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.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
