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?

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...

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?

Is it common knowledge that Africa is a country? Just read an article on Pairedlife by someone who just ranted on the HP forums about a certain big company. It's sad to see some good work by reputed hubbers get snipped and edited when global facts are changed and accepted. What do I do about this?...

The waiting period for submitting an article to a niche site is every two weeks and you can only submit just one article each time. Given that there are several niche sites and that many of us write for different genres, has there ever been a discussion about the option to submit ONLY ONE...
