Where Is The Template Designer Wizard?

The new Designer Templates were released over a month ago, and still not everybody knows how to access them. Almost daily, we see the plaintive query
Where in my Blogger settings can I access the new Blogger template designer?
and to be sure, it seemed, at one time, a bit tricky.


(Update 2010/06/10): The Template Designer is now a production Blogger feature.

The Template Designer is now part of Production (Orange) Blogger, and is accessible from the dashboard "Template" page - or the navbar "Design" link.



If you click on "Design" from the navbar, you get the "Template" page, where you find the "Customize" button.

There it is - "Template Designer".



Just login to Blogger, click on "Template", and hit the "Customize" button.

You can't miss it.

Cheri / Debbi,

You have a problem with the Template Designer script - most likely a security setting problem.

I fixed it before I got your note this afternoon. I have Explorer 9.whatever. I found a compatibility view for the browser. I set it for Blogger and other sites. I can now fiddle around in the Template Designer. Luckily, I did not have to fiddle with my security settings,

I fixed it before I could let you know and I got your reply. I found a comaptibility view in Explorer 9.whatever. I set it to work with Blogger and other sites. Luckily, I did not have to mess with my security settings. Thank you!

Shopgirl,

We need to diagnose this, with you posting in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
