Not OS specific 2. Issue observed on IE, Firefox and Chrome browsers. 3. Not template specific. Reproducible with all templates on blogger.com. 4. Tested 2 other blogs on Firefox using other templates. Not reproducible. Specific to my blog layout only 5. Moved the Subscription Links gadget to the bottom of the layout and the issue is not reproducible
Investigation: Original order of Gadgets on my blog are as below (Original state/Base state): 1. Blog Archive 2. BLog List 3. Subscription Links 4. Profile Positions of Position 1 Position 2 Position 3 Position 4 Positions of Subscription Position 1 Position 2 Position 3 a.last b.last c.last Position 4 Subscription Links gadget irrespective of Profile gadget WORKS WORKS WORKS FAILs Subscription Links gadget with Profile gadget always coming after Links gadget WORKS WORKS FAILs(due to (a) below) gadget is Profile - FAILs gadget is Blog Archive - WORKS gadget is Blog List - WORKS NA
Conclusion: 1. If the 'Subscription Links' gadget is the last gadget on the Right Hand Sidebar, then the dropdown for Posts and Comments does not display all the options. 2. If the 'Subscription Links' gadget is the second last gadget which is followed by 'Profile' gadget, then the dropdown for Posts and Comments does not display all the options. 3. If the 'Subscription Links' gadget is the only gadget, then the dropdown does
not display all the options. 4. If the 'Subscription Links' gadget is the first gadget which is followed by 'Profile' gadget as the second gadget(only 2 gadgets on the page, then the dropdown for Posts and Comments does not display all the options. 5. For existent blog on blogspot.com(in this case, existent blog is this blog), the behavior is specific to Firefox and Chrome browsers. 6. For new blogs that are created afresh on blogspot.com, the behavior is observed on IE in addition to Firefox and Chrome browser. 7. If more than 1 post is posted on blogspot.com, Date is displayed only for the most recent post posted on that day if the display page contains multiple posts. However, if you visit individual posts, posted date is visible. For tests 1-6, I am suspecting there could be a whole lot of permutations and combinations of several other gadgets available out there that could fail to display the feeds correctly just like in this case. Its an ocean of tests!
