Scribfire Is Another Victim Of The OAuth Upgrade

It appears that Scribfire is one more third party product, that needs upgrading to use OAuth 2.0 authentication.

We have a report in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue.
I use Scribefire to post to my blogs. It works fine with WordPress, but I have not been able to set it up with my Blogger Blog.
And later,
I have already enabled the "Less secure apps" option. Still no go.
This blog owner is patiently trying to diagnose a problem, over which neither he nor we have any control.

Apparently, the "Less secure apps" option only works for apps which have been updated to OAuth 2.0, for client login.

The "Less secure apps" option, in Google Accounts, simply appears to complement the use of OAuth 2.0. That option was provided, with an emergency upgrade to Microsoft Windows Live Writer, made jointly by Blogger and Microsoft engineers, last month.

Apps which have not been updated, to support the Blogger upgrade to OAuth 2.0, won't work - apparently even with a blog owner using "Less secure apps".

The ScribFire website appears to have been last updated a year ago - so the app may or may not be actively supported. The Home page does provide a possibly useful link.

If you are a ScribFire to Blogger user, you should try the link, and see if you get results. Otherwise, you may have to find another way to use Blogger.

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.
