? Has anyone else using the Safari browser been experiencing problems with Blogger? This post took a longer than usual time today as I kept getting the message: "Safari cannot connect to the server" after selecting Design in the header bar. I found a workaround, but it was cumbersome. I'm not sure why this issue started, but hope it's a temporary glitch and not something that will make future posting and updating difficult. A secondary issue is that when I went to update this post, some parts of the original wording had disappeared, very strange indeed. I apologize, in advance, if you find some incomplete sentences.
What to do?
I checked online and followed many suggestions including resetting the network on the iPad, turning it off and on, shutting down our home modem and turning on, clearing the cache of stored visited websites.
Not one, zero, none of these suggestions worked and I tried all of them. The issue remained. But, it's been resolved and that message no longer displays and I can connect to the server.
Reverting to legacy blogger and ditching the so-called new and improved version which I had switched to a couple of weeks ago, but wasn't completely comfortable using. In comments on this blog and others,
The same was happening for me. Sometimes text would mysteriously not be there when the post was published, even though it was in the draft version. This happened several times when I was working on the previous post in the new interface. Oddly enough, it was always the same wording. Reworking the affected paragraphs and checking back several times finally resolved that issue.
A few other new Blogger interface issues for me: comments could no longer be marked as spam and then deleted. Preview wasn't always working when a draft was in process. Full-size photo images would not align left easily.
My Plan . . .
Until the bugs (and any/all other glitches) are worked out, I'm staying with the older Legacy Blogger interface as long as possible, no more switching to new and unimproved. That means until I get kicked off and forced to update. Hopefully, the folks behind Blogger will resolve some of these issues, and soon.
How about anyone else?
