<!-- End Blogger Archive Calendar by www.MyBloggerTricks.com  -->

Optional: The yellow highlighted region is where you can change the text "View Archive", loading image, ASCII characters for navigation arrows and change the abbreviation for Day names.

   9. Save your template and you are almost done!

Add Styles

The widget will look dull and grey unless you style them by adding colours. Do this:

  1. Search inside the template for ]]></b:skin>   and just above it paste the following css codes respectively:

 

If you are using a lighter theme with white background then use this code:

Light Archive Calendar

/* Start of Post Navigator by MBT (LIGHT Theme) ------ */
#calendarDisplay {display:none;}
/* div that holds calendar */
#blogger_calendar { margin:0px auto 0px 0px;width:100%;}
/* Table Caption - Holds the Archive Select Menu */
#bcaption {border:1px solid #C7C7C7;padding:2px;margin:10px 0 0;background:#fff;font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif}
/* The Archive Select Menu */
#bcaption select {background:#ffff;border:0 solid #C7C7C7;color:#0080ff;font-weight:bold;text-align:center;}
/* The Heading Section */
table#bcalendar thead {}
/* Head Entries */
table#bcalendar thead tr th {width:20px;text-align:center;padding:3px; border:1px solid #C7C7C7; font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif;background:#fff;color:#0080ff;}
/* The calendar Table */
table#bcalendar {border:1px solid #C7C7C7;border-top:0; margin:0px 0 0px;width:100%;background:#fff}
/* The Cells in the Calendar */
table#bcalendar tbody tr td {cursor:pointer; text-align:center; border-radius:4px; padding:3px;border:1px solid #C7C7C7; color:#666;font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif;}
/* Links in Calendar */
table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:link, table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:visited, table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:active {font-weight:bold;color:#ffffff; text-decoration:none;}
table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:hover {color:#ffffff; text-decoration:none;}
/* First Row Empty Cells */
td.firstCell {visibility:visible;}
/* Cells that have a day in them */
td.filledCell {  background:#fff;}
td.filledCell:hover {  background:#dddddd;}
/* Cells that are empty, after the first row */
td.emptyCell {visibility:hidden;}
/* Cells with a Link Entry in them */
td.highlightCell {background:#53A9FF;border:1px solid #C7C7C7}
td.highlightCell:hover {background:#72B9FF;border:1px solid #C7C7C7}
/* Table Footer Navigation */
table#bcNavigation  {width:100%;background:#fff;border:1px solid #C7C7C7;border-top:0;color:#0080ff;font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif;}

table#bcNavigation a:hover{text-decoration:underline;}
td#bcFootPrev {width:10px;}
td#bcFootAll{text-align:center;}
td#bcFootNext {width:10px;}
ul#calendarUl {margin:5px auto 0!important;}
ul#calendarUl li a:link {}

/* End of Post Navigator by MBT (LIGHT Theme) ------ */

If you are using a Dark template with black background or similar then use this code instead:

Dark Archive Calendar

/* Start of Post Navigator by MBT (DARK Theme) ------ */

#calendarDisplay {display:none;}
/* div that holds calendar */
#blogger_calendar { margin:5px 0 5px 10px;width:98%;}
/* Table Caption - Holds the Archive Select Menu */
#bcaption {border:1px solid #666666;padding:2px;margin:10px 0 0;background:#333333;font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif}
/* The Archive Select Menu */
#bcaption select {background:#333333;border:0 solid #333333;color:#dddddd;font-weight:bold;text-align:center;}
/* The Heading Section */
table#bcalendar thead {}
/* Head Entries */
table#bcalendar thead tr th {width:20px;text-align:center;padding:2px; border:1px outset #666666; font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif;background:#333333;color:#dddddd}
/* The calendar Table */
table#bcalendar {border:1px solid #666666;border-top:0; margin:0px 0 0px;width:95%;background:#333333}
/* The Cells in the Calendar */
table#bcalendar tbody tr td {text-align:center;padding:2px;border:1px outset #666666; color:#F5F202;font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif;}
/* Links in Calendar */
table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:link, table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:visited, table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:active {font-weight:bold;color:#ffffff; text-decoration:underline;}
table#bcalendar tbody tr td a:hover {color:#ffffff; text-decoration:none;}
/* First Row Empty Cells */
td.firstCell {visibility:visible;}
/* Cells that have a day in them */
td.filledCell {}
/* Cells that are empty, after the first row */
td.emptyCell {visibility:hidden;}
/* Cells with a Link Entry in them */
td.highlightCell {background:#000000;border:1px solid #666666}
/* Table Footer Navigation */
table#bcNavigation  {width:95%;background:#333333;border:1px solid #666666;border-top:0;color:#F5F202;font:bold 100% Tahoma, Arial, Sans-serif;}
table#bcNavigation a:link {text-decoration:none;color:#F5F202}
table#bcNavigation a:hover{text-decoration:underline;}
td#bcFootPrev {width:10px;}
td#bcFootAll{text-align:center;}
td#bcFootNext {width:10px;}
ul#calendarUl {margin:5px auto 0!important;}
ul#calendarUl li a:link {}

/* End of Post Navigator by MBT (DARK Theme) ------ */

  23. Salam brother:

    Again it was superb in fact it worth more than million dollar.... The best thing is that you have simplify the process so beautifully even a new blogger can easily understand.

    Brother if you can improve the copying code process it would be more easy to copy. I mean 1 click for selection of code and than copy..You must aware of it mostly we watch click here to highlight the code and copy it.

