One example of this is the Quick Edit option that lets us edit a post, or tweak a template feature, without having to access the Blogger dashboard. Sometimes, the icon is just not there - or maybe it's there, but when clicked on, nothing happens.
Quick Edit, like many Blogger features, is affected by both cookie and script filters - and many filters are domain based. Any domain based filter needs to allow cookies and scripts - both from "blogspot.com", and from any non BlogSpot domain that may be relevant.
Quick Edit, like many Blogger features, is designed to be used by blog members.
- The post edit "pencil" icon lets authors and administrators access the post editor, for the post in question.
- The template component edit "screwdriver / spanner / wrench" icon lets blog administrators access the template wizard, and tweak the template gadget in question.
Both features are vulnerable to cookie and script filters - and some filters may require multiple domain entries.
- A computer, located in or near a country that is subject to Country Code Alias redirection needs to have filters updated, to permit cookies and scripts relevant to the BlogSpot country code alias(es) involved.
- A computer, used by an owner of a blog newly published to a non BlogSpot domain needs to have filters updated, to permit cookies and scripts relevant to the non BlogSpot domain.
- Many filters are subject to update, by the publishers - with or without notice, to the owner of the computer in use.
Any change in these details - such as a country being added to country code aliasing, a blog being newly published to a custom domain, or a filter being updated by its provider - will cause the Quick Edit feature to stop working. When this happens, the feature will be unavailable until all relevant filters are properly updated. This will happen, without any action taken by the blog owner.
Again, I will remind you that Blogger Support cannot support the filters affecting your personal computer. Both blog owners, and blog readers, have to check all filters in their browsers, their computers and their networks.
