Confusion About The New GUI, And Reading List Management

As the New Blogger GUI becomes more of a standard, in the Blogger blog world, we're seeing evidence of confusion about the differences in the icons and the menus.
How do I UnFollow a blog?
is one question that we're seeing, from a few confused blog Followers, this week.

The answer is right there, in front of you, when you're looking at the Blog List / Reading list. The Gear icon, to the right of "Reading list"(in the New GUI), replaces the blue "Manage" button at the bottom of the page (in the Classic GUI).

Just click on the Gear icon, and you're there, ready to Manage your blog community. But don't confuse the Gear icon to the right of "Reading list", with the Gear icon at the top of each dashboard page.

That would be fine if they worked. I can go to each blog that has GFC, or follow at the top of the blogs and unfollow there, however, it was much easier and quicker when the buttons worked. It's the blogs that don't have those options that I don't know how to be rid of.

gaYte,

You really should fix the Shift key on your keyboard.

That suggestion aside, did you really get the error message mentioned, from just clicking on the Gear icon?

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.
