Video tutorials on their way.

Video tutorial.
Yesterday a friend of mine was watching me blog. He is particularly new to blogger. He had tried the 'Remove the blogger navbar' hack and was not able to do it. I was surprised. It's such an easy hack, just copy paste the code and you are done. I asked him where he faced the problem. The reply: "Don't know. I didn't even understand what a template is." So I decided to add a video tutorial section. For the next coming days I will be busy making video tutorials for the older posts. This also means less number of posts per week and more work for me. Well I will try my best to keep up my work.

How to open all links in a new window?

All links in new window.
Watch the video tutorial.
If you want to open all your links in a new window here is how to do it. But I don't recommend this hack. All your links - older post, newer post, home and all in-post links will open in a new window. This can be really annoying at times. As a thumb rule you should open external links in a new window and internal links in the same window. Anyways if anyone of you find this thing useful do tell me.

write html/javascript code in blogger blog postAfter you have placed your code in the post, highlight it so that users can easily spot it. Often while reading others post I have face this peculiar problem. The authors do not highlight their code. This is specially problematic when they are referring to a single line of code. You can apply a lot of styles make it bold, increase or decrease font, change the font altogether... Pretty old stuff...isn't it. This is how we like it.

Consider this (Style 1)

//your code here

Or this (Style 2)

//your code here

Or even this... (Style 3)

Title here

//your code here

Neat code presented elegantly. Read on to know how to apply these styles.

Control opacity of blogger-navbar

Control opacity of navbar animated.Recently Blogger released new transparent navbar styles. It is a nice move on blogger's part to encourage its users put back the navbar again. Users used to hide the blogger navbar as it did not match their template. The transparent navbars mix with the template colors and hence give a better look.
There is one thing though that I still think is missing. The level of transparency can not be controlled. Here is a work around to achieve this.
