Show Date and Timestamp for Each Blogger Post

Re-tweaked by popular demand! Previously, I wrote a tutorial on how you can tweak your template to show date for each one of your Blogger posts. By default, posts that are published on the same day will have only one date shown, particularly on the last published post. In some templates, posts that are published on the same day are even grouped together (see image above).

In my old tutorial, I replaced the date with the timestamp. In other words, the timestamp had to be sacrificed just to have dates shown on each blogger post. But this time around, I've imrpovised the tweak by using some Javascript. You won't have to tamper with your timestamp to have the dates shown on each post. You get both Date and Timestamp with this tweak, and it's wayyy shorter than the other one!

Transformers Dark of the Moon Advanced Screening

Another non-Blogger related post. I managed to secure a ticket for the advanced screening of Transformer Dark of the Moon, happening on Tuesday, 28 of June, at 9PM. And I was the first one to get the ticket! Hooray!

Transformers Dark of the Moon: Sentinel Prime and Megatron

Finally, a Transformers post! My toys are here!! Transformers Dark of the Moon Leader class Sentinel Prime and Voyager class Megatron. Got them for a good deal from Toys R Us, buy 1, get 2nd one for half-price. I was expecting to get them last week itself, but the toys got lost, and Toys R Us were kind enough to send me another one (well, two actually). And here they are! Gonna keep them MISB (not gonna open them) at least until next month. More pictures after the jump.

Rounded Corners for Blogger Widgets

Some time ago, blog reader dirtycowgirl asked if there's a way to give rounded corners for blogger post boxes. Last week, DCG asked if it is possible to extend the tutorial to cover the entire blog. So here it is folks, a tutorial on how you can give rounded corners to your widget boxes. Refer to the other tutorial on how you can give rounded corners to post boxes. BTW, this tweak works best for designer templates (built-in Blogger templates). Even though I put on a lot of efforts to make the tutorials in this blog as generic as possible, sometimes it is just impossible to cover all grounds. In case this tweak doesn't work for you, feel free to leave a comment and I will advise you accordingly. Oh, it won't work in most IEs. I'm not sure about IE9 though, feel free to give it a try.

Changing Blogger Pages Gadget Background and Text Color

No update for 3 weeks, can you actually believe this guy? Anyways, here I am. I've been really tied up due to work and assignments. I've been replying all the contact-form questions though. Which brings me to this week's post. Blog reader Skaerf asked if there is a way to change the background or/and text color of the pages gadget. Yeap, there is. Let's cut to the chase shall we?
