blogspot blues

EDIT: the post below was originally published on march 5, 2010. we changed the date because we want it to be at the top of the page. so until we figure out what's going on or until blogger fixes this problem, we're keeping this post at the top of the page. (if readers have any insight or suggestions, please feel free to comment.) thank you!

we spent a good part of the evening trying to figure out blogspot. our main page has always had 15 days posted on it. this past week, we noticed that it only had 10-12 posts. tonight it only has seven! what is going on, man?? we never changed our settings and when we checked, it still said 15. another thing: whenever we go through the archive (for example, click on january 2010), we don't get the complete list of posts from any particular month! what the HELL is going on, man?? is there a glitch in the matrix or what?? haay, what to do, what to do... kainez.

that's disturbing.

did the entries come back?

meanwhile in livejournal, it's totally acting up when I use mac. but in PC it loads fine. so now i'm forced to use my PC.

the entries are there, they're just not as easy now to find. we have to use the search bar on the upper left corner. tell us, how many posts/days do you see on the main page? right now, we see only eight (up to cute & cool 3, dated feb 24).

A friend directed me to this post on your site... I've been having problems with blogspot too. All my posts for 2010 went missing. :(

so what do we do, judy? the posts are there when we go to "edit posts." but if readers want to view archives (ex., december 2009), less than half the posts of the month show up :-(

same thing happens to my blog/website. posts are there in my dashboard but can't be seen the website (www.thecakeartist.ph). if you take a look at the blogger help forums, there are quite a number who have this same problem. my last option would be to have the site redesigned and i know that would cost and arm and a leg (... or a couple of wedding cakes).

btw, heard about your blog from a friend, Marbee Go of Wedding Essentials. :)

there's a glitch in blogspot. they don't follow the 'number of posts' we provide in the settings part of our blog account. according to blogspot, they're trying to fix this. but it's been months already!

thanks, joei, for updating us. hope blogspot can fix it soon! it's frustrating!!

same thing here, the other day i was trying to find a blog entry on a book review and i couldn't find it anymore, tried searching the tag still nothing and then i manually checked each entry, all of them.. nothing.

i know some others who use blogger and have the same problem. also when i tried searching my blogs for anything not all posts show.

as soon as i find the solution to this problem, will let you know.

i have a travel blog and i don't know anymore which entries are missing as i started maybe three years ago. =(

Gucci replica bags / fake handbag is a global brand and of course make marvelous quality of products from all practical angles of modern fashion accessories. However, most of the fashion conscious ladies cannot afford to buy original instead buy fake handbag because these are too costly.

I hope this problem will be solved soon.

im about to say to check the formatting tab under setting tab, but it seems that you still have the right settings there. Im just curious because the other blogspot accounts that im checking are still showing 15 posts. hope this problem will be solved immediately.

what if you choose a different blog theme?

this is not a bug i believe. this has something to do with webpage optimization. i also was horrified at first to see only a few posts on the main page of my blog so i did some research on blogger forum and indeed this is a known thing. blogger has adjusted the settings from the source to only show the number of posts that best optimizes webpage loading. the goal here is not to keep your readers waiting for your page to load (remember not all have ADSL lines) before they decide to click x and go away. so its for your own good (mine as well since i post a lot of fotos). its always best to keep at 5 to 7 (max) entries on the main page.

cheers,

thanks for the tip, dpt! but what about the problem of not getting the complete archive when you click on a month? :-(
