The Navbar And The Flag Blog Button

Ever played with a hand grenade, or seen it done in a movie? The scene in Stripes, where Capt Stillman accidentally pulls out the pin on one, is a classic.

If you pull out the pin, you better have somewhere clear to throw it, and quickly. If you let go of the handle, for even a second, and the fuse lights, you better act fast.

Some folks play with the "Flag Blog" button on the Navbar, and think they've just lit a fuse. Fortunately, it's a fuse that you can extinguish easily.

The button is a toggle.
  • Click once, turns on.
  • Click again, turns off.
  • Click again, turns on.
If you click it an even number of times, from the same computer and same browser, while logged in to the same account and viewing the same blog, you're OK. No harm.

(Note): You may find it necessary to clear your cache, to ensure an up to date view of the flag.

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.

Free Domain Registration By "UNONIC" Is Fraudulent

Blogger blog owners, like everybody else, like to save money.

Some blog owners prefer to save money when registering a custom domain, for their blogs. We've seen several free domain registration services, providing what is claimed to be a two level Top Level Domain "co.xx" (where "xx" == various country codes).

The latest in this ongoing story appears to be "net.tf" - and 13 other "top level domains".There is also an additional free service offering third-level .tf domains, under the name United Names Organisation. They occupy 14 second-level domains, including .eu.tf, .us.tf, .net.tf, and .edu.tf. They are run by the same company as smartdots.com, and are given away as URL redirections.
