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 !

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.

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 "" - 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,,, and They are run by the same company as, and are given away as URL redirections.
