Frustration with blogger.....

Mum has had awful trouble with my blog. All the side bar items dropped to bottom of main blog, footer went in middle and lots more things happened. Mum thinks it was maybe because when she went to post yesterday it was telling her that tags were missing etc. Mum had been cutting and pasting pictures. Mum has been tearing her hair out trying to fix it. After contacting a help link most of it has been fixed but lots of side bar items are now right at the bottom. Mum had enough for now and will try and lift them up later. Mum said she wishes she was clever like a lot of blogger friends and knew how to put awards etc into special places.

See you all later.. Love GJ xx

Well, we're glad you're here after all that trouble! Our mom has the same difficulty if she tries to do anything off the grid with our blog. She's not very technical.

Brian said...

Tell your Mom GJ that yes, it is a problem with a missing our out of place html tag, probably a > or a " is missing somewhere, likely on one of the recently posted pictures.

GJ, tell your mum to contact my mum and she will help you out.

Simba said...

GJ, Mom is a novice, but she rearranges things in "Design" by draggng the items on the side into the positions she wants, then Save.

My mummy usually says "right, i'm ignoring you now and going away to make a cup of coffee. When I come back I expect you to have sorted yourself out". If that fails, she turns it off and ignores it until the next day. So techy..........not hee he :)xx

Blogger can be so annoying. We don't even have the new format on ours. Mom is afraid to change anything. We hope someone out there can help Mom figure it out. You look quite handsomely puzzled today, GJ.

It looks like it's back to normal but we understand your Mum's frustration. Our Mom finally figured out the 'pages' option, but it took her a long time!

GJ, how frustrating for you mommy! If anything happened to my blog, my mommy is useless and would probably hiss and stuff because she's useless--just as I said.

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww lovely GJ!! Please give your mum lots of cuddles!! Blogger could be so frustrating at times!! Does mum use the Design option? then dragging things up and down??

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!! Hugs to your mum! Take care

GJ: Sorry you're having trouble with the blog. Frustrating. Hope it all gets fixed soon. Have a great day anyway.

pawhugs, Max

The Paw Relations said...

Oh no Jasper. We hope your mum gets it sorted soon.

Frankie Furter said...

I have seen a lot of complaints about blogger being a pain under the tail lately. I think it has Spring Fever.

Hannah and Lucy said...

How strange GJ - this happened to mum a couple of weeks ago on her laptop and she has tried and tried to put it right but she says she'll have to get a friend to come and do it for her cos she had a list of blogs on it and that's one of the things that is hiding somewhere (hopefully)! Fortunately the old computer is still OK and so she is using that at the moment.

Our mama would love to help your mom. Mama can put up tabs to other pages.....if you would like her help please email her at samandy007@satx.rr.com, and she will tell you what it entails.

we love you GJ and your mum and your dad

The Chair Speaks said...

Thank you GJ for visiting and sending purrs.
Not good in this field, our human don't do not simply shift things in the blog.
We are happy as long as we can see your handsome face and cute freckled nose. :)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Hi GJ! We are sorry you are having problems with blogger not cooperating - it looks like things are normal now (there is not a lot at the bottom at least). Tell your mom our mom gets frustrated with blogger too and our mom has even taken an html class in school. I am with Brian that the tag issue is either what he said or a missing close tag (usually if there is an open tag it needs a close so if there is a it needs a ). That is usually our mom's problem if she is moving stuff, she has deleted something in the close (she deletes the < symbol all the time). And our mom will help your mom out too but our mom is BAD about checking email - but you can always contact her if you need help (our email is in our profile and we have emailed with you before too).

We have to say GJ that we love that picture of you - you look sad about blogger but you sure do look cute too!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Ha - mom put the html code in as an example and it used it in our post - it should be "if there is a <B> it needs a </b> (hope this works this time)

Kari said...

We are just thankful to be able to see your beautiful, loving face each day!
Sorry your mum is having trouble with your blog. All that tech stuff makes our mum run the other way.

Cat said...

Everything looks pretty good right now!!! Tell your mum not to get discouraged, I'm a total blogging dunce and don't know how to do any special stuff either :-)

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Well that's frustrating! We're not much help as we use WordPress.

GreatGranny said...

My Mom is so techy illiterate. She has had problems too with blogger. Hope you get the necessary help.
GJ, I know you'd help Mom if you could.
xoxo Kassey

Mack said...

Blogger can be a total toot sometimes! Glad to see you are looking quite healthy!

Gattina said...

I had that once too, but my whole sidebar disappeared forever and I had to create a new blog !
I wonder if it is not the fact that you have too many furry friends comments from 2 h to One week. That's maybe too long for the sidebar. I am not sure. I only show 10 comments in my sidebar not more.
Anyway it looks good to me only you have to scroll down a lot to see the end !

The Cat From Hell said...

Dear GJ,
Yes, Blogger has been very - um - "difficult" (a nice polite word) lately. Mommy has been gnashing her teeths and making lots of swearing noises....
Kisses

Sparkle said...

My human is semi-techy, but when she comes across a something she can't easily solve, it can be a nightmare!

We don't use Blogger, but I have heard several others complain about Blogger lately. Maybe something is causing problems in general?

Madi and Mom said...

GJ
TEll mom not to beat herself up over the crazy blogger. Sometimes it is not very user friendly.
Mom and I aren't very techie either.
Lots of bloggers change their headers and templates everyday. Mom is absolutle afraid to do that for fear of losing everything!!
Hugs Madi

BeadedTail said...

Our mommy doesn't understand all that Blogger stuff either GJ but we're glad to see your handsome face today!

Deb said...

Hi GJ. I'm not much help, sorry.

Marg said...

Our Mom is horrible about technical stuff. I hope she can get if fixed. Sometimes, you just want to throw the computer out the window. A friend who lives in England who also has dogs, said the dog would just bring it back. LOL. Anyway, all we can do is wish you good luck.

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Everything seems back to normal now. We have had that happen to us and we thinks it is something the people at blogger do when they are upgrading cause it eventually fixes itself.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

GJ, we are so sorry about the trouble with blogger. When we have trouble, we have to get help from Mimi at Loving for a Living because mom doesn't have a clue what she is doing!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

The Island Cats said...

GJ, our mom doesn't like computers much either!! But as long as we can see your handsome face, we don't mind.

We hope your mum can get it all worked out. Sounds like some of the others can help her with it.

san said...

You look pretty good here GJ. Sorry about your mom's troubles with blogger. Let's hope blogger behaves the next time.

Catsparella said...

Aww, I hate to see you sad, GJ! Your bloggie looks good to me, so I hope your Mum figured everything out! xo

Lorenza said...

Making changes in my blog is something that scares my mom a lot!
I hope you get yours exactly how you want it!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Punapippuri said...

We don't understand blogger and it's working so we just get our secretary to fill it all in. We hope she never messes it up with format changes! And besides it's what your Mum writes that matters not where it is :)

Freya's Staff said...

I think it looks ok to me, maybe it's fixed?

Jenner said...

We've been having terrible problems with blogger as well.

Aniemother said...

That must be so frustrating.. Blogger can be a pain now and again.

Chloe and Cecil said...

Our mom is so not techy! On top of that, her New 'puter is sic with a failing hard drive (whatever that means) gesshhh!
We want to post today but who knows if we's can do dat.

fambly kittens said...

Tell your momma that our momma is havin' troubles an' so are her FURends, too.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Blogger has been really BAD. It has deleted my comments, some of the posts entirely and for days I could not even get in at all. I hope everything is working okay by now! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly
