New AutoSave Function In Post Editor May Be Causing Problems

Blogger now has an AutoSave function, which will hopefully cut down on the well known pink warning "Could not connect ...", caused by cookies involved in saving our posts automatically. AutoSave works automatically, for all new or draft posts.


See the new button? It changes from "Save Now" to "Saved" periodically.



But some Bloggers are now having problems with Post Editor. Some problems appear similar to the recent Singnet issue, but the Bloggers involved have explicitly stated that they are not connecting from Southeast Asia. Users of Mac and Safari seem to be having the most problems.

Other Bloggers report that Reader Comments may be disabled for some posts. If you're creating a new post, and you like having your readers comment on your posts, click on "Post Options" below the main post editor window, and make sure that Reader Comments are Enabled.


Known Issues (being actively investigated):
  • Publishing problems in Safari (The Save Now, Preview and Add Image buttons don't respond).
  • Comments get disabled.
  • Possible publishing problems and comment link problems when you use the back button in the post editor.
  • Extremely slow typing - you can type, but the text doesn't show up in the browser window for many seconds.



Initial Diagnostics:


Possible Mitigation Techniques:


When reporting the problem:
  • What operating system, and what browser, is this a problem on?
  • What operating system, and what browser (if any), is this not a problem on?



(Update 2007/06): It is possible to disable AutoSave, when composing your posts.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger . My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead? It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing . This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
