4910 - Blogger trick

Just in case I haven't told EVERYONE about this, here's a way to get back to bloggers old posting page. Elephants Child found it on another blog.

Let's start by finding your blog id. If you go to your design page, it's in the pages URL.

It's where the x's are. My id is 8 numbers but I've seen others of various lengths. So let's say yours is 1234567890. Now save YOUR id somewhere. Write it down, save in a file.

This is all one line - (word wrap broke it into two pieces.)

Now put your own blog id where 1234567890 is in the URL.

Now you can put that URL on the bookmarks bar. Click it and will take you right to the old posting page assuming you've stayed logged in. I haven't tried by not being logged in. If you log in with the new blogger, you can still click on the bookmark and it will bring up the old editor.

And now that I'm looking at the URL, I'm betting you can replace #editor with #design and go to the old design page. I'll be right back. ....... ....... ....... .......


So how long do you think we'll be able to do this before they shut it off?

I hope it lasts quite a while. At least until they have continued tinkering with the current version.
Incidentally, has anyone found anything that New Blogger does better?

EC - I haven't found anything better. It's just different or worse.

Hi Mike -- Do you mind if I amplify this post by linking to it in my Tuesday post about New Blogger?

Mike said...

DSWS - Not at all. Was everything clear enough? Sometimes when I'm thinking of things to type, they don't come out exactly right from the ends of my fingers.

This is great information, Mike. Thank you for sharing this with us. I got this heads-up earlier from Infidel753. I tried it and it worked. Thanks again!

DG - Everyone is trying to pass it around as much as possible.
