Is the default of "The blog I need help with is" a bug or deliberate?
Only Staff and the support bot can detect the URL that bloopger enter when they post to the forums.
This is deliberate. It’s being supplied by the software. Yay for Staff!
Now those who fail to link their username to their blogs and/or who do not provide a URL will get support more quickly as we Volunteers don’t have to ask them:
“Please post an active link starting with http:// to the blog in question do we can examine it and assist you.”
Thank you Staff.
And what of people with a private blog who want to keep the URL private, but who don’t realise that it’s going to be posted here for all the world to see? I’m sorry, TT, normally I’d agree with you, but this time I don’t. I think it sucks. People should have the right not to publicise their blogs if they don’t want to. This way they get no choice.
I think it’s reasonable to believe the software is now picking up the URL we enter when we first create a forum thread.
Topic title: (be brief and descriptive)
Select the blog you need help with (drop-down)
Previously only Staff and the support bot could “see” the selection we made when we created a forum thread, which is why we always had to ask for the URL when answering support threads.
I repeat Thank you Staff!
