No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) mexindian 2/22/12 3:49 AM
"Sites" has disappeared from the top google bar, from "More", and from "Even more".... which means that "sites" is not listed as a google product anywhere I can find (will Sites be discontinued?). 

A direct shortcut to my sites still does work, but is there anyway to get to sites from the top google bar?
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) k8oms 2/22/12 4:37 AM
No,  I don't think sites will be discontinued. I think the top bar is a work in progress. See  https://sites.google.com/a/pjrprojects.co.uk/sitesguide/new-in-googleverse/sites-news/googlenavigationbarandgooglesites
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) mexindian 2/22/12 9:27 AM
Thanks for the link... the problem is precisely that I can't find Sites even in the "even more" category... which is why I was concerned.

Same for me. Surprising. Are we so few to use the sites services and nobody remarks that the service is not at all listed?

What's happening?

can anyone who does not see Sites listed under 'Even More' please
a) Tell us which country you are accessing from
b) post the url of the 'Even More' page you are seeing
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Netstat2020 2/24/12 2:05 AM
I'm accessing Even more from Sweden. 

Here's the URL http://www.google.se/intl/en/options/ and here is a screenshot.

(I had swedish language on as default but switched to English trying to get sites to show, that's why url is in  eng version)

For the time being, just use sites.google.com
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) mexindian 2/24/12 3:31 AM
Link to "Even more":
 Accessing from Italy, and URL is:  http://www.google.com/intl/en/about/products/index.html. Also the Italian version http://www.google.com/intl/it/options/ lacks Sites, although it is slightly different anyway.

And with regards to directly using sites.google.com, does this mean that this develpment might be permanent?
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) mexindian 2/24/12 3:32 AM
The "Even more" option is inside the "More" option
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) philridout 2/24/12 6:32 AM
Google are aware of the problem and are investigating

Thanks for your email

I'm in France and the url of my Even More page is http://www.google.com/intl/en/about/products/index.html


Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) maisn 2/29/12 3:25 AM
There are no even more link in the norwegian-site, but if i navigate to +  I can see teh even more link "inside" more.
But there are no Sites in the even more page http://www.google.no/about/products/

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) 2013Shelley 3/2/12 3:38 PM
A link to SITES should definitely be in the "MORE" part
It's not like the drop down menu is too long....
And,   when I am logged in to my google account,  Google should be "smart" enough to give me a link
to my active services.
The toolbar should be smart.

Can anyone posting in this thread / experiencing this provide:
  1. What your language and location settings are set to?
    https://www.google.com/settings/language and for location, what appears as your location on the left sidebar when you do a Google search?
  2. Whether you experience no matter which browser you use.
Thanks

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Godfried76 3/9/12 4:40 AM
Accessing from Belgium in Dutch. Google Sites is not in "More" nor in "Even more".


Hope they're not thinking of discontinuing Google Sites. I use it intensively!
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) grandad eastbourne 3/12/12 6:23 AM
Language is English, Location is UK (although I don't appear to have a sidebar when in search).
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Stylidium 3/12/12 6:05 PM
No 'Sites' option under More and no 'Sites' option under 'Even More' on Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
I can access sites via <https://sites.google.com/> on the above.
'Sites' DOES show up on IE and under 'more' on my gmail app on iPad. I hate IE and cant easily do stuff on iPad so a real pest.
Firefox, IE and iPad all use a different top Google bar.

Location is "Melbourne, Vic" (Australia)
The link to <https://www.google.com/settings/language> doesn't work, defers to settings. But it will be English ... or English (Australia) if there is an option.
URL for Even More is:
Firefox  http://www.google.com.au/intl/en/options/
I get this url when I click 'More' on IE too (where there is no 'Sites' option of course) - Sites is on main bar in gmail when in IE.

Various screen dumps of what I see from Firefox and IE are attached.

I am from India and use Internet Explorer and I experience the same problem for last many days.
 
  • However, you can find the option of 'Sites' under 'More'. if you log into just Google A/c ( and not in your Gmail).
  • 'Sites' is available if we access Products under the Google A/c Setting
 
As soon as we access Gmail, the options under 'More' gets reduced to a limited few and we don't find 'Sites'.
'Sites' is not visible even under the 'Products'.
 
This seems like a bug. Google should correct this irregularity because normally users log into GMAIL first and then access the services.

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) philridout 3/23/12 2:40 PM
The easiest answer is to simply bookmark sites.google.com

Can anyone posting in this thread / experiencing this provide:
  1. What your language and location settings are set to?
    https://www.google.com/settings/language and for location, what appears as your location on the left sidebar when you do a Google search?
  2. Whether you experience no matter which browser you use.

I'm accessing from Australia and 'sites' is not visable in gmail, http://www.google.com.au/intl/en/options/
 however i can access it from the igoogle home page
Thank you for your response!

