Spinning Wheel in New Editor - again!
Last night, on the Blogger Help Forum, many bloggers reported their inability to post, or edit posts, or basically, do anything, because of an ever-spinning wheel (of death).
This is a recurrence of the same problem which happened in January of this year, and was supposed to have been fixed. Obviously, it may be a recurring problem. Of course, Known Issues reported nothing except the result of the January problem, as engineers, on a Sunday nights, State-side, I would imagine, are thin-on-the-ground.
I had the problem, too, like all the rest, but I remembered that last time, I switched from the New Editor, back to the Old Editor. This seemed to be a plausible, and successful, work-around, although once used to the New Editor, going back is somewhat uncomfortable for many of the 'newbies'.
The Spinning Wheel...
Go to your Settings - Basic screen, scroll down to Global Settings, and click on Old Editor under the option Select Post Editor. Then, click Save Settings.
Don't forget to always have a quick look at Known Issues, to see if a problem has been reported...
Don't forget to keep checking that the problem has been rectified, or not, so you can revert to New Editor.
