Publishing Externally? Here's What You Get

Every day now, you see the question

I just upgraded my account and blog to New Blogger. Where is my Layouts / my Labels / my link to Upgrade my template?

and you look at the blog URL (when it's included), and it's not

And the answer is always that, when you publish externally (aka FTP publishing), you don't get any of those features. New Blogger 2006 requires publishing to, for maximum benefit.

Logging In To Blogger

With the coming of New Blogger, logging in to the right account (Old / New) should be more straightforward.

  1. Clear cache and cookies, and restart your browser.
  2. Login using the new, improved Blogger Login screen.

You'll have separate, well defined choices.
  1. Old Blogger, using your Blogger account.
  2. New Blogger, using your Google account.
Make the choice wisely. Blogs using the old template may or may not be visible and accessible from New Blogger, and vice versa. If you login, and your blog isn't listed, or if listed isn't accessible, then logout, and login again carefully.
