Comments Not Showing Up on Blogger Sites (and how I fixed it)

Comments Not Showing Up on Blogger Sites (and how I fixed it)

confused

I just wanted to mention that I have been having a problem leaving comments on blogspot sites I follow by email.  I submit the comments, but they do not appear in the comment section with all the others.  At first I thought that the comments just needed to be moderated, but now I am not sure what is going on.  Anyway, I just want you all to know that I look at, and enjoy, all the posts I receive email notifications for even if I cannot tell you on your site.  Hopefully this is only a temporary glitch.

Update:  It appears it was a google+ issue (due to the recent shut down March 2019). 

from:
https://blogger.googleblog.com/2019/01/an-update-on-google-and-blogger.html

Comments: Support for Google+ Comments will be turned down, and all blogs using Google+ Comments will be reverted back to using Blogger comments on 4 February 2019. Unfortunately, comments posted as Google+ comments cannot be migrated to Blogger and will no longer appear on your blog.

Google+ Profile: In March 2019, Blogger will revert to only having Blogger profiles. Users that have selected a G+ profile in the past will appear as unknown authors until they next login to Blogger and supply a new display name and avatar.

I changed my blogger user profile setting to blogger (instead of google+ which is what it had been – I didn’t even know I had a blogger profile – lol!!), and now I am able to leave comments on blogger sites again.  Hopefully this is the end of the issue.  It’s frustrating that I’ve been leaving comments for days and they haven’t been posting.  Sigh...

I found this tutorial HERE if you haven’t switched from a Google+ Profile to a Blogger Profile yet and need help.  (This link jumps right to the part of the article where you change your user profile, but the rest of the article is helpful if you need to set up and configure your blogger profile.)

Thanks for checking out  my post!

  1. That is a bummer! I am not sure if you had issues with mine or not as I would not have any idea if you commented if they don’t appear. Could it still be a Google + issue you think?

  2. For my blog, any posts older than 7 days get moderated. I did approve a couple of yours recently.

    When I had this issue in recent months, I found that I needed to update the settings on my ipad (I don’t think it had anything to do with my blogger account). It had some safety thing on automatically, which blocked pop ups or something, but also made it so I couldn’t comment on some blogger blogs.
