Comment Disposal, With Pop-up Window Selected

Several bloggers have reported inability to remove comments from their blogs, apparently when comments are enabled with "Pop-up window" selected, because they will lack a trash can - which is normally provided for each comment. The alternate selections, "Full page" and "Embedded below post", do not appear to be affected by this problem.

If you use the "Edit Posts" menu, you'll have a list of all posts with comments. If you click on the appropriate "comment" link, you'll be temporarily put into single post mode, with the comments displayed below the post - and there will be a trash can available for each comment. If you find this inconvenient, you can permanently change the Comment Form Placement option, to show comments either as "Full page" or "Embedded below post".

(Update 10/28 12:00): Blogger Support is aware of the problem.
We'll keep working on this one. ... I'll check into this ASAP.

Comments

We have had this problem with the Blog for about a week now and the workaround (w/o the "Pop-Up" window) isn't feasible... it seems to annoy the Posters. We've had to enable comment moderation to keep from getting Spammed. It is a big inconvenience though because we have to stay on top of the Blog so that our Posters get their comments Published quickly, but in the meantime, we're getting very little sleep! Please help! We need this issue resolved soon!
Thank you!

Mary,

If you leave it in "Pop-up window", can't you delete the comments using the "Edit Posts" menu? And enabling comment moderation is part of normal life. IMHO, comment moderation should default to the "Enabled" setting.

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.
