|When the blog header image you decided you don't like after all won't let itself be removed, what are you supposed to do? People say their photo is stuck there and won't be removed! I believe them, but I've barely had it happen to me, so my experience has been of small proportions! |
I only had a stuck header image once. What did I do? I panicked, of course. WHAT was it doing? So I tried everything that I ever heard of or could vaguely imagine might work!.
I did break it loose at last, but not before I'd gotten so flustered that I very unscientifically lost track of the order in which I did all these things. I can't even guess which one really "fixed" it. I nearly feel that it just gave up when it saw how hard I was going to work at it! (You can see how insensible it made me!!!)
After either the short or the long list, I can only hope that you can finally remove the header image (replace it, too, if that's what you'd meant to do!). In my case, I ended up with a new Header Gadget with no image as I'd expected. I was then able to put a new image in the header, remove it, replace it (just to see if it would!).
But I had no way of knowing that if it had originally been stuck, would the next attempt to add an image also stick?! This may be the problem, the "rub"--I had to test this (all 3 times) without a "stuck" header! So I wish you great Good Luck. You may learn a number of new things, but I can't promise any success! If anyone tries this, let me know if it fails or succeeds!

| 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)
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.
