2. Add the following javascript and style sheet link below right after the opening head tag of your blog:


<span id="preserve153fad06688e4daba0a63153cc59a967" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-"></script></span> <span id="preservec55a3f5b20c642859020b34d0b920624" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.easing.min.js"></script></span> <span id="preservee1ba8ce4b8c2419b8ec01f337d9c4f45" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.lavalamp.min.js"></script></span> <span id="preserve4cc7688c44874d529d432ce8ba0d6e6b" class="wlWriterPreserve"><script type="text/javascript"> $(function() { $("#1, #2, #3").lavaLamp({ fx: "backout", speed: 700, click: function(event, menuItem) { return false; } }); }); </script></span>





3. Next, you will need to add the following section code below to where you want the featured content box to appear. You can do this by adding a new HTML/JavaScript widget or paste it within your HTML section of your layout.


<ul class="lavaLampWithImage" id="1"> <li><a href="#">Home</a></li> <li><a href="#">Plant a tree</a></li> <li><a href="#">Travel</a></li> <li><a href="#">Ride an elephant</a></li> </ul>

4. You should preview your blog first to see if all codes have been implemented correctly. If so, save your template and you’re finished.

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'>
