Additional Blogger Options

Currently FW only allows Archive, Profile, Posts, and Header for customizing a blog in blogger. I need to add “Labels” which is a gadget that Blogger offers. However, I can’t add this and keep the same design. Is there any way to add the code in or to increase the Blogger options in Freeway?

Thanks
Josh

I know “Labels” is an option under the Blog Post action in FW, but I would like to add the Label categories to the sidebar, which is not supported (to my knowledge) with the Blogger actions in FW. You can do it in Blogger, but it doesn’t retain the formatting previously set in FW.

Hi JAC,

Currently the only way to change the appearance of the unsupported widgets is to add your own styles into the head of the page. If you add the Label widget in Blogger, then back in Freeway open the Page menu and select HTML Markup. You will see a large dialog box with a field for text and a popup menu, select Before from the popup and paste the following into the field:

.Label { color: #123abc; font-family: Helvetica-Neue,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; } // Targets all text in the Label widget .Label h2 { color: #456def; font-size: 18px } // Targets the title in the Label widget

An example of this working can be seen here:

The template used can be found here:

Hope this helps!

Joe

Old thread revival!

I had this same problem, but the above fix doesn’t seem to work for me.

It was sitting in the head section next to the Google fonts bit, but when I try to save it, I’m unable to do so, instead getting the message: Error parsing XML, line 145, column 13: Open quote is expected for attribute “type” associated with an element type “style”.

I think I must be doing something wrong since when I swap over templates I don’t get the alert message about losing widgets, either.

Gavtro,

Could you post the HTML that Freeway wants you to use to create the blogger template on something like Gist then post the link here? That will help us diagnose the problem.
