    Hi, Piyush. I have granted you admin privileges on earnthewrite.blogspot.com.

    I was able to make the ads appear only when it is viewed individually; and I like that. However, I have sponsored posts in socialspark where adsense ads are not allowed to appear on the post. I tried following your steps, but it wouldn't work. May I ask for you help how to remove adsense in specific posts only? I still want the adsense to appear on other posts when viewed individually and not on homepage. My current problem is only on how to take the adsense off for my sponsored posts in socialspark. I am new and know nothing that much; I hope you will help me. I would really appreciate your help and thank you in advance. Keep helping people and newbies like me. God bless...

  9. Emily - Bentobloggy.com August 16, 2010 at 11:16 PM
    Piyush, thank you! How do you number each of the comments like you have on this comment page? That's what would really be super helpful!
  10. Piyush - Admin @ Best How To Blogger August 16, 2010 at 11:30 PM
    @Emily, I am using Blogger variables which display comments and hence numComments variable is giving us the count of comment, wee need to just display it with some eye catching UI. That's it! :)
  11. Sally August 27, 2010 at 6:54 PM
    I have followed your steps from "Add Best Numbered Page Navigation Widget in Blogger with Scroll Effect" post and it's working just for my Home page and for labels not. I saw in your demo page ( http://demo-paginator3000-abu-farhan.blogspot.com/search/label/Ustadz%20Abu%20Ihsan%20Al-Maidany?&max-results=7) that it's working for labels too.
    Please help :(

    Thank you!
  12. γυμνή ψυχή September 5, 2010 at 7:00 AM
    By default,the blogger label pages will show 20 posts.We will have to cut this down to the value that we gave for the variable postperpage. For this we will have to edit our template.
    Go to the Edit HTML page and expand the Widget Templates
    Now find each occurrence of


    (including the quotes) and replace each of it with

    'data:label.url + "?&max-results=5"'

    Here 5 is the number of posts to be displayed per page (the variable postperpage).
  13. Sally September 10, 2010 at 8:52 PM
    @γυμνή ψυχή

    I did what you said and still not working. Maybe the problem it's that I'm finding just one occurrence of 'data:label.url' , although i have a lot of labels in my page.

    Here is a couple of lines where 'data:label.url' it's located, maybe it helps you.

    I don't know what to try anymore...
  14. Sally September 11, 2010 at 9:01 PM
    Sorry, I can not post code lines...Maybe you can help me anyway.

    Thank you.

    Hello Sir, Thanks for a very helpful site. My website is http://www.ignousuccess.co.cc/ and i am facing the same problem with the dropdown menu which other users have faced due to use of template designer. It will be kind of you to look at it and do the needful. As per instruction i have send the invite. Thanking you.
  16. Manu Adam September 13, 2010 at 12:51 PM
    Hi, After sending the invite I have also given you the admin privilege. It is great that you are helping people in such out of the way fashion. Thanks a lot.
  17. Piyush - Admin @ Best How To Blogger September 13, 2010 at 10:05 PM
    @Manu Adam, I have completed your menu design and now it working fine (i guess). Happy blogging.
  18. Manu Adam September 14, 2010 at 7:37 PM
    Thanks a lot for taking your time to address my problem. But i feel there is still some problem with the menu. First, when we click at any menu, that page opens but it is always first link (Home on my site www.ignousuccess.co,cc) that remains selected instead of that particular menu link. Secondly, when one hovers any link , the sub menu open opens beautifully indeed but since its background is white and page background is also white, so the submenu is not so clear. If only I could change the background to some darker color,it would be much better. Again thanks a lot for your kind help. I am so grateful to you from my heart.
  19. Sally September 14, 2010 at 9:15 PM
    @Piyush - Admin
    Hi, I have posted a comment on 27 august where I've asked you something about page numbering including labels and I didn't figure out how to do it yet...maybe can you help me somehow. The solution γυμνή ψυχή gave me it's not working for me. My blog it's http://worlds-talents.blogspot.com/
    Thank you!
  20. Piyush - Admin @ Best How To Blogger September 14, 2010 at 9:21 PM
    @Manu Adam, you will not be able to change focus run time, so your request "menu remains selected instead of that particular menu link" will not be complete. Sorry for that (because we can give run-time CSS to every blog URL) . Apart from that i have changed background color of the sub-menu to the "AliceBlue", i think now you will like the menu on your blog :)
  21. Piyush - Admin @ Best How To Blogger September 14, 2010 at 9:28 PM
    @Sally, can you give me admin rights of your blog?, i will check about your issue. See this post for how you can give me admin rights: http://besthowtoblogger.blogspot.com/p/help-desk-for-bloggers-ask-questions.html
  22. Piyush - Admin @ Best How To Blogger September 14, 2010 at 9:52 PM
    @Sally, i have accepted it :) Give admin privileges now please.
  23. MXL September 15, 2010 at 7:14 PM
    Hello. I have two problems with my blog:

    1. The logo on the upper-lefthand corner of my blog is doubled and I can't figure out why or how to fix it.

    2. I just added the "Popular Posts" gadget but cannot figure out how to remove the snippet and change the number of posts to 5.

