If yes, then read the complete guide where I will share with you different methods to Add a code box inside the Blogger post.

But, why do you need a code box in a blogger post?

In some tutorials, we want to share some code with readers to copy and implement the steps. But If we simply paste the code in the blog post then it becomes hard for readers to copy the code properly.

Sometimes the codes look ugly and take up a lot of space in the blog post section. So we need a code box with scroll functionality to solve the issue. You can use a text file link instead of showing the codes in plain text but it is not always feasible as we share multiple codes with very short lengths.

So Follow the below steps to Insert the code box on the blogger website.
