Disappeared Blog

I just noticed the posts are visible in Bloglines so they may be in other feeders as well.

I can post here but they don't show up on the blog. We do have all the posts in "edit".

Anybody reading, after WA gets through beating me about the head and shoulders, I hope she can salvage it. Please pass the word so our friends won't think we've shut down.

Granny; I cannot access blog in IE nor in MF - all I get is a blank page. I click on "view blog" on dashboard and it pulls up a blank page; I click on "view" on edit post page and just get a blank page when it switches over to the blog. I type in the url on the address bar and it pulls up a blank page. I don't know what the heck!

It must not be our computers malfunctioning because both of our computers wouldn't go insane at the exact same time.

Ok, one idea. It happened after you put the blogroll on "hidden", didn't it? Maybe if you undo the hide feature and put it on to show, the blog will show again also? I do not know how to hide the blogroll so it is up to you to experiment. Egads but we have had a bad time with the blog lately!

Incidentally, all my other blogs show up just fine, so it is only Is America Burning that is affected. WA

Later: I checked the template and ye gods! almost everything is gone from it too!

I made copies of the template when we were trying to find out if there was a template error and trying other templates. But remember, copy and paste messed up badly too. I have copies of those on "Closet" blog; you have info to access the list of blogs on my dashboard. Scroll down to the entry for is america template (old) and 2 posts down, another for template for is america. For some reason they are posted in "Compose" and I could NOT get the computer to switch over to HTML to see how messed up they were.

However, it is no great problem. If undoing the hidden feature for the blogroll doesn't get the blog main page back, I can install a new template and re-install all our sidebar things, etc. It will just take a little time but no big deal.

On the blogger support pages I have noted a number of bloggers wailing about their blogs disappearing! I hope Blogger hasn't done that to us!! We can get the blog back for the present (I hope) but CANNOT recover all past blogs. I hope the Dastardly Duo hasn't shafted us on that. I hope we can get it fixed with just a little tinkering and work. Hope, hope, hope. WA

Later: OK, I've reinstalled the template. Will re-install our sidebar etc. tonight. At least we're back on page. WA.

Hello, Granny Ann.
I was wondering what happened here.
Good to see you back.

I never did hide the blogroll - didn't get that far- so it wasn't that.

I don't know what happened except I was deleting the old blogroll from the sidebar when the whole blog disappeared.

Y'all who think of me as a gentle soul should have heard me.

Merciful Heavens, Granny! You mean you didn't just say "Fie on it!"? :-)

Once in a while I am pushed to the brink and use a bit of Gadfly's purple prose. It happens. Hope your blood pressure is back to normal by now.

Glad to see YOU back, PT. We miss you when you are busy elsewhere.

Ray was sitting here when it happened and his jaw dropped.

He thought I was reading some of the latest Bush or Dobson shenanigans.

Nope. I was staring at a blank screen.

Y'all be leavin' Ms. Gadfly alone now, y'all heah?:) Every good dish needs several spices.....:)

Glad you made it back. When you were down, all that loaded of your page for me, was an icon for that place that sets your title on fire.
