If you already have a search box on your blog, thank you! I find this feature very helpful in locating past blog posts on my own blog and on the blogs of fellow bloggers when looking to refresh my memory or just to re-read a post. Without the search box feature, which allows readers to enter a few key words to quickly locate previous posts, it is difficult to reference older posts.
If you would like to add a search box to your blog, follow these simple instructions using the new Blogger interface/Dashboard:
- On the Blogger Dashboard, locate and click the "More Options" square (between the "Go to post list" icon and the "View blog" link.
- In the "More Options" drop-down menu, click "Layout."
- Click one of the available "Add a Gadget" links -- the closest one available to the top of your layout is preferred.
- From the Gadget List menu, scroll down, find, and click the "Search Box" feature. This will place the search box in the previously empty "Add a Gadget" area you selected. Click Save.
After the search box has been placed, it can be left in the current location or moved higher up on your blog if there is a space available. The higher it is placed, the easier it will be recognized by readers. To move it, just drag and drop it to the desired location by right clicking with your mouse and dragging it to the desired location before releasing the right click.
Finally, click the "Save the Arrangement" box at the top-right of the Blogger interface screen to save all changes.
