I am setting up another person as administrator of our club’s blog.  If she is set up as an author, can she then edit any of the information on the various pages?  She doesn’t see the entire list of items on the Blogger such as “pages”.  Can she be an administrator along with me?  If so, does that give her access to update or edit anything on the blog?  I am trying to work with her on the phone as our homes are about 100 miles apart.

If you want her to be able to manage everything about the blog, including settings, then making her an administrator is the way to go. Just be sure you trust her since an admin can even delete the whole blog!

Yes, absolutely. Giving her admin status will not change the fact that you have admin permissions. I have a few people who have added me as an admin to their blog – so I can go in and check on things or fix things if they have problems.

I am back again with the same subject but a different issue.  I am no longer a member of the RV club where I set up a blog for them more than 10 years ago.  Now they have requested my help to set up a new administrator.  We have done everything correctly, as far as I know, to add the new administrator.  He has received the invitation and responded to it, and I see his name on the list of administrators in Settings.  (There are two blogs linked together, and his name appears as administrator in both of them.)  There should now be three of us listed, and the current administrator (#2) and I have no problems accessing the “back door”.   For the new guy, we got on the phone and went step by step over the procedure – but no luck.  I suspect Google has changed something between Admin #2 and #3, and there is probably some deep technical issue that does not allow this procedure to take place.  We are very frustrated as this old blog still functions as an information center for the members, and we see no reason to give it up now (other than it won’t allow a new person to take over).  Any help would be appreciated.

If you can go into the settings of the club’s blog and see Blog Admins and Authors: and see his email there – then it seems to me you should be all set.

When he logs in to Blogger.com – you’re saying that he does not see the RV club’s blog? Does he know to click the dropdown arrow to see all the possible blogs he has access to?

If that doesn’t help, let me know and we’ll do a zoom call.

A Zoom call may be necessary.  When would you be available?  I will check with the new guy also.
