Beta is Betta?

I have worked out some very important problems, thanks to kingdavid, by switching to beta. I can make bold print, italics, place an URL in a sentence that you can click on so it will take you to that site, and I now have a list of links. So, beta is betta, in some ways.

I thought I solved my problem with how to click and drag photos and text within a post. But, it still gives me problems. I can highlight, click and drag, but not if it requires scrolling down the page. Photo downloading onto posts has been OK until blogger suddenly freezes and won't allow it.

And, I still can't get a photo on my profile. Ach. The add page feature for the square that appears just above, About Me and Links, etc. offers a photo download. When I go to get a photo on there, it allows me to browse, go into my computer, open the file with my photo, and upload, but the circling thing with the exclamation point in the middle of the triangle thing just keeps circling and circling and never stops. The upload isn't complete then.

Now when I want to back up from leaving comments, there is a window to contest with that asks to select a button saying, yes, I want to gravitate away from this page and it's annoying.

And, since beta, there have been far too many freezes where a window comes up saying it's a google error, and the server is having a problem, "wait 30 seconds."

I am still wondering how to add music to my blog, such as Kev did on his blog, and how to customize the background of my blog. I want red, white and blue in my background. If anyone can tell me how, I'd appreciate it.

I always save photos to my computer and then add them to the post. This way I'm not using a URL at all. I don't know if this will work for you, but you could give it a try.

Oh, and by the way, the 75 stands for 1975, my birth year. I explained it differently in my comment section just to be silly.

I also speculated about the meaning of 75 and came up with: birthdate.

I save photos to my computer, but blogger is just not downloading according to what they say. See beta blogger's add page element feature.
