This release is now out of date. Please click on the Releases tab and get the new version. Thank you.
Updated to clean up the initial behavior, when creating "new settings" on the first load.
Now it will not prompt you to save the settings if you haven't made any changes.
For example, you start the new version and then File/Open your existing BBSettings file.
This version will not ask you to save your previous settings, which are empty, before opening that file.
- Updated to better handle errors during the "Getting next chunk,..." process
Fixed a bug where the retry wasn't happening.
Added more error logging to the Backing Up Posts process
Fixed bug with a blog entry not having a "Post" field.
Updated to use a better method of getting the blog URL when using the "Get Feed URL" button.
Some Posts No Longer Have Title Elements (Blogger Issue)
Fixed an error that would occur when determing a post file name if there was no "title" element in the post's atom XML.
If no title is found, "NoTitle-" + Published date is used (NoTitle-20061204102200)
This used to work fine, but something seems to have changed on the Blogger side of the world.
When I look at the "NoTitle..." posts from my blog, they DON'T have "official" title's anymore.
But I have old backups of those posts and they DID have title's... At least then they did then...
When I go to the raw "self" feed for a post (say href="http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5655811/posts/default/106026670028866448") there's no title there anymore either.
So the GData.Net library is not broken, Blogger is.
Added an override to override Published dates for restored posts (Work Item #13734)
Updated dates cannot be overridden...
Fixed bug where the Restore form could be "Ok"'d without entering a password.
When selecting files to restore, ".Comment.XML" are filtered out (since comment restore is not yet supported). (Work Item #12969)
Updated to restore labels/categories when restoring posts. (Work Item #13628)
Updated to restore labels/categories when restoring posts.
Changed Comment URL calculation to handle Service.Post feeds
Updated the GData.Net (Google Data API for .NET) library to the latest release version (188.8.131.52)
Moved to VS2008 Development environment
Added a manifest (for Vista... not required, but VS2008 made it easy...)
Added additional error checking and logging to the Custom Path Builder process
Updated to use the Service.Post URL (if available) instead of the ServiceFeed (aka Alternate) (Work Item #11853)
This was done to avoid/resolve FeedBurner redirection issues.
ServiceFeed (aka Alternate) feed would be something like http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default (previously used)
Service.Post feed would be something like http://www.blogger.com/feeds/BlogID/posts/default
The Service.Post feed can be manually seen via the Blog's header ("view source"), Link element with the rel="service.post" attribute.
Added a "Get Feed URL" button to "Manually add a Blogger blog" on the Blog List form
Changed the "Custom Path Builder" button caption to "Backup File Naming" (Work Item #12690)
Change the title of the "Path Builder" form to "Backup File Naming Options" (Work Item #12690)
Made the default size of the "Backup File Naming Options" form smaller. (Work Item #12690)
Now the last used/selected Blog in the Available Blogs list will be remembered and restored. (Work Item #12689)
Updated to support for private, non-feed publishing blogs.
This will require the user to log into Blogger though...
Added a Right-Click Edit feature to the Blog List form
Now you can edit existing blog list items
Added "Log into Blogger when backing up this feed" checkbox to the Blog List form, Manual tab
With this you can indicate that you want to log into Blogger when backing up the selected Blog
