Blog Owners Reporting The New Blogger GUI Display Is Garbled

We have recently seen a few reports in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, concerning the New GUI display, which is broken for some blog owners.
When I login to Blogger, the interface doesn't display properly. Everything is shifted and some buttons appear to be missing.
The reporting volume, mentioning this symptom, is low - but it's not random, or zero.

From what we can tell, this problem started shortly after the latest Microsoft Windows updates, a week ago. Microsoft Answers: Computer Display Messed up After Restart discusses this problem, and essentially suggests that you should download video drivers from the vendor of the video device in your computer - and to not depend upon Microsoft, to provide you updated third party drivers.

If you are unable to use the Blogger Interface because the display is unreadable, with components missing or mislocated, you're going to have to update the video drivers on your computer, using drivers obtained from the manufacturer - not from Microsoft. This is not a problem caused by Blogger.

If the browser involved in the problem is Internet Explorer, you also may need to check your Compatibility View setting.

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):

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
