WordPress Glitch

Over the last few days, the number of WordPress blogs I follow on which I have been unable to comment has grown. I gather that some of you can’t comment on mine. Here is a very useful post by Karen of Booker Talk which sums up and deals with some of the issues. If you’re a WordPress blogger or follower, I urge you to read it and if you’re affected, to contact WordPress.

  3. I’ve had the error message too on a couple of blogs, but I often use the reader to comment especially on my phone, as quite often the WP app doesn’t recognise I am logged in. Not had a problem with your blog. So far…

  4. Despite having learned their mantra ‘assume good intent’, I sometimes suspect a sneaky plot to force us all on to The Reader. Having said that, I do use it and click through to the ‘real’ blog if I want to search around on it. They keep making it harder and harder to click through but it still works if you click on the post title.
