Blogger Theme Data Tags for Widgets

Below is a list of all the Blogger Widget’s and tags available for each widget. This list is most likely incomplete but will hopefully provide you with more information than the original Google Documentation for this subject. I have found all of these through guessing, looking at Google Themes, from the small parts of documentation out there and by sheer luck. If you have any data elements that we miss, it would be highly appreciated if you could tell us so we can include it in our list below.

We also have created a custom Theme for Blogger which creates tables with all the widgets so you can visually see the values of each data tag. You can download it at the bottom of this page.
