Have you ever wanted to add some text or a link to the end of every post of your Blogger blog? If you're reading this, I'm assuming you do, and I'll be showing you exactly how to accomplish that. If you are like me, you might have thought it would have been quite easy using the Page Elements tool in Blogger to add the footer to every blog post, but it turns out it's not possible. The trick is to edit the blog template instead and add the desired text or HTML code to the correct location. Here's how...
Step 1: Log into Blogger and go to the Layout tab and click the "Edit HTML" sub-tab.
Step 2: Backup your template. Click "Download Full Template" and save it somewhere on your hard drive in case you ever royally mess up your template and need to start over fresh with a known-to-function template.
Step 3: Click the "Edit Template Widgets" check box. This lets you see all the template code you'll be adding your HTML code to.
Step 4: Search for "data:post.body" in the template using your browser. That bit of text signifies the end of the body of a post in your template. You'll be putting your HTML code directly after that.
Step 6: Click "Preview" and make sure it worked as expected. When you're satisfied with your footer and there are no HTML errors click "Save Template".
Piece of Cake!!
