Unable to edit header via "Layout"


#1

My website no longer lets me edit the “Header” section via the “Layout”. Although it shows the “Header” area, when I click on the edit button nothing happens.

I imagine I might have accidentally removed some code that enables the edit facility to function; does anyone please have any idea how I can repair this, what code needs to be present etc?


#2

Can you explain up with some screenshots?


#3

Sadly not - as a new member of the forum I cannot paste images! But it is pretty easy to explain: I go into “Layout” to adjust my Header “gadget”. However, although the edit button is showing bottom right, when I click on it, nothing happens.

At the moment I have an image that is too big next to my header text. I want to upload a smaller image but cannot do this, as I cannot edit the header via Layout.

OH! Sorry :frowning: Never faced this type of problem. Try to Contact Blogger Support


#5

Have you tested your template file in another blog if not than test it


#6

Yes, just done that and the problem remains the same in the other blog, so I am guessing there is something in the underlying code? Thanks for trying to help.


#7

can you tell me the name of your template? Actually this doesn’t concern with blogger’s API in anyways,Although would like to check it :slight_smile:


#8

upload your xml file here to find out actual problem in that template


#9

The theme is a “Simple” one I think. I have customised it to quite a degree.


#10

Sadly the system tells me that .xml files are not allowed to be posted.

Also as a “new user” I cannot upload ANY files yet!


#11

Upload any other site(google drive, mediafire, dropbox etc) and link it here

#13

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, this site will not let me insert or paste links, because I am a new user!

I have all the code in a Google Drive doc - I just can’t share it via this site! Arrrggghh…

You can send link by giving space in it.

I have put a space after https:
