Coloring comments, 3-column Rounders etc

I just wanted to update you all about some nice hacks that are available in the neighborhood. Vivek has written about how to add background colors to your comments. This one builds upon my author comment highlighting hack. If you are somebody who gets excited about using colors, this is a great way to improve your blog's visual impact.

John Figth has managed to convert Rounders 3 template to 3 columns. He has written a descriptive post on what changes he did. If you are interested in this, try it out and ask him if you have any doubts. Here's the blog where he uses this new template.

And, Volker has created a Feeds page where he displays the latest posts from all the various Blogger hack blogs. One page, too many hacks!

Ramani, I need your help. I have read your blog and found it to be very helpful. I'm asking if you can help recode my blog. The old template was set for Blogger and now I can't convert it to beta because I don't know much about CSS. My blog is here. You can email me at mythoughtsonstuff@gmail.com. I would like to complete the change before 2007. Thank you.

Thanks Ramani for the everything here in your site.

I want to ask a question about comments. How can we make links open in new window at comments section, links of commenters name and links in the post etc. This makes visitors not leave our site. Please help about that. Thanks.

Escaper,

You will have to add target='_blank' to all those links. I am not aware of an easy way.

ohh great. i suppose this URL(http://neo.anniyalogam.com/) is blog. then y blogspot is not there?

Ramani said...

Kishor,

When I started this blog, Blogger didn't have custom domain support. Once this blog became a Blog of note, this URL was linked from numerous blogs and so I didn't want to move it to another address when custom domains were announced.
