Blog Owners Reporting Inability To Update Various Template Gadgets

For several weeks, we've been seeing a light but steady stream of reports from blog owners unable to update various template gadgets, on their blogs. This blog, personally, has the full page Topics Index, which needs to be updated with half a dozen newly created labels.

In some cases, the "Save" button may appear inactive or dim; in other cases, the owner will see the "Saving..." status endlessly displayed, while the wizard appears to "hang".

We have a problem rollup in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, where we are collecting details from the blog owners reporting.
  1. What is the URL of the blog? If published to a non BlogSpot URL, both the BlogSpot and domain URLs may be relevant.
  2. Is this a team administered blog, or are you the sole administrator / owner?
  3. What is your Blogger / Google ProfileID?
  4. Does the blog use a dynamic template, or a non dynamic template?
  5. Do you use a Classic Blogger GUI, or a New (2011) Blogger GUI?
  6. What is the Title of the Gadget that you are Saving, unsuccessfully (please copy the title, accurately, from the popup window, before hitting Cancel)?
  7. What browser (name, and version, please) are you using?
If you are observing this problem, with your blog, providing as many details as possible may help Blogger Support focus on your problem, by identifying a pattern.


(Update 2012/04/27): Following an update last month, the problem was significantly reduced - though not eliminated.

As of 3/30/2012, I am still experiencing this problem - and now the topic seems to be missing from the Help forum! Following the "problem rollup" link takes us to a generic "Blogger Problem Forum" page.

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?".

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.