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) philridout 4/28/12 9:44 AM
This thread has gone a bit quiet but I've been asked to ask if people are still not seeing Sites under More and Even More.
If so can you say which region you are in please.
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Stylidium 4/28/12 10:27 PM
Probably gone quiet because nothing has changed? No change here. Still no 'Sites' on the main header bar nor under 'More' (Australia). Can only access sites via web address/bookmark. Very frustrating as I was developing sites for dozens of community groups - this is all now on hold.
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Bas Braams 4/29/12 12:44 AM
<<I've been asked to ask ..>> It should not be that way. Anyway, no sites in the bar or under more or under even more for me in Austria with customizations set to use some variant of English.
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Netstat2020 4/29/12 1:58 AM
We cannot see Sites under More and Even More in Sweden, but I find it hard to believe Google hasn't recognized that already, I mean 2 months has gone by since this was reported..
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) philridout 5/15/12 1:54 PM
Next question:  do users who don't see Sites under "even more" also have Blogger missing on that page ? 
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Stylidium 5/15/12 11:19 PM
Using Firefox in Australia:
Blogger is there under "More" and then again under "Even More"
Sites still not there anywhere in gmail when using Firefox.

Sites is there on the top line in IE (which I don't use - and don't want to use) but Sites isn't listed under "More" nor under "Even More" in IE.

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Netstat2020 5/16/12 7:28 AM
Yes (Sweden). We cannot se Sites in any menu, and cannot see Blogger under "Even more". 
However, Blogger do show up under "More".
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Bas Braams 5/16/12 10:15 AM
<<Next question: ...>> What a bizarre interaction. I wonder if it is sincere. Can't the Sites coders just look at their blasted code? Anyway, for me in Austria, the black top-bar has +<myname>, Search, Images, Maps, Play, YouTube, News, Gmail, Drive, Calendar and then <More>. Under <More> I find Translate, Mobile, Books, Offers, Wallet, Shopping, Blogger, Reader, Finance, Photos, Videos and then <Even More>. Under Even More things are organized in categories: Web (Web Search, Chrome), Mobile (only Mobile), Media (Image Search, News), Home+Office (Docs, Translate), Social (only Groups), Specialized Search (Blog Search, Alerts, Scholar), and Innovation (only Code). Sites is not in the top bar, not under More and not under Even More. Blogger is under More but not under Even More. I guess that both Sites and Blogger might have appeared in the Social category under Even More.
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Berny_ch 6/7/12 9:44 AM
The only way to see "Sites" is : logon with a google apps account. Nobody knows why. I would like to have an anwser from Google but... impossible.

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) philridout 6/20/12 1:37 AM
There are two issues for with Google's navigation bar for Sites users.

a) For many people, Sites is not listed in the navigation bar or under 'More' or under 'Even More'.
Google have been notified of this but do not seem willing to do anything about this. My recommendation is to bookmark sites.google.com

b) The navigation bar does not show while viewing or editing Docs or Sites. Google made this change to "free up space on the screen"


If you don't like this change, my recommendation is to use the 'Report an Issue' facility to let Google know.

In Docs, click Help>Report an Issue
In Sites, click More>Report an Issue
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Anticorro 6/20/12 2:24 AM
https://www.google.com/webhp?hl=cs NO 
...

Why Czech, Slovak republik, Hungary, Finland, Romania and more without More / Even more?
Why english, France, Poland, Russia, Italy, Deutschland and next with More / Even more?
Same problem with g-mail.
Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) gitte bailey hass 10/2/12 12:57 PM
a) accessing from Belgium
b) I don't even have a "even more" page. Only a "more"

Yes it is very frustrating the sites are no longer listed in the Google menu bar at the top.  I cannot find it under more or even more either. To access my sites I logged in https://sites.google.com/ and then they were displayed. I simply needed to click on the link to the site to edit it.  In the event it doesn't let you edit it, look down bottom to find the sign in link. 
For ease of access to my google sites, I  highlighted and dragged the URL to the ribbon bar just below the browser bar so now the sites are docked there for ready access anytime.
Why would google no longer include sites in there menu bar?  And why have google made it so hard for people to find the sites easily? 
Thank you for your post, I have been trying to find answers to this question for a year!

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) Sam Scales 1/8/13 6:41 AM
I have noticed it depends on the Google product you are on. Sites does not show if I look while in Gmail but it is listed if I look from the Google search page.

Google is very fragmented at the moment.

Puerto Rico; English (United States); Safari and Firefox; No "Sites" in black bar, "More," nor "Even More," no matter the google page I am on.

Re: No way to get to "Sites" from top google bar (using a shortcut still works) k8oms 7/17/13 9:59 AM
I go to sites.google.com and bookmark it for fast access.
