Please Blogger, Restore My Deleted Team Blog!

Last week, I wrote about some exciting news - you now can recover a blog that you deleted, on your own, without any help from Blogger Support! Bloggers all over the world breathe a sigh of relief!

So in an online discussion, someone idly asked
...can any admin use the undelete button..and do all admins get the undelete button when the blog is gone?
and my immediate thought was
Of course not! A deleted blog is locked to the deleting account.
But, I decided to test that idea. And, I'm glad that I decided that.

I took my test blog, and made it a team blog. Bonnie was kind enough to accept membership, and do the test. And, did I get a surprise.

Look, she deleted the blog, and I see it in my dashboard.



And she saw it in her dashboard.



And, I undeleted it.



And now, it's working again.


So, not only can you recover a deleted blog, but any member of a team can recover a deleted team blog.

Kudos, Blogger, you thought this one out correctly.

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.
