Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Solving Tech Puzzles One Paw At a Time

thankful thursday brian 08302018Welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we are sure happy to see you today.  It sure it hard to believe, but this is the last Thankful Thursday Blog Hop for August.  Dang, we’re moving into September really soon, where does the time go?  Anyways, we sure do look forward to reading about all of the things you are thankful for and we sure love it when we see new blogger pals hopping in to join us!

Today I’m thankful for solving a tech puzzle, with the Dad’s help of course.  My Dad likes to say that he has been involved with information technology since way back when they just had information and no technology to go along with it.  So, it’s pretty frustrating to the Dad, and me, when something simple like leaving comments on blogs doesn’t work.  We’ve had an issue with about a dozen WordPress blogs.  No matter what we did the comments didn’t stick.

Well, we found something that works for us and maybe it will work for you too if you are having the same problem.  Here’s what we do, when we get to a comment box on a WordPress blog you may or may not see your login information below the comment box, as if it’s already filled out.  We click on the link that says “change” and sometimes it is blank and sometimes it is filled out with our email address, name and URL.  Whether it is completed or not, we fill it in again and click on Submit Comment.  Dang, it works just about every single time for us.

So, I’m really thankful to solve this little tech puzzle because I don’t like my friends to think I am ignoring their fabulous blogs.  What are you thankful for today?  Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    That is a very useful tip Brian. We have encountered problems commenting on other blogs at times too.
    Sometimes when we go back later in the day, we can comment no problem. Huh

    Good for your Dad figuring that mystery out! I know that since we kept my Mom’s google account as our “commenting voice” we’ve been able to comment on BlogSpot blogs without filling out the TEST to pick cars or sidewalks, etc. That’s made it a lot quicker for us to visit everyone and comment!! Wonder why things have to be so complicated in the blogosphere sometimes don’t you? Glad you’re all set now with WP blogs since WE are one of those!!!!!!

    Hugs, Teddy

    We have one WP blog where we can’t comment. We tried several things but nothing worked. Finally we opened it in another browser and bam! We can comment there. Frustrating.

  5. That's Purrfect

    You’d think it would be something WordPress would fix. At present it doesn’t encourage anyone to have a WordPress blog if commenting is difficult. But I’m so glad “techy dad” has found a workaround!

    Your comment blog is no problem for me, and my data is always profiled, but I get annoyed with other WP blogs when I have to type my info in all the time, Thanks for sharing dads findings.

    Your comment blog is no problem for me, and my data is always prefilled, but I get annoyed with other WP blogs when I have to type my info in all the time, Thanks for sharing dads findings.

    BTW-That little buggy (top right)thing after I hit “post comment” must be a scan ?? , as that takes forever to take my comment though.

    Brian we loved this line
    “when they just had information and no technology” sometimes we aren’t sure they have the technology YET!!

    I have a hard time again with many WP blog. . It just wouldn’t stick onto the page no matter how many times mom and I tried. We keep trying. I am Blogspot but my comments rarely work on WP blogs. Yours always works. I have to go around the mulberry bush to attempt to use my old WP blog to make a comment on WP blogs. OK. I’ll quit now. 🙂

    The Hubby knows all about electronic stuff, but does he have a computer, use the internet, or surf the web?!? NOPE! Just little ol’ me plowing through. Glad your dad has got some savvy skills, Brian!

  11. Purrseidon

    I discovered that i often need to put https:// in front of my URL address to get comments to ‘stick’.
    Brian, dear furiend, thank you for hosting this hop and I hope you and yours are having a purrfect week.

    Thanks for the tip. Sometimes my comments seems to disappear forever too. Good to know.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties and my very best to the peeps. ♥

    Across the purple sky, all the birds are leaving
    But how can they know it’s time for them to go?
    Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
    I have no thought of time
    For who knows where the time goes?
    Who knows where the time goes?

    Glad you solved the puzzle!

    There definitely seems to be some weird stuff going on with a lot of blogs and commenting lately. While I’ve been able to comment, there are a lot that I have to fill out my information on every single time, when it used to just come up automatically. It’s just annoying, but at least we can comment.
    Good job by your Dad to find a way around your issue!

  15. The OP Pack

    Thanks for the tip. We can never figure out why we have to keep entering our info on some of the blogs where we have checked off the box that says to remember the info. Very strange. But it only takes a little bit of time to re-enter the info. It is worth it to visit our pals.

    Mom is happy/thankful the excavator has shown up; though, no work has started. She says she is going to remain skeptical until there is more than a hole in the ground and piles of dirt, neither of which we have yet! It’s the Blogspot comments we have trouble leaving. We will get half way through writing it, and it just disappears. Have you had that problem?

    We’re glad to read you guys got your techie issues figured out. Myy Goodness sometimes even the simplest of things just become a complete frustration. Mom and I so understand. (This week we’ll be thankful for the AC guy to get her and replace the thermostat here @ our house. Yups sometimes it’s just the simplest of things…

  19. Mickeys Musings

    Whoa! I hate the WP blogs where I have to type my info over and over. I’m thankful your blog isn’t like that. TW did put my info into Chrome’s autofill which is making it much easier.
