How to Add More Widgets, When Blogger Won't Let You

Pin It

I run across this problem a lot, both in Blogger's templates and within custom templates that I've used.  You have this section that you want to add something to, but Blogger just won't let you.  It usually looks like this:

If you notice, in every section, there's an "Add a Gadget" option, but in the line where "Pages" appears, where I would like to add an Adsense widget below, there isn't an option to do so.

In order to change this, we're going to have to go back to our favorite screen, the "Edit HTML" screen.

Make sure you check that "Expand Widget Templates" box, to ensure that you are seeing all of your code.

Using "Ctrl + F", search for "crosscol" and you should get a section that looks like this:

<b:section class='tabs' id='crosscol' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='yes'>

See where it says "maxwidgets='1'" ?  Simply change that 1 to any other number.  Once you've done that, Save your template and return to your Edit Layout screen:


Voila!  Now you can add another widget to that section!  Give yourself a big pat on the back!
