Notable Theme: How to show full posts on home page and show expanded label widget?

I was wondering two things that I can't seem to find on Google.  First, how do you make your posts show the full article on the website with Notable Theme? Second, how do you show an expanded Label Widget instead of a collapsed menu that the user has to click on? Thanks!

Hi Nate...


For both of these custom settings requires Theme > Edit HTML editing. How well verse are you working round your Blogger Theme codes?

If you uncomfortable, you may need to seek further assistance with a friend developer as it requires code editing in several parts of your themke codes.

If I manage to find one here (working solution) in this Help forum I will post back here.

I appreciate the responses, I'm not a coder, however.  I tried the second response and the code offered on that page does not appear with any search, even with parts of the code being searched within the theme.  Could there be an updated code that would do this?

I found the code at line number 3631 in the Notable Theme. Could you please check again?

You were right, it was there - must have been hidden from ctrl+f by the collapsible black arrows.  However, I copied and pasted exactly as instructed and it is still the same!  This shouldn't be so hard.

Hi Nate,

I'm not sure why the code doesn't work. Anyway, you can either contact the author of the article or post your question in StackOverflow.

I think this should work, some deletion & a 1 liner change. No changes to Blog1 widget. Backup Theme before proceeding.

Use at Own Risk. Further custom settings can be discussed at 3rd party help website like stackoverflow.com or Blogger Developer Group. Below tutorial should start your conversation there.

The purpose of this post is for education & learning. Author does not guarentee this working solution will work OR continue to work OR supported on future theme updates.

Newer Blogger themes (version 3) uses default Markups tags where users can customize HTML output without compromising existing widget codes. Using default markups, allows widgets to maintain default setup when moving in between themes/blog OR when re-setting any widget to default state.

If below is to complicated for you, you may need to seek some assistance with a friend developer & point them to this thread to make the changes for you.


Notable Theme: Display Full Post at Homepage/Index Pages.

  • Go to Theme
  • Edit HTML
  • find <b:defaultmarkups>
  • pay attention at bold attributes/tags and highlighted cyan.

    <b:defaultmarkups>
      <b:defaultmarkup type='Common'>

... {{ lots of codes }} ....

        <b:includable id='normalPost'>
          <b:if cond='(not data:view.isSingleItem or data:widget.type == &quot;PopularPosts&quot;)'>
            <b:if cond='data:post.featuredImage and (data:widget.type != &quot;PopularPosts&quot; or data:this.postDisplay.showFeaturedImage)'>
   
... {{ lots of codes }}... 
  
            </b:if>
          </b:if>
          <div class='post-content container'>
            <div class='post-title-container'>
              <b:include data='post' name='postTitle'/>
            </div>
            <div class='post-header-container container'>

... {{ lots of codes }} ....

            </div>
            <b:if cond='data:view.isSingleItem and data:widget.type != &quot;PopularPosts&quot;'>

... {{ lots of codes }} ....

            <b:else/>
              <b:include cond='data:this.postDisplay.showSnippet ?: true' data='post' name='postBodySnippet'/>
            </b:if>
            <b:include data='post' name='postFooter'/>
          </div>
        </b:includable>

... {{ lots of codes }} ....

  </b:defaultmarkup>
</b:defaultmarkups>

  • Pay attention to highlighted areas...     
  1. Remove highlighted yellow.
  2. Replace highlighted green with this <data:post.body/>
  • Click Save Theme


Notable Theme: Always display Labels Widget Expanded.

  • At Theme > Edit HTML
  • Inside any Label widget code block
  • locate below...

<b:attr cond='data:view.isLabelSearch' name='open' value='open'/>

  • Remove highlighted orange
  • click Save Theme

As much as I appreciate all of the great work you've done, I can't Ctrl-f anything except what's in the current window.  This means I can only find it if I can see it in the current view on my display.  So, needless to say, I could thus find none of this to replace/update.

At your Edit Code Panel leave your mouse cursor somewhere in the codes -- then press Ctrl F.

If you do not leave the cursor inside the code panel then it will bring up the search window.

Thanks for the tip, Irsah - I was able to find things this time.  The labels all show without being expanded now, but I'm still having the preview problem. I was able to fix this by (OMG) simply turning off the 'Featured Post' gadget.  I really appreciate all the help and I'm glad Google wasn't pulling an Apple move by purposely removing options.  I need to learn coding lol.

Glad you have everything in order. It was all a guessing game for us too, as there was not enough information provided -- especially regarding your current setup.

Happy Blog-ing!
