The New Blogger GUI, And The Disappearing Drafts List

Right now, a few blog owners who depend upon using the Draft status on posts, and who move posts in and out of Draft status regularly, are noting an oddity in the New GUI Posts menu.
I can't find my Draft posts - there's no menu selection!

Looking at the menu, one sees only "All".
So how do I identify and update my Draft posts?

There are no imported or scheduled posts, in the blog.



Fortunately, this is not hard to remedy. Just pick any one post, currently displayed as "Published".

  • Edit that one post, and hit "Revert to draft".
  • Edit that one post again, and hit "Update".

And there is that one post, with the others, again published - and the menu now will now have selections for "Draft" and "Published".

This is, unfortunately, a temporary fix - the next time you reload your dashboard, you'll see only "All" again. But, it's easy enough to repeat.

You may see the same behaviour with the "Imported" and "Scheduled" lists.

Also, if there are no "Draft", "Imported" or "Scheduled" posts, the relevant link won't be seen.

What would be the benefit of viewing an empty page, after all?

This is only a temporary fix, at least for me. On both of my accounts, I was able to get draft/scheduled back by doing this, but then by the next day, it was back to just having the "all" option and nothing more.

Thanks, Anthony,

Yes, it's only a temporary fix. Until Blogger corrects the problem, we'll just have to do it each time.

I just changed the URL in the end, after the # and pressed enter:

#allposts
#draftposts
#scheduledposts
#publishedposts

It makes the links show up again too. :)

Email and Password are not a Problem, verification code is, my sim Card is deleted and I can't even open it

Leonora,

Why is verification code a problem? Do you not have a properly registered backdoor?

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.
