Changing Designated Reader List From "Only people I choose" Doesn't Work

The ability to designate readers for a given blog is a popular setting. Either "Only blog authors", or "Only people I choose" can be used to restrict readership to a limited, more appreciative audience, for any blog that's published to either BlogSpot or to a custom domain.

Some bloggers, recently, are finding difficulty in making their blogs public ("Anybody"), after having had the blog published as "Only people I choose". They can use the Settings - Permissions wizard, and supposedly make the change to "Anybody", but the public still can't view the blog.


The owner of "x-everlastinglove12.blogspot.com" states that the Permissions wizard is set to "Anybody". The URL suggests that we might have a "content warning" interstitial that's applicable here.



If your blog is having this problem, please provide some details, to help Blogger see a possible pattern.
  • What is the URL of the blog?
  • Does the blog have a "content warning" interstitial, either placed by you, or by Blogger?
  • Is or was the blog ever published externally (by FTP), or to a custom domain?
  • What browser and computer operating system did you use to set permissions?
  • Where are you located, and what ISP provides your service?



(Update 8/11): Could this be another appearance of the SingNet / SingTel problem?
