You might have copy pasted the post from a word file. If you want to do so, First copy paste the content to notepad and again copy the same to your blog from notepad.
Arti, I tried accesing you blog, it looks OK and I am able to access the same.
Just discard changes, sign out and sign in back. More importantly, if you want to change the HTML, back up the HTML code, before attempting for changes.
Hope this helps!
I am also a blogger use, though i am not a techie guy, but i had faced a similar problem twice. My experience says that when we do some formatting to our posts in MS word like introducing bullets, indent , spacing, changing the font colour, size etc. and then copy paste the same in blogger, it gives this message and prevents us from saving the stuff. I dont know, but till the time i was using Internet Explorer, i never faced this problem. Now what i do is, i simply type it in MS word without giving any bullets or line spacing and then copy paste it, so its working well with me.
Advice for Blogspot users:
DO ALL FORMATTING IN BLOGSPOT EDIT MODE. Text, formatted externally, messes up when pasted in Blogger.
So, if copy-pasting from somewhere else, paste it into Edit HTML mode, not "Compose" mode. After pasting, come back to "Compose" mode, and do the formatting.
If using MS Word, better not do formatting there. Just type out, because ultimately the formatting has to be done in Blogger's Compose mode only, if you don't want a mess-up.
At Blogger sometime it does happens some html gets misplaced resulting in error in html posting.
Like sometime we tries to put pictures or video but by mistake we delete or remove some tags , so we can use the codes if we want to post a picture from the web or if we can ulload and then check if the picture is having the right syntax or not.
here is one simple code for that
<img border="0" height="210" src="put the http image path of image here" width="320" />
You can change the height and width as per your blog . and inside " " put the link address , and its there .
For video you will get the embedding code normally from where you are taking that video.
or else you can use this link "http://cit.ucsf.edu/embedmedia/step1.php"
If there are issues 1st copy the contents you have written and save it in notepad. and then do some workaround over it.
Hope it helps :)
What I mean is write your posy in MS Word and copy paste it in Edit HTML mode of editor. Ar you using the latest editor.
Look at the first image and the first tab in the article..may be you will get some clue.
I thought something headrolling, good that your problem had an immediate solution and now you are back in business......Lolz
Now that we are on this topic, let me share my exeperience, I have never been able to paste Excel tables in Blogger.
Any help will be very helpful.
Try pasting in WORD and then copy from there and paste it onto Blogger post.
Try using different browsers. Hope this helps.
It is due to the fact that ms word adds its on crappy formatting to the text.
To get rid of it, do not write your articles in word.
Use windows live writer if you really love to write in your computer first.
Then you can also directly publish to your blog from the Windows Live Writer options.
It is very convenient and verey useful if you write a lot.
Hope that helps someone. :)
I wanted to put up images of maps(not google maps, the normal .gif/.jpeg image maps) on my blog for travel posts...
But I want to edit these maps and place markers or arrow marks at certain places along the route and track a certain section of the entire route with a different color.
Is this possible?? If yes, can anyone please tell me how this has to be done...
@ Arti: I use windows live writer. A friend uses it for wordpress. Works pretty nicely. You can use the live writer and then publish as draft. Check the draft via blogspot's dashboard and preview it if it all looks good. Live write is my "saviour" as I end up putting 20-40 pictures, benchmarks and screenshots whenever I am putting up a hardware review.
Thanks for the 'Windows Live Writer' tip. Last day I posted a blog post comprising more than 5 pictures. The editor in Wordpress gave me nightmares !!!
Also, I think the shift from Blogspot to Wordpress was a bad move (for me). Blogspot is more user friendly.
I have a post which is a good source of traffic to my blog through Google search. It comes very high in its web search but the post contains a dead link.I want to edit the post and correct the link. It is an old post published in the month of August.Will such an action have any effect on the Google search results??
No, you can update the post without affecting the search engine rank. Don't change the title.
