How to Add the Quick Edit 'Pencil' Button?

>> Browse templatesMoney tips64 comments

The top image shows the Quick Edit button (the yellow pencil) in a blog post. Some of the older templates provided here don't have the Pencil button on even if you opted it to be on from the Layout page.

There are 2 things you have to do to turn on the Pencil button.

1. Modify the XML code
Here's what to add in the XML code so you can have the Pencil shows up on your blog posts when you're logged in, to make it easier for you to edit the posts.

If you're editing the XML code online from the Blogger Layout > Edit HTML page, make sure you click on the Expand Widget Templates box.

Inside the XML (or HTML) code, search for the string 'data:post.editUrl'. The code section should look something like this if you don't have the Pencil button on.

<b:if cond='data:post.editUrl'>
<span expr:class='&quot;item-control &quot; + data:post.adminClass'>
<a expr:href='data:post.editUrl' expr:title='data:top.editPostMsg'>
<span class='quick-edit-icon'>&#160;</span>

To turn on the Pencil button, replace the red line on the code above with the blue line from the code below (as you can see, the rest of the codes remain the same):

<b:if cond='data:post.editUrl'>
<span expr:class='&quot;item-control &quot; + data:post.adminClass'>
<a expr:href='data:post.editUrl' expr:title='data:top.editPostMsg'>
<img alt='' class='icon-action' src=''/>

2. Select the Quick Edit Button
Go to your Layout > Page Elements > Blog Posts Edit tab, and click on the Show Quick Editing box to turn it on. That's it.

Thanks, this worked.

kanditheemliveblog October 15, 2008 10:09 pm  

wow it's very easy. it work for me

Anonymous December 13, 2008 4:12 am  

It worked! I can't thank you enough for sharing this tip!

Note: you won't see the pencil in "Preview" mode. Just mentioning that, because that threw me off for a little bit. :)

Meggy978 February 04, 2009 9:45 am  

FINALLY worked for me. Thanks!

And a special thanks to Dragonetta for the "Preview" tip. It didn't show up for me either until I saved and Viewed Blog.

@ Meggy

You're very welcome! Glad I helped! :)

BTW, I found out a little something else: what's really important to remember also is to allow third-party cookies. When all else fails, that WILL make the pencil show up.

Thanks now i have easy step to edit posting

super iota May 06, 2009 9:03 am  

After trying many sugestions from across the web, THIS ONE WORKED! Thank you so much.

Your writing is VERY CLEAR and easy to understand. The use of the colors to confirm which lines of code you are editing is SUPER helpful.

Jots May 26, 2009 8:50 am  

I could kiss you!
I have been looking for help on this for the longest time. Was even considering removing my theme just to be able to use the edit button. I hated going threough the customize link in the Navigational bar just to find the edit posts section.

Thank you verrrry much!

Jots May 26, 2009 9:09 am  

Pencil Edit fix much appreciated. Thank you!

By the way, do you happen to have a solution for doing the same for the "reaction buttons" that also seem to be missing from my blog and XML code?

Would really appreciate it if you could aid me in solving this one too..

I have linked a post on my blog to your pencil fix - will link to you for a reactions fix as well.

Agin - My Thanks!

Annndd voila! I tried someone else's blogger pencil fix because I just changed to a new template, and it didn't work. Yours did. Simple.

Thank you so much.

Gina January 30, 2010 7:38 pm  

Checked my HTML and the code is right, yet I still can't get the pencil. This is weird, I have another blog with the same template and I never had that problem with it.

Is there another cure?


N.L.G. February 04, 2010 5:23 pm  

@ Dragonetta

How do you enable 3rd party cookies? My pencil still isn't showing up.


N.L.G. February 04, 2010 6:15 pm  

Okay, I think my problem is that I recently got a new domain name (switched from the one) and for some reason, that's the reason why it doesn't allow me to quick edit.

Any way around this?


Sony March 22, 2010 12:10 am  

Awesome!!! Thank you so much for your help - I had tried everything else and nothing worked until I came across your blog!!! You rock!!!

Perri May 09, 2010 12:48 pm  

Fantastic. That was a really annoying glitch to troubleshoot. The code walk-through plus user comments about the preview and third party cookies in combination were exceptionally helpful!

Now... this is the perfect template.


Osmanian January 15, 2011 5:43 am  

awesome. Simply superb. Thanks alot. Ummmmaaa...

The initial phase in keeping away from default is to profit that is required is being obtained. Numerous understudies commit the error of accepting abundance supports that they don't require particularly with the goal that they can utilize the additional money.
