While I was customizing my layout yesterday I noticed my Attribution (i.e. the text that reads ‘Powered By Blogger’) had somehow found itself stuck at the top of my Blog and wouldn’t let me highlight it and drag it to the bottom. After researching how to move it I realised that the widget was locked and a simple HTML modification would solve the problem.
Finding the right code in your HTMLTo unlock a widget, first open up your HTML and make sure you tick ‘Expand Widget Templates’. If you want to find a widget that is locked, simply search for:
locked='true'For instance the code for my Attribution widget looked like:
<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'>To search for other widgets, change the widget id, or just search for:
Locked=This will show you all the widgets which can be locked or unlocked. To make it locked change the value to true, or to unlock the widget simply change the value to false. Also, locked widgets can’t be removed, so if you were to unlock the Attribution widget, you can remove it although that may be against Blogger’s terms and conditions.
