Now Geotagg your Blogger Posts

Dec.10.2008

I am seeing Geotagging feature in draft.blogger
Now, one can add info. about Location to the blog posts. It's looks same as the feature for Geotagging Youtube videos.
But still no official word on what it actually does, its use and its benefits. But, it certainly looks a neat little feature.

Here's a word from Blogger team on Geotagging

"When you publish your post, the geotag is displayed below your blog post as a link, which will open up Google Maps.

We also include each post’s location in your blog’s RSS and Atom feeds using GeoRSS, a standard for geotagging. This means that feed readers, map applications and search engines can associate your posts with their locations."
Quite a useful feature for travel blogs.

And yes there a couple of bugs in the feature right now.

Fix for blogs with customized template and not able to see the Location in the post.

In the Dashboard, goto Edit HTML

First and the most important step: Backup your template by clicking Download Full Template.

Now,Click the Expand Widget Templates

Use your Browser's search feature (Ctrl+F) to find the following line of code(or similar footer code line):

<div class="post-footer-line post-footer-line-3">

Just after this line add the following code:

<span class='post-location'>
<b:if cond='data:top.showLocation'>
<b:if cond='data:post.location'>
<data:postLocationLabel/>
<a expr:href='data:post.location.mapsUrl' target='_blank'><data:post.location.name/></a>
</b:if>
</b:if>
</span>


And it's done.
