There Go The Comments

I'm very sad. I changed my blogger template and lost my comments. It now looks like I have nary a blog-friend. :(

Update: My blogroll is gone, too. I still have Bloglines, but I'm putting the new blogs in (as you, my dear blog-writing friends, update them) through Blogger.

13 comments:

  1. I just read your comment on my blog so I'll return the favor. Sorry this happened to you.

  2. Now I am exceedingly hesitant to switch to Blogger Beta!

  3. Awwww ... and just after I had (finally) left a comment. Sorry you've lost the comments and blogroll. Boo hoo.

  4. Thanks for your responses. Actually I should be able to install Haloscan again (as well as Bloglines) ... I just need to sit down and make sure I put everything into the template correctly. I tried to upload my old template and it wouldn't let me.

    There are actually some aspects of the new Blogger (it's no longer Blogger Beta) that I like ... and if Blogger comments and blogrolls are better, then I'm willing to switch. I just wish I had more of a clear choice in the matter!

  6. I was going to leave a comment about your missing comments. However, when I opened this comment box, I noticed that the word that I have to type for "word verification" to post this comment is "rumcj" and it made me lose my train of thought. How is "rumcj" a word? How do you pronounce it? What does it mean? Why don't they call it "random string of letters verification" instead?

  7. Miz, I had "yztrvr" as a word, which I like to believe is a kind of Czech delicacy.

    I like the new format Waterfall, although I am sorry about your lost comments. Don't worry, people still love you even though it doesn't look like they say it out loud.

  8. My special word from my dad's computer tonight is "mvhvvjnbj." Or maybe it's "mvhwjnbj." Ann odd word, though I must admit that it contains every letter in my initials.

  9. I believe it's Haloscan that causes the problem, believe it or not. I made a test blog and loaded Haloscan and presto! all the comments disappeared. They even have a warning about it, three or four menus down. Blogger's comments aren't as pretty but they don't seem to float away at least. Anyway, my suggestion is to make a dummy/copy before loading Haloscan again.

  10. Nooooo! That's so sad. But I'm still here.

  11. I tried updating my template today, too. I tried re-installing Haloscan comments, but the directions just didn't seem to jive with what I had in front of me.

    The Haloscan site says that soon they will have auto install for the new Blogger. I chickened out and went back to the old template.
