The Correct Way To Find Code Within HTML

I finally figured out why Control F does not help me find anything inside the HTML of my blogs. I wasn't doing some things right, it seems, after a Blogger update. 

Try this:
  1. Go to Template > Edit HTML
  2. Click Format Template (used to be expand widget templates)
  3. Click within the HTML box on the first line
  4. Press CTRL F on a PC or CMD F on a Mac. A search window will appear in the HTML editor in the right upper hand corner. Use this to find pieces of code
  5. Once you have typed the code into the search bar, hit enter to find the code. Hitting enter multiple times will find each time the code is used.
A browsers own search function may not work in the HTML editor, so it is necessary to click into the editor first. It searches from top to bottom so make sure you click on the first line of code.

That's it!

  1. Thanks Brenda. Since blogger made the change in their format, I noticed Ctrl F doesn’t work as before. This really helps.


  2. This made sense to me today. Yesterday I could NOT find </Body and today with your help I got sitemeter up and running because you wrote this post. Thanks Brenda.
