Basic layout of blogger theme

Blogger theme structure or layout is similar to html layout or syntax.

But in blogger theme we use XML code so it's structure is little different from html layout.

Below is basic structure or coding layout of blogger template -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang='en' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' xmlns:b='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/b' xmlns:data='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/data' xmlns:expr='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/expr'>


<!--- css , script, meta tags and title etc,---->



<!----- contents which shows on blog -->

Necessary code of blogger theme design

You need to write some code which is necessary for creating blogger themes.

Below is code for design blogger theme

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang='en' b:layoutsVersion='3' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml' xmlns:b='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/b' xmlns:data='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/data' xmlns:expr='http://www.google.com/2005/gml/expr'>


    <meta charset='UTF-8'/>

    <meta content='width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0' name='viewport'/>



    /* write Your Css Here */



<!-- CSS code to style Layout options ---!>




<!---- Header Area----->


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



<!---- Content Wrapper ---->

<div class='content-wrapper'>

<!---- Main area blog posts ---->


<!--- Necessary - Don't Remove-->

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

<b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog' version='1'>




<!---- Sidebar Area Start ----->


<b:section id="sidebar" class="sidebar" showaddelement="yes">




<!---- Footer Start ---->


<b:section id='footer' class='footer' showaddelement="yes">

        <!-- Footer widgets -->





In above code you can add any section, widget, and div, class, and I'd according to your need.

And if you want to remove sidebar then remove entire aside area.

Is this the only code required?

No this code is simple layout code where I adds all required section for blogger theme which should be in any blogger theme.
