I don’t get it

Dear WordPress:

Can you tell me why sometimes you let me post comments and sometimes you don’t?  I have figured out this much – If I go to type a comment and you don’t know who I am, I am sunk.  Even though I click the little W, and you then twirl and whirl, and come up with my name, the comment can’t be posted.  I have tried refreshing, starting over, even rebooting.  It won’t work.

I am sad, as many of the blogs I follow have comment-worthy posts, but I can’t say a word, I can only silently like.  Now you are keeping me from entering the giveaway at lattes and llamas and that is just cruel.

Please stop.

  1. This has only happened to me on rare occasions, whereas Mr Facebook actually has a vendetta against me ( truth be told I’m not his best friend either LOL)

  2. Yikes. Does this happen on other WordPress blogs only? Do you try to comment via your phone or iPad? Would it help to delete the app and then reload it? On Blogger blogs, you can. Use the WordPress option to comment. I found you can use the open URL or via a Google account.

    1. Yes, it is WordPress only, and I don’t have a phone or ipad, this is just on the laptop. I can use the comment option, and eventually, it might work, but when this is happening, then the comment typing is very slow – like I’ll type the comment, go make a cup of coffee, read a chapter, and come back and the characters are still not all there. Then, posting is equally slow, and doesn’t always work.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