    Thank you so much for this gift

    Install it now. it helps! =p


    @haider
    Yes always ahead Mr. haider. Lets see if you can beat faizan and Ahmed safwan in commenting first :p

    @Mrie
    A pleasure buddy. I am glad it suits your new design. :)

    @Faizan

    The jquery is installed on blogger template itself with an external link and so far the widget is really fast at loading. 84 and 89 are still small differences and are acceptable dear. Of course with a change the rankings would differ a little. But did you experience any slow loading of MBT after we installed it?

    @shakeel
    I would love to meet you too. Please stay tuned for our announcement of the second event this week. Venue and details will be shared on our fan pages. :)

    @sunil
    Happy to see you too dear brother. Most welcomed. :)

    @debbie
    Thank you debbie. Glad to see you active at MBT again. Feels great :)

    @bhavesh
    the above is not too deep a java-script. The server load time is acceptable. So far the widget functions well enough. Try it once champ. :)

    Thank you stock :)


    @Premjith
    Buddy we have several tutorials on this topic. Search any of our Drop down menus, you will find the guide to add links to tabs.

    You juts need to add your link inside the href parameter and add the text before the closing a tag like this:

    <a href="Add-URL-here">TAB TITLE HERE</a>


    Hope this helps :)

    @rahul @abu

    @hammad
    Glad to see you too hammad. Always Welcomed pal :)


    @rehman @akhil @Mi Muba
    A pleasure buddies. Glad you liked it :>

    @md.

    I guess you have missed copying the last line in the code of step#7. Please add it again and let me know. :)

  25. @actuary

    Showing names of non-published posts? Not possible because the widget can show no drafts but published blog posts. Please share your blog link buddy. :)


    @jin @jons

    Thank you pals for finding it useful :)

    @Muhammad
    W.salam buddy,

    I am glad you found it so useful. Means a lot.
    We avoid Syntax highlighter for SEO in the past and I guess we should start using it now.

    Another shortcut is to click the first line of code, then keep pressing Shift key and scroll down and then left click at the end of the code (releasing the shift key) to copy it all.

    :)

  26. @Mohammad Bro,

    To Be Honest, I am not on a High Speed internet its 512 KBPS and its not a Super Fast Connection. So MBT Usually Takes a While to Load for me at least. I Think you should do a POll asking from readers for the site speed. Peace.

  32. this is a nice widget and i like.. but WARNING !.. i have an bad experience. i just share.
    after i use this widget on my blog. this is generate many duplicate description that made my blog SERP down. my visitors down about 70% one day after i use this widget. i am searching to many blogs for search how to fix and what the reason. all answer it same that archive is make duplicate description. maybe it is reason search engine down my SERP. it is because the archive indexed and it have no special description for it pages so the each of page archive use homepage description. i see it on webmaster tools that display many duplicate description, missing title, and duplicate title caused by archive. i am not mean to blame this post or writer. but i just share my experience.
    the ways to fix this problem is by add meta code :"<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;archive&quot;'>
    <meta content='noindex,noarchive' name='robots'/>
    </b:if> .. (it is said a professional blogger and it work).. so i just tell you to be careful if want to use this widget.. Thanks. my blog that the SERP down : www.blogberbagi.com. please response this comment !

  39. Assalammualaikum brother!..

    Thanks for your great widget. I have tried this widget on my blog (http://waazin.blogspot.com). Unfortunately, my scheduled post also "archived" or highlighted in the calender.

    As a result, when we click for tomorrow or day after tomorrow or any advance schedule post dates, the result is "No posts match your query. Show all posts". The post is not appear because it's not yet scheduled to published.

    Please help. Thank you.

  46. hey guys,
    fixing the "display the year" issue is super simple: on step 3, where you select "monthly" as frequency, also make sure that on "date format" you select the month next to the year, and there you go! You can see it working at http://maxkrovenreviews.blogspot.com/

  48. I found one main problem with this widget. and I think the solution lies in its javascript code. Kindly help to clear it out.
    The calendar dates wont highlighted when you post your articles by selecting any past date or time. and when the calendar dates doesnt highlight, then we cannot get the link attached to that day.

  50. For everyone having issues with the b:section error that pops up. Look at the code to replace in step 6. If your coding in your template doesn't have a / backslash at the end of it, you have to highlight the code all the way down to the first "</b:widget>" you see. Then replace all of that highlighted coding with the coding in Step 7 and it should work.

  57. When I point the month in the dropdown arrow the hover color becomes grey and the fonts remains black. But once I select the month, the font color becomes white and the hover color changes to #0080ff. Where should I change this #0080ff so that I can choose what will blend with my blog color.

    Thanks for the help.

  58. Hello, thanks for sharing this amazing widget. I'm having some troubles though. In my blog (which is just a test blog I use for testing templates), the dropdown menu shows, together with the month, the word "undefined" instead of year and number of posts. I've tried changing the blogger date format but none of the available formats changed anything. Any idea why this happens? Thanks in advance, Giulia
    This is the blog.

  59. I am having two problems. I must be missing something but I can't change see or change the color of the calendar.

    Also, somehow I see a list of all the blogposts below the calendar. They are listed by the month (ie all of Feb). Is there anyway to hide the list and just show the calendar.

    This an awesome widget, very stylish and light. I have a small problem though, since I have a general open Target Blank condition in my blog the widget opens in a new window always. I want the posts to open in the native tab/window itself. Kindly let me know where I can include the target='_self' in the widget. I am zero in coding.

    Thanking you.
