All your favorite blogging actions now have several shortcuts thus making your blogging experience even more worthwhile. We will also learn how to turn back to old blogger look or switching back to old user interface. Lets have a quick look at some of the important changes.

Dashboard

The Dashboard is now more organized and kept neat and clean. It's the first page you land on and it's the control panel from where you perform various actions like writing a new post, editing old posts, moderating comments, adjusting settings, tracking page views and post count, viewing stats and following your favorite blogs. Settings and blog customization setting options are tabbed inside the drop-down menu next to the Post List icon for a quick link to:

  1. Overview
  2. Posts
  3. Pages
  4. Comments
  5. Stats
  6. Earnings
  7. Layout
  8. Template
  9. Settings

Customizing your template

customize template

To customize your template click the Template tab and then you have two options. The Customize option will let you make changes to your design using Bloggers Template designer WYSIWYG (“What you see is what you get”) . WYSIWYG works only for template provided by blogger. If you are using a custom template then you go with the normal way of "Edit HTML"

You also have several options of choosing a blog templates either from dynamic views list, picture window, simple or others.

Overview

  2. The Update is really great I never thought of leaving older interface when i first saw the newer interface in 2011 but its feature attracted my like a bee who needs a juice of Flowers so i started using Newer interface it has many features which are beyond the description really hats off to Google and Blogger team who just totally make over Blogger.Now Blogger do looks like a website which is using 2012 technology.I don't think so any one will be using Older interface as newer interface is way way better then it.And comming back to you Sir well what should i say you are truly a Master piece for not only Pakistan but for entire world.you are the men who are giving the perspective to the entire world how good talent we Pakistanis are GEO Mustafa Sir....Love YOU

  9. I rather the old interface but the meta description for postings seems cool I guess, if it really helps who knows.

    The new features seem cool but very confusing when you go to it, could they create something that looks better and more user friendly.

    And it would not hurt them to create a contact form in the control panel.

  12. I think this is really bad news for all of us, and I am not sure if we would be still able to use "edit html" feature on custom templates.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I haven't figured out how you can look at your posts grouped under a label. The choice seems to be just ' All, Draft or Published'. So I usually switch between new and old interface.

  19. color choice is awful. check out my post today using new color choices, and last 700 or so using old. Colors were better under old interface. http://jianqchyun.blogspot.com/
    also cannot access dashboard in IE8 after upgrading to new interface, I have to use firefox.

  20. The colors of fonts on new interface are horrible if you have older or weaker eyes. I get headaches trying to use it. I will stay with older blogger formats as long as I can or until they darken up that font to at least a medium gray. I feel as if they are forcing those with vision issues OFF the internet, just you wait you young wippersnappers techy Google programmers till your eyes start to fail, and then tell me how much you like light gray!

  23. All views are respected. Since getting adjusted with the new interface would take some time.I am sure you will like it once you discover some of its great new features.

    @Haider
    Those SEO options is a milestone for blogger. Thanks for the logo remarks. I finally had to get rid of that childish logo. :d

    @Faizan

    Looks like you are really enjoying the new Bloger Dress up and this is great. As far as my contribution to blogging community is concerned then I am just a grain of salt dear. All praise goes to Allah the Mighty and readers like you who love and share the stuff else I am no different. Thanks a lot for all those kind words and remarks. Mean a lot. :>


    @Green bajgain
    I liked what you said. :d

    @thisismyheaven.com

    Bugs like?

    @Osho Garg

    I am sure just like other google products like Analytics and Webmasters, theme switching will be allowed for blogger too.


    @the blogger
    As I said it would take time to get familay with the new interface pal. There is a Send Feedback link just above the link for switching to old interface. :)

    @Preetam

    You can use the Edit HTML option. All options are available in it. Just explore it for yourself. :>

    @itshometome

    Thats true it lacks this option. Old interface provided label count and post display for a particular label. I am sure they will work on it.

    @LIMITATION
    Buddy the only way to reverse back all changes is to follow the tutorials in reverse order. Remove all the scripts and codes you may have added by following the related tutorials. Since everyone follows different tutorials and adds widgets from everywhere around the internet therefore codes would differ. So it would be difficult to write a generalized post on this.You can always ask me for any widget or plugin that may be causing problem in your blog and you want to know how to remove it. :)

    @Umesh Tarsariya
    Oh wow MashAllah thats so great. Now make sure you use Adsense wisely and may not violate any terms. I would recommend the following posts for you:

    1. Lost Adsense?

    2. Stop Misuse of Adsense

    3. Keep Adsense out of the reach of Children at home!

    Thanks for your kind remarks for the logo. I know the previous logo was giving nightmares to people just it did to you. :d


    @James
    I would recommend that you use Firefox or Chrome for blog editing purposes.


    @Carol
    I would surely agree with you on this point. I never realized the colour blindness issue linked with all of us. The current font styles and colours for layout buttons and links are surely dim and dull and lack contrast. You provided me with a great post idea! :)

  43. Hi, I was forced today to use the new interface and I hate it. I changed some content in one of my pages and hit update but when you try to view the page it states the page no longer exist. I clicked on "revert to draft" and saw the old familiar "publish button" and still nothing. I did not change the title of the page only the content. My blog is at CouponTerri.com and the page in question is the Winn Dixie Page. What can I do to get this page to publish. I left a message on Bloggers message board but no one ever responds. Please help!

  44. I HATE the new interface. If I click "new post" there is no option for me to add photos to my blog post. When I click on the drop down "wheel cog" in the upper right, I do not get an option to switch to the old interface. I HATE it!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it.

  49. In April when they forced the new interface on us for a short time, my posted images would push to the left and appear smaller. I found the old dashboard and used that after a couple days. Now that's gone. So, I was forced the change my template. I had backed up my template many times in the past in different places. I thought, even if I use a new Template I could revert back to my old one, if worse comes to worse. So now my blog has everything super spaced out. It's bigger and a bit slower then before. The pictures pop up well. Adding them is a huge pain and the HTML can easily get messed up. THE WORST PART IS MY OLD TEMPLATE DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. If I do try to go back, the blog messes up and get a bunch of numbers on screen. Any attempts to change the blog, even ones were I don't save have effects on the live blog as well. Often while changing this the blog loses all it's links and gadgets. It's horribly scary to use.
    I can't use quick edit tools anymore and the Facebook options have vanished as well. This sucks.
