If you’re going to show the date on every post, why not do it with a little style and make it a little more appealing to viewers? If you want your calendar icon to appear on every post, read Blogspot Vision’s post on how to do that by clicking here to go to the post. Let’s get started but first and foremost, make sure you back-up your existing template, just in case it doesn’t turn out as expected. Steps to follow:1. Login to your Blogger dashboard2. Go to Layout > Edit HTML (Click on “expand widgets” box)3. Search for the following section code: ]]></b:skin>
and add the following section code below right before it:.post .date {
    height: 50px;

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;…

How To Show The Post Date On Every Post

From this tutorial, you will be able to show the post date on every last one of your posts. As we all know, Blogger’s default templates only show a single date for every post that was posted that day. Some readers will find it convenient to have that quick glance at the date on each post, but some will not even notice. 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'>
