How to Make the Blogger Posts Have a Calendar for the Date in

It's quite common to see calendar style dates next to some WordPress posts but for the Blogger platform it isn't always an very easy task to add this. But who said you can't do it? You need to look no further than this blog. In this tutorial, we'll learn how to create a calendar style date for your Blogger posts.


How to create calendar style dates in Blogger

Step 1. Go to Settings > Language and Formatting - Date Header Format and change the date format as you can see in my example below (put day first, then the month and finally the year)
 

Step 2. Then go to Template > Edit HTML


Step 3. Select the "Expand Widget Templates" checkbox

Step 4. And search (CTRL + F) the following line:

<h2 class='date-header'><span><data:post.dateHeader/></span></h2>

Step 5. In case you find it twice, then you should replace it twice with this code:

<div id='Date'>
<script>changeDate(&#39;<data:post.dateHeader/>&#39;);</script>
</div>
<b:else/>
<div id='Date'>
<script>changeDate(&#39;&#39;);</script>
</div>

Step 6. Now search for this tag (CTRL + F to find it)

</head>

Step 7. And paste the code from below just ABOVE the </head> tag:

<script type='text/javascript'>
//<![CDATA[
var DateCalendar;
function changeDate(d){
if (d == "") {
d = DateCalendar;
}
var da = d.split(' ');
day = "<strong class='date_day'>"+da[0]+"</strong>";
month = "<strong class='date_month'>"+da[1].slice(0,3)+"</strong>";
year = "<strong class='date_year'>"+da[2]+"</strong>";
document.write(month+day+year);
DateCalendar = d;
}
//]]>
</script>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<style type='text/css'>
/* Calendar style date
----------------------------------------------- */
#Date {
background: transparent url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NVj6tUKJgLo/UBShW2dCLSI/AAAAAAAACZk/3TkTa8Hzqt0/s1600/calendar07.png) no-repeat;
display: block;
width:60px;
height:60px;
float: left;
margin: 15px 2px 0 -108px;
padding: 0 0 8px 0px;
border: 0;
text-transform: uppercase;
}
.date_month {
display: block;
font-size: 15px;
font-weight:bold;
margin-top:-1px;
text-align:center;
color:#ffffff; /* Month's color */
}
.date_day {
display: block;
font-size: 28px;
font-weight:bold;
margin-top:-8px;
text-align:center;
color:#282828; /* Day's color */
}
.date_year {
display: block;
font-size: 10px;
margin-top:-8px;
text-align:center;
color:#282828; /* Year's color */
}
</style>
</b:if>


Before saving your Template, we can make some changes:
  • To change the calendar style, replace the url in blue with yours;
  • If the calendar doesn't appear correctly, change -108 with 0;
  • With green are marked the areas where you can change the color of the dates

Step 8. Now Preview your Template and if everything is ok, click on the Save button. Enjoy!

Numbered comments on threaded comments for Blogger/Blogspot

In a past tutorial, I've been talking about how you can add numbered comments to your blogger blog and today we'll learn how we can add numbered comments along with comment bubbles on the threaded comments as well.

What the following CSS trick will do for you:
  1. When the general block of comments is initiating (.comments-content) a counter called countcomments activates and starts with an initial value of 1. 
  2. Then, each time the code flow goes through a review of any level, either a principal or a reply comment (.comment-thread li), content will bring us in front (:before) of the body of the comment, the number that is the counter at the time.
  3. Then is incremented in one unit the counter (counter-increment).
See the screenshot:
count comments, comment bubble, forum, blogger

Isn't that great? Well, i'm pretty sure many of you have been waiting for this cool trick. So let's begin applying it for our threaded comments system.

Steps to add bubble comments count

Step 1: Go to Dashboard - Template - Edit HTML (click on Proceed if needed)

    ...Expand Widget Templates:



    Step 2: Search (CTRL + F) for this piece of code:

    ]]></b:skin>

    Step 3: Add the following code just above it:

    .comment-thread ol {
    counter-reset: countcomments;
    }
    .comment-thread li:before {
    content: counter(countcomments,decimal);
    counter-increment: countcomments;
    float: right;
    z-index: 2;
    position:relative;
    font-size: 22px;
    color: #555555;
    padding-left:10px; 
    padding-top:3px; 
    background: url(
    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-f6ByQfbwApQ/T4x_8p1FGpI/AAAAAAAAB2A/WJKf-ybmvQk/s1600/comment+bubble2.png) no-repeat;
    margin-top:7px; 
    margin-left:10px; 
    width: 50px; /*image-width size*/
    height: 48px; /*image-height size*/ 

