blogger! grrrr....! help!

What, you thought I wanted a blog header the colour of dog puke? No, I did not. The colours of my blog template have changed. On their own. And they won't change back.

Blogger accepted a few changes, so at least I have my lower-case back on the sidebar! But the colours are all off, and no matter what I do, they don't budge.

The header, post titles, post footers, and tags should all be black.

Grrrrr...

Update. It appears that whatever changes I make are showing up when you click on the tabs, but not on the home page. I repeat: grrrr.

LOL--that's the most pathetic subhed I've ever seen, and damn near impossible to read too: blood red on puke brown.

:)

My online students use blogger, and there have been a lot of format/template/layout problems this semester.

It's weird - when you click on the tabs, it looks fine. And when the main page first loads, it also looks fine - then quickly changes to the puke look.

And stranger still, no colour code for the puke is in the template.

And apparently now there is something called blogspot.ca. Hmm. Strange.

Blogspot.ca would be part of Blogger's new censorship-compliance program. When you try to visit whatever.blogspot.com, the server checks your IP address, figures out what country you're in, and re-directs you to the domain associated with your country. If a Canadian take-down order or complaint is received, the whatever.blogspot.ca version will be censored, and anyone with a Canadian IP address won't see the offending post.

Mike Bradley, is that based on actual knowledge or your own speculation?

.CA addresses have to be registered with CIRA (I know, as I have one) and are not based on IP addresses.

Also, what type of Canadian censorship are you thinking of? Content-based, such as Human Rights Act offenses, or copyright infringements, or... ??

I found this, about Google's supposed censorship compliance program. I'm unclear how that relates to Canada, but here it is: link.
