Adding Post Titles To Older Post Newer Post Links On Blogger

Adding Post Titles To Older Post Newer Post Links On Blogger
One Wordpress feature i really like that is not available on Blogger is last post, next post links at the foot of the page with the actual titles of the posts they link to.On Blogger we have got Newer Post, Older Post links but the title of the post is not shown.I feel these links would get a super increase in clicks if the titles were connected.With simply "Newer" and "Older" people don't know what they are clicking the titles will catch the eye and thus entice more clicks.The knock on effect of this will see more page views that will lead to more return visitors, subscribers and followers.

I said this feature was not available on Blogger, that is until now.A few people have created hacks to add the titles to the older, newer links including myself but every time it had errors.However one hack i have seen does the job perfectly.

Step 4. Find the following piece of code in your blogs Html : (Click Ctrl and F for a search bar to help find the code - How To Find Code In Blogger Template Template)

</head>

Step 5. Copy and paste the following code directly above </head>

If you have previously added jQuery script to your template remove the line in green.
<!--Start Slider Scripts-->
<script src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.6.1.min.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<script src='http://yourjavascript.com/8855314511/jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<script type='text/javascript'>
$(window).load(function() {
$(&#39;#slider&#39;).nivoSlider();
});
</script>
<!--End Slider Scripts info @ http://www.spiceupyourblog.com-->

That's the Css and scrips added for the slider to work next we add the slides.

We will be adding the slider across your blog below the header.This area is called Cross Column and can be seen in the image below.If your blog does not have this section available you can see how to enable it here - Add Full Width Cross Column Gadgets To Blogger.


Adding HTML For The Slides


The HTML for the slides goes in a Html/Javascript gadget in the cross column section as shown above.

Below is the html for the slider in the demo.There is no really easy way to explain it so you will need to take a minute to figure out the code.I have the URLs (The Destination of the slide when clicked) is in red, the image is in green and the caption (Optional) is in yellow.Each slide works in the same way, you can just copy and paste this code and replace the URL, Image and captions.To add extra slides you can repeat one of the sections and once again add your URL, Image and Caption.

<div class="slider-wrapper theme-pascal">
<div class="ribbon"></div>

<div id="slider" class="nivoSlider">

jQuery Fade In Scroll To Top Button With Smooth Scroll For Blogger


| 67 comments

jQuery smooth scroll to topIn October last year i wrote a post with a Floating back to top button.Since then i have wanted to cover a more up to date back to top modern button.The popular option when it comes to scroll top buttons is to use jQuery for two reasons.Firstly with jQuery you can have the button hidden until the page is scrolled, secondly when clicked the page scrolls smoothly to the top instead of the direct jump a regular link would have.So that's exactly what i have in this tutorial.We will add a button that will only be visible when the reader starts scrolling and then when they click it the page slowly scrolls up easing into position at the top.For the button itself we us a sprite to create a hover effect sprites also keep the page load time down.

I recently started a blog in which i want to list the Best Design and Blogging posts, codes, tutorials and resources.On that blog i have the back to top button we cover in this post so we will use that as the demo.When you land on the page start to scroll and you will see the button in the bottom right corner.

Design and Blog

Looks and Works great lets add it to your blog.Credits to Matt Verone, Wordpress users can use the plugin here.

I'm sure you will have noticed the new Google design as covered in the post Evolving the Google design and experience on the official Google blog.While the changes have been subtle some stand out like the new sleek search bar on results pages.The new search bar has a more modern minimalist look with rounded corners and hover effect.But one new feature i quiet like is as you type your text into the search field an X appears than can be clicked to remove your text.Yes it's nothing major but still a neat feature none the less.So in this post i will show you how you can re-create the new Google search bar and use it on your blog.

Once on your blog it will look the very same, using jQuery for the X delete button and your blogs default search to generate results.This was covered on the Awesome Queness.Com design blog and with just a few changes i have it ready to go For Blogger.

A Simple jQuery Powered Drop Down Menu For Blogger


| 46 comments

I have had a lot of requests for a tutorial on creating a simple easy to use drop down menu for Blogger.There are literally thousands of drop down menus around with different styles and functions.However i want to have something that is easy to implement,add links to and Customizable.The menu i choose has all these features, a clean design with a jQuery powered drop down effect.

