Kendhin

This trick is to give a Highlight Author Comment . This will make the blog's owner comments looks different from the visitors comments. It's very usefull and interesting blogger hack tips. You can see the example in my blog. Here is what to do to make a "Highlight Author Comment" effect in Blogspot.


1. Login to blogger, then choose "Layout --> Edit HTML". Don't forget to backup your template first.
2. Check the "Expand Widget Templates" box.
3. Copy this script and put it before ]]></b:skin> or copy to your CSS area.

.comment-body-author {
background: #E6E6E6; /* Background color*/
color: #000; /* Text color*/
border-top: 1px dotted #223344;border-bottom: 1px dotted #223344;border-left: 1px dotted #223344;border-right: 1px dotted #223344;
margin:0;
padding:0 0 0 20px; /* Posotion*/
}


4. Then find this code:

<dl id='comments-block'>
<b:loop values='data:post.comments' var='comment'>
<dt class='comment-author' expr:id='"comment-" + data:comment.id'>
<a expr:name='"comment-" + data:comment.id'/>
<b:if cond='data:comment.authorUrl'>
<a expr:href='data:comment.authorUrl' rel='nofollow'><data:comment.author/></a>
<b:else/>
<data:comment.author/>
</b:if>
said...
</dt>

<b:if cond='data:comment.author == data:post.author'>
<dd class='comment-body-author'>
<p><data:comment.body/></p>
</dd>
<b:else/>


<dd class='comment-body'>
<b:if cond='data:comment.isDeleted'>
<span class='deleted-comment'><data:comment.body/></span>
<b:else/>
<p><data:comment.body/></p>
</b:if>
</dd>

</b:if>

<dd class='comment-footer'>
<span class='comment-timestamp'>
<a expr:href='"#comment-" + data:comment.id' title='comment permalink'>
<data:comment.timestamp/>
</a>
<b:include data='comment' name='commentDeleteIcon'/>
</span>
</dd>
</b:loop>
</dl>


5. The red color text is the code that you have to add to your script. The position must be right.
6. And then save your template.

* You have to login into your blogger account before to give comments.

Create Vertical Menu

Kendhin

We have learned how to create horizontal menu before. Now we will try to make a vertical menu. We will make a vertical menu like the image. Ok let's do it

1. Login to blogger then choose "Layout-->Edit HTML"
2. Put the script below before this code ]]></b:skin> or put it in CSS code area.

.glossymenu, .glossymenu li ul{
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
width: 185px; /*WIDTH OF MAIN MENU ITEMS*/
border: 1px solid black;
}
.glossymenu li{
position: relative;
}
.glossymenu li a{
background: white url('http://blog.superinhost.com/vertical/blue1.gif') repeat-x bottom left;
font: bold 12px Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
color: white;
display: block;
width: auto;
padding: 5px 0;
padding-left: 10px;
text-decoration: none;
}
.glossymenu li ul{
position: absolute;
width: 190px;
left: 0;
top: 0;
display: none;
}
.glossymenu li ul li{
float: left;
}
.glossymenu li ul a{
width: 180px;
}
.glossymenu li a:visited, .glossymenu li a:active{
color: white;
}
.glossymenu li a:hover{
background-image: url('http://blog.superinhost.com/vertical/blue2.gif');
}

* html .glossymenu li { float: left; height: 1%; }
* html .glossymenu li a { height: 1%; }



You can change the menu color, look at the red text (blue1.gif and blue2.gif). Change it with some color menu below. For example, if you want to choose red color, then the code would be like this :

.glossymenu li a{
background: white url('http://blog.superinhost.com/vertical/red.gif') repeat-x bottom left;


dan

.glossymenu li a:hover{
background-image: url('http://blog.superinhost.com/vertical/red.gif');



Vertical Menu Color :

blue1.gif

blue2.gif

green1.gif

green2.gif

red1.gif

red2.gif

pink1.gif

pink2.gif

black1.gif

black2.gif



3. Save your template.
4. Then go to "Page Elements" menu
5. choose "Add a Gadget -->HTML/JavaScript" the insert the code below.

<ul id="verticalmenu" class="glossymenu">
<li><a href="/">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="http://trik-tips.blogspot.com">Trik Blog</a></li>
<li><a href="http://x-template.blogspot.com" >Free Template</a></li>
<li><a href="http://getebook.co.cc">Free Ebook</a></li>
</li>
</ul>



Note :
- The red code is the links.
- The Blue code is anchor text.
