Weird Sh** Happening on Google Blogspot...

    Ok, this has nothing to do with anything here on HP, but with Blogger.  But--the category here is "freeform discussion."  wink

    Today, there is weirdness going on.  I write my blog in English; I always have.  Today, there is an "auto-message" from their translation utility, informing me, "This blog is in Romanian.  Would you like to translate it?"

    Well, it is not in Romanian (which language I do not know at all), but in English, as always.  On the drop-down menu, the translation options are for many languages, including English, which strangely, is grayed-out. (Well, duh--maybe because it already is in English????!!!)

    All I can do to make the message to away is to select "Nope" on the choices.  (That's right, "nope" is the actual word they used!)

    Very odd, indeed...why would it erroneously inform me that the post is in some language other than what it is?  Has anyone else using Blogger had this happen?

    I can not say that I have that particular snafu with my Google blog, but lately it constantly has "a problem saving post."

    Have you lodged a help query with the bog G?

    You know you'd think since Google owns Blogger, it'd run a lot smoother than it does.

      Agreed...and their own Ad Sense program has problems on Blogger, as well...  Grrr..

    I just did a Blogger post. Google digested it without comment.

    Maybe it was just a passing Vorpal. Try posting another one and see what happens.

      I don't know--this wasn't a new post--it was an older one I was looking up to refer to someone...
      In fact, the other day, I just started a whole new blog..and did not see any snafus....

        Did you look up another older post? Maybe Google transferred your blog to Romania and hasn't gotten around to telling you yet. big_smile

            @all

            DzyMsLizzy's thread caused me to go to http://buzz.blogger.com/

            Clicking down on the menu at left actually has interesting info.

            Just thought I'd mention it. I'm at beginner level for Blogger, figure I'm not alone. smile

    Romanian is the language of many IT experts and hackers. BlogSpot has a lot of code behind what you see, and i suspect some of this code might use Romanian for inline comments. Either you are using some enhanced scripts or hacked code. Can you give the link? I can have a look...

      I am a techie know-nothing,  I don't know about "enhanced scripts" or anything else, for that matter.  I write on Blogger's built-in templates, the same as I do here on HP.   The only "code" I know is html for italic, underline, bold, font or color.  That is it.  And, as you know, we do not need to enter the code in our articles here--it's a built-in button..Same on Blogger.
      This is the link to the particluar article on which this happened, and I see it is still there..  mad

        That is odd! I get the message too saying that it is in Romanian and would I like to translate it (using Chrome).

        I have no idea how to fix it either.

          I would suggest checking your blog settings.  You may have accidentally changed the language setting.

            DzyMsLizzyposted 4 years ago in reply to this

            No--I don't even go to that page, and anyway, if I had, it would be showing up in that language, OR, I would be unable to write in English, having set it to some other language, I'm guessing....
            I can check, but I doubt that is the problem.  I think it's just one of many Google glitches.

              Edited to change: I agree with the others now. Advertisements on the calendar are in Romanian.  Thus that widget is probably over-riding your language setting.

          Thanks, IzzyM-- and it is NOT in Romanian, right?  It's English, just as I typed it.

        Remove the calendar widget! if you want to see it with your eyes, click on the month name. you will see that instead of the calendar you will have several news in romanian. Also have a look on the html source wink

    Your page is in Romanian :p

    Look in your left sidebar and you will see that underneath the "Daily calender" is a Facebook "Like" Widget to Romanii Online - a website for Romanians smile

    Remove widget as it is inserting a different Facebook Page link on each of your blog posts and I doubt it is performing as you expected when you decided you wanted a calender widget smile
