Since I am no longer doing blog design, I want to share this little tutorial on how to add a menu bar (and a few additional widgets – or gadgets they’re now called) to your Blogger layout. If you want your layout to look like the image below (circled items are the ones that will be added to your existing layout), follow these easy steps.
Login into your Blogger account.
Click on the Layout tab.
Click on Edit HTML
Press Ctrl+F to open up the “Find” box
Type showaddelement (all one word)
You will see something like this:
**ONLY WHERE IT FOLLOWS showaddelement. There should be about 3 places that you are going to change it from ‘no’ to ‘yes’. You will probably have to scroll down a tiny bit to change all of them.
Click Save Template
You are done! You are now able to add a widget above your blog posts, under your blog heading (or above it).
If you benefited from this tutorial, just leave me a comment. 🙂
