Comment Disposal, With Pop-up Window Selected

Several bloggers have reported inability to remove comments from their blogs, apparently when comments are enabled with "Pop-up window" selected, because they will lack a trash can - which is normally provided for each comment. The alternate selections, "Full page" and "Embedded below post", do not appear to be affected by this problem.

If you use the "Edit Posts" menu, you'll have a list of all posts with comments. If you click on the appropriate "comment" link, you'll be temporarily put into single post mode, with the comments displayed below the post - and there will be a trash can available for each comment. If you find this inconvenient, you can permanently change the Comment Form Placement option, to show comments either as "Full page" or "Embedded below post".

(Update 10/28 12:00): Blogger Support is aware of the problem.
We'll keep working on this one. ... I'll check into this ASAP.

Comments

We have had this problem with the Blog for about a week now and the workaround (w/o the "Pop-Up" window) isn't feasible... it seems to annoy the Posters. We've had to enable comment moderation to keep from getting Spammed. It is a big inconvenience though because we have to stay on top of the Blog so that our Posters get their comments Published quickly, but in the meantime, we're getting very little sleep! Please help! We need this issue resolved soon!
Thank you!

Mary,

If you leave it in "Pop-up window", can't you delete the comments using the "Edit Posts" menu? And enabling comment moderation is part of normal life. IMHO, comment moderation should default to the "Enabled" setting.

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.

Make Your Blog Speak More Languages

I speak and write English (Americanised English, for you Brits). Until this weekend, my blogs were all published in English, and in English only. Thanks to the Kaspersky fiasco of Friday (Kaspersky is a Russian product), however, I was motivated to correct that shortcoming. This was, surprisingly, an easier task than I had anticipated. If you will examine the sidebar of my recipe blog , you will observe my multi-lingual translator, courtesy of Google Translator.
