Blogger Edit HTML Not Saved Even After Saving – Problem Solved

This is a new problem that quite everyone is experiencing when saving their HTML file after editing using the new Blogger Design.

It was annoying when I edit my template and saved it just for me to go back and realized that I couldn’t because I keep on getting browser Javascript alert saying “You have unsaved changes that will be lost” even after saving the code. I closed it several times to click on the save button over and over again just to get the same alert when I tried to leave the Edit HTML page.

I thought it was the template that I was using so I change it to the default blogger template but to my surprise, I still got the same alert.

The crazy thing about this is that if you click preview, your changes will show in preview but the changes refuse to be implemented.

The simple and obvious method that occurred to me to solve this is to

1. Copy all the HTML codes and paste it to an elegant code editor like Visual Studio Code after making the required changes using blogger editor and also after previewing it to be sure that the changes are correctly made and there no errors e.g. Error 400

2. After copying, save your code in the code editor on your PC with the required format e.g. .XML

3. Restore your newly saved code by uploading it your blog.

PS:
This is a general problem on all blogger template that blogger.com should correct.
