Getting Out Of Draft Blogger

Occasionally, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?, we see a plaintive query
How do I remove my blog from using Draft Blogger?

Some blog owners use Draft Blogger because of a specific problem - then discover later, that use of Draft Blogger, in general, is not a good idea.

Generally, one simply logs out of Blogger, then logs into Blogger using the normal Blogger login.

Simply logging out, from Draft Blogger, won't always fix the problem.

Sometimes, though, simply logging out of Draft Blogger won't return the browser to normal.

In the latter case, one must first clear the Draft Blogger setting, using the "User settings" dashboard page - where we see the key setting
Use Blogger Draft
Change that option to "No" - then clear cache, cookies, and sessions, and restart the browser, to remove all residual components of Draft Blogger.

Use the Settings - "User settings" dashboard page.


Use the Blogger "User settings" dashboard page.


Change "Use Blogger Draft" to "No".

Then, hit "Save settings".


Finally, login to Blogger, properly.

Finally, log into Blogger, using a normal Blogger login. Avoid any bookmarks, favorites, or other saved access URLs. And, be sure to login properly.
