Blog Owners Using Safari Cannot Access Dashboard

We're seeing a number of problem reports, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue, from blog owners unable to use the dashboard.
I can't write a new post, view my Stats, or posts on the Blogger dashboard. Whenever I open these pages, it keeps loading like forever - and now I've been unable to update my blog or view my Stats.
The Blogger dashboard is simply not loading, for these blog owners.

Almost all such reports mention the Safari browser, as the browser being used.


"Whenever I open these pages, it keeps loading like forever..."



The current solution seems to be to use a different browser. We recommend Chrome or Firefox.

As an alternative, it may be possible to access various dashboard utilities directly, avoiding the dashboard menu.

The problem has been referred to Blogger Engineers.

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?".

Add A Custom Redirect, If You Change A Post URL

When you rename a blog, the most that you can do, to keep the old URL useful, is to setup a stub post , with a clickable link to the new URL. Yo! The blog is now at xxxxxxx.blogspot.com!! Blogger forbids gateway blogs, and similar blog to blog redirections . When you rename a post, you can setup a custom redirect - and automatically redirect your readers to the post, under its new URL. You should take advantage of this option, if you change a post URL.
