How To Use Custom Google Font on Customized Blogger Template?

On my previous post about More Fonts for Blogger Template, we can use this various fonts directly ONLY IF we use default template from Blogger Template Designer feature.

But most of Blogger user, use customized template so can not use this font directly. I'm sure you don't want to mess up your current blog design, but really want to change my fonts. This is step how to change fonts with Google fonts.



  1. Go to Google Font Directory, choose the font you may interested in. For this example, I choose Crafty Girls Font Family.
  2. Click on Use this font menu. To embed font into your web page copy the following code under every font. IMPORTANT NOTE : On Google font directory, the original code is <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Crafty+Girls' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'> , remember to add "/" character before closed tag, so the result code is <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Crafty+Girls' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>
  3. Open Dashboard > Design > Edit HTML, then paste copied modified code put before <b:skin><![CDATA[/* on EDIT HTML template menu.
  4. Simply use the font in your CSS font stack like any other font, for example, if you want to use it on Post Title, find h3 css code then insert the font family. For example : .post h3 { 'Crafty Girls', Arial, Verdana;} . Remember you can use this wherever you want, on sidebar title (find .h2) , on post body (find .post-body) etc
  5. Click Save template button

How to Fix Double Post Problem on My Blog?

I have received so many question about double post issue/problem. Why I get double post on my blog homepage? Why I get double post after changing template? How to fix this double post problem?

Note to all, this problem not because of template. Do you remember, when you change the template, there's an option feature from Blogger, Do you want to delete these widget? If you choose keep widget, all your blog widget keep there. This feature is usefull for keeping widget so you don't need to add it one by one.

But the problem is, when your new template has Blog1 widget, and your current blog has Blog2 widget, it will make a double post. Note that Blog1 or Blog2 is post widget, so it will appear double.

So how to fix this double post problem?

Open Edit HTML, then find this code

<b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

or

<b:widget id='Blog2' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'/>

Just delete one of them.

New Blogger/Blogspot Mobile Template Feature

Last Friday, Blogger has announced a new Blogger feature, Mobile View Feature. Many of us use mobile phone to access blog. It difficult to view desktop version on mobile phone screen size. Some of us ask about how to set mobile view for our blog? Now, we can set mobile view on our blog because Blogger has created mobile template feature.

Initially available as opt-in functionality on Blogger in Draft, mobile templates will re-format your blogs for smartphones to enhance your readers’ viewing experience. In order to activate mobile templates, simply go to Dashboard > Settings > Email & Mobile tab, enable the mobile template option and then save settings. For now, this is beta feature so you can access it through http://draft.blogger.com





Feature highlights

If you have used one of these 12 templates through our Template Designer, your mobile view will be rendered in the same style as your desktop view (other template variants will be rendered as Simple). Some gadgets are also supported**.





  • Mobile ads: Mobile AdSense ads will be displayed at the top of the post pages and at the bottom of the index page if the blog has an AdSense gadget or inline blog ads.

How to Use Google Font API on Blog CSS?

What is Google Font API? The Google Font API helps you add web fonts to any web page. It means you dont need to install font family on your desktop computer to see custom font on any web.
Benefits of the Google Font API include:
  • A choice of high quality open source fonts.
  • Works in most browsers.
  • Extremely easy to use.
For example, the following text uses a web font called Tangerine:


We can apply this font on web without install it on our PC, even our visitor can see it because we use font and script from Google Directory.

Yes, Google have created Google Font Directory. There we can browse this catalog of available fonts, learn about the font designers who created them, and copy the code required to use them on our web page. The fonts in the directory are all released under open source licenses; you can use them on any non-commercial or commercial project.



Now, we can use this unique font on our website or blog. How to use Google Font API ? For reference, you can read this Quick Start example or follow this example.

Step 1
Open Layout>Edit HTML. Add a stylesheet link to request the desired web font(s). Copy these code and paste after <head> code



Note : Change Font name as your desire or you can pick this code from Google Font Directory. For exampale if you want to use Yanone Kaffeesatz font, go to Google font directory, click on font type, then click on Get Code.



Step 2
Insert CSS code
font-family: 'Yanone Kaffeesatz', arial, serif;

You can insert it wherever you want. For example you want use that font for Post title, so insert it after
.post h3 {

or you want to use it as global font so insert it after
body{

etc.

I try to use custom font for my post title as you can see it. I think this is a great idea especially for everyone who concern on blog design and appearance. Thanks Google.

New Transparent Blogger Navbar Style

What's Blogger Navbar? Blogger Navbar is default navigation menu bar on top page. Older Blogger Navbar color only have four traditional color scheme choices — Blue, Black, Tan, and Silver — are somewhat limited, especially if our blog's background color. That's why I hide navbar because doesn't match with my blog color.

But now, Blogger have improved this area. Blogger have added two new color schemes — "Transparent Light" and "Transparent Dark." These new color schemes take advantage of the ability of modern browsers to render transparency (a technique known to web designers as "alpha blending"). This allows the navbar background to blend together with your blog's background color and pattern. That's mean you can get this transparent navbar if you use modern browser, except Internet Explorer 6. This browser doesn't support transparent image.Why dont think to upgrade it? :D





To enable the Transparent Light or the Transparent Dark navbar, go to Layout | Page Elements, then click Edit next to the navbar widget


But, blogger navbar is hidden on my template. How to show that? Read this article How to Show Blogger Navbar.

How To Change Blogger Template?

How to change blogger / blogspot template without deleting widget? Previously I had felt the inconvenience because when I was uploading the new template xml, there is always a warning to delete the widget. If only one or two widgets in the sidebar or you just build your blog, it would not be a problem, but if you have so many widgets in the sidebar of course it will be more complicated. So what's solution?

The first way is backup (copy paste) all the HTML code in the sidebar, including blogroll links to the notepad and then install one by one again. It is still distressing, imagine how many blogroll links or banner code that must be re-installed?

Many friend ask, why I always lost sidebar widget if we upload a new template? For information, why the widgets can be deleted? Because the widget in the old xml template is doesn't exist on the new xml template.

For example, your old template have widget Linklist1, Blogroll1, HTML1, HTML2, HTML3, Label1, Blogarchive1. And your new xml code only have widget Label1, Blogarchive1. So, Linklist1, Blogroll1, HTML1, HTML2, HTML3 will be deleted automatically when uploading new xml template.

Based on this, to change blogger template safely is copying the template xml widget code from old template to new template in the xml which will be uploaded.

Follow this step below :
  • First download and save your old template, open Edit HTML and click on Download Full Template
  • Download notepad + + freeware to re-edit, download here
  • Open old xml template (that you've downloaded first) and new xml template using notepad + +
  • Copy widget code from old template , for example in the sidebar widget, copy the code between
<div id='sidebar-wrapper'>
<b:section class='sidebar' id='sidebar' preferred='yes'>

COPY ALL CODE HERE

</b:section>
</div>

  • Open the new xml template that will be uploaded
  • Paste all the code that is copied from old template to a new template. Just paste to sidebar element, it can be edited(arranged) later through page element
  • Continue till all widget code is copied to new xml template
  • Save your new xml template
  • Upload your new xml to your blog
  • Save it and you won't face delete widget
