[code lang=”xml”]

<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;’>

<b:section id=’meta1′ showaddelement=’no’>

<!– widget must be a of Type = ‘blog’ to have posts data exposed, and must have a unique id –>

<!– Empty Includables(functions) to output nothing, You must keep them ): –>

<b:widget id=’Blog2′ locked=’no’ type=’Blog’>

<b:includable id=’nextprev’/>

<b:includable id=’backlinks’ var=’post’/>

<b:includable id=’post’ var=’post’ />

<b:includable id=’status-message’/>

<!– Loop Page Posts (only 1 in a post page )–>

<b:loop values=’data:posts’ var=’post’>

<b:if cond=’data:post.labels’>

<!– If the post has labels, make Meta keywords by looping lables –>

&lt;meta name=&quot;keywords&quot; content=&quot;<b:loop values=’data:post.labels’ var=’label’>
<data:label.name/><b:if cond=’data:label.isLast != &quot;true&quot;’>,</b:if></b:loop>&quot; /&gt;
