blogspot template operatorsAre we are going to discuss electronics or logic gates here? Of course not! :) Blogger Team has recently made some performance based changes to their XHTML Widget tags for layouts. They have introduced some logic operators to simplify long conditional expression using short and simple syntax thanks to Blogger Logical Operators. I have been testing Blogger templates since 7 years and the best thing I loved about it is the simplicity to retrieve data from the server. Although users are restricted from accessing the server side and database records but they have been given a great deal of access to call objects on Front end using Layout tags.  Lets get straight to the fun ride!

device breakpoints for blogspot blogs

With so many Mobile Products in market where each smartphone or tablet has a different Screen size, it is important that we select some Content Specific Breakpoints so that your blogspot page may adjust and fit perfectly to the different screen sizes and may not looked squeezed or poor in resolution. Google recently rolled out a Mobile Friendly update on April 21, 2015, which boosts the ranking of mobile-friendly sites on mobile search results.  Google no longer favors fixed width layouts and recommends that all sites must be made fluid and responsive, where text should be readable without tapping or zooming, tap targets are spaced appropriately and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling.

twitter follow button causing horizontal scrollingRecently more and more people are experiencing problems with poor social media plugin UI. Twitter Follow button despite being mobile responsive messes up the site design by adding a long Horizontal Scrollbar to the bottom of the page temporarily for a few seconds and then it disappears. The Follow button is forcing the entire webpage to scroll horizontally. You might have seen a long green scrollbar at the bottom of our blog too. Upon debugging the site I found that the scrollbar was actually caused by the Twitter hub.html frame that renders within our site.

Horizontal Divider ShortcodeYou are quite aware with HTML hr tag that defines a thematic break in a HTML page that can be a shift of topic or a section division.  The hr element is used to separate content in an HTML page. While writing blog posts, it makes a lot of sense to format your content well and present long lengthy content in sections rather in a single plain text, in such case CSS3 Dividers help a lot and to make it even more effective, we have included a smooth scrolling back-to-top link in the horizontal divider that takes a user back to the top of the page content. The BacktoTop button will display only when the content is long enough else it will auto hide itself. It will appear when a user scrolls down but would disappear as a user scrolls up. We have created around 5 Color Skins in two different themes, one with Solid color and one with Fading effect. The Hr Tag is created using Blogger Shortcode Plugin, the complete Toolkit For blogspot blogs.
