Quick! am going to type this fast in case I lose my posting ability again. After 24 hours of intense frustration, I discovered at Blogger Help (which isnt much help) that many other bloggers are having the same problem I am. When one clicks on New Post there is a circle spinning in the middle of the white page as if it is trying to load something but nothing happens. You cant post or accomplish anything.
Some bloggers are stuck in compose mode and cant access HTML. In my case, I somehow got stuck in HTML mode and couldnt access Compose mode. After a bit, I was unable to post anything, OR edit anything, AND couldnt even access my drafts. Little spinning circle, no way to get back into Compose mode, which was grayed out on the screen.
I did everything blogger suggested - emptied my cache, changed browsers, asked them for help....nothing changed.
On a whim, I just went into settings and changed it from updated editor back to old editor. Some of the people on the forum said they did this and it wasnt satisfactory. But at least for now I have my posting ability back while blogger works out the problem. They say they are "aware of it". I just wanted to let you know, if you are having anything similar going on, that it is a blogger problem. If I disappear once again you'll know my blogging ability stopped once again. Hopefully not.
OMG - the whole screen just filled up with black lines. Yoiks, I had better post this fast.
Is it paranoid to think we are being punished for venting about the word verification changes? hee hee.
