Rearranging Widgets in Blogger

I had come across this issue... when I try to rearrange the position of widgets using Layout, it will show some error...

Here is how to arrange widgets directly using HTML code...

Find the Widget

We need to find the widgetId... if you edit a widget, there will something like this in the address bar "___widgetId=HTML10___", that is the widgetId for that widget...

Edit HTML

- Go to Edit HTML under Layout...
- Backup the current layout
- Uncheck "Expand Widget Templates"
- Go towards the end of the HTML source
- You will find something like this...

<b:widget id='HTML2' locked='false' title='Categories' type='HTML'/>

There will a list of these, each line corresponding to each widget...
- Just rearrange the lines for rearranging the widgets... the widgetId will help you to find each widget...

Try it... comments please...
