How To Add ScrollBar To The Sidebar

7 comments Buzz Here
I find this very useful to those Bloggers who would prefer to put their list of link in the sidebar. For bloggers even though blogspot have no potential of adding another page with the help of talented bloggers we can now do it, please read my post How not to show Post Date When You Make Your ABout Me Page -- this is if you want to ad your link in your navigation page but for those who want the list to be seen in their sidebar then here's my tut's for you.

Entrecard is very Popular of connecting each blogger and now each blogger created a great list of friends, drop list and so on...

Here is how to add a scroll bar to save some space of your sidebar.

  • Go to your Dashboard, Layout, Edit HTML.

Reminder before we start: Always download your template for safety reason.

  • Type Ctrl+F type sidebar content
  • Copy this code below right after the /* Sidebar Content */
/* Sidebar Content */

then save.

That LinkList1 (Color Blue) Replace them with the title you name of your list example: when you add the widget you title them as "Drop List" then that's the word you replace -- but to make it safe and to save more time of errors here's what to do.
  • Edit HTML - tick the Expand Widget Templates
  • Ctrl+F type <div id='sidebar-wrapper'>
<div id='sidebar-wrapper'>
<b:section class='sidebar' id='sidebar' preferred='yes'>
<b:widget id='Subscribe1' locked='false' title='Subscribe To' type='Subscribe'/>
<b:widget id='LinkList1' locked='false' title='' type='LinkList'/>
In my sidebar-wrapper it shows that the id in that sidebar are Subscribe1 and LinkList1 -- Linklist is what i named my list so i copy the "LinkList1" (Blue) then paste it to my sidebar content, you can change the height according to your liking.

This scrollbar toturial is only apply if you want to put scrollbar to only one widget, if you want more than one widget or the whole sidebar of even within your post then we added another code but that's for now i hope this helps and find it useful.


Subscribe to: Posts (Atom) Hide it or Replace them to RSS, Here's How

1 Comment Buzz Here
Some blogger want to remove the Subscribe to: Posts (Atom) but for some they just replace the Atom to RSS. I will share to you how to remove it, if that's what you want and also will show you how to replace to RSS instead.

Here at TBN i decided to replace Subscribe to: Posts (Atom) to Subscribe to: Posts (RSS) -- scroll down and you will see the demo.

Here is the easy way to actually hide it

Go to your Dashboard - Layout - Edit HTML
Hit Ctrl+F type .feed-links { (You will then directly see the CSS Code)
Add this Code

This is what the whole Feed-link CSS code should look like

.feed-links {
clear: both;
line-height: 2.5em;

Then save your template and it should be hiding now.

Replace the Atom to RSS

Save your template to make sure that when you make mistake you can still go back to your old settings.

Go to your Dashboard - Layout - Edit HTML
Click Expand Widget Template
Ctrl+F find this code
<a class='feed-link' expr:href='data:f.url' expr:type='data:f.mimeType' target='_blank'><> (<data:f.feedType/>)</a>

When you get to this code replace them Atom code to RSS code below, preview first and if happy then save it.
<a class='feed-link' expr:href='data:f.url + "?alt=rss"' type='application/rss+xml' target='_blank'><> (RSS)</a>

You should have RSS now instead of Atom or have hid them, if that's what you have choosed.


Replace Atom to RSS is based to PurpleMoggy's Blog.

When i started blogging i don't have any idea about html, javascript etc.. all those terms freak me out, im not technical type of person but i think the best attitude that i have is never to give up and never say never, i keep trying and reading, anyway...if you want to make money online blogging all you need to do first is to improve your blog. I will be listing here ways for you to improve your blog.

Ways to Improve your blog.
  1. Headers Pictures - If you have notices pictures can describe a thousand words. Put some relevant pictures on your blog header and in your post make sure that the picture on your header describe your site because it is your identity, as well the picture in your post are related to your post. This is the great way to direct the attention of your readers to your theme and to your post. One that i used is Picnik to tweak and twist & work on photo's this is very useful tool for your blog.
  2. Clear Contents and Fonts - Make sure that you have clear content and fonts are readable, you have different kinds of readers and you want to make everyone happy. Make your readers comfortable reading with your content or elase you are losing the chance of your reader to subscribe or coming back to your blog.
  3. Subscription and RSS - To encourage your readers to subscribe to your blog make sure that they can easily access to your subscription form and rss and if it is possible to use unique RSS Icon to stand out.
  4. CPC Ads - Do not make the CPC Ads obvious if you can make private ads that's much more better because in most cases people are annoyed, try to experiment, twist, tweak and have fun with your blog.
There are still many ways for your to improve your blog...all you need to do is not to stop reading, studying and trying everything but make sure if you are making changes using the html download the templates to your computer first to be safe.

Learning is fun, improvement is more fun but the best fun of all is when your have mastered the way of monetizing your blog...have fun blogging.

This is just a quick post. I have doodling and my mind is not really in good condition to make proper post, but i decided to share you some sites where you can play around for your Logo or header.

Most of the Blogger really settled already for their site logo or header but some are still looking for great resource and at the same time easy to use too!..

That word should be "This is my very first ART, Not Bad" but hey i didn't notice it, sorry about that.

The links that i will share are the sites that you can use in quickie way. You can play around and once you are happy then that is the time you save them and use them as you logo or header.

  1. Acme Label Maker - Just type the text and click then you will see the result, very quick.

  2. Scribbler - Scribble any text you want, or do some doodling then click done drawing from there do some setting and you good to's fun.

  3. 3dtextmaker - I love this one, you have a great control and a lot of text design to choose from.

  4. image Reflection Generator - This is when your done and you want more -- then put some reflection. I have seen a lot of bloggers using reflection in their text logo, try it you might like it. You can even use it for images.

  5. Picassohead - I am having fun with this one, make a head in a very artistic way.

There so much more but i need to find them, i am sure they are just there somewhere buried in my bookmarked sites, they are too many and i need to do some cleaning in my bookmarks including my toolbar Folders.

I hope you find this useful and if you have additional which am sure you have some resources aswell, please do share them.
