Good news... problem finally solved

Good news for all bloggers who have been experiencing problems with missing editing icons in the new post page.

It has nothing to do with Blogger and nothing to do with internet browsers (both IE and FF didn't work for me). It is actually Singnet's problem. It seems to affect singnet users only I think.

Here's a solution from the forum for those using Internet Explorer.

Tools -> Internet Options
Click on "Connections" page tab
Click on "LAN Settings" button (if you are using Broadband)
Check "Use a proxy server for your LAN ..." checkbox
Click on "Advanced" button
Under HTTP type, input "proxy.singnet.com.sg" for proxy address and "8080" for port

It works for me!

  10. Hi Angel, I've tried adding new item to link list and there's no problem. Maybe you can change back the proxy and see if it's the cause of the problem?

  14. Hi Small Small Baker,

    So sad, your method can't work on my stupid computer. Still have to stick to my troublesome way (hubby's laptop). :( Thanks so much 'Blogger Rescuer'. I will try again.

  15. Hi Small Small Baker,

    I like to share another way to restore the 'Editing Icons'. Simply bring the cursor to the editing icons, clip once and press Ctrl F5, and everything will display again. I found this solution from another blog. Hope this will help too.

  16. Hi Happy Flour, thanks for your second solution. It looks simpler than the first one and it can be used by those who are not Singnet users. Hm... I'm wondering if it only affects Singnet users or not.
