Features in which Blogger Lacks
- No PHP support – Blogger comes with HTML and CSS but doesn’t supports PHP which is well known as most developed computer language. With PHP we are able to create great things which can give our blogs an enhanced and unique looks. Many bloggers and website creators need PHP for their need. If blogger introduces PHP it will be great and can attract many other bloggers towards it who were using other platforms.
- Stand alone pages – Blogger provides stand alone pages but with a limited no and that is 20. So, definitely it posses less no of standalone pages than other blogging platforms and it lacks here.
- Uploads – With blogger we are unable to upload files other than photo and videos such as mp3, exe, rar, jar etc. if you want to upload them in your blog you have to upload it to some other free upload server such as rapidshare etc and then have to place that link in your post where you want it for your readers to download .
