Blogger Displaying In German

Various Bloggers have reported that various portions of the screens in Blogger are displaying their messages in German, regardless of their current language settings. Changing the language setting from the dashboard is reported to have mixed effectiveness, though trying that first makes sense.

This doesn't affect blog contents when published, just the scripts included in post editor, and the profile display.

I'm getting the same - and it's getting a bit annoying !!!

In my case it seems to relate mostly to the profile section.

At one stage I even turned into an accountant!

All my blogs (using 3 different accounts / user names) are affected.

Yep, I'm getting it too.

I'm getting the German problem and my email copies of comments posted on my blog have gone really weird. They are full of html stuff and don't link through to the relevant post. These two problems started at exactly the same time.

Same here about both the German stuff AND the e-mails including loads of html.

Yes I when I am asked if I want to view my blog, up comes:-

Blog anzeigen (in einem neuen Fenster)

Very entertaining but I'd like my English version back ASAP please :)

Even the "Leave Your Comment" has its notes at the bottom in Germaan as I write this!

I hate German, get it off of me!!!

Please fix our blogger interface?
Hermes said…
I can't believe it's STILL not on the blogger status page !
Improbulus said…
The fix is to set your Dashboard language to "English - English" and leave it there, don't try to change it back to UK (at least not till Blogger fix this issue permanently!)

Yup, still got the problem - even after the fix and even after changing my language from English (UK) to English.

Adding A Link To Your Blog Post

Occasionally, you see a very odd, cryptic complaint I just added a link in my blog, but the link vanished! No, it wasn't your imagination.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.
