Damn New Interface!

Well, I don't know about the rest of my fellow bloggers, but like Ray experienced a few days ago, today, Blogger "upgraded" Soliloquies to the new interface. Let me just say that it sux - big time. I was hardly able to post this morning, since in the "New Post" box, there is just a smidgeon showing at the top and there was no way I could type anything. I just barely managed to click on a tiny section of the "Add Image" icon, which did allow me to post some photos. But even with the photos I did manage to post, only 8 of 10 showed up and they are not in the order I had arranged them. I've switched back to the old format - for now. I know this isn't a long-term option, since Blogger will eliminate the old interface later this month. Does anyone know how to expand or get a normal size "New Post" box using the new interface? Thanks!

I'm sticking with the old format. I sure hope the old doesn't go away soon.

Unfortunately, I fear it will be gone by this time next week, Stan :(

Hi Koba,

I've never experienced the old format, having started my blog only recently, so I don't know what the old interface was like ... all I know is that the new one does work. Of course, it took me some time to figure it out, but I guess it would have been the same with old format ... the only thing that pisses me off is that I always have to check that pics and text aren't overlapping. Other than that, it seems to work just fine. If I managed to figure it out, believe me, you will, too, for I'm soooo NOT IT literate. Less so than most people I know, anyhow. I'm sure that you'll get the hang of it eventually! Good luck, anyhow!

This new interface is a bloody nuisance - if you ask me we should all decamp over to Tumblr; theres less interference there.

Thanks for all the comments guys! I think the new interface problem must be related to my browser (IE). I'm hoping there will be a way around it. I don't want to give up blogging just yet. And I have thought about Tumblr, but - aside from the new interface - I do like it around here. Thanks again!
