Drop Back And Kick

Sometimes, you have to drop back and kick.

If you're reading this, please look in the sidebar for additional articles. If you can't find the bloody sidebar, which is why I'm doing this in the first place, please look at the very end of the page. Scroll all the way down. It's there, really!

If you'd get Firefox, you wouldn't have problems like the sidebar issue. I'll still have to struggle with them, but you won't have to see them.

I'll fix this real soon - I hope! Wish me luck!!

Update, 3/31 12:30: This is now fixed.

Twas an interesting bit of code causing the problem, and I have no idea how long it's been a problem.

Let's see what happens if we put the code in here:

Powered By Blogger


Get Firefox!

So all it was, was 2 little buttons. The first, Powered By Blogger, has been in there for a while, I have no idea how long. The second, I just added today, right after I added the Firefox link above. I think I will leave all of this, as a reminder to everybody to periodically check your blog, no matter what minor changes you may have made recently.

Who knows when I changed something that just upset the balance a little bit? Anybody out there can tell me how long my sidebar been appearing at the bottom of the page (and just in IE V6.x too)? And removing the buttons from the sidebar (moved to the bottom of the page) was the required solution.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
