|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)
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.

|"How do I get my pictures to enlarge when I click on them?" |
I don't keep track of all the other photo hosts, but Blogger downloads your photo in a sort of dual system so that a small image is made that fits the area (post or sidebar) and then you can click on it for the full-size large version. I used to do the same thing by hand when I made my own web sites by making both a small and large version of a picture and placing them in the format below. You can see it in the html code of your blog if you look at it in Edit Html mode; it will look something like this:
DISPLAY:block; MARGIN: 0px auto 10px; CURSOR:
hand; TEXT-ALIGN: center"alt="" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AVxLoZ0mR_0/
s400/dgblues.jpg" border="0" /></a>
If you click the small image (the blue text above) you'll see the large photo (red text above), otherwise the small image is already showing.

|When you select "Fonts and Colors" on the Layout page, "Text color" is the first in the vertical list, but "text font" is further down (sixth on my list); if you click on that link, a list of fonts (not previously showing) should appear in place of the color boxes out to the right. Furthest to the right are boxes to check for Smaller, Larger, Bold, and Italic. If you still aren't seeing what you expect, never underestimate the value of "clearing the cache and cookies" to update your screen. |
