An explanation at last
Well, by examining the status page I discovered the I’m not being singled out. Apparently Blogger is having a problem publishing archives for everyone. Also template editing isn’t updating, so I’ll just have to live with what I have for now. When everything is fixed, I’ll edit the template for this blog so that the archive works and I can insert links where is appropriate. Be patient with me, and I’ll try to be patient with Blogger.
