On the Move

Published by under Office and tagged: ,

It seemsĀ that Edublogs are no longer supporting embeddable content for their free blogs :-( Widgets, etc just disappeared over night!!!!

…..

Unfortunately we’ve had to disable embedding of most code by non Pro members as sploggers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_blog) were using JS redirects on free blogs :( There are *no* other blog hosts that allow embedding like we have done so far and we’ve been forced to limit it due to this abuse by spammers.

Not sure that I agree that *no* other blog hosts allow the same level of embedding. I have been using Blogger for my Free Resources for Education blog and have been able to embed exactly the same content if not more!

…..

I just love using embeddable content so I guess I’ll either have to pay up or move on. Hmm, well for the moment, Blogger here I come.

…..

I will be redirecting my Feedburner RSS feed to the new blog address so it should be a smooth transition for those readers already using that feed. Anyone using the Edublogs RSS feed will have to switch to the Feedburner RSS feed.

…..

I will also be transferring all previous posts to the new blog so that all the content can be searched and accessed from the one place.
