Remove the Dashed and Dotted Lines in Blogger

If you don’t use Blogger, then you can disregard this post! If you do and you use the Simple Template, keep reading!

I use the Simple Template in Blogger and customized it from there. I know a lot of other bloggers do too. It’s the easiest and cleanest template on Blogger…for now. If you didn’t notice, at the bottom of all the posts there is a string of dots and a dashed line at the footer. I’m going to teach you how to get rid of it for a cleaner look. You don’t have to know HTML to get it. You just need to know how to read and follow instructions.

Go to your Blogger dashboard. Click on Design, then Edit HTML and DOWNLOAD YOUR TEMPLATE. If you’re in the new Blogger Draft dashboard, click on Template and then scroll down and click on Backup/Restore Template. It’s good to always save your template on your computer in case you make a mistake and you can’t fix it! Now you’re ready to edit.. Click on Edit HTML in Blogger Draft.


Hit ctrl + F together on your keyboard and type in dashed then press enter. There should be only one result. Delete the word dashed.

Moving on to the dotted line… Hit ctrl + F again and find $(paging. Delete $(paging.background).

Click on Preview below the HTML box and scroll down to the bottom of your blog to see if the dashed and dotted lines are gone. Save your template. And you’re done!
