As a core tech blogger, you will agree with me that you’ll definitely have to blog on how to’s solution regarding html codes, CSS, etc such that explain, direct, and prefers solutions on how to carry out a certain function in blog post. 

Most of these tech blogging html and CSS related post includes how to remove, hide, or delete a certain unwanted links from blog; how to add feature to blog, or generally design or redesign certain blog function as the case may be.

On several occasion while trying to make some blog posts where I include certain CSS and html codes that could show my readers and prospective visitors how to carry out one edit or design blog function or the other, I often came across some difficulties of some html or CSS code disappearing when I click preview or hit publish button. Some of those codes do shows while some entirely disappeared.

It is a bulging issue and seems frustrating especially when those disappeared html or CSS codes hold the bases of such blog post. The perfect example is in this blog post “how to remove subscribe to post: comments (atom) from blogger”. Some of the codes offering directives to that blog post show while the skin code blatantly refuses. I had no choice than making a screenshot of the skin code, enlarged and paste and upload it as an image just to get through with my blog post.

On discovering a perfect solution to this problem through a friend and business partner whom I reference so much – Oscar Lee by name, the CEO of, I therefore through his permission, decided making this another blog post, which I certainly believe would go a long way in helping some other tech bloggers out there with similar problems.
