Animated image files will not stay animated if the file is hosted by Blogger. This happens because Picasa doesn't support animated images and the Blogger-hosted photos are stored in Picasa Web Albums.

The new “Post Feed Redirect” will occasionally stop redirecting clients when it is set to a FeedBurner feed. The workaround for now is to add an “?alt=atom” parameter to the feed URL in your FeedBurner settings.

Update, 8/24: This has been fixed.

Embedded Google Maps can only be edited in Edit HTML mode. Compose mode will change the embedded code so that the map no longer appears, and this may also cause problems using the posting form.

Update, 9/25: This has been fixed (for a week or so now, actually).

Images uploaded to Blogger via Picasa’s BlogThis! feature are not appearing if the alignment is set to “left” or “right.” The current workaround is to upload images with an alignment of “none.”

Update, 2/8/08: This has been fixed for a while, now. Closing.

Some script tags inserted manually into the template code, instead of inserted through a HTML/JavaScript page element, will prevent the Template Page Elements tab from fully loading. For instance, some users report that they are unable to view the "Add Page Element" link. To workaround this issue, please ensure that all JavaScript is inserted via a page element.


Industry and occupation do not display in non-English profiles.


If you delete all images uploaded to your blog from your Blogger Picasa Web album and then delete that album, you will be unable to upload new images to your blog.


Comment notification emails sometimes aren't properly displaying special characters (e.g. apostrophes, accents, etc.) in the subject line of the email.


In Internet Explorer 6.0 and in Compose mode, if you upload an image and then drag it to another location in your post, you might be unable to click through to the full size version of the image once the post is published. To avoid this problem, you can either use a different web browser or switch to Edit HTML mode to move the image code manually.


If you are using a custom domain, your BlogSpot address will only redirect to that domain if it does not have "www" at the beginning. I.e. both and will display the blog correctly, but only the former will appear with your custom domain name.


If a profile item (Interests, Favorites, etc.) includes a hyphen (eg: Blogger-Cat), then the profile search will not display any results. To workaround this issue, simply replace the "-" with a "+" in the address bar of the search results page, and you'll get the proper results.


Some rectangular images uploaded via the Picture widget in Layouts are being displayed as square, and are thus distorted.
