Error on Blogger Dashboard

Wow. Blogger isn't working right now that my computer decided to update itself to IE11.  I get an error every time I open the dashboard, and it's working oddly (i.e., not working) at other times as well.  That's not the Wow part - that happens, right? - no big deal to set compatibility mode. When I did that, I got a blank white screen, which was somewhat worse....

When I checked the error reports for Blogger it turns out they know it's a problem and don't care. They recommend using a different browser. I recommend using different blogging software. I used to be a web developer, and I have to tell you it's just not that difficult to make a web page work for all browsers.

I am super annoyed.  And I just don't love Wordpress. Any other suggestions?



  1. I suggest you abandon Internet Explorer and use Chrome.
    Firefox is another option, but I used that at work (their recommendation) and didn't really like it.

  2. My dashboard would only show one person's post at a time last week, instead of the normal stream. I use an alternate reader sometimes, though, so I was able to find most people's posts. Yeah, I don't think Google much cares about Blogger anymore. I think they'd like to herd everyone over to Google plus, which isn't a very good option for creating original content, in my opinion. Though the page views there are considerably higher. :)

  3. I use Firefox. Blogger doesn't play well with IE.
    And I stopped using the Dashboard years ago. Feedly is another option.

  4. I like Blogger best, and Wordpress blogs do not appeal to me. I do have Chrome, but only use it occasionally. It does seem every time we update something, it becomes incompatible with something else.

    When I used to get a blank page on compatibility pages, when you first click it, then I would hit refresh and it would come up. It's worth a try.

  5. I refuse to switch to Chrome because it enhances Google's ability to know your every thought and use it for evil and/or profit.

    As a software developer I can tell you that you kind of have to go out of your way to write some bad code to make a web page throw an error on only one browser version.

  6. Having the urge to design and write some blogging software that is not annoying to use . . . wait, no, I need to go force myself to write a chapter.

  7. Sorry you are having problems with your bog. I recently had issues too and it was hard to get an answer. It took me forever to figure out where I had to get help, as they don't have a call center or email service for support. I hope you find a solution soon. Hang in there.

  8. DG - Refreshing the page after switching to compatibility view doesn't work, although it should.

    Murees - I did get the answer: Blogger is not supporting IE, which means they don't care and aren't going to make any changes. Lots of people have complained.

  9. After reading everyone's comment, I have no clue other than see if you can download LiveWire. That's how I used to post to Blooger.

  10. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

    The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:
