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.

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?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
