Happy 4th Of July Fireworks Javascript For Blogger

Happy 4th of July everybody and have a safe holiday! Here’s a little something for the special day.

You will need the following files for this tutorial
1. red.gif
2. blue.gif
3. green.gif
4. orange.gif
5. firework.js

Note: You will need to save these files to your webserver.

Steps to follow:
1. Open the file firework.js

2. You will see the first part of the code like the following section code below. You will only need to modify the first part of the section code(in bold). For example:

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // Javascript made by Rasmus - // ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

var FIRE_Path = ""; // Path to the directory containing the firework-pictures

var FIRE_no = 10; // Numbers of Rockets in one firework

var FIRE_Pause = 5; // Pause between the fireworks in seconds

var FIRE_SameColor = false; // true = The rockets have the same color in one firework

Note: You will need to change the section code in red to the link containing the firework-pictures. You can also modify the numbers of rockets in one firework with the text in blue. Text in orange indicates the pauses between the fireworks in seconds. And last but not least, the text in green is in conjunction with the colors of the firework, either true(rockets will have same color in one firework, or false(rockets that will have various colors in one firework.)
3. Once you have modified the script and uploaded it to your webserver, you will need to login to your Blogger dashboard

4. Go to Layout > Page Elements > Add a Gadget > HTML/JavaScript

5. Next, add the following section code:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Note: You will need to change the section code in red to the link containing the firework script.

6. Select Save after you have added the section code and preview to see your fireworks!

CSS DIV boxes with drop shadows

This example shows how to add a drop shadow style to any container element using CSS. It does this by wrapping the desired content in a DIV with its background color set to a color of the desired color for the shadow. Another DIV is set for your content and is shifted slightly upwards and to the left to expose the shadow. The "master" DIV wraps it all up but is shifted to the right and downwards, returning the entire markup to it's original page position.

IE6 is not compatible with this example, but you can apply conditional HTML to hide the effect in that browser. In contrast, IE7 is compatible with this example for finally updating to proper CSS.

Note: If you will be using an image for your content, you should give ".shadowcontainer" an explicit height, reflecting that of the image's for fixed and set location when viewed.

CSS Code
<![if !IE 6]>
position: relative;
left: 5px; /*Number should match -left shadow depth below*/
top: 5px;…

This tutorial is definitely handy if you plan to use a calendar icon as your post date, since the timestamp can be modified. As always, make sure you download your current existing template just in case it doesn’t turn out as expected.

Steps to follow:
1.Login to your Blogger dashboard.
2. Go to Layout > Edit HTML (click on “expand widgets” box)
3. Now search for the red line of code or similar code:Note: If you can’t seem to find the line in red, try the second section code in blue.<div class='post-feeds'>
<b:loop values='data:posts' var='post'>
<b:if cond='data:post.dateHeader'>
<h2 class='date-header'>
