"Fonts and Colors" Is Now A Template Designer Menu

There were months in 2010, when the Template Designer was a Draft Blogger feature.

During 2010, we saw a few reports from bloggers who tried to use the "Fonts and Colors" wizard to make changes to a blog with a Designer template - or tried to use the Template Designer to make changes to a blog with a Layouts template. Since the CSS rules used in Designer templates are significantly different from those in Layout templates, this was a source of a few problems.

As part of adding the Template Designer to Production Blogger, Blogger has removed "Fonts and Colors", and has made the Advanced menu in Template Designer sensitive to Designer vs Layout CSS differences.

Now, you use Template Designer for all Fonts and Colors changes to blogs with a Layout template, as well as to blogs with a Designer template.


There's no No Fonts and Colors wizard, so how do I make changes to my Layout template?



Apparently, using the Template Designer!



Looks like it works!



Now, if you are using the Advanced menu, and find that you don't care for the way the various settings are grouped, or would like additional controls, you can add settings, or shuffle settings around - on a blog by blog basis.

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.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
