FTP Publishing, With Attachments

Blogs published using FTP have always provided a challenge for Blogger Support, as well as for their owners. This week, the complaint level, in general, is a bit lower than immediately previous.

There is a current, new frustration many bloggers are dealing with, when publishing by FTP - publishing with attachments, such as photos and videos.
Your publishing is taking longer than expected.


One blogger has done some analysis of the symptoms, and has provided an (apparently necessarily) intricate workaround for the problem.
I have figured out that the current failure is *after* the images (& hopefully same for video) are uploaded. The files have been ftp-ed but the names of the files are never added to the blog entry for you.


Meanwhile, back at Google, I have word from the guys who make it all work
we're certain it's something on our end so we are working to fix it


So despite any authoritative forum updates by a Blogger Employee, the problem is known and is being diagnosed.

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.
