Blogger Ticks and Fixes

Some of you may have noticed a few changes that Blogger has made if you change or update your blog's sidebar information often or lately. Specifically under the Design tab (which used to be called Layout) / Page Elements, your sidebar area.

This is very important for anyone using any Blog design created by me:

If you have tried to add or update HTML/JavaScript or any Text area and hit save, you will get this error:

This is because Blogger now requires you to place text in the Title area. If you have my design, you know that I do not use TEXT titles in the sidebar, I use IMAGES. I have always left the Title blank. Apparently Blogger is going to fix this so that the Title is not a requirement, but in the meantime, it is.

So there is a quick fix that you can add to the Title area EACH TIME you update, change or add HTML/JavaScript or Text. I have no idea if there are more sidebar elements that are requiring a Title, but these two I do know need the Title. If there are more needing it, just do the same for each.

To fix this, please add the following piece of code that you see in the screenshot below:

Like I said, this is a temporary problem that will be fixed according to Blogger. If anyone has any questions or is still having problems, please do not hesitate to contact me using my contact form on my main website here: Contact Me
