FTP Publishing - October 2009

This month, we have several reports from bloggers who, for one reason or another, have changed the FTP username and / or password on the domain host server, and then updated the username / password in their Blogger FTP settings. Much to their dismay, when attempting to publish their blog, they find the old username / password being sent to the remote server.
I have verified it's saving my new username in the publishing settings and yes, I'm seeing the error based on the posting status. I get the following ...
FTP login failed (server:, username: myoldusername, reason: 530 User myoldusername cannot log in. )

Are you seeing this behaviour, when trying to publish your blog?
  • What is the blog URL?
  • What is the FTP server setting?
  • When did you make the setting change?
  • Did you verify the problem, by examining the host server activity logs?

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.
