Locked Out……

lock final

Alas, I have been updating some security settings on  the old wheezing computer and have discovered something that I cannot determine if it is *me* or Blogger.

On pages that do not have a separate pop up window for comments, no matter where I am logged in, or how many times I try to log in, it is an exercise in futility…..with some interesting language along the way too.

Thus, I am providing the shot of the page in blogger where you can set your comments to *pop up box* as opposed to imbedded under the post. Another perk of this is anyone with a Mac cannot use anything but the pop up box to comment.

So, here below we have my cropped and fancy screenshot that is pretty self explanatory….I think……

I am hoping this is why I have not been able to comment. If not, hmmmmmm then, I am completely flummoxed and it is beyond my figuring out.

I have actually been doing a bit of blog hopping; I just can’t let you know what I wanted to say! (which might be good….you decide…)

Pax….

Anne I am having trouble too. My computer is so slow I can hardly tolerate it. My son has worked on it and it still is not up to par and he is an IT man. There is so much going on in the space, it is scary to me.
I will give your idea a try.

Well, it's an easy thing to change back if it doesn't work---I've just noticed since some of the changes were made that I could consistently leave a comment in a pop up....
But who knows! LOL!!!
Maybe it's a sign I should do something else???? ;)

XXOO~~♥

Hmn. I always had mine set to full page since 2006 and I have never had problems. The comments under the post does not allow anyone who uses mobile devices to comment, that is why it takes me days to comment on some people's blogs sometimes because I have to get to a desktop or a laptop.

I thought you are locked up because of snow. Have a lovely week!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I wish it was snow......been sick too but it seems most of this is either a glitch here, or in Blogger. I've had problems for some time but they would clear up. Now it seems they are not....Pffffft!!!!

TSUP!!♥♥♥

Gloria said...

It looks like you have it set up for registered users only, I have mine on "anyone." The "full page" is checked on mine. I don't know, try changing the settings. Have a great week and good luck.

Robbie said...

I'm so behind in blop hopping I don't even know who's on first! Not much help from this Michigan gal!

yoborobo said...

Who knows? I think it's all about paying tribute to the Blogger Troll. Have you offered him tasty treats lately? I found that pork rinds offered regularly have kept things humming along. However, you will notice that I have not posted a new blog post since BEFORE HALLOWEEN! LOL! Hang in there. xoxo Pam

You still know so much more of the blog power and comments...I wish you the very best. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Hi Anne,
Like Robbie, I'm so far behind in my blog hopping...it was supposed to be my weekend pleasure over coffee, sigh. I changed mine awhile back when someone told me they had trouble. Nothing more frustrating than computer stuff. Pork rinds, hmmm next time I'm in Indiana I'll pick some up (although I'll have to tell the hubby he can't eat them, for the blog gods only).
hugs,
Christine

Silke said...

Ok, I've changed mine to pop-up window. I MISS your comments! Try and see if it works now... Love, Silke

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Silke---

IT WORKED!!!! I can comment at your blog again!
Happy-happy-joy-joy!!!!


XXOO~~♥

Jan said...

I'll try changing mine but I know for a fact that my friends who use Macs can leave comments and do. Plus Tristan is the one who advised me how to set up my comments so he could leave comments from his Mac. Not that he does, leave comments that is. Where the heck is Tristan these days anyway. Well, that is neither here nor there. I will let you know when I change and then you can try commenting again on my blog as I know it is one you have been having problems with. No one else seems to be having problems with mine.

Jan said...

Okay, changed. try me.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Jan---per second comment.....be careful where you say that you man-magnet you!!!! ;D
Going over now....

XXOO~~♥

Deborah said...

I think mine is on pop up. A lot of things are popping up around here, but most things are definitely heading downwards...teehee. I am so far behind on blog hopping but ahead on my yard work! I think your Gary is going to need to send you out here to sit in the hot tub and then get a little sun to get rid of your sickies!!! Oooo, and a little hot rum. **kisses** Deb

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Oh yeah, hot tub and cool wine......is Milo going to be there too? (away from the cantina of course!)
What a day what a day.......
DH doing good but stayed home to give everything another day to heal.
I'm behind on everything too---it just gets so busy at this time of year!

XXOO~~♥

Great photo's!
Hugs,

Manon Doyle said...

I'm not sure what to say...lol! So.... I'll just say *hi*!!
Forget about this and go have yourself a glass of wine!!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Manon~~

That sounds like very sound advice to me! LOL!
A special vintage just for Blogger.....SOUR GRAPES! :D

XXOO~~♥
Anne

Marie S said...

I changed mine. If you get a chance will you see if it works.
I have missed your comments, unless you don't want to talk to me!

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

You are hilarious! I have been laughing at your message over here at my blog. You are beautiful lady and don't you forget it! Beautiful!!!! And I love you.

i dunno...

sympathy for the devil said...

this is confusing...

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Well, it is confusing on the *why* part, but the pop up window seems to do the trick.
At least until Blogger changes something again.
I think they are trying to drive me crazier than I already am.....hahaha!!!! ;D

XXOO~~♥
Anne

Ces said...

What is going on here? Are you locked out? Snowed in? What is going on with the hanging?

Deborah said...

Anne!!! How strange. Is it something to do with your internet provider? Did your computer fall and break a hip??? Maybe you could try making a test blog and see if a new one would work better...OUCH. No need to slap me!!! Spam fry and hot links to you!
**blows kisses** Deb

Ces said...

Anne, will you please let me take a look at your blog?

Ces said...

Let me see if I can replicate the problem here o my site and then we can determine whether it is a hardware or software issue?

*Ulrike* said...

Mine is a pop up comment which I like. A lot of blogs are not, and then I have to go through steps to get back to reading. Of course I have not been the best on that yet with the weather changing I'm blog reading more.

Post a Comment

Talk to me Dahling!
I'm waiting, breathless...... ;-D
