Can't take it any longer

OK. This has been driving me crazy for quite sometime. Can someone please tell me why blogger switches not only my pictures around but also all the little captions that I carefully put under each photo! It used to work perfectly for me but has been thoroughly screwing everything up lately. I have to go back several times after I publish and put spaces, delete spaces, copy and paste pictures, and it is driving me nuts! It looks right on compose mode, looks slightly different on edit mode, and then totally messed up after I publish it ! I can't remember exactly when it started but I'm thinking it might have started when I switched over from the urbansworld blog. Can someone please help me. This is enough to make a person quit blogging. Seriously.

I'm not very experienced at this blogging thing either, but I've noticed that it posts my pictures backwards of how I download them. I couldn't figure out how to get all the captions under the right picture, so I just wait for it to download all the pictures and then put in the text, which has worked:) Although lately (twice) if I go back in to edit after I post, it takes away all my posts and only leaves the gadgets!! I freaked out the first time and thought I'd deleted all my posts, but figured it out some how and got the posts back....not really sure what I did:)

Happens here too. The key is to place everything and switch over from compose mode to edit HTML and look at the spacing of the things there. Then preview it and if it looks good hit publish from the preview page and do not click back over to the compse page. Got that?? :)

This is one reason why I like to make collages of my pictures using PICASA. Then I only have to upload one or two pictures instead of 34. I write captions after I upload them. Good luck!

Giirrllllll,
I hear ya and am with ya!
I yell at my blogger constantly, my husband think I am nuts.
VERY frustrating.
Especially when it won't let you shuffle the pictures around.
I need the answer too.

Dowload windowns live writer. It is so much EASIER to type blog posts there. You upload your pictures and everything and then just publish them on your blog. You can also type up a post and save it to publish later or start 4 or 5 posts and come back to them when you have more time. That's what I use to post to blogger. It's faster and much more user friendly!

Yeah I have found that if you MOVE the pictures that it will mess with the HTML codes for those pictures as well.. Your best bet (if you don't know html very well) is to up load pictures in the REVERSE order that you want them to show up or upload all pics and shuffle them around. Then type around them. Otherwise you have to edit the Html which can be very confusing if you dont know how all that jazz works. your blog looks great though so you are doing something right!
