Some more on blogging

I have found some more customizing methods on blogs based on blogger. Here are some of them and I think it's better if you have a backup of the template before try on these.
  1. Add new column - This is a simple task and what you need is only a little knowledge in CSS and HTML.Here are the steps to add new column on your blog and I have done it based on template "Minima". Don't worry you just have to do a slight change to apply these on other templates.

    1. You have to write a new CSS class for the new column that's going to insert.

      For eg:
      #left-sidebar-wrapper {
      float: left ;width: 220px;

      Other than this example you can write more for the CSS class.

    2. Before the <div id="main-wrapper"> tag you have to define the div tag of new column. So paste the code given below immediately before the main-wrapper div tag.

      <div id='left-sidebar-wrapper'>
      <b:section class='sidebar' id='left-sidebar' preferred='yes'/>

      Now you have added the new column. But have to do some more to view it on the blog.

    3. Still the outer-wrapper (the whole big div in the blog) has no room to accommodate new column so you have to find the CSS class of it as #outer-wrapper and increase the width by the amount that you wish to give for the new column.

    4. And also increase the width of the #header-wrapper by the same amount.

    5. According to this example you have to increase all by 220px.

    6. Now add some elements to new column and take a look at the blog you will find that it sticks with the middle column so you just have to give a left margin to CSS class #main-wrapper like margin-left: 20px;

  2. Remove the navigation bar - As you all can see on the blogs we make under blogger we can see a navigation bar on the top.Whats if you don't like it !!! Here is the solution.

    #navbar-iframe {
    display: none !important;

    Paste this part of code just before the /* Variable definitions on your blog HTML.
If you have come up with any difficulties on applying these please add a comment regarding it and hope you'll hear the solution from me immediately.


  1. Do u know file format called "DjVu". DjVu (pronounced déjà vu) is a computer file format designed primarily to store scanned images, especially those containing text and line drawings.This allows for high quality, readable images to be stored in a minimum of space, so that they can be made available on the web.DjVu has been promoted as an alternative to PDF

How to get indexed by Google & Yahoo

I have seen a lot of ads and services online that provide the facility to get higher page ranks on search engines. But when I asked about those services on Google their respond was not much positive because they said it can decrease you page rank (because those services cannot be trusted always). It is happening because the page rank is depending on page visitors (as Google say). So the better way is to let the Google to index your site by sending them the address of your website. : here you can improve the traffic with the webmaster tools and you can send your website contents also.
