Thank You very much!
And i thought i would mention that the editing pencil did not appear until i closed blogger and then opened it once again.
i had tried reloading the page but such did not reveal the editing pencil.
I have checked your mentioned option yet not showing the quick edit pencil in my site? Need any template codes customisation? please help me.
I follow your guide but not show pencil button.
I use the Emporio theme. The show edit button is greyed out. So, I’m seeking a work around.
I’m having the same issue – it is grayed out and I cannot check it.
How do I enable quick edit for posts and gadgets? I use this extensively
I am asking for newer themes that hide this feature
We need to check the theme you are using.
It looks like this is no longer available, did Google take it out?
I haven’t got a “Show Quick Editing” option. It’d be nice if there’s some HTML I could add to my CSS template.
