Distorted / Unusable Dashboard or Post Editor Toolbar

Several Bloggers have stated that the dashboard or toolbar area in the post editor is distorted or out of shape, and the buttons don't work.

Blogger Employee seems to believe that the problem originates with the Blogger's personal computers.
I looked around and things displayed normally for me. Therefore, I'm inclined to think it's your browser that's causing these problems.


And later has started asking for diagnostics.
Could you folks tell me what your blog URL is? Also, as Ed-T has done, will you tell me if this happens in all browsers you use?


>> Some Bloggers reporting this have also reported the Server Error 1-500 ("1-500-nn").

>> If you are a Singnet customer in Singapore, there is a possible workaround for the problem.

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?".

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.

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.
