How to Add a Custom Top Banner in Blogger

This great question came from Cava. She wanted to know how we put this extra advertisement on the top of our Blogger blog.

By default, Blogger offers you a static blog header including title and description of your blog. Sometimes you might want to add something else on the top of your blog header, like we wanted to add StyleLoving advertisement.

So lets add a new custom header to your blog. This is fairly simple, takes 5 mins max. :)
  1. Navigate to your Blogger Dashboard.
  2. Click on your Blog Title (in our case Bloggerial).
  3. Move on to Template tab from the left pane.

Click Edit HTML button.

Tick on, Expand Widget Templates option.

Now search for following or similar line of code in your template which relates to your blog header section and alter attributes using regarding attribute information indicated.

Maximum Widgets in Header Section

This attribute specifies the maximum number of widgets can be included in header section. The default value is 1. So, by default, you can't add widgets more than one for your header section. By changing this value, you can allow adding more widgets for header section.

i.e: <b:section ... maxwidgets='2' ...

Enable/Disable Adding New Elements

Though you specified a new maxwidgets attribute value, you may not see Add a Gadget link at Page Elements page until you change this attribute value to yes. Change value to yes as you gonna add new custom header.

i.e: <b:section ... showaddelement='yes'

Now you can add custom header for your blog. But before you proceed, let's remove current header on your blog. You can find the line similar to below, just after the line of code

Change the locked attribute value to false.

i.e: <b:widget id='Header... locked='false'...

Now Save Template.

Go to Layout tab.

Now you can see in your layout above header there is one Add a Gadget link. Click on the link to implement custom header.
Hopefully you got it working. :) If not, please comment.

  2. Hi =) I've tried this on my blog but I think my html is different, you see there's not a "maxwidgets" in the code and I think it's odd but it doesn't appear with Ctrl + F and I also tried going to the Layout Tab and editing the Header section, now I can see the image I want to show but it doesn't appear when I acces the blog. I hope you can help me (Btw, I already had the Header section as "locked = 'false'")

  3. Thank you so much for this. I have to create a blog for my English exam {It's Digital Communications} and FINALLY I can remove the pre-set header. I found it useful to also change the maximum width and height of the header as well; especially if you have an image which is really big. ^o^ Thanks again!

  4. Ugh, an hour later and it would not let me save the template. Add a gadget link was under my header and there was no "implement custom header" this is so confusing for a beginner!!!

  5. Nice one.) Did lost a couple of hours with this problem before I find your tutorial. Nice one.) Thanks

  16. It worked like a charm, thanks so much! I didn't want to remove my old header, but to add a banner underneath my header and pages to link to a cookbook / ebook bundle that's going on sale in 2 days. So all I did was follow the steps up until maxwidgets and showaddelement. The only problem is the banner is aligned to the left. Is there a trick to centering it? Thx :)

    Đang muốn đẩy cửa tiến vào thì từ trong phòng truyền ra tiếng thở dốc, còn có tiếng rên rỉ nữa.

    Lưu Phong kinh hãi, thanh âm này hắn không hề xa lạ, chính là thanh âm của nữ nhân trong cơn hứng tình

    Mẹ kiếp, chẳng lẽ lão bà có tiểu bạch kiểm khác? Lưu Phong sắc mặt biến đổi, quyết định xem đến cùng là có chuyện gì.

    Kiếp trước trên TV, hắn thường thấy cảnh này. Theo đúng cảnh trên phim thì đầu tiên Lưu Phong đưa tay, thấm nước bọt, sau đó đục thủng một lỗ nhỏ trên cửa sổ. Bất quá không thành công. Mẹ kiếp, cửa sổ này làm bằng kính à.

    Đến đây thì đạo diễn bảo phải đi vào, không đục cửa sổ nữa, mà phải đẩy cửa tiến vào. Lưu Phong chân đạp Thất tinh, nhảy vào bên trong, nép mình vào tủ quần áo.

    Lúc này thanh âm nữ nhân rên rĩ đã trở nên rõ ràng.

    Lưu Phong một bụng tức tối, khẽ ló đầu ra nhìn, đã thấy trên giường một thân ngọc thể đang uốn éo vặn vẹo, song thủ không ngừng tự vuốt ve thân thể của mình.

    Áo ngực màu trắng đã bị tuột xuống một nửa, hai vú trắng muốt không ngừng run rẩy, phập phồng. Nữ nhân trên giường rên rỉ, một tay vuốt ve ngực mình, một tay chà xát dưới vùng không gian giữa hai chân. Khắp phòng nhất thời tràn ngập xuân quang rạng ngời.

    Lưu Phong lúc này mới nhìn thấy rõ ràng, đây không có nam nhân nào cả, mà là Kim Vận phu nhân một mình tự giải quyết.

    Không hổ là đang ở độ tuổi sung mãn. Lưu Phong âm thầm bội phục Kim Vận phu nhân, dục vọng của nàng quá mạnh mẽ. Hai ngày trước hắn vừa giúp nàng thoải mái xong, bây giờ đã lại như thế này rồi…

    “Công tử…Phong nhi…”

    Đột nhiên nghe Kim Vận phu nhân gọi tên mình, Lưu Phong bỗng giật mình, thầm nghĩ giờ đây mình đã là Nguyên Anh kỳ, sao lại có thể phát hiện ra mình được?

    Ngay lúc này thì Kim Vận phu nhân khẽ tách hai chân ra, tốc độ của bàn tay không ngừng tăng lên, miệng cũng la lớn hơn, không ngừng gọi tên Lưu Phong, vẻ mặt cực kỳ hưng phấn.

    Lưu Phong nhất thời hiểu được chuyện gì xảy ra. Thì ra là Kim Vận phu nhân vừa thủ dâm, vừa tưởng tượng đến hắn.

    Đã như vậy thì còn chờ gì nữa. Lưu Phong ám muội nở nụ cười, cởi quần áo, đi đến cạnh giường, thấp giọng nói: “Phu nhân, ta đã tới.”
