Honey, I shrunk the header

Regular visitors may notice that my artwork is conspicuously absent from the header right now.

At the weekend, I thought it was about time for a change of view.

Loaded a new image.

Checked the results.

Checked own pulse after mild heart attack.

The picture was about half the size it should have been, sitting all lonely in a big brown background. It looked crap. I removed it and tried again. Same result. I decided maybe there was a problem with the image, so put back the old one. Still crap! Now I can't even get back to what I had before.

Went to the "report issues" link only to find that you can't actually report an issue to someone who cares. All you can do is bleat about it on a message board and hope someone will notice. Someone had already bleated about this problem. Several people, in fact. Well, I can take comfort from knowing that it's not my image that's the problem. Blogger has screwed something up somewhere.

Bad Blogger!

So, until they put right whatever they screwed up, my header is pictureless. For now I've added the image I wanted to use to the Words and pictures tab.


  1. This is unacceptable. I'm never coming back!

    *just kidding*

  2. Perhaps it's time for a template change? That's what I did when Blogger's functionality became annoying. Of course, I had been looking for a change anyway.

    Luckily the content of this blog remains the same, Ian. That's really all that's important. :)

  3. Awww...please, Elena :D

    David, it didn't occur to me that it might only affect my template, or that changing it might help. Not looking for unwanted extra work right now, and it seems to be a widespread problem.

    I checked the Blogger forums and it has now been fixed. Hurray!


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
