Beta not have lost my feeds

Converted to Beta, largely because I figure pretty soon Blogger will start pushing and stop bothering with the old model. Also category lables could be vaguely useful.

Can anyone confirm that the old feed still works, or have I lost subscribers with this move? Also, is Beta giving people the shits for any other reasons?

Feed is coming through fine and you have 21 subscribers!

The feeds still work. Beta seems to have settled down now. I've been using it for a while.

You will find that you can't comment on non-beta blogger blogs unless you're signed in to your beta account, though, which is a tiny bit annoying.

I had GIANT issues with beta, but it's got into it's groove a bit now.

The main thing that bothers me now is more to do with commenting - if you type a comment then realised you're not signed in, so you click 'sign in to beta' and it LOSES YOUR COMMENT. OR if you are logged into gmail with a diff account, it may publish your comment with your REAL name from your REAL gmail...

That's quite concerning on a few fronts! I'll be wary. Thanks all. Will go throught the laborious task of re-linking over the next couple of days...

I thought beta sucked and went to wordpress after I kept losing stuff, but it does seem to have settled down somewhat. Having labels is good.

I've just about sorted things out now and really like it. Much quicker and smoother, despite the gmail accounts hazard.
Labels are great

How does this feed thing work?

I can't work it out.

Feeds... go to bloglines dot com, start an account, then forget all the fancy features just click "add" and put the URL of any site you want to read regularly in there, hit return, it finds the feed or feeds, you can hit preview and see what you're getting, then you subscribe and get all the new posts from all the sites you like in one place.

Loses some niceties but very efficient for tracking lots of blogs. In particular saves clicking repeatedly on sites that don't update much.

Google reader does a pretty good job, too.

You're coming through loud-n-clear in Google Reader.
