Blogger: How to remove the post slider

If your template comes with a post slider pre-installed, you can remove this at any time.

Note: If you decide to remove the slider, the only way to bring it back is to re-install the template. See section at the bottom of this article for more information.

To remove the slider, follow these steps:

1. Go to the Layout section of your blog’s dashboard.

2. Click the “Edit” button in the gadget called “Posts Slider”.

3. Click the “Remove” button in the window that pops up.

“I accidentally removed the post slider! How do I get it back?”

Due to limitations with the Blogger system, the only way to bring the slider back is to re-install the template. You can download your template and installation guide from your email receipt.

Please note that by re-installing the template you will lose any changes made in the “Template” section of your dashboard. So that’s things like fonts, colours and layout options. You may wish to take note of these before re-installing the template. All of your content, pages and gadgets will be kept safely.

Hopefully Blogger will improve their dashboard in future so that we can add sliders via a theme options page (much like our WordPress themes. You may be interested in our migration service).

      Hi Sonia, the “Post Slider” gadget should be empty. The main reason the gadget exists is just to give you the option of removing it easily.

      If the post slider is not working, you may wish to check this guide.
