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.

Thanks! Confirms my own suspicions.

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):
