Postings and update control for Blogger’s on the go

google_sites_facebook_twitter_networkedblogs One way you can manage to keep your blog updated with fresh contents and at the same time update the social networks connected to your blog is by creating scheduled postings, using the facebook app: networkedblogs, and by linking your facebook page’s update to your twitter account.

To create schedule postings in the Blogger dashboard - Write your posts as usual but instead of clicking “Publish Post”, select Post Options > Post date and time > Scheduled at, and type in the date you want the posting to publish, then select “Publish Post”

If your blog has a facebook fan page, you can connect your blog and fan page together to alert your facebook fans about updates and new postings on your blog. To do this, you’ll need to install the facebook app: networkedblogs to be able to log your blog in for feed streaming.

Once your blog is logged in, you will need to configure feed settings to enable this feature. To do this, select your blog > feed settings > configure > and select “Auto-Publish blog posts to Page Wall.

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]>
.shiftcontainer{
position: relative;
left: 5px; /*Number should match -left shadow depth below*/
top: 5px;…

<b:loop values='data:posts' var='post'>
<b:if cond='data:post.dateHeader'>