In the end i decided to go with a menu first published on Blogger Stop over two years ago.I simply made some small changes so it will work on the newer Template designer templates.I also added a z-index so the drop down will display over content and some Rounded corners that will be visible on browsers that support them such as Firefox, Chrome and Safari, you can see a live demo below :

function jsddm_timer()
{ closetimer = window.setTimeout(jsddm_close, timeout);}

function jsddm_canceltimer()
{ if(closetimer)
{ window.clearTimeout(closetimer);
closetimer = null;}}

$(document).ready(function()
{ $(&#39;#jsddm &gt; li&#39;).bind(&#39;mouseover&#39;, jsddm_open);
$(&#39;#jsddm &gt; li&#39;).bind(&#39;mouseout&#39;, jsddm_timer);});

document.onclick = jsddm_close;
</script>
<!--end menu code-->

Note - In yellow i have highlighted the colors used, you can change these by using a different color code.You can find the code for the colors you want with our html color code generator.

Note 2. - If the rounded corners are not to your liking remove the two sections highlighted in red and there gone !

Step 4. Save Your Template.

That's the Css and jQuery added next step is to add the html for your menu.

Now go to your blogs Design Page, we will be adding the menu across your blog below the header.This area is called Cross Column and can be seen in the image below.If your blog does not have this section available you can see how to enable it here - Add Full Width Cross Column Gadgets To Blogger.


Add The Menu Html


In your blogs Design Page click Add A Gadget > Choose Html/Javascript > Copy and paste the following code into the Html/Javascript gadget :

<ul id="jsddm">
<li><a href="/">Home</a>
<li><a href="#">Link One</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="#">Link One Sub</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link One Sub</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link One Sub</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="#">Link Two</a>
<ul>
<li><a href="#">Link Two Sub</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link Two Sub</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link Two Sub</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link Two Sub</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link Two Sub</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="#">Link Three</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link Four</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Link Five</a></li>
</li></ul>

This is the code that makes up the menu in the demo.Replace the hash tags (#) with your links and the text with ehhh your text :D.If you want to add more links you can do so in the same way, take a few minutes to look at the layout of the code and you will see how it works.

Template Designer Tabs Fix


If you use a template from the Blogger Template Designer there is a section of Css that will effect this or any menu you place in the cross column section.This is called tabs and you will need to remove or over ride the tabs css.I have made a short video to show you how to remove it.You can see the video here - Remove Tabs Css.

A Cool Any Size jQuery Powered Featured Posts Slider For Blogger


| 33 comments

Over the last few weeks i have published some cool jQuery Gadgets and Widgets for your Blogs.In this post i have taken the jQuery Easy Slider, a stylish slide show with some neat options and turned it into a kinda mini slider with the option to go large.We previously published the Blogger jQuery Anything Slider that had the option to add videos or images as slides and a Simple But Stylish Blogger Featured Posts Slider.So i wanted to continue with a slide show that could be easily re sized from spanning the width of your blog to the miniature example i have here.

This jQuery Featured Posts Slider also has features like auto scroll, continues scroll plus next slide and previous slide buttons for manual scroll.The original Easy Slider script and code was created by the very cool Css Globe, below is a live demo of our version.

Scripts Updated : 16 April 2014.

As you can see i have gone small in the demo but it could be even smaller and of course much much bigger.

/*Slider Css Info @ http://www.spiceupyourblog.com*/


Change the size of the slider - The width and height are highlighted in yellow so you change these to your required dimensions.You will also have to change the position of the next and previous buttons which is a little more tricky.

Highlighted in red you can see i have the buttons 15px from the top, if you made the slider bigger you would increase the margin from the top.So for example if you made the slider 222px high you would make this 30px.You can try a few margins until you get it right.

Step 4. Find the following piece of code in your blogs Html : (Click Ctrl and F for a search bar to help find the code - How To Find Code In A Blogger Template)

</head>

Step 5. Now Copy And Paste This Code Directly Above / Before </head>

Note - If you have previously added jQuery to your template you can leave out the section in green.

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$(&quot;#slider&quot;).easySlider({
auto: true,
continuous: true
});
});
</script>

</ul>
</div>
Note - The links are in yellow and the image URLs in red, change these to your links and images.

Note 1 - If you do change the size of the slider you need to change the width and height in each slide above to the same dimensions.

Add More Slides - To add more slides you simply add another link and image like this after the <ul> tag above :
