Step 3
Customization
- Replace "http://www.fixmansion.com" with the URL of your blog.
Note:-
If you are using a free blogspot domain, always put .com at the back of your domain. Example "use "http://www.myblog.blogspot.com" instead of "http://www.myblog.blogspot.fr"

- To edit the text shown before the Sitemap finish loading, change "Loading, please wait for a moment..." to something like "Keep calm, Our Sitemap is Loading..." 

- In the above code, I used the color that suit the design of my blog, if you wish to change the color scheme, Replace "#FFFC03" with your colour code

Step 4
If you wish to disable Comments on this Page, Click on Option Tab>>Reader Comments, then select "Don't Allow, hide existing". Now click Publish, view the sitepage it should be running nicely. We have successfully added a Sitemap page to a blogger blog.
