This post is just a technical query. I switched the commenting function here, from requiring readers to go to a separate, white page to fill out a commenting box, to providing the box right at the bottom of each post.
I thought this other way would make it easier to comment (especially if readers land directly on separate posts, rather than the main page), and also easier to refer to the post itself while commenting, because it still appears in its original form above the comments. I also like how the blog's appearance is maintained while commenting, rather than having it replaced by a blank whiteness (come to think of it, maybe that's appropriate).
However, several commenters have pointed out that they can no longer cut-and-paste into the comment box in this new format. Oddly enough, I can do that, whether I'm signed into Blogger or not (and whether I try it in Firefox or Explorer).
Any suggestions for how to get cut-and-paste working for everyone?
If anyone knows of a quick, easy way to get cut-and-paste working in this new format, I could write a description of that above the comment box.
Is the old, go-to-this-new-blank-page-to-comment system better? Do you think I should I just switch back to that way, so everyone can easily cut-and-paste again?
