Any tech-savvy readers out there? I have a bit of a problem with my blog posting and figured this may be the best way to find help. A few months ago, when I would post on my blog, it looked something like this:

Now it looks like this and is extremely more difficult to use:

Basically every post involves copying and pasting code every time I want to put a picture in, because it only pastes pictures to the top. Anyone have any idea why this happened and how I would go about getting it back to what it was? Thanks!


  1. I think it is just a blogger burp. My does that every once in a while and if I just wait, it goes back to the other way.

  2. It LOOKS as if you're stuck in a different editor than what all the non-tech-geniuses of the world are used to. You're in the COMPUTER person editor. To go back to the NORMAL person editor, which is what I'd imagine you want more than I want chocolate right now--which is a LOT, then you should go to your dashboard.

    Are you there?


    You should probably keep this screen open at the same time, so you can read my instructions, which (might) help you. If these don't help you, then Blogger is brokenated.

    Click on the "Settings" tab. There. Good Melynda.

    There is a bunch of stuff here, and most of it makes little to no sense, so you should ignore most of it.

    Go all the way to the bottom of the page, where a heading should announce, "Global Settings" in an official-looking print. Under the heading, there will be "Select Post Editor" in bold.

    If the problem is what I think it is, the bottom option will have a dot next to it. The bottom option is "Hide Compose Mode," and it is evil. We hate that option. You want the TOP option, which is the "Updated Editor." It is better. It is magical, and it lets you move your pictures around if you want to.

    I hope this helps! If not, I'm @darcybear on Twitter, so give me a shout.

  3. @Laura Sure enough, that was it. Problem fixed- thanks so much for your help :-)

  4. Thanks! I didn't even know that there was another editor! I thought that Blogger could do better, but never thought about checking the settings for that better way! Thanks again!
