WFMW – Blogger HMTL Gadget Help

If you are on Blogger, you may have noticed a recent annoying change with your gadgets.

Are you getting this error when you try and post an HTML/Java Script Gadget with out a title?

As of last week, Blogger made an update to the HTML/Javascript Gadget making the Title field required – meaning you can not post an HTML Gadget with out a title.
Thanks to twitter, when I called out my complaint, Krystyn of Krizzy Designs was quick to offer a suggestion….and it WORKED!!

just place this code

in the title box then click “Save”

This code will allow you to post your Gadget without a title.

You will have to do it every time you update the gadget -

Blogger says –
“based upon user feedback, we will soon be removing that requirement.”

But until they fix it, you can work around it this way!!

    Thank you for posting that. I saw it a week or so ago on a blog and didn't make note of it and then needed it!
