Changing Designated Reader List From "Only people I choose" Doesn't Work

The ability to designate readers for a given blog is a popular setting. Either "Only blog authors", or "Only people I choose" can be used to restrict readership to a limited, more appreciative audience, for any blog that's published to either BlogSpot or to a custom domain.

Some bloggers, recently, are finding difficulty in making their blogs public ("Anybody"), after having had the blog published as "Only people I choose". They can use the Settings - Permissions wizard, and supposedly make the change to "Anybody", but the public still can't view the blog.


The owner of "x-everlastinglove12.blogspot.com" states that the Permissions wizard is set to "Anybody". The URL suggests that we might have a "content warning" interstitial that's applicable here.



If your blog is having this problem, please provide some details, to help Blogger see a possible pattern.
  • What is the URL of the blog?
  • Does the blog have a "content warning" interstitial, either placed by you, or by Blogger?
  • Is or was the blog ever published externally (by FTP), or to a custom domain?
  • What browser and computer operating system did you use to set permissions?
  • Where are you located, and what ISP provides your service?



(Update 8/11): Could this be another appearance of the SingNet / SingTel problem?

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
