Blog blues…

computer-frustration-744355 We’ve received some e-mails from blogger friends who are having trouble leaving comments on our blog. That’s not good, especially if you want to enter our giveaway!! And some of you can’t even open our blog — that’s not good either :-(

We’d really appreciate hearing from those of you who are having trouble so we can see if there’s a common element. Please send us an e-mail at designties@gmail.com and let us know if you’re having trouble opening DesignTies and/or leaving a comment.

And if you can’t leave a comment but want to enter our giveaway, send us an e-mail and we’ll add your name into the draw.

Thanks for helping us out.

A new visitor to DesignTies, Carol, suggested that moving the Followers gadget to the very bottom of our sidebar might help. Someone else told me last week that the Followers gadget could be the problem. I’m pretty sure it was Diane — want to give credit where credit is due!! I moved the gadget, and Carol was able to post a comment and didn’t get booted.

I don’t know how moving the gadget can solve the problem, but if that does the trick, who am I to question it?! Thanks for the help, ladies!!

I haven't had any trouble...it can be frustrating though...And I think I'm already entered. Watch this doesn't go through.

It's been a taking a while for your site to load on my system, maybe there are lots of big sized pictures? No matter, I wait it out - LOVE your blog!

Okay, I'm back and everything worked fine. I even let my cursor sit on your email link (since that is when I got the "abort" alert before...and I'm still here!

I haven't had any trouble, but it's strange because I know another blogger (who is on Blogger, http://chocolateandwhine.blogspot.com/) that is having trouble with people not being able to leave comments.

Just so you know, I'm not having any issues--I can read your blog and comment just fine! Sorry to hear others are having problems, though. How frustrating.

I did read something similar on someone else's blog (but I'm blanking on whose it was). They seemed to deduce that it was mostly people using Internet Explorer that were having issues. I'm using Firefox myself. Maybe there's something to that?

hi kelly and victoria, i dont think it is just your site. I have been on some others that abort when you try to go on. Hope this goes through and your problems end soon.
hugs

Hi Kelly & Victoria, I was having issues but thought it was on my end. Trouble with site either clicking or typing in name, page would blink and blink and then abort. Appears fresh as a daisy today. Good job Ladies!

Thanks for all the feedback. It really helps to know what kinds of problems people are having. Not that we know how to fix anything, but at least now that we're aware of the problems, we can look for someone who can help us solve them.

It's good to hear that some of you aren't having any problems at all :-)

Thanks everyone!!

Something is definitely going on with Internet Explorer and Blogger. I have been having problems for the past few weeks. Let me know if you find out anything!

Maria Killam said...

Hey, I'm here again to get on the list for the book :)

Maria, you rock!!! :-)

Popping in again today to see if it's still working. It is working perfect. Still seeing the problem on other blogs. Do you think it was really just moving the "Followers" to bottom? How simple!!

I hate when technology gets in the way of free stuff!!! Hope you get all the glitches ironed out, but there are no problems to report from me - I can leave comments as usual.

Thanks Carol & Donna. I have no idea if moving the Followers gadget fixed the problem. But if things are working better, why question it?! The gadget is staying in its new home!!

Thanks ladies :-)
