FAQ: New Dashboard on Blogger

Blogger has rolled out a new dashboard. You can read about it at this link on the Blogger Blog.


The new dashboard takes you directly to the blog that has the most recent updates to it, however you can go to any of your other blogs by clicking on the down arrow on the top left area where the current blog name is listed. See image.

















As all changes do, this new dashboard might take some getting used to. You can give feedback directly to the Blogger team via the feedback link on the dashboard (lower right on page). We recommend using this link for feedback as it goes directly to the Blogger team.

If you are having issues with viewing the new dashboard or are getting error messages, please report them in the forum as you would any other issue. 

NOTE: older browsers might have some compatibility issues with the new dashboard so trying to update your browser might be the quickest way to fix most issues.

Appreciation on the Blogger Help Forum


Always feels good when you help someone and they really appreciate it...makes all the hours worth it!!! See quoted text below!

"Thank you so much!!!! Your information made it so easy. I'm up and running.
I am glad you sent the information on getting started as well. I'll be reading that tonight.
More than anything I appreciate your answers tone. I feel like the old joke from IT support-"Is it plugged in?" You must get a lot more challenging questions but you treated me with respect and grace. That really means a lot. If you have a supervisor that I can sing your praises to let me know, I'd be glad to. If you do this because you like to, I think you are made for helping people. I needed this for an online class I'm taking (don't laugh, they take computer illiterates in the class. They are used to "Adult Learners").
Again, Thank You so much for your help."

URL For Locating Archive Albums In Google Photos

Now that Google has once again changed how they are handling photos across Google products, the Blogger albums (and I assume albums created in other products other than Google Photos) are hidden from the album list on Google Photos.

This is a good thing in that it keeps people from accidentally deleting all the images in their blogs thinking that the album was being shared or visible to anyone but them before, however it has also caused some issues for those that want access to those images to either change them or delete them from their blog.

https://get.google.com/albumarchive

This link will get you to the location that shows all albums on your account. Note that care should be used in this area because you can affect all of your products if you do even a bit of fiddling around (even just moving images between albums).

Some testing needs to be done by yours truly to determine what happens when a picture is used on a blog from the regular Google Photos albums and if deleting a post on the blog with an image in it automatically deletes it from the album as well or if a double delete needs to be done.

At a later date, though...mostly just wanted to get this URL up for my own reference.

Information for Users getting Moved Permanently Snippets

They need to set HTTPS redirect to No to resolve this.
The posts require a rescrape for Facebook, because FB scrapes a post only once.
