I know I just changed my blog template but that was only because the two said items were missing more than anything.
The template says that they are there..........but they are not visible. You cannot click and drag them around. You cannot eliminate them either.
Then I started looking at some blogging friends addy's----they don't have them either? When did that happen? Did they tell us they were changing it? I don't care if I am not mobile or dynamic. Just quit making it harder to post!
I use the B (favicon) button to get to http://www.blogger.com/home and nav bar to search my blog primarily for the archived posts that missed labeling. It helps when posting and I need to refer back. At least the post settings are is not trying to dock when I am trying to use it for the moment anyway.
For now I added a google gadget in the sidebar for that purpose. My most immediate thought is that they want us all to migrate to Google + badges and +1 since those are two new gadgets------oh and be available to others on mobile devices. Trying to make inroads into Facebook territory? +1 sounds like pinterest to me. I get a big Blue B button instead of the orange one I want back?
Ipads, android phones, tablets etc are NOT going to be happening at my house as I cannot afford it. It annoys me that everyone just assumes you have one and takes the attitude that you are living in the dark ages if you don't. SIGH.
