Feed Gadgets Not Displaying Content

Last week, we (some of us) suffered through a feed problem, with blogs published externally using FTP. Over the weekend, we started seeing a new problem with feeds.

Look at the sidebar in this blog, and at "Blogger Status" and "Known Issues for Blogger". Both of those sections are feed gadgets. 1/2 hour ago, the latter section "Known Issues for Blogger" looked as the former "Blogger Status". In an effort to diagnose the problem, I removed and re added the feed gadget for "Known Issues for Blogger", and now have what you see.

If you are seeing either symptom in a feed gadget, whether the gadget is blank, or shows "Loading...", or shows a subject index which contains no detail and no clickable links, please help us (and yourself) out, with details.
  • What's the blog URL?
  • What's the title on the feed gadget, as seen in the blog?
  • What's the feed URL?
  • Is this a redirected feed (FeedBurner et al), if so, what's the redirected feed URL?
  • When did you last update the feed gadget?
  • When was the latest post in the blog?
  • Is this your blog, if so, did you try removing and readding the feed gadget?

Hey Chuck,

I do not use a feed gadget but, I too have a nonfunctioning feed gadget. To answer some of your questions... it's a recent posts gadget on my site www.happinesshelp.org. After clicking edit in the widget from the layout screen, the widget window opens and at the top says "configure feed" yet the rest of the window is blank without the ability to do anything in the window. If you want a sreenshot, give me your email address & I'll send one to you.

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.
