Bloody Blogger Beta

Dear friends who are currently using Blogger Beta,

I'm currently having problems placing comments in your blogs. I kept getting this error message everytime I tried posting a comment:

Blogger Error Message

I'm not on Blogger Beta (and has no intention of ever switching to one, because it's a real pain in the ass). I tried so many times to comment on your blogs, but to no avail. Nope, I don't think it was a wrong-password problem; I even tried typing my password REALLY slowly. I have no problems with the classic Blogger. Is anybody else having this problem?

Bugger :(

So this was the dreaded "bug". Someone else caught it and managed to fix it. I don't know if it'll work for you, though

hmm... i guess, you can sign in as "other" and proceed as usual...

giant sotong: So far, not that I know of. It really is annoying.

jaxon s: Thanks, that helped :) Not for blogs which do not allow anonymous comments though, but at least it's a starter.

Yup, I face that too so I use "Other" to sign in.

Yup, I am another beta blogger here. The Beta interface and layout is great and all but, I hated the bugs plus the fact that it's extremely difficult to change the theme if we have no prior CSS knowledge - sucks! I am now stuck with a boring theme :(

Yeah, I sign in as 'Others' too to overcome this annoying bug. Even this, gives us problems sometimes - kepts on asking us to re-key in the word verification. This could reallllly damped visitor's drive to insert a comment.

Guess we have to wait till Blogger Beta iron things out. That's the price we pay to be a guinea pig. LOL

That was a regular problem I faced so I use the Other link. I tried the Blogger Beta layout but since I'm not tech savvy enough to meddle with the widgets, I abandoned it. A boring blogger template was just not for me. :)

kleio: I heard of a lot of complaints other bloggers were having after having switched to Blogger Beta, hence I decided to stick to the classic one, which wasn't giving me any problems anyway. Yeah, I faced the same problem as you when I posted as 'Others' - the word verification thingy is a real pain in the ass. Oh well, what to do, can't really complain, Blogger's free after all :P

paris beaverbanks: I'm too chicken to even try out Blogger Beta. I'm afraid I may not be able to switch back to the classic if I don't like the beta. Can that be done? Switching over to the classic from beta, I mean? Or am I stuck for good if I switch?

beetrice said...

well, I have no intention of switching over either...too 'marfan'...

one option you could do is actually log into blogger first before cruising other blogs...then your identity shows up as is - no need to log in again...

Tine said...

beetrice: Unfortunately, that is not possible. I was already logged on to Blogger; I could comment on classic Blogger sites, but not the beta ones.

Stick to the old one, ppl! It's just not worth the hassle :P

Actually I am using the classic layout. You can switch back from the beta layout, but make sure you save it just in case. My account in beta blogger but the template is not so I can fiddle with it all I want lol...

paris beaverbanks: Hmm ... sounds like a good idea, I shall check it out. Thanks! :)
