You could use StackEdit (I'm the developer). It's a web-based Markdown editor and it allows you to publish your document (Markdown or converted HTML) on different sites. Amongst others, you can post on Blogger.

I am using Wordpress 3.0 so I am not sure if this applies to previous versions of WP or not. In the WP admin, go to Tools > Import. Then you'll see a list of import tools you can install and use.

This behavior isn't configurable. Both the current editor, the draft editor and the "old" editor use a combination of BR and DIV tags when they should be using P tags. It is a mind boggling decision, and it is utterly wrong. It explains a lot of the problems with inconsistent paragraph rendering in Blogger. Perhaps it works in IE, but it doesn't work ...

The most basic form is just wrap your code with <code> tags. If you want somthing more fancy, you can use http://codeformatter.blogspot.com/. Just paste in your code beforehand and it will give you the HTML to paste on your Blogger page. It gives nice effects like alternating color lines and line numbers. For example your example, using the defaults ...

No, this is not possible. It's not a features or manpower issue, its a server load issue, and it would affect all of us that publish or read blogs on Blogger / Google servers (ie, all bloggers). Having to check authorisation to access each individual post, for each viewer of our blog, would require code complexity, and cause unacceptable server load, ...

Set the word-wrap property to normal.

This is an HTML feature. You can either use the <acronym> tag, or a <span> element. If it's not an acronym, I'd recommend using <span> with a custom class attribute. The trick is to place the text you want to appear in the hint as the title attribute. Here's an example of the HTML: Can I get this <span class="myclass" title="as soon as ...

Basically you just need to copy the following code snippet to Blogger template between <head> and </head>. <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js" /> For a detailed instruction or other options e.g. changing inline math delimiters, please follow this post.

The MathJax people recently started allowing the script to be called from their server. I added a new post to my blog including the code you have to paste in your template html to get MathJax functionality in Blogger. With the new code you don't need to have MathJax installed in your own server. Hope it helps.

Alex Gorbatchev's SyntaxHighlighter is one of the most commonly used by software-related blogs for code highlighting. It lists several blogs that provide steps how to integrate it with the Blogger service.

You shouldn't use br elements for separating paragraphs. From the HTML5 specification: br elements must be used only for line breaks that are actually part of the content, as in poems or addresses. A paragraph should be enclosed in a p element. The div element doesn't add/change any meaning. At most it changes the styling of the content (via CSS; ...

Sweet! Blogger in Draft just implemented a feature to exclude your own visits. It does not seam to work, yet, though. Update: This cookie does not seem to hold it's value and work in IE (8). I realize it is just a "draft" feature, but I'm considering using the HOSTS file instead. Update 2: Even when the cookie maintains it's value in non-IE browsers, the ...

There is NO way that I know to do a complete backup (defined as an off-line copy that you can restore from). You can export your post and comments via Settings > Basic > Export Blog - and this will let you re-import those posts and comments into the same or another (Blogger) blog. You can save your template via Design > Edit HTML > Download full ...

You can hide them from the Public Albums but you can't really hide/remove them from your account without affecting Blogger. If you will start uploading many images on Blogger then you will have to buy more storage somewhere. This somewhere is the Picasa.

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

According to this Blogger Status Report posted in May 2011 they replicate data of all blogs across multiple sites: Blogger maintains replicas (copies) of blogs in multiple locations so if one copy becomes unavailable — maybe due to a cut network cable or loss of power — blogs continue to remain accessible. However, if the data you store in ...

Add the following in the <head> section of your Blogger template. Enter this code below the Home Page code above you have just entered: <b:if cond='data:blog.url == "http://url of your ...

No, you cannot change it. If you do choose to create a new post and move the old content (best done by copy/pasting the HTML), then you could set up a custom re-direct from the old post to the new one, using the features recently introduced for this. Sometimes I just keep the old post, and put a note at the top saying to see XXX for an update. This is ...

Your domain at GoDaddy points to the IP address at Blogger where your files that make up your site are located Locations Name - GoDaddy Files (HTML)* - Blogger *The DNS record is indeed at GoDaddy The HTML, settings, and much of the post-contents are indeed stored on Blogger/Google's servers.

As the screenshot shows, you're currently in HTML editor view, which has only the options that you see. Click on Compose on top left of the editor to see other options.

I have found the solution myself. Google used to have a feature Publish to Blogs under Publish to the Web on Google Docs/Drive and it had the option I was looking for. But sometime back Google dropped this feature very quietly and now there is no direct way.

I think that "Cross-posted on the Gmail Blog" on the page you refer to is just another way of saying "Same content also posted on the Gmail Blog". Some specific platforms (e.g. Usenet) have a built-in mechanism for "cross-posting" (e.g. a way of tagging content so that it shows up in more than one context). There is no such general mechanisms for the web, ...

Click the "Settings" link for the blog you want to stop following. A new window will pop up asking you to sign on with either google or other options.

On the edit posts screen, click the label to select all posts with it applied and add the new label to all of them (Label actions -> New label). Then just delete the label.

You must configure your domain and create a CName record that points to ghs.google.com from your subdomain (blog in this case). Then you can use blogger's interface and tell it to use blog.mydomain.com. The instructions vary by host, but Google has a basic article on this. An alternative is to use 4 A Name records that point to Google's server's IP ...

One new option has just opened up at "Settings › Search preferences" in the blogger interface: Detailed here, it looks like: Caveats Doesn't appear to allow redirections outside the domain Not clear what the mechanism of redirection is in an HTTP sense (although it should be easy to find out) Update: It seems you may now be able to specify a ...

It seem like Google does not enable HTTPS for more than the login process on Blogger. The main reason for this seems to be that using HTTPS is very resource intensive. See this Google Blogger support tread.

You can't add a <div> tag in Blogger comments. As far as I know, only the following tags are supported in comments on Blogger: <br> <em> <strong> <b> <i> <a>
