Putting The Post URL In The Title

This tweak isn't necessary in Blogger Beta - it's already there. That was a bit of a pleasant surprise, when I tested my first Beta blog. Why is it necessary here? I'll explore that question later.

For right now, let's focus on making this work. It's a pretty simple change. You have to edit the template, so start by backing the template up.

Now, go into the template editor, and find
<h3 class="post-title">
<BlogItemUrl><a href="<$BlogItemUrl$>" title="external link"></BlogItemUrl>
<$BlogItemTitle$>
<BlogItemUrl></a></BlogItemUrl>
</h3>

and replace that with
<h3 class="post-title">
<a href="<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>" title="permanent link">
<$BlogItemTitle$>
</a>
</h3>

Save, then Publish. Simple enough?

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
