Blogger, which is owned by Google, has redesigned its site to make it easier to use and added new features, including posting by e-mail.

This is a much more user friendly interface. More and more sites are moving to tabs for ease of navigation.

All the account info looks correct, except the 'enable post pages' in archive settings. All my settings on this were reset to the default no.

It's also much more politically, er, technically correct ;). Stylesheets instead of stacked tables, and so on.

I did find it interesting and admittedly a bit odd that Google outsourced the design work to an outside firm. Surely Google must have enough design smarts in-house? I wonder if it was more of a PR move than anything else.

yep, if you mean css layout. Whole thing looks great to me, plenty to learn from (design-wise). Pity the code doesn't validate though, that would've clinched the 'correctness' vote.

Indeed! That's why I said "more" not "completely" ;)

You'd think that with such a cool redesign effort they'd go all the way, eh? But I've read that they're aware of the un-validation at this point and are working to fix stuff.

Anyone here a blogger tag expert?

There seem to be a lot of nice features within tags (especially the conditional ones), and it seems possible to use the name of the article as the archive link instead of a date stamp - I just haven't figured it out yet.

If anyone does, can they please sticky me the code for it?
