2. Backup your template by downloading it to your computer. This will ensure that you can upload your template before these changes in case of problems.

3. Replace the following line of code (about 5-10 lines from the top):

with (highlight code, Ctrl + C to copy)

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &ampquot;item&ampquot;'>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> | 
<data:blog.title/></title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageTitle/></title>
</b:if>
