Change Dynamic View's Blog Title Color and Size


I've been publishing lots of Dynamic View basic customization tutorials lately. All these tutorials are so gonna be moot when the option to customize Dynamic View becomes available. For the mean time, let's focus on this good question that I got from blog reader रवि. He wants to change the color and font size of his Dynamic View's blog title. And here's how.

If you're using the old Blogger interface: Go to Dashboard - Design - Template Designer - Advanced - Add CSS - paste the following code - Press enter after the last character of the last line } - Apply to Blog.

If you're using the new Blogger interface: Go to Dashboard ('House' symbol) - Template - Customize - Advanced - Add CSS - paste the following code - Press enter after the last character of the last line } - Apply to Blog.
#header.header .title a h1{
color: blue;
text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px black;
font-size: 56px;
}
Change the values above accordingly.
  • Color - controls the main color of your blog title
  • Text-shadow - Controls the outline of your blog title. By default it is set to white. Feel free to play with the values.
  • Font-size - Controls your blog title's font size. By default it is set to 28px.

You can get a personalized color by replacing the text 'blue' or 'black' with a hex code, like '#0033CC'. Generate your own hex code by visiting the link below:

    @the Junkie book: Thanks for letting me know. I've fixed the link now. As for changing your blog title's font in Dynamic View, what font are you going for? I'll see if I can do anything about it. But right now it doesn't look like we can change to web-fonts yet.

  8. @Tammy: Add this to your CSS:

    .header-drawer #pages.tabs ul li{
    display: block;
    margin-right: 80px;

    }

    Adjust the value '80' accordingly. If you have further questions that are not related to the tutorial in this post, kindly see this page --> Ask A Question

  9. How do I change the font size of blog posts in Dynamic views? Not the header but the actual posts? I've tried to figure out what the code is (.page, .post, .main) to no avail.

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Shepherd: You can use the post editor to change the font size for some of the views.

    And use the following CSS to apply a uniform standard across all view:
    div.summary, div.article-content, div.item p.summary{
    font-size: 20px !important;
    }

    Cheers.

    1. I've tried to use this CSS but it doesn't seem to be working for me.

      I just can't seem to change the size of my post text in Dynamic Views - I've tried it 2 or 3 times. What am I doing wrong?

    2. Well, for once, this tweak is to change Blog's title text (not post text). Second, this tweak is for dynamic view templates only. You're using an Awesome Inc template.

      You have a much simpler option. Have you tried Dashboard - Template - Customize - Advanced - Page? See attached screenshot below:

    3. Ok - thanks for the corrections :)

      I have tried the simpler option you suggest a couple of times. But nothing changes to the text in the blog post itself... although it seems to change the date, label info etc at the end.

      I've individually changed every post to Arial, but can't get the font size to increase.

    4. I think I can see the problem. Tell me something Albert, did you compose your pose directly on Blogger's editor, or did you compose it elsewhere (say, Microsoft Word) and then transferred it to Blogger's editor before publishing it?

      Delete
    5. Your totally right. I worked out the problem last night. Like a noob, I'd been cutting and pasting all posts from Word.

      I've since been through every post and fixed the html to font.size=normal and life is sweet again.

      Wont be making that mistake again.

      Thanks for your help on this and other questions too.

  13. Thanks for letting me know. Here's another question. How can it change the background color on the front content magazine page only...and not affect any other views or pages. I tryed ("#items li, .overview-inner, #content, .item.hentry.selected, .item.hentry.open, .item.ybyss, #feature, .overview-inner, .column .item, .viewitem-content {
    background: #FF8809 !important;
    }
    .items.hfeed{
    background: transparent !important;
    } ")
    but it changes the other main pages also. Thanks again for your help. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. @Marky: Add this to your css:

    #content #lead, #content #feature, #content #fold{
    background: #FF8809 !important;

  18. I was using the magazine view on one of my blog as I like the way it presents each post. But like most who don't use CSS, I can't do much customization. What I wanted to know though is whether we can add an ad code using CSS that will appear within the body of a post. What I am doing now is just placing them on the body as I am writing my post and so I have to do it on every post. This is what made me switch back to my old template.

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Julius: CSS is only useful when it comes to styling. Adding an ad will require you to insert code into your template, and CSS can't handle that. The slightest access we have to HTML now is via posts, and seems like you've already figured that out.

