    Hi Tharun,

    I just used this technique, and i am getting the following error:

    Error parsing XML, line 11, column 16: Open quote is expected for attribute “cond” associated with an element type “b:if”.

    Where did i go wrong? Please help!

    Hi Tharun,

    I think the comment did not take code, I deleted – | data:blog.title part.

    Any way. I have another question:

    Can this trick work in WordPress? Because i hate using plugins in WordPress, makes it load slower.

    I am going to try this on WordPress soon!
