Drag-and-drop customization of the new Blogger’s new template system (layouts) does not work in Safari, nor does fonts and colors customization. You must use either Firefox or Internet Explorer 6+ to use these features of the new Blogger. (They also work mostly with Opera 9, though with some visual glitches.)

FTP blogs are not publishing their site feeds in RSS format. Until this is fixed, either use the atom.xml feed instead (most feed readers that accept RSS accept Atom as well) or use: to get your blog’s feed in RSS format. Update, 11/21: This has been fixed. FTP blogs now publish an rss.xml file.

Some users are having problems accepting reader and author invitations on the new version of Blogger in beta, and see an error message when they log in to accept. While we sort this out, the workaround is to send the invitation to a different e-mail address. The invitee may still accept the invitation with whichever Google Account he or she wishes. Updated, 11/20: This is now resolved.

Switching from current Blogger to the new Blogger in beta will cause your most recently updated 25 posts to appear as new in feed aggregators. Update (11/11): We have solved this. Unfortunately, the fix will cause all blogs currently on the new version of Blogger to appear as new in feed aggregators. We apologize for this one-time annoyance.

Update (Nov 10): We've added Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, and simplified Chinese support to the new version of Blogger.

Some blogs configured with a non-english language cannot be displayed. We are working on this issue. A workaround is to change the blog's language to English until the issue is resolved.

Update: These blogs are displaying in English now. We are working on a fix to display them in their intended language and will have this available ASAP. Thanks for your patience.

Update(11/9): We resolved this last Friday.

The new drag-and-drop template feature, Layouts, is not available for blogs published via FTP. Update, 12/18: Because Layouts relies heavily on new Blogger’s dynamic serving of pages, this is unlikely to be supported soon if ever.
