PSA on Problems with Liking/Commenting on Blogs

the word blog repeated around a globe

It seems like quite a few people haven’t been able to like or comment on people’s posts.  It may be an issue with your browser settings.

If you’re using Safari, go to “Preferences” in the “Safari” menu, then the “Privacy” tab. “Prevent cross-site tracking” needs to be unchecked.

In Chrome, go to “Preferences” under the “Chrome” menu, then scroll down to the “Privacy and security settings” and click on “Site Settings” then “Cookies and site data”. “Block third-party cookies” has to be turned off.

I’m not sure about Internet Explorer and other browsers, but it would probably still be an issue related to needing to enable cross-site tracking and/or third-party cookies.  These support pages on Microsoft’s site may help:

Hope this helps if you’ve been having issues!

  1. IT WORKED!!!! You are THE BEST!!! 😍🤗😘 Thanks for the help Ashley! I really appreciate it! Solves a super long running, frustrating problem for me! Awesomeburger!

  2. Hmmm, I have been experiencing this problem for the last week or so! Alas, I’ve just checked and “block third party cookies” is already disabled. Back to the drawing board 😉
