Using Nicknames to Publish Posts in Blogger

I'm sorry this week's post is a little delayed. I was away from the computer for a couple of days. Anyways, I'm back now. This week's tutorial is about changing your profile name to a nickname in Blogger posts (both normal and Dynamic Views template). Being a Google product is one of the best things about Blogger. It allows you to use one account to enjoy many of Google's integrated services. But the sucky part is, recently, with the introduction of G+, Google became serious with its naming policy. Long story short, if you have G+ linked to Blogger (which is cool btw), you don't get to use nicknames in Blogger! Thus in this post, I'm gonna show you how you can use nicknames in your published posts, instead of your real name.

Note: This tweak does not work if you have multiple authors posting in your blog.

Rename 'Recent Date Label Author' in Flipcard Dynamic Views

So, this is becoming increasingly popular. Few readers have asked me how to rename the four categories that you see in Flipcard view: Recent, Date, Label and Author. It might be useful to personalize these tags to suit your blog's theme. Whatever your reason is, this is how you do it (Won't work in IE btw).

By default, the comment link in Dynamic Views is titled as 'Add a Comment'. There isn't any way to change this phrase in the settings. In this post, I'm gonna show you how you can do just this. This is a respond to blog reader Reyes.

Fit Post Titles in Snapshot Thumbnails in Blogger Dynamic Views

Lots of photo bloggers are annoyed by the fact that the post-tiles in Snapshot view are often clipped at the side. By default, only the first 4-5 words are visible, and the rest of them are kept hidden. Moreover, the titles need to share the space with the comment bubbles, which certainly isn't a encouraging factor for anyone who wants to use Snapshot view. Let's change this, shall we?
