The Buggy Blogger Saga, Part 2
1) OK, so apparently the only email address I can get emailed to me with a comment is my own. Helpful, that. Everyone else still shows as "firstname.lastname@example.org," even though PJ and I commented back and forth to see if it would work. It didn't, though we both have our emails set to public. I guess Blogger still has that little bug.
2) The blog backup via Scrapbook worked great. I saved my archives for each year separately, rather than all in one big lump as Russell described (though I tried his method as well, and it also worked), because that way I can update throughout the coming year without re-saving every post every time. I'll do each month of 2007 separately during the year, and consolidate 2007 at the end of December.
3) I figured out how to fix my inability to post pictures using Firefox. I cleared my cookies and cache. D'oh. That's right up there with making sure that the cord is plugged into the outlet.
4) Though I didn't mention it in the last post, I've also had the problem that I couldn't change the post date (either into the future or in the past) without it automatically changing to the current date and time. This came up because I went back into an old post to correct something, and wanted to preserve the original post date, not the date when I did the correction. Very frustrating. Then, two days ago, I accidentally discovered that if I entered the date with slashes, not dashes, it worked fine. As in: 12/20/06 was an acceptable format, but 12-20-06 would get reset to the current date/time. Of course, the default format for Blogger uses slashes, but my usual default is dashes, so that's what I was using when I manually entered a date. Haven't had any problems since I realized that, and maybe it'll help someone else.
