Blogger: Show Post Snippet In Emporio Theme

Show Post Snippet In Emporio Theme Of Blogger

By default, the Emporio theme in Blogger does show post snippets. But if you want to show snippets in your posts, you need to edit the HTML and add some custom CSS. To know what to modify and append, you can follow the guide in this post.


WARNING! Before you modify the theme, make sure you already have a backup. If you don’t know how to create a backup, you can check my guide on  “How To Back Up And Restore Themes In Blogger?”
