  1. 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.

    Peace……. francis

  2. I have checked your mentioned option yet not showing the quick edit pencil in my site? Need any template codes customisation? please help me.

  3. 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.
