A few days ago I began noticing oddities while using WordPress. I thought it was just me, but several other people noted experiencing one of the same issues.
Here’s what I have noted:
- When leaving a comment, I am randomly shifted to a different blog than I was originally replying to. It happened only a few times so I did not pay it much attention. Then I had a fellow blogger leave a comment on my blog. The problem was that the comment was intended for a blog other than mine. (This happened to a very experienced blogger.) In the comments we exchanged about it, a couple of other bloggers piped in and said they had experienced the same thing.
- When leaving comments on a blog, I keep getting a warning asking me if I really want to leave without finishing what I was typing. This in the middle of the comment – I was not trying to leave the page. The only resolution is to refresh the page and lose the comment I was typing. (I got smart enough to copy the comment before leaving the page so I would not be required to retype the whole thing.)
Both of these things ‘seem’ to happen while in WordPress Reader. But I cannot say if it only happens in Reader.
If you have experienced this, please leave a comment below. If this is a widespread problem we need details so it can be reported.
