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.

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?".

Embedded Comments And Main Page View

The option to display comments, embedded below the post, was made a blog option relatively recently. This was a long requested feature - and many bloggers added it to their blogs, as soon as the option was presented to us. Some blog owners like this feature so much, that they request it to be visible when the blog is opened, in main page view. I would like all comments, and the comment form, to be shown underneath the relevant post, automatically, for everyone to read without clicking on the number of comments link. And this is not how embedded comments work.

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.
