OK, I know that you're tired of reading this, and I am no less tired of typing the same shite over and over. But I can tell you again that publishing does work. And now I can show you.

I tried publishing my friend's blog, 4 times with no success, at 22:15 PST. Then she IMed me at 22:30 to tell me that she had just published, and on her first try yet. And here is her blog, that you may examine in its completeness.

Note the time stamp on my post, this afternoon just before I noted Graham's status post. And since noting THAT post, both I and the owner of the test blog have been trying to repeat my success. And have now succeeded.

We will probably leave her blog as is until this is resolved. I think I have convinced her to put all updated thoughts on her new blog.

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
