Always Display The Sidebar On Blogger Dynamic Views Templates


Blogger Dynamic Views LogoSince Blogger launched the Dynamic Views templates I have been asked a lot of questions about making changes to the design on them.The truth is there is only so much you can do to Dynamic Views (DV) templates, personally I'm not a fan but I can see the advantages for say personal bloggers who want a stylish easy to keep blog.One question I was asked recently was "Is there a way to have the Dynamic Views sidebar always showing ?".

I looked into this as on blogs I read using the DV templates as you scroll the browser scroll bar and the blog sidebar can get in each others way.Anyway I have a way for you to make the sidebar always be fixed in the out position.To do this we use the same Css as we used in previous posts to; for example having Bookmarking buttons in a fixed position on pages.

The tutorial is below but first you can see a demo of a DV template, notice the sidebar stays open :

Set Sidebar On Dynamic Views Templates To Always Show

Step 1. - In Your (New Design) Blogger Dashboard Click The Drop Down Menu For Your Blog > Choose Customize > Advanced > Add Css, as shown in the video below.

Step 2. Copy and Paste the following code into the Css Section then click Apply To Blog.

#gadget-dock {position: fixed !important;right: 0px !important;}

That's it, check out your blog and the Sidebar will always be displayed.

  3. Hello

    It's very nice of you to share this with us all.

    Thank you so much. It worked for me.
    Now I just need to find a way to add banners to this template cause I am receiving requests but don't know what to do. My public loves this template cause it is clean and friendly to the eyes. Any ideas on how to add banners?


    1. Ana, you dont have the option to add html to dynamic views template (there is a hack I'm looking at but not ready yet).

      The only thing you could do is add the banners directly to your posts, for example you could add a banner at the top of a post and another at the bottom.

  4. i thought you mean left sidebar which includes posts' names.

    how to fix it?!

    recently it moves! (in chrome beowser)
