Along with my lost post last week, which I put down to European Union notice, which is probably not true, last Friday, the next morning, there were no comments on my posts. Nobody was loving me at all, not one. Even the evil spammer Jorbeth was absent. Well, that was as far as I knew.
Comments were still being made, but I was not receiving emails that a comment had been made. I know well enough that something like this is nothing I have done and just wait for it to be corrected, nevertheless, I did check my blog settings and all appeared to be well.
As an aside from the problem, today I discovered why I don't receive emails when River or Grace comment. It is because they use Yahoo email addresses. Apparently Blogger hates Yahoo email and does allow it into its system. There are one or two other people who comment on my blog and I don't receive emails when they do so. It is only really a problem when a regular reader gets behind reading my blog and comments on a post perhaps two or three days old. I may miss it then.
Ok, back to the point, no emails when someone comments. Many in a forum do think it is related to the European Union Notice. While this below does not fix the problem, it is a work around for you if you are having the same problem. Here was a helpful response I received from Darnell Knauss on the forum.
I'm not sure if this will be permanent or temporary, but a reader to my blog discovered the change in the comment box itself that "fixes" this problem. Immediately after you publish your post, leave YOURSELF a comment. You will see the sign in options have changed and there is now a box to check that allows delivery of comments to our email boxes! Just check the box, publish your comment and all comments to your blog post after that will come to your inbox as before. It's infuriating that Blogger didn't tell us this, but there you go!
