Blogger Displaying In German

Various Bloggers have reported that various portions of the screens in Blogger are displaying their messages in German, regardless of their current language settings. Changing the language setting from the dashboard is reported to have mixed effectiveness, though trying that first makes sense.

This doesn't affect blog contents when published, just the scripts included in post editor, and the profile display.

In my case it seems to relate mostly to the profile section.

At one stage I even turned into an accountant!

All my blogs (using 3 different accounts / user names) are affected.

Yep, I'm getting it too.

I'm getting the German problem and my email copies of comments posted on my blog have gone really weird. They are full of html stuff and don't link through to the relevant post. These two problems started at exactly the same time.

Same here about both the German stuff AND the e-mails including loads of html.

Even the "Leave Your Comment" has its notes at the bottom in Germaan as I write this!

I hate German, get it off of me!!!

Please fix our blogger interface?
Hermes said…
I can't believe it's STILL not on the blogger status page !

The fix is to set your Dashboard language to "English - English" and leave it there, don't try to change it back to UK (at least not till Blogger fix this issue permanently!)

Yup, still got the problem - even after the fix and even after changing my language from English (UK) to English.

The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers.

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.
