Bloggers Trapped In Draft Blogger

As many bloggers discover the new and shiny features offered in New Blogger June 2008, currently being tested in Draft Blogger, some decide
This is all that I need!
and don't look back. They go to their Draft Blogger dashboard, and select
Make Blogger in Draft my default dashboard.


Some of the latter decide later that the grass is not quite so green, after all. Unfortunately, getting back into the other pasture with the main herd isn't always possible.
Although I unchecked the box, it will not go back to the normal Blogger dashboard. This I find very frustrating.


There may be a workaround to the problem, though.
If you go into Draft Blogger and click on View Blog....when your blog opens...right up at the top right hand side...click on New Post and it should open in Blogger.


Essentially, load the blog from the "View Blog" link in the dashboard. From there, you can get into post editor using
  • The "New Post" link in the navbar.
  • The Customize ( - Posting) link in the navbar.
  • The Quick Edit pencil at the bottom of each post.
Hopefully, one of these links will work for you.

As a final resort, use the supplied Blogger User Settings wizard, when necessary.

Thanks for pointing this out - it's great to have an exit plan before changing things.

Some time ago I had an issue with not being able to post pictures. Someone suggested I try In Draft. So I bookmarked it, never quite sure about making it default. I am glad I did that. I have both bookmarked, but use the regular most often.

Thank you for posting these bits of help.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger . My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead? It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing . This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
