Blogger Killed My Dog

Ok, maybe not my dog, but they have done in my comments. I switched over to Blogger Beta the other night and, in the tradition of beta products, it is buggy. Once I moved over the comments went down and I haven't been able to figure out how to repair them as of yet. Any suggestions on template tweaks or how to get Blogger customer service to respond will be much appreaciated.

Update: Commenting has returned, no thanks to Blogger but to the wonderful help of MC of Culture kills... He is not only a clever writer but a wonderful person whom I have never met who took the time to help me figure out how to modify my template to get it working again after the beta "improvements." Please help me thank him by clicking madly on his site. I will attempt to add the previous comments that were mailed to me before the system gave up completely.

  3. I just feel glad you didn't have to start over from scratch on the template front.

  5. My advice: wait some more, wouldn't you agree Jeremy?

  6. Yeah, I'd say wait until you have to. If you have a non-Blogger template it may mess something up (as it did to my comments) and the changes at Beta don't seem to radical to me. The dashboard interface has more options and pages publish quicker but those have been the only major changes I've noted. Maybe there would be more differences if I redesigned my template, but I'm not up to that right now.

  7. If you take one of their "layouts", you get to categorize your entries within Blogger but you lose your HTML interface(at this point in the beta at least), so it is a bad trade-off at this point.
