Another Day, Another Blogger Script Update

So I was happily updating this blog, The Real Blogger Status. I had just finished a labourious update to Image Test, and hit Publish. But instead of the old, familiar
Your blog post published successfully!
I got a surprise.




What?? Why Now???


Time to login again?

OK OK


So I logged in again, and eventually, the post seems to have published.

Blogger is many things, but seldom boring. It looks like they just pushed another script update. For some, this may mean a cache and cookies clearing exercise.

And after you clear cache and cookies, check browser settings and security on your computer. In particular, make sure that "*.blogger.com", not just "www.blogger.com", is a trusted web site. And finally, update your bookmarks, and make sure that you login to Blogger properly.

Now Blogger makes changes to its code frequently, and too often causes problems when they do this. Sometimes, they admit to causing problems.

And sometimes, you can cause your own problems. Besides the many settings on your computer (discussed above), you need to be aware of which script you're using, for instance, when editing a post.

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.
