Broken Blogger

While we have been able to post on our blog, even if sporadically. Sometimes it let’s us sign in and post, but other times there’s an endless loop of trying to sign in and leave a post comment on another blog.

Just wanted y’all to know, we really tried to comment on some recent posts as you may have tried on ours and know what . . .

It ain’t our collective faults!

Seems like issues with Blogger are becoming a weekly (almost daily) problem. There’s a website with known issues – called Known Issues for Blogger – The latest on what's still a problem, what's getting fixed, and what's been taken care of, direct from the Blogger team. And there’s also a Blogger Help support page. Only problem (and a BIG one) is both these sites don’t seem very helpful and are not really current

Here’s what some folks have reported in the past 24 hours  on the blogger help site. . . please note that all comments are verbatim (including types, abbreviations, etc.)

No it still isn't working for me I still need to log in to place a reaction in someone's blog and I am still anonymous.

Can't log in at all on blogger. Logged in fine to Gmail (which is usually "good enough" .. but keep getting log in screen for any attempt to access admin tools for blogger).

I login at my dashboard, no problems there. I go to a blogger blog and comment, and instead of my username being there I have to pick "Google account", which then takes me to the login screen, where I login (selecting remember me), and I get taken to the comment form again, and show up as anonymous, instead of as my user name. Then I type the word verification, and click post, and it takes me to the login screen again. Then after I login again it takes me to the comment, and I have to start all over again. It also isn't accepting WordPress or OpenID as an option.  Also, I end up getting logged out of all other Google products (reader, Gmail, etc.).

I click on sign in and it takes me to my dashboard just find, but when I click view blog it takes me to my blog page, but it says sign in again in the upper right hand corner.  I can no longer edit anything from my home page.  I can only work from my's driving me nuts!  Help!

We're investigating an issue which is preventing login and comment posting for some users, and hope to have a fix released shortly. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.
Labels: comments, login, outstanding

Also Tuesday from the Blogger Help from Brett, Google employee. . .

Hey folks, an update: We are in the process of rolling out a fix which should address the issues from this morning. Please reply directly in this thread and let us know if things have resolved. This affected my personal blog, and now things are fixed so I'm assuming others will see an improvement very soon (if they haven't already) -- -brett

Keep on working on that fix, cause it’s STILL broken.

Now before one can comment i check to see how they have me signed in. I looked over their site, but the problem still exists today.

That´s why I left Blogger, always problems and no real help to get! Things do happen at Word Press too but rarely and never for to long.

Have a great day now!

Yes, Eileen (Cicero) the problem still persists. I was able to sign in and post some replies tonight.

Thanks, Steve for the heads up on letting me know the problem continues (darn). I tried to leave a comment on one of your recent posts last night and couldn't. Maybe tonight will be better???

Christer, we have also been thinking about a switch. Did your entire blog transfer over to wordpress?
