PMSing, Annoyances, & New Layout

I've spent the entire afternoon trying to get the embedded comment form to work again on my blog but it seems to hate me, and the codes won't work, so I wonder if something's up. Is anyone with a customized layout having issues? I loooove this layout but GAH, I'll switch back to the old one in one second if I can't get it working properly.

In other news, I wasted the entire afternoon. While I could've been reading Wintergirls. Where is the sanity???

ETA: Shall work on getting my sidebar back tomorrow. For tonight, I've just about had it.

You have to delete your widgets, add the comment box thing, then add your widgets (that's what Blogger says to do)

Steph said...

ALL of my widgets?

Carol(ina) said...

yup. (it's sucks, I know) That's why I didn't add that to my blog.

Steph said...

THAT IS CRAP.

Allow to me to try it...

Steph said...

Carol - not working! :(

"The embedded comment form works on both Classic and Layouts templates, though if you’re using a heavily-customized Layouts template you may need to reset your widget templates before the embedded comment form will appear."

Steph said...

I've no doubt you're right (and consequently Blogger too) but this layout won't cooperate. Either the embedded box shows up and the other comments don't or the other comments do and the comment box doesn't. So whichever the situation, it's not exactly win/win for me. >.<

Hmm... what if you try with another layout? Did you find another one that you really liked? Maybe it'll work on that one.

Steph said...

Yup, tried. Same thing. I'm thinking it's a bug? Or maybe I'm just stupid. Could be.

Carol(ina) said...

Nah, you're not stupid. I mean,you aced you exams.:D

I bet it's just a bug who wants to mess with you. Or blogger needs the embedded comment box.

I like this way of commenting better anyway. It doesn't take two tries for the comments to go through this way!

ALEXA YOUNG said...

Hey! Cool! We're on the same cycle. Missed you, love you, mean it. ;-) XOXOXO

Daniel said...

i like the new design, it's very appealing.

Alea said...

Yeah, why did it always take two tries, that's so strange!

Steph said...

It did??? Well I suppose I should wait a while before trying to install it again, then. Let the Blogger people get their act together.

AND THEN FORCE THEM TO GET THIS SHIT WORKING WITH A PITCHFORK.

Y'know. I'm such a sweet-loving girl.

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
