Comment Section Malfunction

Monday, December 4, 2017


I've been getting the emails and the messages that we've hit the 200 mark in the comment section, which means further comments won't load. I know it is very frustrating. Unfortunately, it is a problem that Blogger has had for a while, and there isn't much I can do about it. Disabling the thread feature would fix it (I hear), but that's just messy and makes it difficult to follow different conversations. Ultimately, despite the trouble it can be to get used to at first, I should probably switch us to a 3rd party platform. I will likely do that sometime this month. Until then...bear with me!

  1. It's worth the hassle to be able to follow a thread.

    1. I loathe Disqus. Most of us like to remain Anon.

    2. It seems to me that Disqus often takes forever to load comments also.

    3. I don't like Disqus either. It's hard to keep a thread going when it takes too long to load.

    4. It does and the comment can move up or down in the thread depending on popularity which can be confusing.

  5. I agree with others; that is a great pic, Jane! It made me smile :)

  6. Do you juggle all those images in your brain and think," That one would be great for what I want to say." Are they squirreled away in computer files with labels such as : joy, disgust, regret...?
    A look book. Photographic memory.
    I agree--perfect choice, as usual.
    I also agree with Robin about following threads. We need to start tapering our comments before the 200 mark and wind up discussions and just stop commenting so no one needs to worry about missing anything.
    I can't comment when a thread is live and Jane is editing live. I finally gave up commenting on a thread in the HM interview post. I happened to check back yesterday and found I could finally comment. I gave a lot of thought and time writing it. After I posted it, I realised that comment section was already over 200 and no one would see it.I know that is a terrible loss to my fellow commenters. Ha!
    I think a short post (as above) put up at or before the 200 mark as a sort of "continued" place might work with that and would save the threads and maybe some detail mongering for Jane. anon1

    Maybe we could make our posts shorter. Love this photo of William at Wimbledon.

    1. It's not the length of the posts it's the number of them. It hits 200 and that's it. Silly Blogger doesn't realize that a blog as popular as this one gets a greater number of posts.

  9. Agree a perfect photo.

  10. Jane, I know this is a band aid instead of a solution and probably would be a pain for you but what if you just open up another post once we reach 190 comments or so and the conversation could continue there. Like a continuation post. Part two of comnents.

  11. HaHA. As I suspected. Nobody read my post @8:53 this morning. Last sentence. I feel invisible.
    I'll have to think about that for awhile. :+) anon1

The rules for commenting are simple: be polite. Please be respectful of the BRF/Middletons, even in criticism; please be respectful of your fellow readers, even in disagreement. Vulgarity will disqualify a comment.

Debate is welcome, direct and personal insults are not. Topics we tend to avoid here: "does Kate work enough?" and "Is Kate too skinny?" Everything is subject to approval.

I (Jane Barr) moderate all comments. If a comment is live, I approved it. If you find something offensive, or think my approval was an error, please email me at princesskateblog(at)gmail.com.

At times, an acceptable comment just goes missing. If you think your comment should have been approved, but it did not show up within five hours, again, pop an email to the above address.

Happy chatting!
