New Blogger Template : Standardized

Standardized Blogger Template ImageIts been nearly 3 months since the Stylify template. Now I am presenting my second template named Standardized. It has its roots in responsive design and has some awesome features like threaded Reply comment & eye-catching Header design. A mix of design and usability.

See Demo


Initially I started making this template with the goal to make it W3C valid. Thats where the name Standardized came from, the one that follows standards. Near the end of process I hit a really nasty cross-browser issue (a.k.a. IE sucks) , and by just 1 error this template remained from obtaining that "VALID" markup title. This is just version 1 and better onces are to come. The highlight of this template is the Nested Reply comment feature inside the Blogger comment system itself! A really amazing hack...

-Responsive design (No horizontal scrollbar till 580px)
-Cross browser compatibility 
-Page Navigation
-Widgets ready sidebar
-Its own Related Post widget
-Stylish commenting system with comments having gradient background style
-Attractive Post Title
-jQuery and CSS3 powered Header design
-Four column footer
-Threaded Reply feature for Blogger Comment system
-Eye-catching Sidebar Design
-Search Engine Optimized
-Near W3C Valid
-90%+ Google Page Speed score

How to configure some of the Features:

The code for the menu widget has been separately included in the Download Package. Rather than integrating it into the Template and making it difficult to edit ,I have included it separately. All the styles are included beforehand just the Links have to be copied in. The menu should be in the section of the Header (being just below the Header).

2.Page Navigation
To change the number of posts to be shown on using pagination find the term postperpage ( Using CTRL+F ) ,There will be a script something like this

<script type='text/javascript'>
var home_page=&quot;/&quot;;
var urlactivepage=location.href;
var postperpage=3;
var numshowpage=6;
var upPageWord =&#39;Previous&#39;;
var downPageWord =&#39;Next&#39;;

You can change the number values as you like in the above code.
var postperpage=9; → Changes the no of posts that will show up on clicking any page number.
var numshowpage=3;→ Changes the number of linking to show in the widget

Note: Make sure that you also set the value of Number of Posts on Main Page (Go to Design > Page Elements , Click on Edit option of Blog Post and then Number of posts on main page: ) to same as that of the postperpage value.

3.Enabling Reply option for the comments
The the reply option in the comment will have to enabled . Just search for the term blogid= ( using CTRL+F ) with "Expand Widget Preview" option ticked. Below it you will see "blogID=XXXXXXXXXXXX" replace this XXXXXXXXXXX number with your Blog's ID. [To find your Blog's ID just Open Design Tab and in the Address bar of your browser there will be a very long number , just paste that here]

4.Social Media Buttons and Search Box
The Download package also contains code for these two widgets. Either you can put them in separate widgets or put them together. In case you put them together then make sure the search box is above the icons and also include it in the section just below the Header (In Page Elements/Layouts). The widget containing the Social Media Icon should always be in this section.

This template came in the wake of many users complaining about different problems in the previous template.

Someone said...

Really great template bro

@SomeoneThanks :)

@Prayag Verma wowww thank's dude eheh.

DAR said...

great template.
but I have problem with the page navigation. I follow your instrunctions but still having the problem. Could you please check?

@DARBefore anything firstly to remove the undefined undefined thing in the post, go to Settings > Formatting > Timestamp format , change it to this type Tuesday,January 10,2012

Do this and then try the page navigation widget, let me know if it works or not

DAR said...


I made the change, but the problem with the navigation remains :(

@DARJust for confirmation ,what is the value of number of posts on main page in the Blog Posts widget present in Page Elements

DAR said...



Okay try this, Go to Edit HTML of your blog, in the beginning you will see the following code:

<meta content='text/html; charset=UTF-8' http-equiv='Content-Type'/>
<script type='text/javascript'>(function() { var a=window;function c(b){this.t={};this.tick=function(b,i,d){d=void 0!=d?d:(new Date).getTime();this.t[b]=[d,i]};this.tick("start",null,b)}var f=new c;a.jstiming={Timer:c,load:f};try{var g=null;;null==g&&a.gtbExternal&&(g=a.gtbExternal.pageT());null==g&&a.external&&(g=a.external.pageT);g&&(}catch(h){};a.tickAboveFold=function(b){var e=0;if(b.offsetParent){do e =b.offsetTop;while(b=b.offsetParent)}b=e;750>=b&&a.jstiming.load.tick("aft")};var j=!1;function k(){j||(j=!0,a.jstiming.load.tick("firstScrollTime"))}a.addEventListener?a.addEventListener("scroll",k,!1):a.attachEvent("onscroll",k);
<meta content='blogger' name='generator'/>
<link href='' rel='icon' type='image/x-icon'/>
<link href='' rel='canonical'/>
<link href='' rel='alternate' title='Atom' type='application/atom xml'/>
<link href='' rel='alternate' title='RSS' type='application/rss xml'/>
<link href='' rel='openid.server'/>
<!--[if IE]><script type="text/javascript" src=""></script> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE]> <script> (function() { var html5 = ("abbr,article,aside,audio,canvas,datalist,details," "figure,footer,header,hgroup,mark,menu,meter,nav,output," "progress,section,time,video").split(','); for (var i = 0; i < html5.length; i ) { document.createElement(html5[i]); } try { document.execCommand('BackgroundImageCache', false, true); } catch(e) {} })(); </script> <![endif]-->

