Problems Uploading Pictures? Try This Process

In my work as a network troubleshooter, I work on many problems similar to this photo upload problems situation. We have:

  • Multiple people.
  • Multiple computers, all different.
  • Different browsers used.
  • Clearing cookies.
  • Some work in Compose mode, others Edit Html.
  • Incanting various runes and spells, while they work.

and some are successful in uploading photos, others not. WTF?

In my professional opinion (FWTW), this indicates at least two separate problems, in various combinations, causing variant symptoms.

Maybe we have a breakthru. In Google - Blogger Help - Publishing, we have pictures by trial and error... maybe help?, by Theodor.

By trial and error I found that when starting a posting by first
- giving some enters
- upload allt the pictures
- AFTER THAT adding my texts
has been working most of the times.


That agrees with MY experiences anyway. This is how I make a post with pictures.

  1. I look at all of my pictures.
  2. Sort them in the right sequence.
  3. Upload in reverse sequence. The upload process always puts each new picture on top of the previously uploaded picture.
  4. Go thru the code, insert breaks, captions, and other punctuation.
  5. Make one last look at the post as a whole.
  6. Publish Post.

If you try to add pictures to an existing post, and run into problems, start a new post. You can always add links between the two posts.

I'll be very surprised if, following this procedure, everybody's problems were to completely vanish. But I'll bet some will see an improvement. It may be possible to identify the other problems, if we can solve ONE problem. I think that this is a start in the right direction.

Patience, persistence, and publicity.

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.
