We had intended to only do this once a month, around the 15th.,
butt soooo many people had questions and there was ONE in Pawticular
that was really troublesome. We talked it over and decided that we
needed to do this again today.
Here is the troublesome question.. in a nutshell (not a PeeCan though) :
Question #1. Please Discuss Track Backs... I have had a
situation that involved Track Backs and I want to know what I can do.
FRANKIE Says: Well now... furst of all I (Frankie Furter)
did not EVEN know what that was about so I had to look it up on Google
and THEN go to My Dashboard and the Comments thingy to see what IT
said. Here is what I found...
At the bottom of SOME blog posts you may have noticed a little blue
thing that says... Link to this Post.
This is MOSTLY intended for Businesses to Increase their Web Site
Traffic. When it is clicked on YOUR comments and a bit of YOUR
blog Post will be put up on the blog of the person/business that
clicked on it. NOW... that MAY be seen by some as Stealing your
words thoughts or pictures. This is the issue.
I am going to Quote now directly from my Settings Tab under the
Comments Tab.. BLOGGER SAYS: " What it all works out to is a way of
expanding the Comment Feature such that related discussions on other
sites can be included along with the regular comment on a post."
Also.... still quoting Blogger ... "If it is set on YOUR blog you
will see "links to this post" next to the comment link for each post."
Now then... For NO reason other than my own amusement, I did
click on HIDE one day about a year ago. It did not seem to make
any difference so I have just left it that way. However... I did
just learn that it can still be USED by someone... UNLESS you also go
down to the next spot BELOW the Back Links (HIDE) AND then Click
New Posts Do NOT Have BackLinks...... then go to the bottom
of the page and click on Save Settings.
In closing I would like to say that I now have... On my Settings /
Comments Tab page HIDE and Do Not have Back Links BOTH checked.
I don't think we should take things from each other... without
pawmission. It is just not NICE.
PUDDLES Says: I don’t think I could possibly add to anymores of
Frankie’s answer cuz dat was purty thorough. Howevers, I gonna add dat
if you choose to do da trackback thingy to a blog that really don’t
haves anything to do withs your blog…well, dat just ain’t right cuz it
ultimately hurts dat blog you linked to in their Google ranks…and
there are some blogs dat do want their blogs to go further than just
in our community. Unfortunately, if blogs are linking your blog to
theirs then you may have to disable your trackbacks so this doesn’t
Question #2 How do you set blog up so it does NOT accept Anonymous Comments
Frankie Says: Click on Accept Registered Users
Puddles Says: Well, I don’t guess I could possibly add to dat
except…you go into your settings and click on da comments part…dats
hows you get theres (Frankie should haves told ya’ll dat but thanks to
me, I did).
Question #3 How do you Email an answer (comment) so they don't
think you are SPAM ... if they don't know Your email Addy and Email
Frankie Says: I put (From Frankie Furter) into the SUBJECT line.
Puddles Says: Hehehe…sorry, I hads to giggle at dat one cuz I am so
bad about NOT including a subject…but, I am working on doing beters
bouts it…besides,who would possibly think an email from ME was spam,
other than Sam and Pippen?
Question #4 Most people say that they do Not go back to blogs to
read ANSWERS to Their questions. How should this be handled?
Frankie Says: It seems that it would be BEST to take the time to go
to the Questioners blog and answer them... OR.... you could make a
note to yourself (hehehe) and answer it In your NEXT Blog. I kind
of like doing that, butt sometimes it takes me several days (like 87)
to get around to it... Like answering the Tornado Questions the
Puddles says: Ain’t really know ways to properly answer dis
question…you either go back and get your answer or you don’t (fur
those dat answer it on their blog)…or wait and see if da blog does a
post about it. You kinda haves to get to “know” which blogs actually
leave responses in their blog comments…and I don’t just incase you
Question #5... If I use Word Verification (Captcha is what Wordpress
calls it) should I still do Comment Moderation or Vise Versa?
Frankie Says: Well now PAWSONALLY I can see absolutely NO reason
what so ever to do BOTH. I can't imagine EVER needing to do BOTH
Puddles Says: I concur, dat would be a no. (Frankie, can I haves a
piece of dat deer jerky nows?)
Question #6 Is is OKAY to save a few Awards and post them all at once?
Frankie Says: I think that if you have already remembered to THANK
those who gave the awards to you.. It would be GRRRREAT to put Two or
more on the same post.
Puddles Says: Absolutely! I thinks a lot of blogs do dis now cuz it
seems to be easier to combines in one post.
Question #7... Do you have any problems with SPAM or Anonymous
Comments .. since You do not do Word Varification (Captcha)?
Frankie Says: Please go back to my post from Tuesday Oct. 19 to see
the Stats that I put up about MY PAWSONAL EXPERIENCE with SPAM .
Puddles Says: I don’t haves any problems whatsoevers with spam on my
blog since I added da no anonymous comments feature.
Question #8 This is a WordPress question ... The askers wonders
if some people have trouble leaving comments on WP due to .. NO
Frankie Says: I can't answer this one... Perhaps Puddles will
know... OR... Maybe some WordPress users could answer in a comment
Puddles Says: Hehehe, I can’t really answer dis one eithers cuz I has
never evers had a problem leaving a comment on a Wordpress blog.
Question #9 About Awards.. Are they usually given to a Certain
Dog(s)? The questioner has noticed that SOME just put it up for
Whoever Wants to Take it. and wants to know... Should they be given
PERSONALLY or not??
Frankie Says: Well, if it is a NEW Award and only wants me to give
it to One to Three others... I will then Name the ones to receive it.
BUTT... if the award has been AROUND AND AROUND AND AROUND... what I
(PAWSONALLY) like to do is... find a NEW blogger furend and give it
to them.. and only them... as a way of making them feel WANTED and
WELCOME in Blogville.
(On a Pawsonal Note: I can STILL remember the day that Henry
the Dog gave me my furst ever award. I thought I had really made the
Big time then. GAWD I miss Henry.)
Puddles Says: I think dis is kind of on a personal level…you can leave
it to yourself to decide how you want to gives an award. Sometimes I
just tell everybuddy to takes it cuz I don’t wanna hurt anybuddies
feelings. But, if you feel you need to do da appropriate stuffs than I
would prolly recommend giving da awards to da newest bloggies to makes
them feel welcomed heres and all dat good stuffs. (Oh dis deer jerky
is deeeeelish Frankie!)
Now then... for being soooooo patient and reading all this stuffs... here is a little something for you to chew on: THIS October has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays..... and I am told that it only happens once every 823 years. I don't know about that Pawt... butt it is interesting about the 5 of each thingy, don't you think?
PeeS... My mom says I have to tell you this (Boooooooring thingy)... I know better than to say DeerS butt it is MY blog and I don't care.... I LIKE to say deerS sorta like sayin' my WIMMEN (Ravishing Ruby and Pretty Penny).
AND now.... DOUBLE PeeS.... I got a Very wonderful Howl O Ween card from the best Chair Sitting Dachshund in the world... and I am Thrilled. I'll show it to you... SOOOOON. Butt in the meantime can you guess who it is from????
