As you may have heard, things are starting to look a little different across many Google products—and today, Blogger is the next product to get a makeover.Right now, we can switch between the Classic GUI and the New GUI in Production Blogger, with just a couple mouse clicks. For many, the ability to move back, when required, is the most important part of the initial move forward. Very few military officers will plan an all out assault on the enemy's positions, without some reconnaissance, first.
You start out from the familiar Classic Blogger "Dashboard" - with the advice "The old Blogger interface will be removed in the coming months. Upgrade Now.". Just click on the "Upgrade Now" link.
And, there it is! This display, which we may think of as the "Dashboard" (see the list of blogs, and below, the Reading List?) is now called the "Blog List". For each blog in the blog list, you'll find an array of buttons and links, and a pull down menu (left of "View blog") with more options.
If you want to go back to the Classic interface, just click on the gear icon, in the upper right corner of almost every display, and select "Old Blogger interface".
And now, you're back. Not too terrifying, getting in and out quickly.
On almost every New GUI display, you'll see a "gear" icon in the upper right corner. Clicking on the gear, you'll see a pull down menu, with "Send feedback" and "Old Blogger interface" as menu entries.
So there you have your first glimpse. In between the first and last photos, you'll find an infinity of details. You may - or may not - find the features that you consider necessary.
You will want to observe two caveats, as you check out the new GUI.
- This is the first major change to Blogger, released since their new browser support policy. You'll want to upgrade your browser, if advised to do that.
- You may need to check your cookie filters, to ensure this version of Blogger operates successfully on your computer.
