Blogger, a mess

[As seen on May 2, 2012.]

The “new look,” the new Blogger interface, which renders Blogger more or less useless on the iPad (among other problems), was to be imposed on all accounts in April. That hasn’t happened, nor has there been an update to the message seen above. Is the delay prompted by the problems users have identified? Is anyone home? Hello?

Google, please be advised that better communication would make it easier to believe (even if mistakenly) that you care about Blogger users.

Michael, I'm a bit of a neophyte in these matters, but are you referring to the blogger editor or to the blog itself?
My particular grouch is with the "dynamic view". I don't like it but it does give you access to new "gadgets" which are unavailable in the "simple view".

Michael Leddy said...

Yes, the editor. I do like the stats (though they appear to include spam traffic). You can switch back, at least for now, by clicking on the gear (upper right on the dashboard page).

The dynamic view is also non-functioning on the iPad — just a frozen screen.

Thank you for the information, Michael.

You’re welcome, Barnaby.

P.S.: I just realized that the stats are available from the old interface (complete with spam referrals).
