Argh

Just to let anyone who has switched to blogger beta (or whatever they call it) - I'm not ignoring you, but I can't seem to post to your sites. It doesn't recognize my blogger password and I can't figure out why. So if anyone has a clue and wants to share, feel free. I also tried to post as anonymous but it wouldn't let me do that either. Argh.

That is very strange. I know they are going to be converting all the older blogs over to the beta format in the near future. That may have something to do with it. Though it should have an impact on your leaving comments. Maybe there is something in their FAQ. If I have a few minutes later I'll see if I can find it.

I'm having the same problem.

I believe in order to post comments to beta blogger sites, you need a, you guessed it, beta blogger account. Or a Google account.

But I did think that it should give you the option to sign in with your regular Blogger account as well to comment, though it's not the default. Hmmm. Let me check.

Ok - I just went to Kathryn Smith's blog (yakkingwithkate.blogspot.com) and looked at the comments there. When I post to her comments I use my regular blogger account as usual. What happens when you try it?

When I try it, I put in my username and pswd for blogger and type in the word verification, hit enter and the pswd comes up emtpy saying it didn't work. I've been debating switching over to beta, I did that with the Project Linus blog I have but I don't really like the look of it. I dunno...

Check your cookies, Kelly. When your blog went to requiring the word verification, I had to enable cookies in order to post a comment.

I'll try again, signing out and signing in again. Very weird.

I had the same problem at Kate's blog this time. Guess they must be playing around with one of the two systems. I think where it says "You can also use your Blogger account" - the bold Blogger should be a hyperlink which lets you sign in. Stupid Blogger. Oh well, it's free....

I tried signing in with a google account but apparently I already have one...because I switched to beta on my hotmail. But when I used the password from that it STILL didn't work. Annoying.

This beta thing is very stupid.

I'm selecting "other" in the "choose an identity" box and even though it's an extra step it's easier in the long run.

I don't like the new Blogger. It never remembers me so I have to sign in to post. And you do have to sign in your google account.
Like now I can't get signed in.

Oh, I'm having a similar problem, then I keep re-entering my comment to no avail. Then when I go back, my comment has posted 5 times. Totally humiliating. I switched to beta but I kept Haloscan. Haven't had any problems.

It's driving me nuts, too. But I don't want to switch - I think I can't take my blog skin with me!
