Do you need an invoice for your TypePad Pro subscription fee? At Account > Billing Info, you can review the transaction history for your account and view and print an invoice for each transaction. Additional information is available in the Knowledge Base.

Do you want more information on who is viewing your blog? TypePad makes it easy to take advantage of Google Analytics detailed statistics tool. Just go to Settings > Add-ons for your blog and enter the unique UA number from your Google Analytics account. Once you enter the UA number and click Save Changes, TypePad automatically adds the Google Analytics code to all the pages of your blog for tracking. See the Google Analytics article for more information.

Is there a way for the Preview to look more like the actual publishing image? Mine looks nothing like the final page. Thanks.

A Twitter User

I've had a bug with my Facebook badge for practically as long as I've had it up. The count that shows up on my page is inconsistent with the actual number of fans on Facebook. I created a developer account on FB just to get it fixed, but they haven't helped. Is there anything you can do on the typepad end?

I want to know if there is a way to empty my list of Trackback Spam.

Over the years, on several of my blogs, thousands of such trash have collected, and I don't have time to kill the little bastards permanently. ;-D
