Updating labels without affecting feed

As the new Blogger is out of Beta, I wanted to relabel my posts as "New Blogger Hacks" and "Old Blogger Hacks". Due to my prior experience, I was worried if all the posts will re-appear in the feed. But as Susan rightly pointed out in a comment, I used the Label Actions dropdown that appears when you goto Posting/Edit posts and thankfully the feed is intact (I was checking the feed once in a while with fast beating heart :)). So, it is safe to update labels like this instead of going to post editor and republishing. Thank you Susan!














(One useful tip: If you want to re-label all the posts under a particular label, it is better to first apply the new label to all of them and then remove the old label. Blogger doesn't have a way to list only unlabelled posts.)

lemonade, have you switched to new Blogger or are you still with old Blogger?

Ramani, this is out of topic of your post.

Do you have a hack to edit comments?

I used this hack to edit comments but with the new version of blogger is not working anymore. One thing is cool is, you can even add images to it, check here.

Could it be possible for you to make one for us? I think this is neat.

Raquel,

I am going to be out of town for the next few days. After I come back next week, I will see if this can be done.

Oh, the new Blogger creates all the feeds in most-recently-published order? Annoying perhaps, but useful. Explains a few things. Of course, I'll still be manually generating my main feed when I finally switch...

Singpolyma,

Yes, everytime you update a post (b it a label update), your post will come up in the feed.
