How to add gadget or adsense above your blogger header

Must Read

     This simple tutorial is for bloggers who are using a template or theme that does not have the "Add Gadget" option in the header section when viewed from you Dashboard > Layout. The absence of this option can affected your plan of extending your blog design to the header section. It can also prevent you from adding or displaying Adsense in your header, above your header banner too. For the Wordpress users, I am sorry this tutorial is not for you but for bloggers using the Google Blogger platform. Please guys, before we move to how to edit your template to enable this feature, please and please, do not not forget to BACKUP your template before we proceed. This is to avoid any possible mistake from affecting your blog. Although this template edit is safe and easy, but one still needs to play safe. You know what I mean.

To enable this feature, please follow below steps carefully. Before editing yoyour theme, below is how your template might possibly look:

After login to Blogger:

1.) Go to Template > Edit

2.) Within your template code, click any part of the code and from your keyboard, hold Ctrl and F together to pop-up search box. In this search box, search for  showaddelement='no'>  in your theme.

You will find line of code that will look like this: <b:section class='header' id='header' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='no'>
<b:widget id='Header1' locked='true' title='YOUR BLOG TITLE(Header)' type='Header'/>

Hint: you can also use your template-editor search tool to look for a key phrase like "id='Header1'

3.) From the searched line of code, change maxwidgets='1' to maxwidgets='2' and showaddelement='no' change this to showaddelement='yes'

4.) Save your edited theme and click your LAYOUT to view your header.
