bX-9x80od Error and Solution

I got this error when I tried to change the color of a link on my blog.

I googled 'bX-9x80od' and saw that it was a problem that had been reported many times.

The solution is simple. It doesn't involve a workaround or anything strange. It is just a question of going to the correct page in your blog set-up.

The basis of the error comes from the fact that people are using the new templates in, but the page you would normally go to in order to change link colors etc, only works for the older blogger templates.

So if you are in your blog and you go to 'Layout' and you see this:

Then you are in the wrong page. If you click on 'Fonts and Colors' you will go to a page that looks like you should be able to change link colors etc., but it will bring up an error when you try to save it.

If you are looking at your blog (rather than the admin panel) and you click on customize, it will still take you to the wrong page:

This is what you should be doing, instead.

Go to Dashboard, click on 'Layout' and you will see a new tab called 'Template Designer'. That is the one you want, and the rest is easy and straightforward from there.

  1. uumm, I don't have the "Layout" on the dashboard I have "design" which takes me to "page elements" When I go to the new Template design to change colors I get this error code "bX-dhuj2l"

  2. Marni,
    Can you see the 'Template Designer' tab? If not then you are in the wrong screen.

MarsEdit 4

I've been using MarsEdit for just over seven years. I started with version 2, and then upgraded to version 3 in 2010.Now, in 2018, I just upgraded to version 4. This is my first post with the upgrade and I'll report on it in a little while as I get used to the new version.Here is what Daniel of Red Sweater Software has to say about his product:Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be online just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not ideal for creating it. If you're serious about writing for the web, you need a desktop blog editor.

Resistance Is Futile

Some of the trains that run from London Kings Cross to Cambridge divide at Cambridge. Part of the train goes on to Kings Lynn and the rest stops at Cambridge and does the run back to London. Perhaps it picks up other carriages coming from somewhere else, I don’t know but it seems likely.When you get on the train and before it sets off, there’s a public announcement announcing how the train divides. It explains that the train is composed of eight carriages and that passengers wanting to travel beyond Cambridge should ensure that they are in the front four carriages.The rear four carriages are of course nearest the barrier, so we choose to sit in one of those carriages if for no other reason than that we don’t have to walk so far to find a seat.So there we are and the voice comes over with the announcement. And then there is a pause and then a voice tells you what carriage you are in. So we hear ‘Six of Eight’ or ‘Seven of Eight’ – and every time I hear it I think of Star Trek, ‘Three o…

Business For Britain Is Concerned With Business For Britain

This report in the New York Times today

LONDON — Is British business fretting about the risks of the country drifting out of the European Union? Or does it crave a looser relationship with Continental allies, one free from meddlesome regulation?
The answer to that question remained unclear Monday after a newly formed group of business leaders argued for a renegotiation of Britain’s membership terms — echoing the policy of Prime Minister David Cameron, who in January promised voters a referendum on whether the country would remain in the Union.
The new group, called Business for Britain, is intended to counter the intervention of pro-E.U. business leaders who have warned of the dangers of Britain slipping out of the 27-nation bloc and its single market of 500 million people. A statement released Monday to announce the group’s formation was signed by about 500 executives.
I think this opinion in the New York Times article is interesting:

Never much attracted to the idea of European unity,…
