Indicator of Corrupt Template

I have been experiencing a problem with the Quick Edit - it didn't work on this blog! In order to Edit a post, I had to use the Post Editor. No big problem, just inconvenient. I could use the Quick Edit Pencil on other blogs, but not the Report, which made me think that the Template may be corrupt. Hence, as you astute Readers will have noticed, I changed to this 'new' design, last month.

This image will show what happened. If you notice in the address bar, for my old Bob's Buzz blog, the Post ID is displayed, and the link works. The lower part of the image shows this blog, the Report, - and it's not displaying the Post ID - just the blog URL, which does not work for Quick Editing.

As soon as I changed Templates, it worked! So, if this happens to you, you'll know what to do. Why, or How the Template corrupted, is anyone's guess. These things happen. It's also another good reason to Back-up your Template, from time to time, if you don't normally work on it. Perhaps, I could have uploaded a copied file of the Template, but the urge to have a total change, got to me.

The reply from my Blogger contact was;

"Glad you figured it out! Sorry I wasn't much help earlier, but at least now I'll know that template code can be the source of this issue."

So, even if you stumble upon something which corrects a problem - let others know via the Blogger Help Forum. Many other bloggers may have the same problem!

Another strange occurrence, I've noticed, since I began my Editing Program, is the occasional appearance of this Conflicting Edits pop-up ...

I don't think this is anything to worry about, but it's happened too many times not to be caused by something. I'll have to be alert! Then again, with so many strange things happening lately, in Blogger, I wouldn't be surprised.
