I read a great article on Dengarden today and when I went to comment I noticed I had to sign in. So I did. That sent me back to the home page of the site rather than allow me to comment. Since I didn't remember the title of the article I had to start again from scratch at the author's profile, scan their carousel and find the hub.
On some of the other sites, signing in allows you to continue on the article and leave your comment.
I just posted a comment on one of the articles on Dengarden to test and it seems to be working fine here. Are you still having issues commenting?
I get that quite often. If I'm reading the article via a notification in my inbox, I sign in as instructed. If I still see the prompt when I go back to the article, I close the tab and re-enter via the link in my email. Scroll down to the bottom and then I'm in. It's a pain, but it's an easy work-around, unless you're hub hopping or reading from someone's profile page.
I hope HP fixes the problem. It seems to happen to me more times than not.
I agree, this seems to be an issue with just the niche sites. Articles in Hubs don't require you to sign in (again). It's also a problem for the person who is the author. To reply to a comment, you need to re-log in.
It's a pain.
I agree. I am suffering with this too.
I've noticed this, also-- even as the author. The banner line shows my name (because I am logged in) but below, where I want to comment, it says I need to sign in.
I thought I was the only one facing this problem. Thanks PegCole17 for bringing this issue under notice.
Thanks, everyone, for clarifying and reporting. I'll check with Engineering about this.
Yes, it happens on other niche sites as well. It appears to be a bug. On some pages, it has no problem knowing who I was, but on other pages, it force you to sign in...
It has also happened to me, and I think it discourages people from commenting -- especially if they don't belong to HubPages. Does it help to go to your account and try to answer all comments from the comments tab?

Try as I might, I can't respond to any comments in my hubs. I can add a new comment, but I can't directly reply to comments. I sign out and then sign back in, both on HP and the niche sites.How can I interact with my readers if I can't respond?

Only the best Hubs on HubPages are being moved to niches, so everything on the niche sites is spam free and trash free. There are no pieces written in broken English or written in ways that appear to be spun. Everything that's low quality is left behind. Even the ads are high-quality on the niche...

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

Does having many hubs count much to gaining more income in HP? I wonder how some hubbers have less than 50 hubs yet are deriving a good amount of revenue from good traffic numbers, while other hubbers have hundreds of articles and are just doing so-so income. I've noticed that updating and...

I have an article that an editor has made substantial changes too. Including adding a bio that they wrote themselves. I have not seen an edit this bad in quite some time on one of my articles, and I do not want to go through the whole article and rewrite half of it. I've already spent countless...

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and informative comments. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...
