Friend Connect integration issues:
  • Currently the Friend Connect settings page will display in the same language as the blog hosting it. We are working on a fix to have this page reflect your default language.
  • Following a blog with the 'Add from URL' feature in your dashboard currently doesn't work with the eight Indic languages. We should have this resolved shortly once we get the proper translations, however you can still follow a blog directly if the gadget is enabled.
  • Some users with a rectangular Blogger profile image may notice size distortions in Friend Connect. We are working on a fix.
  • Following doesn't currently work if you have an iGoogle gadget in your layout. We're working on a fix, but in the meantime you can remove any iGoogle gadgets from the Layouts | Page Elements tab.

The word verification form is currently failing to load for some users. As a temporary workaround, you can disable word verification from the Settings | Comments tab.

We're working on a fix now, and apologize for the inconvenience.
The custom domain redirect setting is currently not functional for some users. We are working on a fix and hope to have it resolved shortly.

We appreciate your patience.
We are in the process of integrating with Google Friend Connect, which may temporarily affect the Following feature for some users. Specifically, users who already use Following and Friend Connect may notice missing blogs in their profile, as well as a decrease in the number of public Followers on their blogs.

This is because
we have set these users to "anonymous" to avoid linking the profiles of Blogger and Friend Connect users without their permission. They are still following privately and will able to make themselves public again.

After the official launch of the Friend Connect integration, we will communicate with the affected users and instruct them how to reset their relationship to public. To reiterate: the number of Followers has not changed, and we believe that the launch will improve the visibility of your blog and community. We will post more details on Blogger Buzz as the launch approaches.

Some users have reported missing posts on the main page of their blog. We are looking into this and hope to have a fix out shortly.

As a workaround, create a new blank post and save it as a draft. This should reset your cache and display the missing posts.
