The Blogger 'fix' for image enlargement does not work

Note that the image problem reported which started on 30th November is NOT FIXED.

Some of you who have experienced the problem with images will have tried the suggested fix. It seems to work for some people but note that there are also reports that for others it makes the situation worse (I suggest you read through the nearly 80 posts to this 'Hot Topic' thread to see what I mean). If you've not tried the fix I'd suggest you sit tight as I'm doing - just in case!

It's now Day 5 of this problem and Blogger are STILL working on it.

Yesterday 'Blogger employee' reported to the Blogger Help (Google) Group that
Thanks for keeping us posted on what you're experiencing. We're still working on the fix, but we should be releasing it shortly. At that point, all future images you upload should enlarge as before. To fix the currently affected images, you will likely have to manually fix them. I know this is somewhat tedious, so apologies in advance.

  1. Katherine, The fix worked for me, but I have only fixed one so far. :)

  2. New posts seem to be OK - it's just the old ones which now need fixing.

    I'm going to try the much simpler removal of image / publish / reinsert image / publish routine first I think!

COMMENTS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED

There are lots of very silly people who don't understand that Google is not stupid and that links posted to a Blogger comment are:
* NOT LIVE and
* CARRY NO LINK JUICE.
They continue to post spam comments - despite this blog using both word verification and moderation that states very clearly that no spam will be published.

So I've SUSPENDED COMMENTING BY EVERYBODY but me. This allows past comments to still be seen.

Feel free to comment on my Facebook Page when my blog posts are posted there
BUT do note: Spammers on Facebook will always be blocked and reported to Facebook for spamming.

Note: only a member of this blog may post a comment.
