richard had it. I'm too often Commenting from my IPhone and have the same problem. Moving the screen in any way jumps out of the comment section.

I just punch Done, it gets out of the editor and then get back in, continuing from where I left off. Frustrating but workable

I've had this and other problems. Aggravating, but I chalk it up to life in the modern age. Thirty years ago we didn't worry about this. Then we just got angry 'cause the mailman was late. :)

Same thing. I've experienced this for years, come and goes, but no problem recently. I copy to notepad, too, sometimes. I'm Windows, too.

But I think the word verification can cause some issues.

I have gotten into the habit of when I write a comment. Copy the words so if it freezes, I can refresh the page and paste my comment back in without re-typing it or trying to remember what I said.

Sometimes it works better depending on browser too. I can't comment on any blog in Firefox or my comment disappears as soon as I click Publish - I always have to use Safari.

It happened on occasion which is quite annoying, so before I post something I copy it, so that I can paste it in case it gets lost...

Just came across your blog and am happy to have found it. Sorry you're having comment troubles.

I'm a big WordPress fan myself. You can self-host it or run a free blog off of Wordpress.org, but either way, you have so much more control over how these sorts of things are handled. If you're so inclined, you can export blogger and import all your previous posts and comments to WordPress if you were so inclined.

Happy riding!
