    3 valve amplifiers and drinking tap water why do we need a use by date for something that has trickled down through a fjord for centuries 1 33 pm Lyle Sanford RMT said I m on Safari 6 0 and it s all worked well though I prefer how it is today in that I don t have to click a second time to see the whole post Also on the active view it wasn t always clear whether I was seeing the entire post or not One minor point is that when it was on active view I always got spinning gears for a few seconds before seeing anything the way it is now it came up right away 1 47 pm Pliable said Andrew wrote about the new Google Blogger editor Surely Google can do better to which I can only add Hear Hear Thanks for the comments everyone and keep them coming It looks as though the old style format will stay at least until someone comes up with an analogue interface However I do wish this format centred the headline short headlines have a gap between them and the centred header image There probably is a way to centre the headline if I delve into the template HTML but that will have to wait 2 29 pm Lisa Hirsch said I use Google Reader so the style and formatting of blogs I read could change 200 times and I would not notice Re Invesp do not assume their listings are either current or accurate Two blogs in their supposed top 25 haven t been updated in the last couple of years and Opera Chic is almost certainly in top three most read music blogs You may be much more or much less read than your ranking there indicates 8 49 pm Mike said I ve been using Windows Live Writer as an offline composition and editing tool for Blogger for several years It s vastly superior To work around formatting issues in Blogger I generally use tables to keep text and images better anchored 9 05 pm Dinos Zoumperis said The new format works fine with Safari 5 1 7 However i can t say that i clearly prefer the one over the other I guess it s the content of your blog that matters mostly to i Greetings from Athens GR 5 52 pm Robin said I much prefer the old style I do not know whether it had anything to do with the change but my sense is there were none of the longer posts much appreciated where you stretched out a bit on a topic while you were experimenting with the new format 11 25 pm Michael Strickland said I much prefer the old style Thanks for going back 1 54 am Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015
