Add An Animated Bump Effect To Labels List On Blogger


jquery blogger effect

In this post we have a fun effect you can add to the links in your blog labels list.This trick has been around for a while and i have been using it on some other blogs.The effect is created using jQuery and basically when a visitor places their cursor over a link it moves across horizontally.So in the same manner you might have links change color, underline or change background on hover this will make them move.

Live Demo - You can see a demo in the category section in the sidebar of Design And Blog : Best Blogger Templates.

  10. This is cool. this can be a good substitute to the Tag Cloud (Blogumus) by Amanda

  11. Paul,

    I added it and it worked beautifully but it totally screwed around with my featured post slider, but when I took the code back out it went back to normal, can you help me fix this?

    I really like this effect and would like to use it.

    - Tee

  12. @Tamara Spicer : This is because Featured Post Slider is based on jquery and even this animated effect is based on jquery and you can add only one jquery application/script in a webpage.

    Even I have a Featured Post Slider and it was screwed when I added jquery Social Bookmarking Icons from I almost banged my head when my post slider wasn't working and then I searched and found out about this.

  13. @ Saif - That is not true you can add more that one jQuery effect in your blog, it is recommended you only add the jQuery script once but you can call on the jQuery as many times as you like.On the template site the demo leads to the Popular Posts and Labels both have jQuery effects.

  14. @Admin - So then once I place jQuery script on my blog then all I have to do is add the html code of the particular effect I want? Or how does that work? e.g If I add the jQuery script for one of your post slider effects then when I place the social Bookmarking Icons from here, do I skip the jQuery and just add the html code?

  15. @ Tamara - This is not something we need to get into, i was just making the point.I was referring to the main jQuery script however there may be other scripts that need to be added.It would be great if we just added a script and everything worked as we liked :D Every tutorial on this blog is tested...tested again ...tested again, just follow the steps exactly and everything will work.

  16. excellent...simply superb effect. you are a magician for blogger audience
