Can you comment at my blog?

I'm wondering if any of my readers or visitors have been unable to leave comments as I understand there is a bug associated with the update to threaded comments for those who have comment forms embedded at the bottom of the post which I did. It particularly affects those using IE who wish to leave comments who find they can no longer do so at certain blogs (most likely those with embedded comment forms)
I've changed my comment box to the pop up variety to see if this fixes this glitch. Let me know if you had issues leaving comments at my blog previously and if you can now - thank you so much!
Have you seen a drop in the number of comments at your own blog? Maybe this issue is affecting you too!

I have an Apple computer and use both Firefox and Safari for the internet - if I am using Firefox I can not add comments with embedded comment boxes. However if I switch to Safari I can - as a result I run both depending on the type of comment box!! I was never sure if having an Apple computer was the problem or not as I haven't met anyone having the same problem.

I prefer the type of comment box you have - so thank you:)

I didn't realise that was a problem. Will have to look at my own blog as I know some people can't comment. I was having that problem but seems to have righted itself.
Best wishes for 2012!

YES I can comment - however I had the same problem until I ticked my comments box to "pop up".

there are quite a few blogs I'm still unable to leave comments on - it just goes to a blank screen.

I wish Blogger would 'leave well alone' grrrr.

Third, Ok second, time lucky. I am having trouble seeing a lot of comments section. I get a blank white page on quite a few blogs when I go to comment. My own as well.

I laughed when I read this though as you wont know if people can't comment because they can't tell you...

Hello Ann~
No problem here!
Hope you are having a great day!

Aw, mystery solved. I had been having trouble for a long time with the issue of being able to comment on some blogs and not on others. A woman who responded to me on her own blog said she'd had trouble on mine. Thanks for the info.

Barb - I was hoping that people who have not been able to comment in the past because I was using the embedded form who should now to be able to comment as I have changed to the pop up box would let me know. Or maybe even send me a quick email to let me know if they still can't comment. I understand that changing to a pop up comment box fixes the problem for most people and their number of comments increases! I bet there's a few out there though that think their recent posts are not interesting enough due to the drop off in comments - I was beginning to think that!

Love ya,

Think of you & your beautiful family often. Niki
