Template Tags: defined

Blogger tags look a lot like HTML. One difference between them and HTML is that case is important.

<$BlogSiteFeedLink$> - Outputs your site feed's URL inside a <link> tag:

<link rel="service.feed" type="application/atom+xml" title="Your Blog's Title" href="http://yourblog.blogspot.com/atom.xml" />
<$BlogEncoding$> - Inserts the encoding setting from the Settings | Formatting tab into a content-type declaration, like so:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" 
   content="text/html; charset=<$BlogEncoding$>" />
<$BlogLanguageDirection$> - Outputs either "ltr" (left-to-right) or "rtl" (right-to-left) based on the blog's language setting. E.g. Hebrew and Arabic blogs will be right-to-left.
<html dir="<$BlogLanguageDirection$>">
<BlogSiteFeed><$BlogSiteFeedUrl$></BlogSiteFeed> - Displays the blog's site feed URL, if it has one.

 

<$BlogMetaData$> - Inserts all blog metadata (including the above tags) via one tag. here's sample output:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" 
    content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<meta name="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing" 
content="true" />
<meta name="generator" content="Blogger" />
<link rel="service.feed" type="application/atom+xml" 
    title="DanoTestMule" 
    href="http://testmule.blogspot.com/atom.xml" />
<link rel="service.post" type="application/atom+xml" 
    title="DanoTestMule" 
    href="http://www.blogger.com/atom/6602135" />
<link rel="EditURI" type="application/rsd+xml" 
title="RSD" 
href="http://www.blogger.com/rsd.pyra?blogID=6602135" />
<meta name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX,NOFOLLOW" />
(This last tag will appear if your blog is set to unlisted.)
<$BlogPageTitle$> - Gives your published blog pages smart titles ("Blog Name" for the index page, "Blog Name: Date" for archive pages, and "Blog Name: Post Title" for post pages). Best used in a template's <head>, in between <title> and </title>.

<$BlogTitle$> - The title of the blog.
<$BlogDescription$> - The description of the blog.

 

<Blogger> & </Blogger> - These tags contain the content that will be output for every post on the page. Most of the following tags should be inside these to work properly.

<BlogItemTitle>
<BlogItemURL>
<a href="<$BlogItemURL$>">
</BlogItemURL>
<$BlogItemTitle$></a>
</BlogItemTitle> - These output each post's Title, linked to their associated URLs if you're using the link field feature. Remove the second, third and fourth lines to unlink the titles.
