Another Day, Another Blogger Script Update

So I was happily updating this blog, The Real Blogger Status. I had just finished a labourious update to Image Test, and hit Publish. But instead of the old, familiar
Your blog post published successfully!
I got a surprise.




What?? Why Now???


Time to login again?

OK OK


So I logged in again, and eventually, the post seems to have published.

Blogger is many things, but seldom boring. It looks like they just pushed another script update. For some, this may mean a cache and cookies clearing exercise.

And after you clear cache and cookies, check browser settings and security on your computer. In particular, make sure that "*.blogger.com", not just "www.blogger.com", is a trusted web site. And finally, update your bookmarks, and make sure that you login to Blogger properly.

Now Blogger makes changes to its code frequently, and too often causes problems when they do this. Sometimes, they admit to causing problems.

And sometimes, you can cause your own problems. Besides the many settings on your computer (discussed above), you need to be aware of which script you're using, for instance, when editing a post.

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.
