A Post Editor For Virginia USA

Recently, we have been reading comments from a few blog owners, who do not appreciate the latest version of the Post Editor, Some blog owners are so unhappy that they want Blogger to retain the old Post Editor, so they can avoid the changes indefinitely.

At first glance, this may seem like a reasonable idea - why not keep the old version indefinitely, to accommodate those who cannot move forward?. Unfortunately, that strategy is not really practical. As Blogger releases new features to Blogger, having two versions of Post Editor will require some features that have to be developed in two aliases, each alias being compatible with a different version of post editor.

Eventually, the next new version of post editor will be developed. Maintaining two old versions of post editor, or abruptly discontinuing the oldest version, would be an immediate necessity then. Neither strategy will really serve the folks who, right now, see the need to keep using the old version.

The answer here, folks, is that everybody needs to move forward, and start using the new version, sometime in the near future. As you move forward, you can help identify and report the problems found, so Blogger can fix the problems. To encourage reporting of problems, Blogger has developed an Issue Reporting Form, where you can report any issues found with the new (2010) Post Editor.

As you are able, move forward - and when you find a problem, or identify a feature that you don't like, report what you don't like. The sooner that you move forward, and report the problems that you discover, the sooner that your problems will be considered - and the more likely that your problems will be seriously considered ahead of the others who move forward later.

Help Blogger make the new post editor a good product. Move forward.

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.