    }
    .comment-thread ol ol {
    counter-reset: contrebasse;
    }
    .comment-thread li li:before {
    content: counter(countcomments,decimal) "." counter(contrebasse,lower-latin);
    counter-increment: contrebasse;
    float: right;
    font-size: 18px;
    color: #666666;
    }

    Note:
    • for no bubble icon, remove the code in red (including the blue code)
    • to change the comment bubble, replace the code in blue with the URL address of your own icon. If you're not sure what icon you should use, you can find some cool icons in my previous posts (see these tutorials here and here)
    • to change the position of comments count, increase/decrease the values (3 & 10) from padding-top and padding-left
    • to change the position of comments bubble/icon, change the values (10 & 7) from margin-left and margin-top
    Step 4: Now Save the Template and you're done!

    Customization:
    • Vertical alignment - Change the value of bottom in code line 3. The code positions the button relative to the bottom of your browser window. To fix the distance even when window is resized, specify the value in px (pixels) instead of %.
    • Horizontal alignment - Change the value in red of margin-left. Negative value pushes the button to the left of the main blog column, positive value pushes it to the right. Increase or decrease the value based on your needs.
    • Twitter setting - Replace Helplogger with your Twitter username
    • Replacing and removing buttons - You can replace existing buttons with your own. Each button is represented by this code: <div class='sbutton'> BUTTON CODE HERE </div>
    • RSS Feed - Change the text in blue with the url address of your RSS feed.
    Enjoy :)


    Create A Rollover Image Effect (change image on mouseover)

    The Rollover effect is one in which an image web object changes (swaps itself) on mouse over to another web object (called rollovers) and reverts back to the original image on mouse out. Rollover images are preloaded into the page when it is loading, this ensures that the rollovers are displayed quickly. The onMouseOver and onMouseOut attributes of the link tag are used to make this functional.

    Demo:  Place your mouse over the image below to see its rollover effect


    Making Rollover Effect Image

    You have the following code:

    <a href="URL ADDRESS"><img src="URL OF THE FIRST IMAGE GOES HERE" onmouseover="this.src='URL OF THE SECOND IMAGE GOES HERE'" onmouseout="this.src='URL OF THE FIRST IMAGE GOES HERE'" /></a>

    Change the colored texts as it follows:

    1. URL ADDRESS

    This is the address where somebody will be sent when clicks on the image.
    Example, my blog address: http://www.helplogger.blogspot.com

    2. URL OF THE FIRST IMAGE GOES HERE

    Replace the orange text (two times) with the URL address of the image which will appear before you hover over it.

    3. URL OF THE SECOND IMAGE GOES HERE
    Replace the text in blue with the url of  the image that will appear when the cursor hovers over it.

    Now you can paste your image inside a blog gadget, going to Layout > click on Add a Gadget link (right side) > Select HTML/JavaScript from the pop-up window, then add it to your sidebar.

    You can also add it inside your post by going to New Post > Switch to HTML tab and then paste the code in the empty box.

    That's it. Enjoy ;)

        How To Change Avatar Size In Blogger Comments

        This simple trick will help you to modify the avatars size in Blogger comments. For changing the style and size of avatars, we have to add some CSS codes in our Blogger template. So, let's begin:


        Step 1.

        Go to Dashboard - Template - click on the Edit HTML button - Proceed


        ...now select Expand Widget Template (I recommend to make a backup first)

          Step 2. Find (CTRL + F) this code in your template:

          ]]></b:skin>

          Step 3. Copy and paste one of the following codes just above it:

          [Works in Blogger threaded comment system]

          .comments .avatar-image-container{
          background-color: rgb(34, 34, 34);
          border:1px solid #ccc;
          margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px;
          padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
          width: 64px;
          max-height: 64px;
          }
          .comments .avatar-image-container img{
          margin: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
          padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
          max-width: 64px;
          height: 64px;
          }

          [for old blogger commenting system]

          .avatar-image-container{
          border:1px solid #d6d6d6;
          margin-left: -30px;
          -moz-border-radius: 4px;
          background:#fff;
          height:70px;
          min-height: 70px;
          width:70px;
          min-width:70px;
          }
          .avatar-image-container img {
          background: url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-gcjQ0sgWw7M/T6WpkK4S5AI/AAAAAAAACEQ/hYAWpCPl6P0/s200/anonymous.jpg);
          background-repeat: no-repeat;
          background-position: center;
          background-size: 100%;
          width:70px;

          height:70px;
          min-height:70px;
          }

          Note: If you want bigger/smaller avatars, change the values in red. To change the anonymous avatar, replace the URL address in blue with your own. (works only for previous commenting system)

          Step 4. Save the Template.

