Okay, one last test. Though I am not promising this is my last test.

I predict that if there is only one word in a post title and it's a normally omitted word, it will be used in the HTML filename regardless.

I imagine they have some extra little bit of logic in the Blogger code to handle this situation.


Interesting! They actually don't keep the omitted word, but substituted a generic "blog-post.html" as the HTML filename.

I imagine no one reading these test posts think they are remotely interesting, but I'm all geekily proud of myself. Good job, L'il Splotchy!

It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.

I don't know why I said that. Fail.

Anyway--very strange that they deleted only the one article in the title and gave you a generic title part in the HTML. Kinda confusing.

The result surprised me a little bit, but not entirely.

I have seen other bloggers publish posts that have no post title, and I think I remember noticing that the post's HTML filename was "blog-post.html".

In this test case, Blogger threw away the omitted word, and as a result had nothing left for the filename, so they resorted to some sort of default HTML filename.
