Regarding Popup Windows in Comments on Blogger

Hello everyone!  I just wanted to let you all know:  for those of you whom I normally follow and comment on your posts.

I am not asking any of you to change the way you have your blogs (unless of course you wish and choose to), but I am telling you all this so that you won't think that I am ignoring your posts or that I have decided to no longer follow your blog!  :)

If I haven't been commenting for a while, and I usually do on a regular basis, it may very well be because when I click on the 'comments' link on your post, there is a popup window.  :(  I have been having serious issues with popup windows in the comments on blogger, to the point where my computer freezes.

Since I don't have a lot of knowledge in the technical realm, I can't really explain it, except to say that it is happening and I don't know why.  I have done a thorough check on my computer and I have no bad issues, so it is a mystery to me.

If you notice when you click on the 'comments' link on my blog, there is no popup window, as it is 'embedded'.  On blogs that have their comments link embedded I have no issues and am able to comment, but the minute I get a popup window, as I mentioned above, I have serious issues.

I just wanted to let you all know, so that if you see that I am not commenting on your posts, and I normally do, this may be the reason.  

If any of you are having similar issues please feel free to let me know.  

Thank you all so much.

Linda

  2. I think mine is embedded as opposed to a popup. I have noticed odd difficulties on one system with some blogs taking time to load but not another separate system. Have you had a go at trying those blogs in Chrome?

    1. Hi William, yours is indeed embedded! I use Chrome only, I love it.

  3. I haven't had issues with any pop ups that freeze. I don't think anyone is having a problem with mine as I have lots of comments but I'm going to pose the question on my blog. I hope the issue gets fixed for you soon ;-)

    1. Hi Launna, I had problems a couple of months ago with popup comment windows in Blogger, and I was not alone....https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/blogger/FybFaRgm6IM

  4. Hi Linda, if I choose to have "embedded "like you, can I still have them sent to my email. first before publishing? I had so many scam comments I went this way a while ago. I'll Google the options and decide soon . Cheers,Jean

  5. Hi Jean, oh yes, you certainly can! I have my comments under moderation, like yourself, and I receive e-mails. I understand the spam thing, which is why I moderate all comments. I have my comments link embedded and can still moderate the comments and receive e-mails.

  8. I'm going to assume because I see you regularly in my comments that I'm okay-there have been a couple of blogs where I've tried leaving a comment in the pop up box and couldn't, this usually righted itself in a couple of days...no freezing though. Good information to share.

  9. Coucou Linda,
    J'ai aussi déjà eu une fenêtre de publicité qui était continuellement en apparence sur mon blog et elle est repartie toute seule, heureusement...J'ai également une fenêtre pop-un qui s'ouvre quand je clique sur n'importe laquelle lien sur mon blog et j'ai bien chercher à la faire disparaître mais je n'ai jamais réussi.... J'espère trouver un jour la solution!!

    Je t'embrasse et bon dimanche ♥(ˆ⌣ˆ)

    I'm having difficulty with some Blogger blogs...the 'comment' bit doesn't appear at all...and I've no idea how to get it to do so.

  12. Hello, glad you mentioned pop-up window comment problem. Until today, I had no problem with them but this morning I tried commenting on a familiar blog and a little pop-up popped up in front of the comment pop-up inviting me to enter my email address and Google password. The little window looked official --but then, they all do, don't they? I had to shut down my computer to get it to go away. Is this close to what happened when you say your "computer freezes"?

Please do not be shy! I appreciate your kind comments, they are sweet treasures and really make my day! Spammers, do not waste your time, I delete your comments and they do not even show on my blog. Comment moderation is enabled. I do hope that Blogger's changes in the way of proving that you are not a robot do not deter you from commenting! Thank you so much! If you have Google+ and are only allowing Google+ users to comment on your blog, I do not have, nor do I want it. And if you use DISQUS for accepting comments on your blog I don't have that, either, nor do I want it. Thanks!
