The "Show" Setting In Settings - Formatting

Every few days, we see confusion in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, about the archive / label retrieval display limit, vs the main page size setting.
How do I get my label retrieval to show more than 20 posts?

The "Show" setting, in Settings - Formatting (now, "Posts, comments and sharing") applies to the main page display size, only.

Archive and Label retrievals are limited to 20 posts / page, as a fixed maximum setting. Archive and label retrievals are also subject to auto pagination limits.

Since main page in dynamic view is not paginated - it displays continuously, as you scroll down the page - the "Show" setting will not apply there, either.

Fortunately, Jump Break appears to shorten both the "archive" (date organised archive display) and "label" (label organised archive display) page lengths - just as it does the "main page" length. If you need to bring your archive or label page display size under control, using Jump Break is the only choice provided.

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:
