Nakshatra Template

Many of my blog readers requested to publish the theme that I'm currently using in this blog or at least to announce its name. Although it is inspired from the ocean of templates over the internet, it is completely self-designed. The core of this theme was designed back in 2014; and from then it is consistently modified. For personal purpose, codes related to syntax highlighting, social content locking etc. are used in this theme, which are obviously unnecessary for any ordinary blog; even some snippets of this theme are hard-coded. So when I got the request, it took me some time to remove all unnecessary contents and make the entire theme dynamic. When it became finally ready to produce, it was again a period of hesitation for naming. Finally after some struggle, I came up with Nakshatra (means Star). This theme is rich in feature, fast in loading and awesome in appearance.

As the name specifies, a recent posts widget displays the most up-to-date content of your blog.

Benefit of having such widget is it helps blog readers to find the latest post with minimum efforts. As well as it makes blog visitors to browse further from the landing page without leaving your blog, i.e. reduces blog bounce rate. Additionally one doesn't have to send an email every-time a post has been created, i.e. reduces dependency on email marketing. Unfortunately, blogger team does not provide such feature as pre-build widget; so one has to add this via some third party coding.

Do you think that people read your content, but in spite of sharing or liking your content, they just read and leave? Do you have a feeling that they completely ignore whether your website has traffic or not. Well, in that case you have to drive your readers to like or share your page in order to discover your content.

Blogger Navigation with Post Title

In my blog I've discussed how to customize blogger newer-post and older-post navigation. Today I'll show you how to display post titles with these navigation links. It actually looks good to display blog post titles instead of showing just page navigation buttons.The basic concept behind this trick is simple. We'll use jQuery .get() function to display titles with these links. jQuery introduced this function to load data from the server using a HTTP GET request. Since blogger does not have proper data tag that can load title of previous page or next page, we'll use this jQuery function to load data from the server. I'ill also show you some stylish appearance of post titles with these navigations. However if you know a little bit of css, you can easily customize your blogger appearance.

Breadcrumb Navigation

Breadcrumb navigation (as well recognized as 'Breadcrumb trail') is a navigation widget that lets users to know their position in the hierarchy of a website and to retrace their steps to fail back to beginning with less time and elbow grease. It can be seen in many websites horizontally just above the post title (or maybe below header), and contains links to categories that related to the posts, the reader is currently on. It is an alternative method of navigation which in fact increases the usability of a website. Often a slash ( / ), a single right angle quote ( › ) or even a double right angle quote ( » ) is used as separator in breadcrumb hierarchy.
