Template Is-experimental Error

has anyone tried to customize the blog in Template, my background doesn't show and i get this error on all three blogs and both computers. just started this morning.


UPDATE: by searching the error Isexperimental, I found the fix. if you signed up for blogger draft years ago , you might get it. below is the fix. it works, mine is on.

Go to settings on dashboard, under general and unclick draft by default icon. Save

I haven't posted since yesterday and my template hasn't been changed in a while. I hope you get your stuff back. I know it can be maddening to deal with such things.

I am not able to change anything on my template - not even the color. I'm stuck with a pumpkin color!

Haven't change anything recently but will save your post for future reference.

Good to know. I haven't changed anything. I'm lucky to get on line!

I'm glad I never signed up for draft! I never could figure out what is was, despite people telling me. But leave it to you to find a fix, you ARE the Blog Guru of Computerland!

Sometimes blogger just backs up, I think you should wait a bit for them to fix that technical error.

Blogger is sometimes so persnickety!

I haven't had any problems when I played with templates recently. But I never used draft. You know me, the less I know.....

This reminds me though that it seems like the more recent additions to the blogs can do more stuff with theirs, for example, answer comments, than I can't do with mine. Or am I missing something again?

Thanks for that one, Sandra...I checked my settings and I am good! ...:)JP

I am new to blogging but I wish you much luck customizing your blog. I know when I started mine, it was a lot of trial and errors.

I have I cannot even write in my
blog if I make a mistake. If I have a spelling error and know I made a mistake. I cannot even go back and fix it.

I have to go another way and I am telling you I had to figure it out myself. You would never in a million years to go there.

If I had not figured it myself.

I could not even be doing my blog.
I wrote them and they do not know anything. Your stuck.

I had where I could not even do what you did neither two weeks ago. It frozed.

I dislike this block system. To do a change.

Changing my blog up is a big major headache.. I do ok with headers, but backgrounds, not so much.

Ann said...

well I haven't changed anything since the fall change but I'll have to remember this when I go to change things up for Christmas. I hate that they keep playing around with stuff and making things difficult

Angela said...

You know I don't know. I used to change my background every month for the different holidays and seasons. I haven't changed it in such a long time because of the new template thing they forced on us awhile back that I couldn't do it as easy as I used to.

I changed my blog layout and template last spring. I don't ever think I will do it again. I would like a wider blog, but when I tried it all my previous posts looked funny. I think I'm staying with the same old look!

SquirrelQueen said...

I made changes to the template not long ago but went over to check, no problems. For a while Blogger was hiding some of my posts for a few hours, they would only show up for a few bloggers. I have noticed a few others who post at the same time each day aren't showing up until later.

Blogger likes to keep us guessing.

Sandra..well..I read your post and though I have not tried to do anything but just post...at the end I said "huh??" I am so ignorant about all of it and am scared of my own shadow and that I might lose my blog. I am afraid to try ANYTHING!
I wonder why in the world I have such a problem catching on to all of it.
...and the thing is...you figured it all out and then were able to get in into a post and show us how to do it. AMAZING! YOU ARE AMAZING TO ME! :)

Thanks for the tip. I have trouble commenting from the iPad at times. I think it's just blog glitches:(
Glad you found your solution:)

Rose said...

Good you found the fix!

Betty Manousos said...

i made changes to my blog template a while back..no problems at all.

just now i noticed my today's post isn't showing up. i'm really frustrated. i do hope it gets fixed soon.

EG CameraGirl said...

AH, Blogger was playing with my "mind" over the weekend too. Luckily for me. I was barely home and had pre-posted entries for a few days.

Chatty Crone said...

Oh no I haven't checked - that is so over my head.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Thanks fvor doing the homework on this problem, Sandra. While I haven't had this one, my problem with blogger is that even though you are offered options under the Simple template which I recently switched to, they do NOT work...for example changing the colors and font styles.

Deb said...

so happy we have you to come too when we get stuck on stuff...you always find the answers...