    That being said, my AdSense works fine in DV. If your ads are from AdSense, you can have it working in your DV as well. Cheers.

  23. I'm just wondering, is it possible to change the post title size of it, before it expands into full view? Like for example when you've just entered the blog and all you get is a preview of the actual post. Cos all I've managed to do it change the size of the post title when it's already expanded.

    1. Hi Clare,

      Yes it is possible. Are we talking about making the size larger for all 7 dynamic views, or just the default view? It'll be helpful if I could have a look at your Dynamic Views blog.

  25. Hello,
    I changed the size and the font and the shadows but if i choose a big size like 160px; it doesn't fit in to the container.
    It kinda looks cool but where should I add in the height parameter? There are so many different type of header properties, couldn't find which : }
    Thank you in advance.

    1. I know what you mean. See the following post, it will help. You need all those attributes, except for line 22. Be careful when you're changing the values in the attributes. All changes made must be uniform (eg: if u reduce the top-most value by 34px, then all values must be reduced by the same amount).

      Let me know if you need further help :)

    1. Hi Jonnie,

      Glad you're personalizing your blog a lot. About your question, we might be able to do it (not sure, I need to give it a try first). But we need to fix your header first. Your header seems to be overlapping with your header-bar. Is this by design?

  29. Hiya,

    Thanks a lot for all the tutorials, they're really excellent. I've been trying (like the guy above) to increase the font size to 100px or so, but when I do that there isn't enough space in the container.

    I know you directed a guy before to the 'add header' post but when I copy in that code and change the pixels (i am definitely changing all the variables by the same amount) all the blog does is put a massive blank space between the title and the header bar, regardless of the pixel size I input.

    Sorry I'm pretty crappy at computers, but I'd love it if you knew a way I could make that space appropriately large for a bigger blog title.

    Thanks

    2. Thanks! The code is perfect :)

      I still have a couple of issues with all this though. I thought I'd ask just in case you know a way to fix them-

      -My gadgets overlap the scrollbar on static pages

      -The pages in the header bar aren't aligned with the title (if I increase the % they just turn into a drop down menu)

      -There's now quite a lot of ugly dead space actually in between the header bar and the start of the first post.

      You've already helped me so much so don't worry if you don't know / have time to fix these issues, but I just thought there's no harm in asking!

      Thanks again so so much :)

    3. Hi Tom,

      1) Replied your other comment.

      2) Can you take them out the drop-down menu so that I can have a look? And what do you mean aligned with the title? Do you want them to start in the middle of the header bar?

      3) Sorry bout that. In my previous code, change this:

      #header-container {
      height: 205px;
      }

      to this:

      #header-container {
      height: 150px;
      }

  31. Sorry to bother you again, but I'm also having a problem with the gadgets overlapping the scrollbar on static pages. I saw on the comments section of another post you suggested an html code to put at the bottom of the static pages to stop this from occurring, but for some reason it didn't work, I tried it a few times. Thanks again :)

Same with post font size. I used your suggested code:

  35. For the Magazine layout, a new incoming user that sees the newest post might not know to click on the frame to read the entire post because it looks like the article ends naturally with a period.

    On the main page as you're looking at that newest post, is it possible to automatically add a "read more..." comment toward the end of that first post?

    On the older posts, when you scroll down, it's quite obvious that you have to click in because there's only a couple lines of text. But on the newest post, it shows a few paragraphs and it might not be as obvious that you have to click on the frame to read more.

    Check out BostonJew.com if you'd like to see what I mean.

  39. Sorry - you have probably already answered this question, but I am having trouble making this work. I am trying to change the font in my blog title to a Google Font (Satisfy) which is not listed as a choice on Dynamic Views. From what I gather, I have to add the font to my HTML and then add something to CSS. Would you step me though what is necessary? I'd like to keep the colors and outlining currently shown on Rock Salt, but just switch the font to Satisfy.

      And that I would then put into the CSS:
      #main a{

      The only place I am going to use the Satisfy font is in the title, so I hope this makes sense. If I am way off base, just stop me and I will wait until you do the other post before I try anything.

      Ciao!

  40. Hi! I was wondering how can you change the font on the post title to a custom one? The font I want is not listed on Blogger. Thanks!

    2. Thanks!

      I tried adding this, but it's not working for me :( This is what I put:

      #header.header .title a h1{
      color: #EFE8E6
      text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px black;
      font-size: 25px;
      }

    3. Sorry for the late reply..

      The code above will not change your font type. Have you selected a font type yet?

