Blogger Magic - Hiding The Blog Pager And Blog Feed Subscription Lines

One of the neatest magic tricks is to make something disappear, with just a flick of the wrist (whether or not holding a "magic" wand).

We see occasional requests to make template components disappear. Many times, we end up recommending editing the blog template. Sometimes, unwanted components are part of the post template - and we have to explain why editing the post template is not a good idea.

Some template components, when properly identified, can be made to disappear with the proper CSS rule. CSS rules can be added, using the Template Designer - and do not require editing the template.

Even better news, CSS rules added using "Add CSS" are persistent. Even changing the blog template - or resetting the post template - does not erase CSS rules, added using the Template Designer.

Two post template components, regularly requested for removal, are the "Blog Pager" caption lines
Newer Posts   Home   Older Posts
and the "Post Feeds" caption
Subscribe to: Posts (Atom)

To hide these components, a simple one line CSS rule is necessary, added using the "Add CSS" option in the Template Designer.

For the "Blog Pager" line:
#blog-pager {display:none}
For the "Posts Feeds" line:
#post-feeds {display:none}
As with any addition using "Add CSS" always precede and follow any added rule, with a blank line.

This trick, as with many magic tricks, is easier to do, than to explain. Was I to add this to my blog, I would have been done, long ago.

No code is working for me. Can you please look into this? I tried putting that code in the CSS box but no changing.

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.
