I have been planning to post on Food Blogging for a long time, I realized I am never going to get on unless I just go ahead post something on this.

Though today's post is nothing related to Food Blogging, I thought it does help in that area.

For the Blogging Marathon, we use the same code linking to the Blogging Marathon page. It becomes tedious to copy paste the link on daily basis. This is what I have done by default to my editor. I use Post Template feature in blogger to overcome this task.

Every time a new member joins us, it becomes extremely tough trying to explain what I want. So decided that a pictorial will surely help in overcoming the problem.

Here’s how to incorporate this great time-saving feature in the old layout
  • Log in to Blogger.

  • Click Settings.


  •  Click the Formatting tab. Scroll to the bottom and locate the Post Template section.
  • Enter the  BM Code in the box.  For formatting, such as italics or bold, use basic HTML codes.  
"Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 14"
  • Click Save Setting
 Make sure the changes are saved, this you know when you get Settings were saved successfully.

  • Click New Post.  The text will appear in the edit box automatically.
Change to Compose to see the hyperlinked text!

Hit enter to type in your post, publish.


How to create post Template in the New Layout in Blogger


  •  Log in to Blogger.


 Click on the "More Options" next to the New post as shown in the picture, then click on "Settings"



  • Next from the left navigation, click on "Post and Comments"

  •  In the box given for Post Template, paste the code.
  • Since this is created for BM, you can see the BM Code in the box.  For formatting, such as italics or bold, use basic HTML codes.  
"Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM# 14"
  • Click Save Setting

 Make sure the changes are saved, this you know when you get Settings were saved successfully.


  • Click New Post.  The code you give will appear in the edit box automatically.

  •  Click on HTML View to see the code in html language

  • Next click on "Compose" and you will find the text in the hyperlinked form!

Hit enter to type in your post, publish.



Happy Blogging!

Which code I enter?
What is the code?

VK Sheyad The code or text can be anything that you want all your new posts to have. For example if you want to link to your Index in all your new posts, then you can include that code in the setting that I have mentioned. By doing this, you need not keep doing it every time you do a new post. Hope I am clear now. Thanks for dropping by.
