New Blogger June 2008 - Settings

As I said in my previous post New Blogger June 2008 - The Post Editor, the changes offered to us, today, represent the first major overhaul since December 2006. Of course, I overlooked the rollout of Draft Blogger, without which this update would not be possible.

So, having looked at the Post Editor, let's look at Settings, where we see changes in the Basic and Comments tabs.

There are interesting changes in Basic. We have the promised "Import blog" - "Export blog" links. And next to that, a major change - "Delete blog", which now leads to a Delete your blog confirmation screen
This will permanently delete your blog including all posts. You can create another blog at this address using the Google Account you're currently logged in with, however, we can't restore your blog posts once you choose to delete your blog.

Before you delete your blog, do you want to export it ?


Comments gets a possibly popular improvement. "Comment Form Placement" now has a third option - "Embedded below post". Embedded comments is a long awaited improvement.

I have found that exporting your blog and then trying to import it elsewhere is not working. It reads my file and then aborts with a Bad request. 400 error.

It seems that the export function may not be exporting things correctly, as I am seeing raw HTML instead of encoded HTML, especially where there are long lines.

And I've noticed today that the captchas in some cases are to the point of being unrecognizable. I've gotten by with lucky guesses so far. :(
