I created a new page - but when you click on the link, you get bounced back to the Home page!
When you look at the blog with the problem, it's easy enough to verify the report - just look at the URL behind the link, for the most recent page created. Indeed, it points straight to the Home page (base URL for the blog).
When this happens, there is a very simple workaround. Just create another page, identical to the problem entry.
Thinking of the past 4 years since the Static Pages feature was added to Blogger, I am betting that I have seen this report maybe 2 dozen times. That is, just enough to know that this is a problem - but nowhere enough to detect any pattern.
- BlogSpot vs custom domain.
- Template Name.
- Template type ("designer" / "layout" vs "dynamic").
- Position of Pages gadget ("Tabs" vs "Sidebar").
- Geographical location of owner.
- Dynamic vs Static page entry.
- Number of pages.
If your blog is affected by this oddity - and you feel like taking the time, I'd like for you to first try resetting the "Pages1" gadget, similar to resetting the Post Template aka "Blog1". If that does not produce an improvement, then try the workaround - add an additional page, identical to the broken one. See if that solves the problem.
If the additional page works better, then you can delete or hide the previously created (broken) page. My apologies to you, if the problem page is the 19th (or possibly the 20th) static page.
If you're here, looking for help with this problem, and it is now 2016 (or later), my congratulations to you for finding your way here.
