Some users are experiencing problems with missing Followers on their own blogs, as well as others. We're aware of the problem, and ask for your patience as we investigate.

We've created a form to gather more information on this issue, and could use your help if you have a moment to fill it out. Thanks in advance.


Some Safari users attempting to comment on blogs with the embedded form are seeing a "Your request could not be processed. Please try again" message as the comment fails to post. However, posting is usually successful if attempted the second time.

We're looking into this and apologize for the inconvenience.

Searching from the navbar is currently returning incomplete data for some users. We're investigating our search functionality and will hopefully have a fix out shortly.

As a workaround, you can use search operators on Google.com to search for content specifically on your blog. For example:

site:yourblog.blogspot.com KEYWORD KEYWORD

Update, 1/22: Thanks to everyone for all the detailed reports on the gaps in our search coverage. Both the Blogger and BlogSearch teams are working now on completing a full resolution of the issue, and we anticipate it will be fixed in the next several weeks.

Update, 3/28: This is now resolved. Thanks for your patience.

Update, 4/25: We've recently identified a few different cases where search results aren't displaying accurate information. We're re-opening this issue and will update this post as soon as we have more info to share.

Currently the Edit posts list maxes out at 5000 posts, which could make some older posts inaccessible for editing. We're working on a fix, and appreciate your patience in the meantime.


Blogger Play is currently unavailable. We're looking into the problem and hope to have it resolved soon.

Thanks for your patience.

The word verification (CAPTCHA) image is currently mis-aligned for classic template blogs using the embedded image form, and in some cases unreadable. We're investigating this and will reaply with an update shortly.

In the meantime, you can switch your form to either 'Full Page' or 'Pop-up' to properly display the word verification.

Javascript inserted in some classic template titles 1956393

Some users who use Blogger's classic templates are seeing javascript inserted into the <title> elements of their pages. This results when users have modified the standard templates and have inserted the <blogger> and </blogger> tags into their <title> elements.

If your blog is affected, go to "Template", then click on "Edit HTML". Remove anything between <title> and </title> in your template, and replace it with this:


We are looking at the feasability of adjusting our code to be sensitive to cases where the template has <blogger> tags inserted in the <title>, but for now please use the above work-around to eliminate the javascript code from your blog's page titles.
