Yes I have the blog archive set to “monthly” and enable post page = yes.
I have a lot of pictures in my blog (if that makes a difference). One of the months I was trying to backup has 11 posts, but I only get 4 in my backup. I have been following the proceedure that you outline on your DVD that I purchased at one of your seminars.
I just tried again to do a backup on the month where I have 11 posts, and I only get the last 4. Is there a different method I can use to backup my blog? Does it make a difference if I use Mozilla FireFox to do the original post and then go to Internet Explorer to do the backup?
I am not very technical when it comes to computers!!!!
There are a couple different ways to backup … they serve different purposes. I assume you are using the 'Save Page As …' method.
The other way is to use Blogger's Export command.
So .. let me ask – Is your purpose to create a CD or some other computer file to view your blog offline? Or are you just trying to be safe by backing up your blog so, if anything ever happened to it, you can restore?
If you're just trying to be safe – Blogger's Export command is easy and pretty foolproof. The video for that is named Backup w/Export.
If you really want the complete backup method, including the actual picture files and you can't get it to work with Internet Explorer, you can try Firefox (File, Save Page As) or Chrome (Tools – the wrench icon – Save Page As)
