- The back button of the Internet browser is more often not working than it does.
- No filtering and searching of posts at the same time.
- The blog overview offers a "New Blog" button, whereas a "New Post" button, would have been much more useful.
- The interface has little to no contrast, it's all white with very light grey. Loss of orientation guaranteed.
- The posts overview is now multi-line, that is each post now occupies two or even three lines in the "table" of posts (depending on the browser width). (Unfortunately, this is also the case with WordPress).
- Each post has to be marked for use of the line break tag (br). Formatting with regards to line breaks/empty lines has become more cumbersome.
- Pages (not posts) created with the old editor cannot be edited directly (using the little pen symbol) anymore. You have to go via the "Pages" page.
- In general, navigation around the interface has become a nuisance.
But it's not all shiny in the WordPress world as well, starting with the conversion process of the blogger posts I was trying to migrate from blogger to the new site.
- Colors are sometimes not converted, especially when used in conjunction with the bold style tag.
- Picture sizes are not converted. The migrated picture is always shown in the original size.
- Picture alignment is always set to left (and I had most of the embedded pictures set to middle or right.
- For customizing the blog in certain areas (colors, for example) you have to pay.
- Whereas advertisements on blogger was an opt-in, you have opt-out for ads and you have to pay for avoiding ads altogether (although I haven't seen any of them yet).
Post Scriptum: In the meantime, I have already started the migration process, and my plans are to switch on October 1st to WordPress. I will give notice (and more details when this is happening).