  41. Hello,

    First, I'd like to say how helpful all of your information on the Blogger Dynamic Views is! Seriously, without it, I wouldn't have gotten as far as I have with my project. After trying a few different bits of code, I'm stuck in how to change the font color for the entry titles that are stacked on the left-hand side of the screen (set up like a navigation bar). I'm sure there's a way to do this - - can I enlist your help?

    Here's the site address:: http://newhallvillecmt.blogspot.com/
    And the text on the left, I'd like to change to this yellow: fbd568

    Many, MANY thanks!
    Heather

    1. Hi Heather,

      Sorry for the late reply. Here's what you need:

      .item.hentry .title a{
      color: #fbd568 !important;
      }
      .item.hentry.selected .title a{
      color: rgba(51,51,51,1) !important;
      }

      Let me know how it goes. Cheers :)

    1. Sure thing Jen. Here, add this to your 'Add CSS' box and adjust the value '20px' accordingly:

      #header .tabs li .menu-item{
      font-size: 20px !important;
      }

      Cheers :)

    1. Hello there,

      I see you're trying to insert a non-Google-Web-font into your template. I'm afraid I have not had much luck with this. That said, see if the following helps:

  46. Hey there,

    Great tips! Quick question, your CSS, will it affect the blog description as well? because it seems my description size went bigger than before. But the blog title size is big as I wanted it to be.

    thanks!

    1. Hello there,

      The code in this particular page will not do anything to your blog's description. Perhaps there is another code that is doing it, or maybe you're just zoomed-in in your browser view so everything appears larger.

  47. The trick doesn't work for me :-(

    Any reason it may not work ? (changed colors and font size, but the blog title does not changeany aspect).

    Thanks

  48. Thanks for the awesome site and tips! You've singlehandedly helped me improve countless things on my blog. Here's a question I haven't seen covered:

    Is it possible to make select only select words in the blog title/description bold? I've been trying, but can't figure it out, as all the CSS code options seem to apply to the entire title or description. Thanks!

    1. Hello Tommy,

      Good question! It can be done, but not via CSS. You'd have to dive into your HTML to get this changes done. What's your blog's address anyway? Let me see if I can summarize the steps for you for your template.

  50. Wow! This is just perfect. Thank you so much for the codes! These are really helpful.

    One question: If I want to add a superscript font like a registered or trademark sign...is there a way to do that? I just need that sign in really small size...its just that I can't change the size of half of the title. Please let me know! Thank you!

    1. You can't just superscript some of the text in your blog's title. I'm afraid it's either all or nothing :(

      Delete
    2. Hmm, thanks. I was thinking the same thing. Seriously your codes came in so very helpful!

      One more question: Is there a way to freeze the top portion of the blog in the dynamic view? As in make it thick enough so that the centered blog title and description have enough space and do not look cramped? And meanwhile, do away with the header buttons and bar itself because I have no use for it? Thanks again!

    3. I'm not sure if this can be pulled off, since we'll have to change the structure of the template. Have you seen it done on any blog btw?

  51. Hi Yoga! Thanks, and no, I haven't seen this on any blog yet, but then, I am only experimenting with this one blog. Meanwhile, I also ran into a different problem. When I use this customized template on my mobile phone, it gives me two errors: "Links too close" and "Content too wide for screen." I'd like to get rid of those errors. For now, I use the default template. But in that one, there's a drop-down menu from the header bar that one has to click to see the different header bar buttons. Ideally, I'd like the drop-down to go away and the header bar should have all the buttons like "Home" "Blog" etc. Is that possible? Thanks again, Yoga!

    1. Are you using a third party template for the two errors you're getting? You might want to run this by the creator, as errors in custom templates usually takes a long time to troubleshoot. As for the default template, links being consolidated under one drop down is the default behaviour. I'll see if we can work around this but responsive templates is not my area of expertise, so this might take awhile :)

  52. Hi Yoga,

    Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately I changed my view recently to Magazines and this CSS seems to no longer working. I want the title to be bigger. Do you mind have a peek at my site and assist?

    1. Hello Ishah,

      Did a quick test, the CSS should still enlarge your blog's title - unless if we're talking about the post title. Could you give this another whirl?

      #header.header .title a h1{
      text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px black !important;
      font-size: 60px !important;
      }
