How To Grab A Post In HTML

This is a "sticky" post.

Go to your page for BBT. Click on "edit." The post will come up on your screen.

If the post shows in "Compose" mode, click on the "Edit Html" tab, then highlight and copy. You've grabbed the post and can then paste it into the "Edit Html" screen at your own Blogger site.

Remember: you grabbed the post at the "Edit Html" tab, so paste the post in the same kind of screen - not in the "Compose" screen.

Okay. Tell me an easy way to do it. And what IS it we're doing!?

Screen shots? How do I do those?

The Merry Widow said...

To the right, just below your tool bar are some icons, home, rss, printer PAGE tools, click on PAGE, go down to either; Save As...or Send Page By Email...then follow the directions.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Uh... I speak 3 languages, but understand very little of TMWese!

The Merry Widow said...

JM-Do you see a little house icon? That is the "Home" button. And to the right of it is an orange square with a white dot and 2 curved lines? That is the RSS Feed button. To the right of that is a printer? That is yor printer button. To the right of that is a page with a bent down corner ad a pencil, that is the "PAGE" icon that I am talking about.
If you clic on it, a drop down screen will appear, it will say;
New window C+N
Cut
Copy
Paste

Save As...
Send Page By Email...
Send Link By Email...

And several other things that aren't pertinant.

JM-I was explaining to, AOW, how to explain to, Z, with a picture of the screen and what she was talking about.

Z said...

I can't do it. Gotta tell you.

"Go to your page for BBT?" What page?

I'm screwed, folks. I cut and pasted and the diagram doesn't come with it.

ugh.

The Merry Widow said...

Z-Go into the draft post, click on the HTML tab, cut from there INTO THE HTML TAB ON YOUR NEW POST IN YOUR BLOG, and paste. Preview, publish.
Voila.

An easier way to do a screen capture is to push the Print Screen button on your keyboard, then right click in a document or windows paintburush program and click "paste."

This takes a snapshot of everything currently on your monitor.

Beamish said...

oops diregard last post.. I took it literally...

Oh well, now you know how to screen capture something.

Beamish said...

My friend Pinky of "Cheese In My Shoe" wanted to join so I got her a copy of the post and changed the draft to have a link to her blog in there.

Freedomnow said...

Perhaps you meant BLT.

Thanks to Heidianne I found a new blog.

Now let me get to work a trollin' and a spamin'...

Freedomnow said...

To control screen prints I like to use third party software.

This way you can pick a small portion of the screen and dont have to copy the whole thing and edit it later.

Just go to download.com and punch in "screen print".

Its good stuff.
