Blog Owners Find Static Pages Don't Allow Comments

Last week, blog owners discovered a new problem with commenting on their blogs.
I keep enabling comments on my pages, but Blogger keeps disabling them!

From having observed the reports of the problem, it appears to affect all blogs - both varying template type, and use of the different GUIs (Classic and New 2011), appear to be referenced.

Blogger Support has acknowledged the problem.
Thanks everyone for your patience, we're hoping to have a fix rolled out shortly.

(Update 10/19): This has been corrected.

(Update 11/09): Today, we see a new problem with static pages and comments - this one involving dynamic views.

Hi Chuck, tx for your response on blogger regarding the visibility of the comment box. I am following your advice and am checking if this comment will post on your site. I am confident that it will.

On your various blog sites, I did not however see any comment boxes like I would like to have on my blog...

cheers, Manuel

It's says the problem has been fixed. But as of Nov. 1, 2011 -- my blogger blog still default to no comment allowed unless I manually allow them each time.

I'm glad others are talking about this issue. Please, Blogger, fix this. Thanks!

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.