Now remove this code and in place of it insert this code

<b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/>

Try it and tell whether it works or not

DAR said...

It doesn't work. I'm sure that I made something wrong :(((

@DAROkay ,Try re-installing the template.

If it doesn't work even then, then I suggest waiting for a period of 1-2 days as most of your post are very recent. It is very unlikely but there may be a issue with the indexing.

I will take up this issue in the Blogger Forum

DAR said...

Ok, I'll wait.
thanks for your support

@DARI have posted the problem in the Blogger Forum ,you can check the thread Here

While checking your blog I found the way to access the 2nd page

When the 2nd page button is click it redirects to this URL

But in reality the 2nd page exists at this URL

This is really unique problem ,I suppose it is something to do lot of post being posted together. This problem is most probably at Blogger side and will be fixed automatically

DAR said...

Thats true.
I've changed the publish date of the posts and it works.

@DARThat's nice ,I am happy the problem is solved :)

Sam Sexy said...

Please give another link.

Sam Sexy said...

@Sam Sexy

Finally go it :)
Needed to download through proxy due to that STOP SOPA act.

rahul roy said...

wtf? I'm search part id not working

sagar said...

thanks but how to add mete tags

@sagarJust add the following code below the <head> tag

<meta content='YOUR BLOG DESCRIPTION' name='description'/>
<meta content='AUTHOR NAME' name='author'/>

Similarly you can add the keyword tag but it is now obsolete and not used by any major search engine

@rahul royThe search box I have put is the default one that is inbuilt in each Blogger blog. If you have to use a custom search engine in it , then you have to do minor changes in the code. Check this post for more Information

Pradeep said...

Prayag Bro, could you please tell me, how to add custom styles to the comments. As you have shown in

Firstly you will have to follow this post on how to make these comments into the Official Threaded Comments. Then you can directly apply the styles from the post you mentioned.

Pradeep said...

Send the template via email, i will fix it for you

Ernst said...

Jasmine said...

thanks a lot, it worked!
now please help me to change the blogger title font size and font itself? actually i want to reduce the font size and change its color.
thanks in advance

To change the Color and Size ,search for .letter-container h1 span

and in this you will see the following

font-size: 35px;
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=90)";
filter: alpha(opacity=90);
color: green;

change the font-size and color attribute according to your needs

For changing the Font search for .letter-container h1

you will see the following code:

font-family: 'Trade Winds', Arial, sans-serif;
font-weight: 700;

Change Trade Winds with some other font, the blog has the following fonts

How to apply Blogger Threaded Comments in here tothis template, because I still have a problem with that. The threaded comment isn't working properly on my blog. Any suggestion to fix this problem?

sorry for my bad English

Nice Template.. thanks 4 publish

I checked your blog , I suppose you have solved this issue now

Firstly check this post , its the newer version of the Threaded Comments by Tien. I will do a tutorial about it soon

i have installed this template in my blog, its awesome.
But i have a question, may be it is not relevant but i am sure you will not get angry at me :)
I am installing a widget, which says paste a code before div id='main-wrapper' code, but i couldn't find that code in this template, is there any alternate code available? i have also asked this to that gadget owner, but he has not replied yet, that's why i decided to post here as well.

Search for div class='content' instead

If you would tell about the widget , then I can help you more effectively

Yup :) thanks

Very Nice Blog thanks You For Template :)

catper said...

it seems that u have implemented css button code in the template because whenever i try to put html button code it shows a button u have implemented, but i want to use custom button, so please guide me how can i remove that button code so that i can use my own. thanks

Another button code can also be inserted in place of the old one

The class button is attached to the CSS of the button

If you want to add another button then assign it another class ,like button1 and then in the HTML give it class="button1"

catper said...

Thanks for reply,
i can't rename class name i want to add because its a css file and iam not author of this file, so it would be easy for me if i can rename your button class.

catper said...

Are you there? i need reply for above query.

You can search for .button in the template and change every instance with .button2

catper said...

thank u, i changed it.

is there any tutz to apply this , its new version of Threaded Comments,

Could you post tutz how to apply that in this template ?

sorry for my bad english
