Putting The Post URL In The Title

This tweak isn’t necessary in Blogger Beta – it’s already there. That was a bit of a pleasant surprise, when I tested my first Beta blog. Why is it necessary here? I’ll explore that question later.

For right now, let’s focus on making this work. It’s a pretty simple change. You have to edit the template, so start by backing the template up.

Now, go into the template editor, and find

<h3 class=”post-title”>
<BlogItemUrl><a href=”<$BlogItemUrl$>” title=”external link”></BlogItemUrl>
<$BlogItemTitle$>
<BlogItemUrl></a></BlogItemUrl>
</h3>

and replace that with

<h3 class=”post-title”>
<a href=”<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>” title=”permanent link”>
<$BlogItemTitle$>
</a>
</h3>

Save, then Publish. Simple enough?
