those gremlins….

Hiya everyone. Could anyone still experiencing problems with the blog remind me in the comments of what they are exactly? I’ve found the most helpful man on earth in WordPress Support so I want to let him know what gremlins are still bugging us!

Thank you!

    I am having a funny thing happen on my droid. This blog is the only one it happens to. When I go to read the latest thread it won’t allow me to scroll down to the comments. I can on all the other threads. Just the latest. I am on my way to a class to learn more about my smart phone. So I’ll see if it is part of the phone.

    Thanks Chips for all you are doing.

    Sometimes I feel like I’m talking to myself:) If you have put up a new thread, when I refresh the page it doesn’t always automatically show that. I have to come back to TOD sometime later, and lo and behold…I see that you have put up 3 new threads! I WAS talking to myself!

    Hey Chips, nice to see you, good morning.

    I can’t post comments in here if I use Explorer, I have to switch to Firefox.

      Hiya ChristiMtl, thanks for that – there’s a definite issue alright with using Explorer on WordPress sites, I’ll check with the Support guy to see if there’s been any fix on that front. I’ll just wait til later so I can gather up a list of gremlins and then I’ll contact him. Thanks again.

    Good morning Chips. I have no problems! πŸ™‚

      Excellent Jackie! I’m sure I’ve asked you before, but could you remind me of what browser you’re using? Is it Firefox? That seems to be the one that causes fewest problems. Thanks Jackie πŸ˜‰

    I am on Firefox too and don’t have any problems. I love the gremlin though.

    Hi there. I often use my iPhone to surf your blog. Just for the past couple of days, the mobile site doesn’t always load the comments section fully. Selecting full view removes this problem but it’s a little slower. I’m using Safari.

    Good morning Chips. It’s all good here on the shores of Lake Michigan.

    Good morning, Chips. Most of the problems have been fixed and it works beautifully. The only problem I was having was every now and then when you would post a new video, it would crash Safari. But I just upgraded to the new Safari 5.1 a couple of days ago and all seems to be A-OK for now so hopefully that was an Apple Adobe issue. I’ll let you know if that changes.

    Thanks for asking!! And I’m excited for you to find a great WP guy!!

    I’m relatively new here, but I’ll make a small report. I use Firefox and things look fine from this end. I also use Google Reader to put up new blog posts from my hundreds of blogs. Every time you put up a new post here, it appears in my Reader……so I’ve been able to keep up today, for instance. If I get to a new thread and refresh it in my Firefox by hitting F5, I get all the comments.

    So you’ll be happy to know that I have NO gremlins at all. πŸ™‚

    Oh, and I’ve signed in with the WordPress choice.

    Hey Chips. I use Firefox and my iPhone. No problems.

    Hey Chips I cannot see what I am typing clearly! The background of the page is black and the writing is in dark grey making it difficult to see clearly. However when the comment is posted it is seen clearly. I already wear glasses so solving this problem will be terrific ;). Thanks for your concern :)!

      Morning Chips! For the last couple of days I’ve been having this exact problem. I can’t see what I’m typing unless I put my eyes right up to the screen, and even then it’s a challenge. In addition, the bottom portion of the comment section which used to show my gravatar and other identification info is blank and won’t accept any typing. Yet, when I posted yesterday my ID showed up – don’t know yet if it will today.

      ‘Long time no see. πŸ˜‰ Hope you’re having a productive and enjoyable day!

        “β€˜Long time no see. Hope you’re having a productive and enjoyable day!”
        If you were referring to me..I am blessed busy but blessed! God has been good to me and for that I must be grateful. Hope all is wonderful on your end my fellow TODer πŸ™‚

        BDW Chips it’s alot clearer now. THANK YOU AND YOUR HELPER SOOOOOO MUCH! πŸ™‚ God bless.

      This is my problem too. Unless I post using Google chrome. Then I have to remember to type in my email address and username or I will show up as anonymous. (delayed posting)

    Good morning Chip! I have an issue when trying to log on to word press at the bottom of the page using internet explorer. I click on the tab but it doesn’t display the username and password for me to type the info in. I have to go to the wordpress website, log in there and load the blog’s page…I don’t have that issue with firefox…It’s ok, I use firefox but I’m just posting it here in case somebody else has the sane issue…
    Thanks again for all your help!

      Thank you Streetsmart! Will add that to the list of Gremlins ….. which is worryingly long πŸ˜• Hopefully we can get them all fixed. Thanks again πŸ˜‰

    In Firefox I have no problems, but in Internet Explorer I can’t comment at all. The entire comment area is black and when I try to click in the comment box nothing happens.

    Hellooooo Chipsticks! Good to “see” you! You have been truly truly missed πŸ˜€

    I use Firefox and have not experienced any problems in a long long time. However, there does appear to be Gremlins in yesterday’s Wisconsin ballot counting. Can your Tech guy clean them out? πŸ™‚

  17. August 10, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Hey! I can now read my entry while typing and my gravatar is back! πŸ˜† πŸ˜† You’d better hang tight to that ‘most helpful man on earth in WordPress Support’, Chips. Don’t let him slip away. πŸ˜‰

    Hi Chips, one of my posts wouldn’t post, kept getting duplicate post message. However, it wasn’t a duplicate and when I tried to start over with the same post and slightly change the words, I got two posts. Thanks as always. You’re the best!

    Hi Chips, For about a month or so, I haven’t been able to see what I’m typing. The comment section is black. I don’t know what I’ve typed or whether it’s correct until I post. Hi Chips, I still can’

    See, I don’t know where that second Hi Chips came from. I think I started over again and could see how much I’d erased.

    Chipsticks, my droid is working better on the problem I first stated. Now I realize there is another problem. On all other blogs I comment on my information is already on my post. But on this blog I have to rewrite it each time on my droid. I am not sure if that is my phones problem or if it is with wordpress. The phone people didn’t know why it wasn’t working.
