Inability To Stop Following Caused By Pop Up Window Size

Occasionally, we get a confused blogger who wants to stop Following a blog, but can't find the link.
When I clicked on Settings, there was no option to "unfollow."
The option should be there - it's there for all of my blogs, at least.

The Following Settings wizard uses a popup window, and the link "Stop following this site" is over to the right of the caption "Settings for (Name of Followed blog)". Many Bloggers keep their popup windows minimised somewhat. Depending upon default text size, the Following Settings window will be too narrow to show the "Stop following this site" link. Don't waste time looking for a horizontal scrollbar, even with the window minimised.


If you're trying to remove a blog from your Following neighbourhood, and you can't find the link, stretch the right side of the popup window. It's there, to the right.




It's there - just look for yourself.

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog.

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.
