Blogspot fail

My blog changed its appearance. The background went pale green and the text size tiny. I fiddled but I was unable to restore it to its previous fine condition. As I expected, it was nothing I did, just some weirdness caused by a kiddie at blogspot fiddling where he shouldn't have been and it has returned to normal. But my header photo is wrong. Such botheration. I don't have time for fixing other people's errors but I guess will fix it at some point.

Edit one minute later: I thought it had been fixed, but when I checked just now, it is back to being faulty.

  2. Wierd. When the page first loaded I got your normal theme, but a second latter, after everything finished loading I got the ugly green. I guess there may be a clue in there somehwere...

  3. Swings and roundabouts, dear Andrew.

    Having a colour vision deficiency (ie being somewhat colour blind) the colour of your blog does not concern me in the slightest and I happen to like the small font.

  4. I like the normal transparent type background. As I type this at 12.46 pm, 8/3 it is normal except for the Highriser.

    Same was happening here Ben. It is like as it is opening, it gets hijacked.

    Victor, I noticed the smaller font is easier for me to read, but at least one of my readers has pretty poor sight. I might change it when things settle down.

  5. oddly enough, if i navigate to page 2 of your blog everything is normal except the Highriser header. Hmm

  6. Didn't notice that Fen, and of course you are right. I found complaints on blogger help. I am not the only one.

  7. As soon as I opened the comments, it went to pale green and teensy writing.
    Are you using old blogger or new blogger?
    I mean I only just found out there was a new blogger.

  8. Jah Teh, I think I am using new blogger, but old editor. I tried the new one when it was released and it was buggy. I need holidays to attend to such matters. Put in a word to work will ya hon.

  9. Dear Work, Please let Andrew stay home for a few days, his colour is a putrid shade of green and we fear for our mental health if it keeps up.

  11. The only thing that would have made Jah Teh's note to your employer more persuasive would have been had it been signed 'My Mother'.

  13. The stars have aligned Ben. As usual, if you have done nothing to break something on the net, then don't try and fix it. I should have left it alone.
