Initial Diagnostics:

>> Blogger Employee has associated these errors, as earlier, with Singnet customers in Singapore. We have also heard from people in areas near Singapore, most likely using ISPs who get service through Singnet.

To confirm the latter possibility, provide a TraceRt log, in your next online post, when you ask for assistance.

>> Some Bloggers reporting this have also reported the distorted / unusable dashboard or Post Editor toolbar.

>> As a workaround to the problem, Singnet customers can use a proxy server, "proxy.singnet.com.sg". If your ISP gets service through Singnet, you may have this option. We note that people not getting service directly through Singnet cannot use "proxy.singnet.com.sg".

(Note): This will affect all of your web access through this browser, not just Blogger. If other services are negatively affected by your using the proxy, you'll want to contact Singnet directly. Or you may be able to use a separate browser for Blogging, for a while.

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.
