I'm trying to host a blog on Blogger with a custom domain.

It's all good except the annoyance of many workplaces blocking the Blogger website using web-filters, including mine.

This is causing the blog not to render/function properly.

I can see in the Google Chrome developer tools that even though it's on my custom domain, it ask for a lot of resources from blogger.com, e.g.,

https ://www.blogger.com/static/v1/widgets/1535467126-widget_css_2_bundle.css

https ://www.blogger.com/dyn-css/authorization.css?targetBlogID=12418145&zx=54164c77-4da2-4fc7-b3b6-5cf274c9c3b9

https ://www.blogger.com/static/v1/widgets/2885176887-widgets.js

I'd like to replace these with custom links. Having said that, I don't see any reference to these in my template file.

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about HTML. – Vidar S. Ramdal Nov 25 '14 at 10:19
  • Question should be migrated back to webapps: it's about how to control where Blogger looks for certain things, not about the HTML itself. – MaryC.fromNZ Nov 26 '14 at 10:49

The short answer is that you cannot control things that you cannot see in either your template or the Blogger interface.

The process of rendering your blogger-posts into webpages involves Blogger combining your posts, your template, and components from their "engine" (wrong word - but I'm not sure what the right one is). There are some aspects that you have no control over. Widgets are a particular one.

You can work around the issue for photos, through: Photos are stored with a blogspot URL if uploaded via blogger's post editor. But they get a googleusercontent one instead if you upload them first via Google+ Photos (or similar) and then just use the URL to load tehm to your post.
