New dashboard issues!

    I like the new dashboard. The only issue I have is that I run lots of blogs, and the three I have to update the most cannot be found in the dropdown menu that you now have to use to see all your blogs.

    Why has this happened? Is anyone else having problems with the new dashboard?

    You have to click on the tab “All my blogs” to get the drop-down menu. I have 5 blogs, I see 4 of them in tabs, then “All my blogs.”

    We should say the OS & browser: XP with Firefox.

    I don’t have an “All my blogs” tab. It’s so strange!!

    I have clicked the all my blogs tab and they are not all shown in the drop down menu. That was the point I am trying to make. They area still there – but I cant access them from the all my blogs drop down menu.

    Hmmm… OK, my latest blog wouldn’t appear in the prior Dashboard because I was using a custom image header and if I put a name in the form, it would appear beneath the custom image. So I didn’t put in a name. Then I finally found out about the “Hide text” button! So I could put in the blog name, check that box, and all was well.

    Dashboard->Settings -> Is Blog Title filled in? It should be!

    Then:

    Dashboard->Design->Custom Image Header -> Click Hide Text button!

    Is that what’s happening with you too?

    It appeared in the previous dashboard. Let me see if this will resolve it. It doesn’t appear to be providing any joy yet.

    Nope – doesn’t help I’m afraid

    I’m out of suggestions, then!

    As for the other guy:

    >>>I wanted to update a picture on a post and there is no way to go back in to make a change.

    Manage->Posts won’t let you get to the post?

    All my publish posts have an Edit button at the bottom. I can usually change anything.

    Thanks anyway. Just really weird that the three sites I used most out of about 30 arent on the dropdown list.

    I tried the Blog Title suggestion earlier but that didn’t work for me either. I had thought that maybe the tab wasn’t coming up because my blog didn’t have a title… but nope, that’s not it. I still don’t have an “All blogs” pull-down menu either, which is weird since everyone else seems to!

    Hmmm… I wonder if the length of blog title might be a factor?

    #210265

    OK well my titles are “Roger Helmer MEP” and “Crossbench Consulting” – neither appear on the new drop down. Longer ones do mind you

    crossbench: if you look in the dozen or so other threads about the new upgrade, you’ll find lots of comments with a yellow background. Those are all from staff. They are keepign support open all weekend as well to deal with these issues.

    I think you may be on to something re the custom header – as these three all have that.

    It might help us narrow down the source of the problem if you let us know what browser and version and OS you’re all using. Opera users are reporting some errors nobody else is experiencing.
