Broken Comments and the Lovely Tess

It turns out that sometime in the last month my comments decided to get stupid and stop working. I didn't know this until I got an email from the fantastic Tess Hilmo telling me she'd tried and tried but my blog just wouldn't let her comment.

I jumped on the interwebs and immediately started messing with settings and changing things, because what else are you gonna do at 1:10 in the morning when you can't sleep? So I checked my comments and everything said it was fine but it wouldn't actually let you post one, hmph.

I changed my template and reset my cookies (not the good kind) and caches and I even deleted the 'blogs I follow' widget to see if maybe that's what was causing it to be stupid; it wasn't. Everything was just the way it was supposed to be, I'd never changed any settings, but for some reason blogger still wasn't letting me comment. so I changed the format of the comment to not be at the bottom of my posts and for some reason that just cleared everything up.

Twenty minutes after I'd started, I wondered why I hadn't just tried that in the first place. *sigh*

Anyway, this post has absolutely nothing to do with writing and everything to do with saying a HUGE
Thank you!!

to you Tess! You're awesome and I appreciate you emailing me to let me know something was up.

Also, the picture has nothing to do with anything, or it could be a response to the tiny monkeys from Tess' post yesterday O.o, but either way they're lemurs and they're adorable so you should go here and check out the best site EVER for cute or here for the next best thing. :)

Aww, I've been commenting less, so didn't notice that your comment feature wasn't working. I've run across this problem before in Blogger. Sometimes it's a temporary problem. But I'm glad you could get it fixed! And I like this format for comments, anyway. :)

Tess said...

Ah, t'was nothing. I just know I'd like someone to tell me if my blogger was being moody.

And, love the lemur picture. Reminds me of when my oldest used to watch Zabomofoo on PBS...but I'm dating myself here.

Glam- Thanks for taking the time to comment today; I know you've been busy, so it's quite alright. Just keep working on that writing! :D

Tess- If your site is ever wonky, you can bet I'll let you know. And aren't they cute? I love animals.

I never got into PBS shows so you're safe, I have no idea how old that show is. Of course I'm still waiting on the original Power Rangers to come out on DVD so I can relive my childhood. Oh yea, that's right, Power Rangers. I have the first movie. Haha. :P

Glad to see your comments are fixed :) Great job, Tess!

Icy Roses said...

Oh yay! I tried to comment too, but I figured it was just a problem of my computer, so...

Maybe I should have told you.

I would like to add I watched Zaboomafoo way back when too. I think I had a crush on Chris Kratt. At the age of eight or nine, haha.

Amanda J. said...

There are comments! It makes me so happy to see you all after a month of nothing. *sigh* See, Tess, you've made my day again. :)

Jenn, I'm glad they're back up and that you stopped by!

Icy, I tend to think it's just my computer too, so no worries. :)
