Blog Owners Unable To Block Unwanted Followers

We are currently seeing various reports, in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, from blog owners who are finding the "Block" button inoperative. The button will change color ("light up") when the cursor is moved over it, but it will do nothing when clicked.

Everyone reporting the problem, reports that using a different browser does nothing to solve the problem. Neither the Block button reached from the dashboard, nor the Followers gadget on the blog, is operational.

We have a Rollup Discussion, where this issue is being explored.

It's possible that many people who are not reporting this problem will suffer from it, even though they do not realise this. If you do not need to Block any Followers right now, it may still be in your advantage to check your button, and verify its operational status.
  • From your Followers list on the dashboard, or from the blog display (when you are signed in to Following), click on any individual Follower.
  • Click on "Block this user".
  • Click on the "Block" button.
  • If your button proves operational, and a user is Blocked, you can restore access, using the "Show blocked Followers" link in the Followers community display.
  • Please report, in the Rollup Discussion, of your results. Your input is badly needed for this issue.
Whatever you report, your feedback will be appreciated!


(Update 2010/12/08): Blogger informs us that this problem should now be resolved.

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.
