Customize Author Profile In Blogger


Customize-Author-Profile-In Blogger Thanks to Blogger you can easily customize your templates and widgets fully. While designing the Cute Box template I came across the coding for “Author Profile Widget”. The widget was using official Blogger Styles by default and I thought why not try editing them with our own customized fonts and colors. Fortunately with a simple use of CSS, the entire look was changed to something that may be of interest to most of you. I added some mouse hover effects to Author Profile image and author name and also added a small image of admin that appears when you hover your mouse cursor on it.

Have a look at it first (Remember to hover you mouse on it),

Customization Guide

Each bolded text in the code above is described below,

(1)  Customize Image Border

border:3px solid #289728;

This code defines the image border width, style and colour in active mode. To change the width change this value –>3px and to change style change solid to dotted, dashed or outset etc. and to change colour of border change  #289728 to a different colour of your choice. Use our Colour Chart

(2)  Customize Image Border Which Appears On Mouse Hover

border:3px dotted #3B3A3B;

This code can be customized in a similar way as for part (1)

(3)  Customize The Author Name

color:#289728;

text-transform:lowercase;

color:#3B3A3B;

To change the colour of Author Name in active mode, change  #289728

To change the colour of Author Name on mouse hover, change  #3B3A3B

To Change all letters to capital then change lowercase to uppercase or if you want to make the first letter of each word capital then change lowercase to capitalize

(4) Customize The Author Introduction Text

color:#333

border-top:2px solid #289728;
  border-bottom:2px solid #289728;

To change the colour of the introduction text change #333 

To change the the width, style and colour of the two borders that appear below and above the text then change 2px, solid and #289728 respectively

How to show or hide the link in Author Profile

By default I have removed the link that says “View My Complete Profile”  If you want to show this link then simply delete the following code from the above code,

.profile-link {
display:none;
}

If you want to hide the link then leave the above code as it is.

That’s All!

I hope you will find it easy and interesting. Any question is welcomed :>

    Nice tutorial..

    I wanna ask, can you help me on how to make blogger profile back to normal? I mean the blogger profile unsatisfied me.

    Firstly, please visit my blog, http://aiharas.blogspot.com/, then LOOK at my blogger profile on TOP of the SIDEBAR..
    You'll see that the description on the blogger profile is below the profile photo which was originally and usually beside the profile photo like yours and other bloggers.

    Once, I edited the HTML code to be like that and now, I forget on how to make it back to normal.
    If you dont mind, please reply me in my email, suriaszira_flowers@yahoo.com. but if you think it's hard to do so, just reply in your comment threads.

    I'll be appreciate your help. Thanks. :)
