Blog Owners Find Static Pages, On Dynamic Templates, Don't Allow Comments

A month ago, we discovered a problem with static pages and commenting, on our blogs. That problem was later fixed.

Yesterday, while exploring a subtle problem with commenting on posts when using a dynamic template, I discovered a new problem with static pages and commenting, also on the dynamic template.

You may examine my static page commenting form, in this blog - and observe that it's possible to leave a comment in that page, Leave Comments Here. Then find the same page, in a dynamic view of this blog, using the link in the menu bar (it's there - move the cursor, slowly) - and again, try to leave a comment in that page.

I think that the above test will illustrate the problem. This problem appears to be distinctly separate from the previously observed problem with the commenting form, and posts, in the dynamic template.

If you design your blog with static pages, and make comments from your readers a significant part of the experience, you may not wish to make the dynamic templates a default view, for your blog.

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:
