How To Skip Adding A Title In The Blogger Image Gadget

October 29, 2014

While I love a lot of the features the Blogger platform has to offer (after all it's free and gives the user a lot of freedom to personalize the looks of a blog), I sometimes bump into issues that can be pretty frustrating. Sometimes there's just no logic in the things that Blogger offers its users.

One of those things is the Image gadget. When you want to add it to your blog, you are forced to type a title above the image. Without giving it a title the gadget just won't work and refuses to save your image in your sidebar.

What makes no sense to me is that the Text gadget and the HTML gadget don't have this problem. You can either give these gadgets a title or just leave it blank and Blogger will save it to your sidebar without a problem. So why not give users this opportunity with the image gadget? I really don't know. All I know is that it can be pretty annoying, because sometimes you just want to upload a beautiful image and let the image speak for itself instead of adding a title text to it.

Fortunately for most of these Blogger issues someone has found a solution, and the solution to this problem is rather easy. All you have to do is type in this code in the title field:


Yep, that's all, just 5 little signs and you're done. On Blogger it should look like this:

Don't forget to save and your image will appear on your blog without a title!
