Blogger is messing us about again. Recent changes to the comment facility has resulted in the disappearance of the ability to subscribe to a comment thread if you have your comment settings set to pop up window. However, it is still there if you set your comments to "embedded beneath post."

I strongly suggest that we all change our settings to embedded. Otherwise there will be no conversations on our blogs anymore and a drastic reduction in visits.

Thanks to Grandmère Mimi for sussing this one out for us.



  1. Thanks for the public service announcement. I would never have known about this. Every time I open my blogger account these days I bumble around in confusion for at least 5 minutes.

  2. No, no, no, no, NO!!!! >:-(

    When you make this change, you take away the pop-up comment thread!

    (I’ve already told Mimi how cross I am about *her* change)

    I neither know, nor frankly care, about what prompted you to make this change.

    All I know, is if you want *me* as a happy, frequent commenter, you’ll bring back pop-up comment threads.

  3. Oh, I know what you mean, JCF. I like the pop-up comments so much better myself. But BLOGGER (please blame Blogger) took away our ability to be notified of follow up comments. This change is the only way to get the notification back.

    I know. Bummer.

  4. I will now be posting as anonymous and signing my name at the bottom of the post. I completely wiped out my Blogger account and profile. I no longer sign into Google. I no longer check my GMail. I no longer sign into YouTube. When Google told me I could not opt out of their new non-privacy privacy policy I thought, “Just watch me, Bubbas!”
