I'm Being Criticized!

As I have posted before I participate in some of the Blogger.com help boards. I'm now being criticized for answering some of the older posts - say like 15 days old (and some older) that haven't had any replies to them.

I just don't understand this kind of reasoning. I mean if someone makes a post and no one replies to it doesn't that make it look like no one has taken the time to even look at it? If I can answer the post then I do - especially if I have something relevent to add. There have been times when I have answered an older post and someone has either emailed me or posted a comment to this blog either thanking me for answering their post or asking me for more information.

All of this started around the time that I started talking about their being a bypass for the bx error code problem and I came to find out that Blogger.com was not aware of there being such a procedure - so I didn't mention it again UNTIL someone brought it up on the boards!

So I'll just have to see how this kind of thing "pans" out!

I just have a question and really have no clue who or where to ask. Here it goes...

I have set up my word 2007 to post to my blog. Everything works perfectly and I find it so much easier to type in Word than to mess with bloggers editing disaster. The only problem is that it will not post the photos that I add. During set up it asks for my picture provider. So I looked up how to do this and it says that I need to do this:

"In the Upload URL box, type the address that you use to upload pictures to your picture provider's server. This can be an FTP or HTTP address, depending on the server configuration. Contact the provider of your picture-hosting service if you need help determining the address to use.

In the Source URL box, type the HTTP address that is used to display the pictures. The blog post will use this address as part of the IMG tag in the HTML of the blog post files."

Where do I find these?
Thanks so much.

Not all Blog Stars feel the same way about your replies. Just ignore the criticism and continue helping where you can.

I'm taking only a guess here but I'm guessing that this is referring to having an online host / account that lets you house your photos. I use an online site called Photobucket. When I upload pictures there it will give me the url of the picture and I can use that url in other places - such as my Blogger.com blog so that my entire picture will show.

I'm also not sure of the method that you are talking about because when I want to upload a photo in one of my blog posts I just use the blogger.com option of adding a photo - which, by the way, lets me add a photo from my harddrive as opposed to having to provide a url.

I have to say thanks for being helpful. I have been researching a bx code problem I am having and on the "help group" you are the only one helping. So maybe you can help me. I tried to apply a new template to my blog and now I am getting a bx-xdmtya code. I have cleared the cache and cookies and I am still getting it. I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to fix it and need some help!

After leaving the previous message about my bx code, I found your bx code blog, so I did the steps that you said to. So short of sharing the bx bypass keystokes (which you don't do) I guess it is a waiting game. Thanks for your help.

I have been told from someone who posts on the Blogger.com help boards that Blogger.com has said that there is no bypass procedure! Unfortunately Blogger.com has got to admit that they are wrong about this because there is a bypass that I have been using for a few months now and it has worked everytime!

As a matter of fact I have seen someone else post that they have found yet another way to fix the bx error code problem - unfortunately I didn't do what they did which is to just keep my mouth shut about being able to bypass the bx error code screen. I just thought that Blogger.com already knew about it but I have come to find out that they say that there is no bypass procedure.

It is rumored that they already know about it but just aren't telling the bloggers' what the procedure is - I'm assuming because they want people to report the bx error codes as opposed to giving the bloggers' the procedure for getting out of the bx error code screen messages.

So far it does look like its going to be a waiting game. Blogger.com has said that even though they may solve some of the bx error codes New ones will also be popping up - so I don't know if that makes the bx error code problems better or worse!

I have seen quite a few people post that they are moving their blogs elsewhere - how long is it going to take Blogger.com to realize that this is a serious bone of contention with some bloggers and they risk losing some of their bloggers?

Only time will tell!
