Google announced that it has made some adjustments to the template HTML editor for Blogger. It now supports line numbering, syntax highlighting, auto-indentation and code folding.
In a post on the Blogger Buzz blog, Google software engineers Samantha Schaffer and Renee Kwang walk you through the steps for moving the date of a blog post from above the post title to underneath it, as an example.
“Finally, we’ve added a ‘format template’ button that automatically cleans up the indentation of the template, and made it possible to search for text by pressing ‘Ctrl+F’ once you’ve clicked into the editor,” they write. “To find and replace text occurrences one by one, use ‘Ctrl+Shift+F’ or to find and replace all occurrences at once, use ‘Ctrl+Shift+R’.”
According to the engineers, this project was conceived as part of Google Australia’s BOLD Diversity Internship Program.
