Recently while trying to rearrange the ‘Page Elements’ for one of my blogs on blogspot, I got this error bX-xvu2n5

blogger error bX-xvu2n5 (Click to Enlarge)

Initially I thought the error could be because I am using draft.blogger.com so I switched back to the normal blogger.com -no solution. Then I tried switching to IE6 from Firefox 3.0.1- again no solution .I tried searching on web, the nearest I reached was this report-bug form to Blogger Team.

Well, here is my work around to this problem:image

  1. If you are trying to add a gadget(if not then skip this step), open the Add a Gadget page element and make changes as required. The gadget will automatically get saved in the 1st position.
  2. Make sure that you have given some name to the new page element. It would be required in the next step.
  3. Go to ‘Edit HTML’.
  4. Press Ctrl-F and enter the name of page element. You will now reach to the page element defined in step 1 (or your desired element if you have skipped step 1).
  5. Here you will find a no of widget id’s starting with <b:widget id
  6. Now, cut your widget from the given list and paste it at the required place (in the list itself).
  7. Confused? ok if you have something like
<b:widget id='HTML7' locked='false' title='' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='LinkList2' locked='false' title='Name1' type='LinkList'/>
<strong><b:widget id='Profile1' locked='false' title='About Me' type='Profile'/></strong>
<b:widget id='HTML8' locked='false' title='' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='LinkList9' locked='false' title='Name2' type='LinkList'/>
<b:widget id='LinkList10' locked='false' title='Name3' type='LinkList'/>

and you want to shift About Me to a place between ‘Name2’ and ‘Name3’, cut it from that place and paste it in between ‘Name2’ and ‘Name3’.Then it should look like this:

<b:widget id='HTML7' locked='false' title='' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='LinkList2' locked='false' title='Name1' type='LinkList'/>
<b:widget id='HTML8' locked='false' title='' type='HTML'/>
<b:widget id='LinkList9' locked='false' title='Name2' type='LinkList'/>
<strong><b:widget id='Profile1' locked='false' title='About Me' type='Profile'/></strong>
<b:widget id='LinkList10' locked='false' title='Name3' type='LinkList'/>

Click ‘Save Template’ and Done!
