I have had a couple CC readers write me and say that they have been unable to fill out the comment form. Since this has happened more than once and by more than one person, I have to believe this is a real problem.
Comments are coming in, so it is not an absolute problem. I have no problem entering comments and have done a couple tests using different browsers and all comments have been entered.
I have WordPress configured to hold all comments for new email addresses until I authorize them. After the first comment has been authorized, then all future comments will be displayed immediately.
I have to assume this problem is either a WordPress problem or a browser problem. To eliminate the possibility that it is a browser problem, you can try a couple things. One, you can try a different browser. If it works on the second browser, then it most likely a cache or cookie problem with the first browser.
To try it on the original browser, I would try clearing cache. You will have to search your browser’s options to see how to do that. You can google for cleaning cache on your browser and there will be help.
If that didn’t help, them try clearing cookies.
If it will not allow you to comment with a newly installed browser, I am stumped and open to suggestions from anyone who can comment.
Also, if you are having problems of not being allowed to comment, drop me an email so I can see how widespread the problem is.
UPDATE: It appears that all known problems have been resolved to Cache, Cookie or temporary problems. I only had three people notify me of real problems and those seem to have gone.
However, if you post a comment and it doesn’t appear I would still like to know. Remember that the first time you post on this site, the comment will be placed in a review queue. This is to prevent Bot Spammers from posting on the blog.