          Now view your blog to see the results. Hope you enjoy!


          How to Hide Blogger Sidebar to Display AdSense For Search Results

          When visitors are searching for content on your blog, you have the following options to display the search results: opening the results in the same window, in a new window or within your own site using an iframe.

          But the best option is to display the search results in your own site/blog, mainly because you are not sending people off your blog and when they are taken to a new page of search results, so it could be confusing many times because it doesn't look anything like your site or Google. Therefore, displaying the search results within your site, could look more professional and could also increases your page views and your revenue from the ads on the search page.

          A problem that many bloggers are facing is that the page which displays the AdSense for search results must be at least of 800 px wide, so the posting area must be of minimum 800px and there's nothing like that in most of the blogs.

          So, what we will do in this tutorial is to set up the search results to be displayed in a static page (none of other posts or pages will be affected) where we'll remove the sidebar, so that we'll have enough space to make the post/page section of 800px wide. Also, we will create a static page specially designed for the search results, then create a new AdSense for search in our AdSense account and finally add a small snippet of code top in your Blogger template to hide the sidebar in that specific page.

          Search results span the width of the page with the sidebar hidden:


          Display AdSense For Search Results Within Blogger Page

          Step 1. Create a new static page on your blog, you can give it the title 'Search Results' but leave the content section empty and then Publish the page.

          Step 2. When you publish the page you have the option to add the page to a menu, choose the third option 'No Gadget Link To Pages Manually' click 'Save and Publish'. OR in case this screen will not appear, right click on View Page and select Copy Link Address. We will need this URL of the page when creating the AdSense for search.

          Step 3. Go To Your AdSense account, then go to My ads tab, select the Search option and Create a New custom search engine. Follow the steps until you come to the Search results option.

          Step 4. Select the 3rd method "on my website using an iframe", then Enter the URL of the page you created into the URL field and continue.


          Step 5. Follow the rest of the set up process, at the end you will be given two pieces of code. The first piece of code is for the actual search bar that you can paste into a Html/Javascript gadget in your sidebar or wherever you want it. The second piece of code you must copy and paste into a new HTML/JavaScript gadget and after clicked on Save - drag it above the Blog Posts area


           Now that you have your page set up with the search results code and your search bar code in your sidebar, it is time to add a snippet of code to your template to remove the sidebar.

          Adding The Code In Blogger To Change the Results Page Layout

          Step 1. In Your Blogger Dashboard, go to Template > Edit HTML - then click Proceed 


          Step 2. Select the "Expand widget templates" box



          Step 3. Find (CTRL + F) the following piece of code

          ]]></b:skin>

          Step 4. Just below it, paste this code:

          <b:if cond='data:blog.url == &quot;PAGE-URL-HERE&quot;'>
          <style>
          .main-inner .columns {
          padding-left: 0px !important;
          padding-right: 0px !important;
          }
          .main-inner .fauxcolumn-center-outer {
          left: 0px !important;
          right: 0px !important;
          }
          .main-inner .fauxcolumn-left-outer, .main-inner .fauxcolumn-right-outer, .main-inner .column-left-outer, .main-inner .column-right-outer {
          display: none !important;
          }
          </style>
          </b:if>

          Note: Replace PAGE-URL-HERE with the url address of the page where the search results will be displayed (the one you have added at the step 4)

          Step 5. Now Save Template and you're done!

          This simple trick allows you not only to hide the sidebar in the search results page, you can, as well, hide it in any page you want... just create your page and follow the same steps. It is also good to hide the sidebar in Privacy Policy Pages, Contact Pages and in all the non-content-based pages with little content or no content at all.

          Show Blogger Image only in Homepage and Hide it in Post Page


          To hide images/pictures from our blogger posts and to make them appear only in homepage, we will have to add just a small piece of CSS code in our template and then use the class "hidepic" each time we want to hide an image.

          Just follow the next steps:

          Step 1. Go to Dashboard - Template - Edit HTML ( click on Proceed button )


           Step 2. Select "Expand Widget Template" (make a backup)

             Step 3. Find (CTRL + F) this code in your template:

                }]]></b:skin>

            Step 4. Copy and paste the following code just below it

            <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;index&quot;'>
            <style>
            .hidepic{
            display: none;
            }
            </style>
            </b:if>

            Step 5. Save the Template.

