Blogger Magic - The Mobile Template Redirect, Used On A Desktop Computer

Occasionally, we see the query in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?
How do I view my blog, in the mobile template format, using my desktop computer?

This is an astonishingly easy task to accomplish. Just add the mobile template redirect suffix
?m=1
to the URL being viewed.

The URL of this post is
http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/08/blogger-magic-mobile-template-redirect.html

If I want to view this post, using the mobile template, I can use

http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/08/blogger-magic-mobile-template-redirect.html?m=1

The mobile redirect is applied dynamically, in real life, on a link by link basis - when your reader is using a "mobile" computer.

The redirect is not added to each blog link, by the template. If you click on a link in this post - either in the content, as in the paragraph above - or in a label link or other cross link provided by Blogger - you will be returned to a post displayed using the desktop template, when you are using a desktop computer.

Only a "mobile" computer will show you, persistently, all mobile template formatted content. To view mobile template pages, as you surf the blog, using a "desktop" computer, you will have to repeatedly add the suffix.

Magic only goes so far - sorry.

You can also click on "View web version", below the "Home" link, to return to the "desktop" template, and the post being viewed.

Enabling custom mobile template show duplicate title tags and descriptions.
All the info in the head section like description, keywords is also shown in the custom blogger template.
Any idea on resolving this issue as it affects everyone who has enabled custom blogger template.

Hey Avatar,

This sounds like a good issue to discuss in a new topic, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
