Always Display The Sidebar On Blogger Dynamic Views Templates


Since 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.
