I know, I know, you get what you pay for. Blogger, for the most part works pretty good for me...most of the time. However, every once and a while, it seems to go off with a mind of its own and does things for seemingly no rhyme or reason.
Recently, there seemed to be many of us that were having problems posting comments on other people's blogs. Sometimes the comment would disappear when you hit the post button, other times you'd end up in a repetitious cycle that kept sending you to your account sign in page.
Investigation revealed two issues, one was that blog owners had their security settings too restrictive, the other was that Internet Explorer 9 users (of which I am/was one) were having the problems with incompatible programs to work in Blogger. The recommended fix was to switch to another Internet browser. I switched to Google Chrome on my Toshiba laptop and it seemed to correct the issue of commenting posts. Marti uses FireFox on her Hewlett Packard laptop with great success.
The funny thing is our desktop PC in our den still has the old IE8 browser and it posts comments just fine. Another mystery of bytes, bits and the assorted electrons that move all the zeros and ones around.
Now, on to the next, newest mystery. On my blog and on many other blogs that I read, I'm getting the dreaded red "X" where pictures should be. With both IE9 and Goggle Chrome. Yet, Marti doesn't get the problem with FireFox.
I'm scratchin' my noggin here. Is anyone else having this problem? Or have you been able to find a fix to resolve the loss of pictures? I hate to miss out on some of the great photos that bloggers put in their blogs for all of us to enjoy.
