The Blogger Wishlist feature no longer exists.

Blogger hasn't said why or if it'll ever return.

EMERGENCY STEPS

Kick-starting The Blog
1. Refresh (F5) or Ctrl-F5
2. Clear cache (delete temporary Internet files) and cookies in Tools-Internet Options.
3. Add a question mark to the end of your blog's internet address in the address box and see if it will show the latest update. (Can also be done with other people's url's in the address window.)
4. Republish (if in classic Blogger)
5. Reboot
6. Log out and log back in again (may change to an untroubled server)
7. Change or reload the browser (IE, Firefox, others)
8. Try a different computer, or see if you can duplicate the problem or avoid it in a post in another blog (make a test blog, whether in the same account or a second account, that's not public so nobody will see you screwing around!)

---Not necessary to do all of these at once!---

Blogger may make problems for some computers about accepting cookies, especially when you are using the new versions of Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. Difficulties with accepting scripts may be caused by security systems, antivirus programs, firewalls, and some add-ons. Check all your settings.

You may need to change your browser settings, or to list www.blogger.com and blogger.com as "trusted sites" in your Internet Options-Security so that scripting can occur.

Header Picture Code

Unscrambling Blogger photo code for Header picture code

Blogger's picture icon is good for regular pictures in the post or in the sidebar, but it's overdone for the purpose of putting a photo in your header. You don't need both large and small versions for the header.

What Blogger may give you when you upload the photo to a post (Save it, but don't Publish it!) will resemble this:

<a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AVxLoZ0mR_0/Rb_W1nLeYQI/AAAAAAAAAIg/qCR5JYhLf6o/s1600-h/dgblues.jpg"><img id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5025971925707284738" style="DISPLAY: block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; CURSOR: hand; TEXT-ALIGN: center" alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AVxLoZ0mR_0/Rb_W1nLeYQI/AAAAAAAAAIg/qCR5JYhLf6o/s400/dgblues.jpg" border="0" /></a>

What you would need to extract is this:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AVxLoZ0mR_0/Rb_W1nLeYQI/AAAAAAAAAIg/qCR5JYhLf6o/s1600/dgblues.jpg

If you didn't notice on your own, the difference between the red code at the top and the red code above this paragraph is that the -h has been deleted after S1600.



SMALL IMAGE: The url contained in the blue text (marked S400) is the smaller of the images and will need no correction--just the code, such as this, shown above:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AVxLoZ0mR_0/Rb_W1nLeYQI/AAAAAAAAAIg/qCR5JYhLf6o/s400/dgblues.jpg

Assuming that the S400 is actually small and not just less than the large one, you could enter that code, as shown, into the Photo Url as your Profile Photo.


END.
