Add a Custom Header in Blogger

Step 1. In your dashboard click 'Layout' > 'Edit Html'

Step 2. Find the following code in your blogs html : (Click Ctrl and F for a search bar to find the code):

<b:section class='header' id='header' maxwidgets='1showaddelement='no'>

Note 1. - 1 Maximum widgets in header section. This attribute specifies the maximum number of widgets can be included in header section. The default value is 1. So, by default, you can't add widgets more than one for your header section. By changing this value, you can allow adding more widgets for header section.

Note 2. - no Enable/Disable Adding New Elements. Though you specified a new maxwidgets attribute value, you may not see Add a Gadget link at Page Elements page until you change this attribute value to yes. Change value to yes as you gonna add new custom header.

Step 3. Dont save your template!

Now you can add custom header for your blog. But before you proceed, let's remove current header on your blog.

Note - If you cant find all code try this <b:widget id='Header1' locked and you will see the rest of code there...
