Blogger Views

Blogger added five dynamic templates that transform blogs into interactive apps. Just add /view to the URL of a blog that offers full feeds (for example: googlesystem.blogspot.com/view) and you'll be able to try the new views: flipcard, mosaic, sidebar, snapshot and timeline. Blogger's templates offer features like infinite scrolling, progressive image loading, smart search, filtering posts by date, author or label. "These new views use the latest in web technology, including AJAX, HTML5 and CSS3," explains Google.




In the near future, bloggers will be able to customize the templates and use them without having to change the URL.

  3. That is way cool. But, a question - why not just add it to the blogger bar across the top?

  4. Timeslide and Sidebar are my favourites. Glad to see some of Google's products getting some good UI refresh (even if these are just templates). And agree with Themis that Google Reader would fit in well..

  5. This is great! Great feature. I know there are 3rd party mobile apps like Pulse that read off feeds in a similar UI layout.. It would be awesome if Blogger has its own FREE iphone app too.

  9. Google had reached the factor of being at the top rank of the Search engines. And there are huge numbers of internet marketer who are doing their best to belong on the ranking of the search engines. The post is very informative to all the bloggers.

  10. I really hope they will soon add they ability for readers to select their default view as well - I really like the Sidebar view and would like to read all blogs in that. Also, just noticed, that although the views work nicely for viewing, now that I clicked to post a comment, I was brought to the default view again (in a new tab btw).

    Please polish this up Google!
