Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Thanks for Your Patience On Commenting

thankful thursday blog hop brian 02012018 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello everyone and welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Every Thursday we tell you about the things for which we are most thankful. I know I say this all the time, but we really do enjoy hearing about your thankfuls and we love it when you join our Hop. It’s hard to believe that February is here, it seems like we just started the New Year.

Today, on Thankful Thursday, I’m most thankful for your patience.  We’ve had multiple reports from several of you that each time you leave a comment you have to fill out your name, email and blog address.  We know what a pain that can be as several blogs we visit we have to do that each time too.  Our blog runs on WordPress and the Dad is pretty good at the WordPress thing.  Usually when that happens there is some type of plug-in clearing out the cache on a regular basis.  That’s not the case here, we’re not running anything to clear the cache.  It could be one of the security plug-ins we use to keep the spammers at bay.  We use Wordfence and could not find anything in the newly upgraded plug-in with any type of cache settings.  It is strange, however, that Wordfence just upgraded in the past week.

At this point it’s a mystery to us, but the Dad is on the hunt for a solution.  We really do appreciate your patience.  Let me ask you WordPress bloggers, do you have any other ideas we may not have thought about?  If you do, let us know in the comments.

I hope you have a most wonderful day and we look forward to seeing your Thankful Thursday Blog Hop posts.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Hey, we captured a similar kitty lounge shot but I guess cat comfort is a universal thing. I have to fill out my name etc. in every comment I leave on every blog. No biggie and Chrome autofill help.

We are okay with it, Brian. We’re just glad you and your family are here, and that you have this awesome blog hop each week. Hugs!

No worries from us, Brian. autofill keeps the typing minimal 🙂 our mom isn’t so savvy in these sorts of things so we are thankful to not be having issues with blogger 🙂 you are looking mighty relaxed, btw. nice little paw curl too! purrs,

I don’t mind having to fill out my name and such every time – I have autofill anyhow!

Hmmm..for the first time in a while I have NOT had to enter my name and other details…
But it does not bother me Brian…Autofill does that when I type the first letters!

It is no big deal. usually we just have to put in the first initial and the name comes up. You are sweet to care

I am sure your Dad will get it figured out.

I’m having to reenter Name/email info on your blog, but it’s not a big deal.
On my self-hosted WordPress blog, I have some readers whose comments get stuck in moderation, even though I have moderation off. It’s been going on for months and I can’t figure it out.
Little “first world” annoyances….all in all, still plenty around here to be thankful for…. like fun blogs to read and gorgeous kitties to visit!

It’s no problem for us, the auto-fill in works after we type the furst letter ;O)

Looking cute there Brian!

I don’t seem to have to put my name down but I also have a wordpress blog. I wonder if this is the difference. My info is already here.

Nothing will stop us from commenting here – no matter what kinda forms we have to fill out! However, we are also WP and never have had to fill anything out – at least YET – here on your bloggy! Happy Thursday and THANK YOU for hosting the Thankful Hop……….

Love, Teddy

I was wondering why it did that, figured it was my browser. Oh well, copy and paste does the trick rather fast anyway.

WE will try to ask Mommy’s cousin about WordPress, she is teaching a class on it at the library, so maybe she knows why the comment thingy is the way it is. We are happy to report all our info was there so we aren’t having the problems others are experiencing. We use Firefox, just in case it is a browser issue.

We don’t mind at all. We have auto fill too. We are just thankful to have your blog to read. You all have a really good day.

Funny you brought that up today, since I’ve had to do that for a few days here. But now I look below and all my information is there! It looks like your Dad found a solution or it just fixed itself!
I know someone had the same issue with my blog, but I think it was just temporary.
Anyway, no worries here, we know exactly how these technical glitches are, and we just go with the flow. 🙂

We haven’t really minded because all we need to do is type the first letter in each category and it auto-fills! And we don’t even need to do that today!

Boy, Brian, Word Press is what is giving me fits! And as for you, you’re worth filling in for. I have to do that at several other places too. But all of you are worth it. XXXX

My blog is WordPress, too and my info is automatically filled in.

Yesterday we looked for the moon – tomorrow we’ll be wondering if there are ground hogs in Florida… life is zooming along. Hope you have a fantastic day.

We found it odd our info was no longer there when we comment, but it’s not a big deal. If we type the first letter, the info pops up, so we don’t have to type it all in new. Always something with computers!

Yeah, we’ve had that problem with commenting here, too, but it’s not too bad! Good thing your dad is on the hunt for a solution though. Happy Thursday!

We are thankful that no new cases of the eye “icks” have sprung up in the last couple of days! We haven’t had a problem here with having to refill the name/e-mail/website boxes. We use WordFence as well and no one has complained to us about this happening on or site. My suggestion to those having problems is to make macros for their information. I can fill in all the spaces with just two key strokes for each. If you don’t know how to do this on your computer. Google it. There’s always an answer in Google. Brian, Dad Terry… Read more »

I”m a WordPress blogger and I’ve been running into glitches myself. Good luck. I still see you have to put all info in each time.

Brian, I have that no-fill-in thing with a few blogs, but didn’t today with yours. I figured it has something to do with my computer. I have a few different comment accounts, so I have no idea which one is working! LOL!

It is not a big problem for us – we would rather have to take the time to enter those few extra words than miss seeing the wonderful posts here every day. We are thankful for bloggers who care enough to listen to their commenters and try to help – no worries whatsoever – so many more important things to deal with in life.

Mom Paula is slowly learning the WP stuff, but it’s slow going. There are a couple of updates it’s wanting her to do, but she’s going to wait until your dad can look into it.

Memories of Eric and Flynn

Strangely enough I don’t have to re-enter my details on your blog, but do have to on several other WordPress blogs. I don’t worry about it if I have to because auto-fill does it for me after the first letter. It would take more than that to keep me away!

Oh my goodness Brian et al…we are so sorry WP is giving you a bear of a time. We were thinking the filling out stuff was just “our” problem since we are on Blogger. Years ago the very same fillins as below were there but then you had an option to click save of something and we didn’t have to do it again. That part has vanished…any way the auto fill still words on the fillins below all we have to do is type a few letters in each and it auto fills Good luck wish we could help….but never… Read more »

Hmm, I type in my name ect and it’s there each time I come back. But I also have auto fill that allows me to automatically fill in my info by just typing the first letter of my first name and rest is filled automatically. So no problems here.

We’re WordPress but don’t have any suggestions. We wonder if the same thing happens on our blog as well.

I’ve noticed on other WP blogs I visit too that I have to retype my info every time. a double click and the info usually pops right up.

Hi Brian, we were finding it really hard/slow to comment on all blog platforms earlier in January but it seems to be better now!

Happy weekend and big hugs
