Wiggy Chrome? Blogger Hurt?

If you are using the computer labs, you may have encountered problems when students tried to get their blogs, etc. Part of the problem is that the labs now have Google Chrome as the default browser, and for some reason, Chrome at school is having trouble rendering websites, including Blogger, correctly. In some labs, Explorer is doing the same.

Solution? Ask students to use MOZILLA FIREFOX as their browser.

Also, now that Blogger is updating to a new interface, you may have some trouble helping students navigate their dashboards, etc. You may want to become familiar with the new interface by clicking "Try the updated Blogger interface" on the very top of your Blogger dashboard. You can switch back to your old interface by clicking the Cog Wheel icon on the right.

Plus, if you are trying to create a Blogroll, the Blog List gadget may not let you rename the blogs. We're sure the folks at Google will fix this bug soon, but in the meantime, you may want to use the Link List to create your student blogroll that uses their names.
