I'm creating a Blogger template. I have an external CSS file that handles the bulk of the styling.

However, I want to be able to color my blog post titles easily through Blogger's Template Designer. So I added the following snippet to my Blogger template. But it doesn't work.

How can I add a variable to my theme that can be customized in Blogger's Template Designer?


<Variable name="posttitlecolor" description="Post Title Color" type="color" default="#000000"/>

.post-title {
    color: $(posttitlecolor);


Over four hours of research, trial, and error has produced no results, so I would be extremely grateful for any help.

There was a problem with Blogger. I signed up for a new account, used the exact same template, and it worked.
