New Blogger Template : Stylify v2

stylify template screenshot small

A new Blogger template named Stylify v2 . It is quite similar to the current design of the blog. The aim was to minimize the use of JavaScript and instead use CSS to meet the needs. It has a simple design and is ultra optimized for Fast Loading (Given that you don't add 1000 extra widget ! ). The default Blogger Style-sheet has been removed to fasten it up even more. The SEO part is also taken care for with automatic Meta Description facility. Its a uncomplicated template with emphasis on Speed and Style.

Configurable Features:

This template has a lot of customization possibility. Now I will be explaining how to configure some basic features of this template according to your requirements

1. Menu

configure page list

The menu used is the default Blogger menu. When you will Install the template on your blog , you will see a stray text "Pages" written near the Menu. To remove it , Go to Layouts and Click the Edit button of the Pages Widget . Now in the title field remove everything and Save the Widget.

Extra Note: When you will install the template you will also see a Date above the post title and also the default Blogger sharing buttons . To remove them go to Layouts and edit the Blog Post widget. Untick the Date and Sharing button option and save.

2. Pagination

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

configure blog post blogger layout

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. Border of Image

with without border

There is a additional feature present to add borders around your image  , To add it just add a class="thumb" in the img tag , as shown below 

<img class="thumb" src="image.png" />

4. Using the CSS3 Button

Hey Prayag buddy.. thanks for that.. looks good.. :)
But, your current theme you are using has some problem??
The comment box is out of the main content area..

Vinod said...

One more observation is: your current theme moves to the left when using Ctrl and minus. It is not central aligned.. Things move away from each other??
This is the case with your new theme..
Just some suggestions buddy.. from a Blogger addict :)

Hey Nice template Buddy...Cool one..

Marieta said...

Good aftenoon, nice template. Can you say how can i change the background? and another question, is the template optimiced for IE? thanks

To change the Background , in the Edit HTML search for

body{overflow-x:hidden !important;font:normal normal 14px Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;color:#333333;background:url('');}

Here change the Image URL with the one of your choice

There are two major issue with the IE version
Firstly the bar containing the author , label and the share buttons. To fix it search for

<div style='font-size:12px !important;background:url(&#39;;);padding: 5px 0px 5px 5px; margin: -8px;overflow: hidden !important;'>

Here change the value of margin from -8px to 1px

Second issue is the lot of space present in the content and header , to fix add the following style just before the </head> tag

<!--[if IE]>
<style type="text/css" >
.content {top : 0px !important;}

Thanks Beben Koben

To remove the Delete option , just add the following CSS

.item-control {display:none !important;}

Also one thing to note is that , this option is only visible to the Blog Admin and not the readers

Visit this post for the Search box design

Another Awesome Creation ;) !! Hope you don't mind if i customize that !! :P
