Blog Owners Find Static Pages Don't Allow Comments

Last week, blog owners discovered a new problem with commenting on their blogs.
I keep enabling comments on my pages, but Blogger keeps disabling them!

From having observed the reports of the problem, it appears to affect all blogs - both varying template type, and use of the different GUIs (Classic and New 2011), appear to be referenced.

Blogger Support has acknowledged the problem.
Thanks everyone for your patience, we're hoping to have a fix rolled out shortly.

(Update 10/19): This has been corrected.

(Update 11/09): Today, we see a new problem with static pages and comments - this one involving dynamic views.

Comments

Hi Chuck, tx for your response on blogger regarding the visibility of the comment box. I am following your advice and am checking if this comment will post on your site. I am confident that it will.

On your various blog sites, I did not however see any comment boxes like I would like to have on my blog...

cheers, Manuel

It's says the problem has been fixed. But as of Nov. 1, 2011 -- my blogger blog still default to no comment allowed unless I manually allow them each time.

I'm glad others are talking about this issue. Please, Blogger, fix this. Thanks!

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.
