I inadvertently deleted my weblog publish – that is Take #2!

In brief I’m now utilizing NEW Blogger for almost the whole lot – BUT

  • some main omissions have nonetheless not been remedied
  • Legacy Blogger is now scheduled to vanish in September!
I managed to unintentionally delete the publish earlier than Google had cached it
so that is the brand new shorthand model

Communication has improved 

Although provided that you understand the place the Blogger Help Community is to search out

a number of modifications in the date the Legacy Option goes be terminated.

These are abstract posts about modifications made to this point. There have in truth
been extra – which for some cause they’ve not recorded. 

Update on my final weblog publish

1. IMPOSSIBLE to add photographs from my laptop

Then – no one might add a picture

NOW – importing a picture works however is a bit complicated as to which icon means
what in phrases of adjusting the picture.

Those importing tons or importing photographs greater than the pixel width of their
weblog publish nonetheless appear to be having some issues. I think they should change
the scale and file dimension of their photographs.

2. IMPOSSIBLE to add movies correctly

Then – it was unimaginable to add a video
NOW It’s nonetheless a ineffective icon – as a result of it can not add a YouTube Video
This is what it seems to be like if I exploit the video add icon for considered one of my movies

  • good at figuring out the appropriate one with a number of ideas
  • unhealthy at recognising its format and loading into the appropriate format/dimension capsule

This is what it ought to appear to be so you may see the HUGE distinction between a small 4:3
format and an appropriately sized 16:9 format embedded video.

3. OBSESSIVE USE OF ICONS quite than phrases

Then – massive and complicated icons

NOW: nonetheless bought the icons however
they’re smaller and still have a textual content clarification if you happen to hover your cursor
over the icon


4. FEEDBACK in regards to the new interface is troublesome – as a result of it isn’t
signalled clearly

Then – No phrases – only a circle with a query mark inside – has not modified.

NOW: it is precisely the identical AND

  • Feedback doesn’t work – you must press Retry to get it to
  • as soon as despatched, it then renders the display (inside Blogger) frozen
    and you need to refresh the web page to hold on.

How anyone might suppose that having such an terrible suggestions system is a
good concept when introducing new coding is totally past me – however
plainly cock-ups on coding for Feedback is a Google specialty.

5. NO AUTOMATED HEADINGS eg H2, H3 H4 for Headings, Sub-Headings
and Minor Headings

Then you needed to understand how html works to make a heading.

NOW there are vary of headings in the drop down menu – which reverts to

Headings nevertheless want an automatic (and adjustable by creator) spacing after the heading because it’s now IMPOSSIBLE to see whether or not or not there’s a area after the sub-heading


Then beginning a brand new publish was removed from apparent.

Now it is loads simpler to see how. The location of the hyperlink to a brand new
publish has moved – AND THEY ADDED TEXT!


Then I mentioned

Labelling posts now takes about 5 instances longer than it used to
do. It’s each a timewaster and fully irritating – as a result of it
drops labels as you save new ones.

NOW – a lot of the issues have been mounted. They bought the message that
not all people restrains themselves to lower than 10 labels.

It’s a unique approach of labelling – however no scrolling now

  • if you happen to begin to write a label – a menu of choices comes up
  • you must tick the field to use the label
  • saved labels might be seen on the prime of the menu of labels

BUT you continue to can not minimize and paste labels from an identical weblog publish
and it nonetheless takes longer than earlier than.

8. COLOUR PROBLEMS – a really a lot lowered color palette

Then I known as it a faulty color palette with a a lot lowered
variety of colors.

NOW the unique color palette has been restored AND the scope to
save a particular color now works.


9. LOCATION Problems

Last time I mentioned

They’ve moved capabilities on the dashboard and publish display
with out offering a transparent sign

NOW: For essentially the most half this has been mounted. Functions (eg. the hyperlink for a brand new publish) have been returned to the place all people is aware of it ought to be.



Last time I mentioned it was ergonomically incompetent.  

NOW icons are actually a lot smaller and it is a lot simpler to click on
a number of in fast succession.

Outstanding points

  • MAJOR FAIL in phrases of explaining to folks merely the best way to entry previous posts. Still TOTALLY UNABLE to entry previous posts to edit if the publish does NOT HAVE A LABEL. They simply have to reinstate the present search facility which makes use of labels and is straightforward to make use of. I’ve despatched suggestions thrice however it’s been ignored
  • DELETION OF A PUBLIC POST ought to take two confirms not one. I unintentionally deleted the earlier publish I wrote on this matter – considering I used to be deleting an empty publish quite than one which was revealed. It could be so easy to both
    • introduce a double delete for a PUBLISHED publish
    • revert it to draft and you need to delete once more to take away it 
  • A Blog creator’s choices re the template is now disguised behind three dots. Lest anyone fiddle with the html!  I spent a very long time questioning what I used to be going to do in regards to the stuff which had additional meta tags and code for particular gadgets above .
  • Loads of controls are hidden or subdued. It’s as if Blogger would not belief us with them. I must develop up and supply correct assist hyperlinks subsequent to EVERY management.

For these persevering with to have issues / not utilizing Blogger

The cause you are having issues is due to your
template not Blogger.

Ask the one that made your template when they’re updating
it for the modifications in New Blogger

PS You how have
no entry to html!
