Dear LazyWeb: I tried to help my friend
Alex Waterhouse-Hayward with
some problems he’s having on his blog, and managed to completely screw things
up. I would sure appreciate a word or two of wisdom from someone who
[Update: Problem solved. I created another FTP-only account on Alex’s hosting service and told Blogger to use that and it seems OK. I gotta say, my first serious experience with Blogger has been kinda pukey.]
[And hey, Alex wrote about it, elegantly.]
The symptom is that when you try to upload or publish anything, the
blogger.com “Status” screen says “Publishing files to your blog...” and shows
the little spinning indicator, but nothing else happens. When I click the
“Show transfer details...” link, nothing happens. I have looked at the
FTP-settings screen till I’m cross-eyed and tried running FTP manually
and it works fine. I don’t have permissions to look at
on the server to see if there’s any evidence there.
Does anyone have any ideas as regards next steps? A thousand thanks in advance.
