Getting Back To The Classic GUI

With any new feature, the main concern many folks may have is, when experiencing changes for the first time, is
How do I get back the old version?
I don't think the new GUI 2011 will provide any different emotions.

Some folks, who are using Draft Blogger because some specific feature in the post editor wasn't working, are out of luck. Other folks, who have been using Draft Blogger just to "see what it does", may find comfort in the Classic GUI. Getting back to the Classic GUI isn't difficult.
  • Hit the Blogger "B" logo in the upper left corner. This gets you back to the "Home" page (what we used to call the "Dashboard".
  • Clear the selection "Make Blogger in Draft my default".
  • Login to the Classic GUI, at "http://www.blogger.com".
And, you're back.

Before you do this, find the gear logo in the upper right corner of every Draft screen, and select "Send feedback". Tell Blogger why you are switching back to the Classic GUI, and give them a chance to fix the problem that you have with the New GUI. Be objective - Draft Blogger is a Beta testing opportunity.

And if you get back and eventually find the Classic GUI to be boring, remember that Draft Blogger and the New GUI is only one click away.

have been using the draft version for a good while and thoroughly enjoying it. Though I know it won't be everybody's cup of tea, there's hardly much point in not using it. People might as well get used to it, it will eventually be the main version, won't it?