    My blog is located at addictivediction.blogspot.com, and I have already invited you to have admin rights. Can you help me?

    P.S. I left two comments on the "How to Install Popular Posts Gadget" page but have since solved that issue. I should've tried everything before asking. Please forgive my impatience.

    Thanks for you expertise!
  24. Piyush - Admin @ Best How To Blogger September 15, 2010 at 9:43 PM
    @MXL, I have accepted it now as i have suggested above please give me admin rights, so that i can edit the gadget. You can chat with me directly using the chat with me section i have set here on my blogs right sidebar.
  25. MXL September 16, 2010 at 1:58 AM
    Hey, Piyush. I've given you the admin rights but seem to have caught you offline so chatting is not an option right now.

    Thanks again for your help. You're the man.
  26. MXL September 16, 2010 at 6:58 PM
    Yo, thanks SO much for the help! I was driving myself CRAZY tryin' to figure out how to fix the logo issue, then you come in fix it in no time. You, my friend, are a genius.

    One question, though: I only wanted the snippets removed from the Popular Posts gadget, not the thumbnails -- is there a way to get the thumbs back? I really liked them...

    And to anybody who's skeptical about giving Piyush access to your page, don't be. He's the real deal!!
  27. Piyush - Admin @ Best How To Blogger September 16, 2010 at 9:38 PM
    @MXL I have completed the changes and i also have prepared the post for you (http://besthowtoblogger.blogspot.com/2010/09/how-to-remove-snippet-and-thumbnail.html) , might be useful for someone who have same issue with the popular posts gadget as you have.

  31. Piyush - Admin @ Blogger How To Tips October 18, 2010 at 11:15 PM
    @Annamalai, you can create an header image or logo then you can put that logo image in your header area using Design > Page Element section. Just browse for your created logo and tick the put logo instead of title and description check box and done.

  36. Geek Planet December 8, 2010 at 3:14 PM
    Hi Piyush! Geek Planet is here once again because I liked all your tutorials and they helped me a lot. But one thing is that I am not able to make my blog appear in google search engine when I search for a term such as HOW TO UPLOAD YOUTUBE VIDEOS (but it appears when I type the domain --> http://www.geekplanet.co.cc). Can you explain why is it so and how to solve it.

    What I will do is that I will add you as an author on my blog and all you have to do is to do your SEO Settings because I am not good with it. OK.

    Thumbs up and five * rating for your blog @ geekblogger.org
  37. Piyush - Admin @ Blogger How To Tips December 8, 2010 at 10:49 PM
    @GMMM, Geek Planet: I think till date you only have 26 posts, and in the seo era content is the king for google. On page seo can help but no process in seo field will give you 100% satisfactory result. SEO is should be done on daily basis, its not a one time process.
  38. Geek Planet December 8, 2010 at 11:28 PM
    So, give me something to try out because I'm not good at all with SEO! Thnx in advance!
  39. Piyush - Admin @ Blogger How To Tips December 9, 2010 at 7:37 AM
    Well in that case you should start from here - http://www.geekblogger.org/search/label/SEO - ask me if you have any doubt.
  40. Rina January 15, 2011 at 8:51 AM
    Hi Piyush,
    I need your help so much.
    I have several tabs (which I created as additional pages) but I would like to add several posts in each tabs as how I did in my Home page.

    Can you tell me if this is possible?
  41. Piyush - Admin @ Blogger How To Tips January 15, 2011 at 7:29 PM
    @Rina, Please share your blog address first...
  42. les deux January 26, 2011 at 8:16 AM
    Hi Piyush,

    My blog currently features a hack for our "Recent Posts" section (bottom of the page). However, the thumbnails shown in it are often stretched. We're looking for a way to either fix thumbnails in the current widget so that they appear proportional to their image of origin, or for a new hack that will allow a large amount of horizontal recent posts at once.

    Jax, Les Deux

    Hi Piyush,
    I think I have a really easy thing that I want to do...but after messing with the HTML for 6 hours, i've realized I'm just not getting something or my template won't allow it.

    www.runtothefinish.com - blogger

    I have a three column layout. I want to have a sidebar item that spans the two left columns, but can't seem to make it happen.

    Please HELP!!! :) Thanks.
  45. Piyush - Admin @ Blogger How To Tips March 26, 2011 at 7:43 AM
    @Amanda, i have visited your blog and found that your template is designed like that only, so as you are saying you want to add something which can span(merge space) the space of that both right sidebar. so i think you have to do some design modification. Can you be more specific about what exactly you want to add in your right sidebar ?
  46. Coty Farquhar July 4, 2012 at 11:49 AM