            Now everytime you create a post, firstly add the pic you want to hide and then switch to HTML tab where you'll see the HTML code of the image you have added that will look something like this:

            <div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">
            <a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-shsd_c51zRA/T6UeoPgcbII/AAAAAAAACCc/sYI6WB22CaM/s1600/fire_bird_by_fhrankee-d32af8v.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" height="320" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-shsd_c51zRA/T6UeoPgcbII/AAAAAAAACCc/sYI6WB22CaM/s320/fire_bird_by_fhrankee-d32af8v.png" width="320" /></a></div>

            Note: it should be at the exact location where your image has been added 
            (if the image is at the middle of the text, then the code should be found at the middle)

            Step 6. Replace "separator" with "hidepic" - see the screenshot below:

            <div style='clear: both;'/>
            </b:if>
            </b:includable>

            Step 5. Save the template. Now view your blog and click on some label....there should be no box anymore.

            </script>

            var numposts = 5;var showpostdate = false;var showpostsummary = true;var numchars = 100;var standardstyling = true;
            </script>
            <script src="http://your-blog.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=published&amp;alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=showrecentposts">
            </script></div>
            <div id="rpdr" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 9px;">
            <a href="http://helplogger.blogspot.com/2012/04/recent-posts-widget-for-bloggerblogspot.html" target="_blank" title="Grab this Recent Posts Widget">Recent Posts Widget</a> by <a href="http://helplogger.blogspot.com" title="Recent Posts Widget">Helplogger</a></div>
            <noscript>Your browser does not support JavaScript!</noscript>
            <style type="text/css">
            #hlrpsa a {color: #0B3861; font-size: 13px;} #rpdr {background: url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WM-QlPmHc6Y/T5wJV58qj9I/AAAAAAAACAk/1kULxdNyEyg/s1600/blogger.png) 0px 0px no-repeat; padding: 1px 0px 0px 19px; height:14px; margin: 5px 0px 0px 0px;line-height:14px;}
            #rpdr, #rpdr a {color:#808080;}
            #hlrpsa { color: #999999; font-size: 11px; border-bottom:1px #cccccc dotted; margin-top:-10px; padding-bottom:10px;}
            .hlrps a {font-weight:bold; }
            .hlrpssumm {}
            </style>

            Option 2: Recent Posts Widget Showing Post Titles Only

            <div id="hlrpsb">
            <script style="text/javascript" src="http://helplogger.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/recent-posts-with-titles-only.js"></script>
            <script style="text/javascript">var numposts = 10;var showpostdate = false;var showpostsummary = false;var numchars = 100;var standardstyling = true;</script>
            <script src="http://your-blog.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=published&alt=json-in-script&callback=showrecentposts"></script></div>
            <div style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 9px;" id="rpdr"><a href="http://helplogger.blogspot.com/2012/04/recent-posts-widget-for-bloggerblogspot.html" title="Grab this Recent Posts Widget" target="_blank">Recent Posts Widget</a> by <a href="http://helplogger.blogspot.com" title="Recent Posts Widget">Helplogger</a></div><noscript>Oops! Make sure JavaScript is enabled in your browser.</noscript>
            <style type=text/css>
            #hlrpsb a {color: #0B3861; font-size: 13px;} #rpdr {background: url( http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-WM-QlPmHc6Y/T5wJV58qj9I/AAAAAAAACAk/1kULxdNyEyg/s1600/blogger.png ) 0px 0px no-repeat; padding: 1px 0px 0px 19px; height:14px; margin: 5px 0px 0px 0px;line-height:14px;}
            #rpdr, #rpdr a {color:#808080;}
            .bbrecpost2 {
            padding-top:6px;
            padding-bottom:6px;
            border-bottom: 1px #cccccc dotted; }
            </style>

            Step 4.
            • Change 5 (option 1) and 10 (option 2) with the number of posts you want to display. 
            • Change false to true if you want the posts dates to appear 
            • Change 100 (option 1) if you want more characters to be displayed.
            • To change the color and font size of the links, modify the values in blue (links) and violet (font-size)
            • To change the style of posts summary, modify the values in green (color) and orange (font size)
            • Replace the your-blog text with the name of your blog or if you have a custom domain change all the bolded line with your address like in this example:
            http://www.your-site.com/feeds/posts/default....

            Step 5. Save your widget. And that's it! Enjoy!
