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 to Blogger.

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.

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, ...

I just found out that if you publish your blog post containing p-tags right away instead of switching to the HTML tab first, then the p-tags stays. Example: <p> Here is a body text<br /> that is wrapped in p-tags<br /> </p> Goto HTML view. Enter the code above. Click the Publish button. If you try to look at the code in the HTML ...

Facebook automatically parses out some text it thinks is important from your website. Certain Open Graph Tags are respected to figure out what content to show. If you have control over the HTML on your blogspot website, I recommend placing a few Open Graph tags to give some meta-data about your page.

Yes, it's true. If you have a Google+ account, any image that is 2048 x 2048 pixels or smaller will not count against your total storage limit. If you do not have a Google+ account, any image that is 800 x 800 pixels or smaller will not count. Reference: http://support.google.com/picasa/answer/1224181?hl=en

Yes. Edit your template, and find this code: <title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title> Replace it with <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'> <title> <data:blog.pageName/> </title> <b:else/> <title> <data:blog.pageTitle/> </title> </b:if> An ...

That is the link to the Google Drive image viewer, rather than a link to the image itself. If you check the URL for the image when you visit that link, you get an URL like: blob:https%3A//drive.google.com/32efcf38-d7e6-4656-9046-eede4c4880f9 That's not useful. You need to do a little URL manipulation of your original URL to be able to hotlink it. You need ...

This worked for me: I had a blogger blog, and using Google's options, I redirected it to a real www.example.com domain. Now, AdSense ads would not show up on my blog. Solution: In Blogger dashboard, I clicked on Earnings. In the main menu, I clicked on "My Ads". The screen says, "Content > URL Channels" On this screen, I clicked "+ New URL Channel" I ...

The images in the folder(s) with the blog's name are the ones used. The second part of the url contains the actual key to the image: e.g. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tc0JaPm2Luo/VJqZUl8q-UI/AAAAAAAA5k8/fVCSrRSl7t4/s1600/Navy-F-18-Hornet-Christmas-lights.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-tc0JaPm2Luo/VJqZUl8q-UI/AAAAAAAA5lA/YMyATHLE0Fs/s1600/Navy-F-18-...

You need to use the "Edit HTML" (under Template) link and add the relevant stylesheets to enable the MathJax feature in your blog. Add the link to the script using the <script> tag and you should be able to get it running using Javascript. With that, you should create/edit posts using the necessary HTML code to make sure the math equations appear just ...

I'll rewrite @pajju's answer, because this was the path I chose and I think it works well, although I'll include examples. The source page is this: http://dvdotsenko.blogspot.in/2012/08/markdown-with-blogspotcom-and-bloggercom.html The basic idea is to write your markdown in HTML mode in a script tag: <script type="text/x-markdown"> #markdown ...

The day starts at midnight UTC according to this post. ... it appears that it's setup to reset counts for all blogs, simultaneously, at midnight UTC (aka "GMT").

There is no capability to do what you want within Blogger. Both their standard export, as well as the Google Takeout export produce XML. The only other option I can think of is some kind of screen-scraper. But TBH, scripting over the XML would probably be easier to do.

At the bottom of most Blogspot posts you will find a link like the following: Subscribe to: Post Comments (Atom) When you click on that it will show you a code dump. It is the RSS feed for that particular post, including all the comments. All you need to then do is look for the comment you're interested in and then go to the first <published> that ...

Blogger does not support relative addressing, so this is not possible. If you change your blog name, then: Blogger will change the names of links in your Pages gadget that point to your pages Blogger will not change any internal links in your blog. So you will have to manually edit each post, look at it in HTML mode and find-and-replace any links. This ...

I'm very surprised that the photos are still in your blog after you've removed them from your Google+ gallery - are you sure that it's not just a cached version that you're seeing. What Google have told us is that there is one set of photos, and that they can be accessed from either PWA or Google+ Photos, and of course they can be loaded (but not managed in ...

Unfortunately for you, that's not how Bloggers Error's and Redirections > Custom Redirects works: this tool can only be used to redirect one post or page within the blog's "domain" to another one within the same domain. Eg you can redirect from www.myBlog.blogspot.com/2015/01/original-title.html to www.myBlog.blogspot.com/2015/06/different-title....

To enable Follow by Email, click the Add a Gadget link from the Design -> Page Elements tab, and then select the Follow by Email gadget which should be at the top of the list. Once you add the gadget, readers visiting your blog can then just enter their email address and click Submit.

Under Settings > Posts, Comments and Sharing > Comments ... set Comment Location to Embedded. NB This certainly works on several of my blogs - I'm not sure if it functions the same way on all templates, though.

There is no way to prevent Blogger from doing this: the Post-editor does not support all aspects of HTML, and so some unsupported elements that you add will be removed (e.g., <p> tags), while others (e.g., tables) will be kept even though there is no way to create them in Compose mode. I do not have a list of which HTML elements are and are not ...

To embed “Enclosure Links” value, the conditional tag is <data:enclosure.url />.

What do you really want to achieve here? Removing some blog posts will not free up photo space - and there is in fact no limit to the amount of blog-post material that you can host within Blogger, apart from Photos. To free up photo space, you need to go into Picasa web albums and remove some photos. But if you don't want to do that, another ...

It is a good question and the very simple answer is: you cannot. Blogger does not support a last modified header. This page lists all the data points available for parsing and you will soon find that the dating options are limited. It simply isn't possible. If you are wanting to add the relevant markup to appease the Structured Data Tool then you can tell ...

I eventually just removed them manually. The quickest process I found for doing so was: Visit http://www.blogger.com/manage-blogs-following.g and log into your Google account if not already. Click on the Settings link next to one of the blogs in the list Don't click on Stop following this site in the window that pops up. Instead, click on the Sites you've ...

Where exactly do you want Markdown authoring to be available? If it's for posts that you write, then the modification would need to be to Blogger's editor, not to your template: even if you write in HTML mode rather than Compose mode, Blogger still validates the HTML before publishing the post. An alternative for posts would be if you want to publish ...

To just move the images off blogspot.com: Upload the image using Picasa-web-albums or Google+ photos first. Get the URL of the image file. then add the photo to your blog post uising the "URL" option on the file-upload dialog box. (NB you need to choose the picture-load icon from the Compose window, not the Edit HTML window - the latter does not have ...
