I’ve received a few complaints from readers who are having difficulty posting a comment on this blog. There appears to be a problem when trying to paste text into the comment box. Typing the text directly works fine, but when using the copy / paste function, the ‘paste’ option is not always available.
To solve this annoyance, simply place your mouse pointer in the comment box and right click on the mouse. A menu will pop up. Open ‘This Frame’ in a ‘New Window’ or a ‘New Tab’…, and you should be able to paste your text.
Another annoying error sometimes occurs when comments are too long. Your screen will show the following message, creating the impression that your comment was not posted, when in fact it was.
DESPITE THIS ERROR MESSAGE, THE COMMENT DOES GET POSTED.
(There is thus no need to re-submit your message.)
