I Hate Google+

Apologies if you have attempted to comment on my blog over the last week and have been unsuccessful. I briefly enabled Google+ Comments until I realised that it meant that only visitors with Google+ would be able to comment. I then attempted to disable Google+ Comments and cocked it up, leaving the Blog in some Kafkaesque limbo where Google+ was disabled but still controlling my Comments. I've just managed to sort it out, but I think it means that if you do have Google+ and have commented on my blog your comment has now been lost. Normal programming should now have resumed. A pox on Google+. I suggest the read the fine print more carefully than I did should you be considering linking your blog to it.

  1. Yes, I dent like the full monty integration either, but found that adding Google+ but keeping the comments section as t was it a good half way point

    1. Hi John,

      It took me a week, but I got some good advice and it worked:

  4. I was caught by the same issue. I had a hard time finding comments after enabling it. I too reverted back as quickly as I could.

  6. I wondered why it was not working. Really wanted to say that the T 26s looked great. I am trying to track down just 3 for my self rather than the whole company you have, looks like PSC and a five pack might be in order.

    Battle group barbarossa here we come.
