Tip for Tuesday

I have a tip for those of you who use the Blogger platform for your blog.  Blogger recently made some changes that ended up causing a problem for a lot of us.  We weren't getting comments e-mailed to us anymore!  That meant that unless we went back to a post, we would never see a comment, and any older posts we would be very likely to miss comments on.  It also meant that we couldn't respond by e-mail to comments.
Last week I found out that there is a way to fix this problem.  My friend Terri from Your Friend from Florida e-mailed me the solution, and later in the week Anni from Hootin' Anni posted the solution as well.  So, I thought I would share it too, because I bet some of you have been as frustrated by this issue as I have been.

To fix it, go to Design, then click on settings.
Under settings click on Posts, comments and sharing.
Then in the middle of the screen you will scroll down to Comment Moderation.
There is a spot under that where it says e-mail comment moderation to - and there is a box under it.
If your e-mail is already in it, take it out and save it with no e-mail.
Then go back to the same spot, enter your e-mail again and save it again.
That should work, and you should start getting e-mails again.
Hope this helps some of you!

Thanks Mari....I have finally gotten my blog comments straightened out. I hate when Blog Spot changes things.

Thanks for the heads up........things change without notification, then I have to figure it out and straighten it out.

Well how about that! Like I said before, I had thought everyone had stopped commenting all at the same time, hahaha!! Until I actually checked for comments on my blog posts instead of email. Gotta try this. Thanks!!!

I use Blogger and have been hearing about this, but it completely goes over my head. :) I get some comments through emails, but always check my post for new comments. Gosh, I'm so dumb.

I switched to WP quite a few years ago. My posts etc. kept disappearing from Blogger.

Thanks, Mari. I will give it a try.

I think I must be about the only blogger who doesn't get comments emailed to me. I just check my comments in blogger, but I don't miss any as they are on moderation anyway.
