Apologies photo fans

Yes, I've noticed it too - recent photos I've uploaded are not showing and even I get a 'forbidden' message if I click on them. I have no idea why as they were loading fine earlier in the week. As this has been going on for several days I'm putting a query into Google/Blogger/Picasa. They are quite happily sitting viewable in the automatic Picasa album that anything I upload to the blog goes to (you can view it yourself here: THEWORLDFROMHERE04), just nowhere else.

Anyone else using Blogger having similar problems?

UPDATE: until this is resolved, excepting preloads like MTPY, I will use other photo hosting services, possibly Imagebam.

UPDATE 2: panic over! a third party - preusmably Picasa admin when they deleted an adult folder in there - had reset 2 of the 4 feeder albums so that only people with the link could view them, whereas they need to be set as public or they obviously won't display. I'm hoping that was accidental and I don't get any further comeback. If so, would seem rather that Blogger and Picasa rules conflict, which is crazy if that's how Blogger auto-archives your images.



just hoping for you this doesn't mean you're in trouble as there's been a lot of shutdowns lately...
good luck!!

I don't think that's it, though they did delete a 'porno' album from Picasa this week, but everything else is still there intact. The automatic link with Blogger seems broken.

I gather you can't see any photos on the blog either?

niet! nada! nothing!!
are you linked to blogger's crawlers? i know i'm not listed, and i have specified it is adult content, and i keep my picasa opened only to those who got the link, via my queer blog. trying to limit access from the general public. they can't say i'm not trying to keep it safe from the general public...

I don't know if I'm linked to the crawlers - should I be? I don't consider the site to be adult content, though I know some would disagree, and that's why I flag up bits that link to such. Of course there are some things beyond my reach, like the people who follow me whose icon is their cock or something.

I know there are others with the same problem today, but I can see other 'blogspot' blogs fine.

I also had trouble commenting earlier.


if you go to your dashboard, go to "settings", then "basic", and when you see the question "add your blog to our listings", say "no" and save.
it will keep people to find your blog by jumping from one to another, bringing in an audience you may not need around, like "white picket fence, 2.5 kids, SUV, radical christian zealots or other zealots of other persuasions..." better err on the side of caution.

and don't fool yourself: you have adult content...
