While I have mentioned this before, I’m going to again. For a long time now…. maybe since I moved here almost two years ago, I have an issue when I go to make a comment on sites that do not have a URL ending in wordpress.com
For the most part they are sites ending in .com only or the odd other personal URL.
I have extreme difficulty leaving a comment on these sites and sometimes I can’t at all. It’s because the WordPress toolbar at the top of the site does not display. I have been everywhere to try to solve the mystery, and it has been finally narrowed down to the communication between the desktop computer that my husband uses, and my laptop. My ISP did a lot of research and said it was not an issue they could deal with, but suggested that some technician had to do a ‘hard coding’. What that means I don’t know, and I did try to find out. The problem is in explaining what I don’t understand to the technical people who I have contact with online… ‘the geeksquad’. I tried to explain it to them but gave up…
I even read up on what I could find on the internet but it was too technical and I wouldn’t dare try to do anything that I didn’t understand.
This may seem a bit trifle to many, but it is so frustrating as more and more bloggers are upgrading to the .com sites. What I ‘try’ to do and sometimes works is to select several other blogs that have been written and keep clicking back and forth on them until at some point the magical ‘WordPress toolbar appears’. Then I know I can comment. This usually takes several minutes.
So, if anyone has a clue what that terminology ‘hard coding’ means I would soooooooooooooooo appreciate you explaining it to me in a way I can explain it to someone who can do it for me.
And… if you have a URL that is involved in this issue, you’ll maybe know why you don’t see as many comments from me…………… Diane
