Blogger allows various gadgets or widgets to be included in Blogger blog. Also, apart from the default Blogger widgets, we can also include HTML or JAVASCRIPT codes in Blogger blogs. At times, we may not like to display the widget on all pages. Instead, we may want to hide widgets on certain pages. In this post, we shall see how to 'Hide / Show Blogger Widgets/Gadgets In Home Page, Post, Static Pages, Archive Page etc.'

Suppose we added a Popular Post Blogger Gadget/Widget in a Blogger Blog. And we want to display the Popular Post Widget only on the home page but not on any other pages. Then we can use Blogger conditional code to control the display of the widgets. Similarly, we can use Blogger conditions to display or hide on others.

For the purpose of this example, let's assume the following steps:


1) Login to Blogger and navigate to LAYOUT
2) Click "Add a gadget" and add a new POPULAR POSTS gadget anywhere desired
3) Save the arrangement
4) Navigate to Template /  Theme
5) Click on EDIT HTML
6) Click JUMP TO WIDGET and click on the POPULAR POSTS gadget
This will take us to the code for the POPULAR POSTS gadget.
7) In the code section for the POPULAR POST widget, find "<b:includable id='main'>".
Every Blogger gadget will have <b:includable id='main'> section.

8) Right after the <b:includable id='main'> statement, include a Blogger condition.
9) Right before the end of the 'includable' black for main - '</b:includable>', add the end of the Blogger IF condition.



Blogger Conditional Tag
Blogger Conditional Tag syntax looks like this:

<b:if cond='ADD_CONDITION_HERE'>
ADD CONTENT HERE
</b:if>
  • The Blogger conditional tags syntax start with <b:if> tags and a cond attributes. 
  • Condition need to entered as the value of the cond attribute. 
  • Every opening  <b:if> tag need to be closed with a closing </b:if> tag.
If the above condition is met, the content in between is display or the code in between is executed. 



Various ways to display content using Blogger Conditional Tags: 

Now, depending on our requirement, various Blogger conditions can be used to display the POPULAR POSTS gadget on various types of pages or URL.
