Hiding Navbar from Blog

CSS being the only way then to hide NavBar, now Blogger has introduced a feature to have different Navbar themes/turning it off.

Therefore this article will help you through the latter as it is easy one.

  1. Go to Dashboard > Layouts
  2. Click Edit in the Navbar gadget
  3. Either choose the theme you wish or choose Off to turn Navbar Off.
  4. Save > Save arrangment
Now visit your blog for changes.

So, what is the advantage of having Navbar in a blog?

The navigation bar's Next blog >> link is made in a way that it shows random blog each time you click on the it. This helps others find your blog as well. The next blog you see will also have Navbar. So if you have Navbar, you're blog will be shown as some one else's next blog.


The simplest advantage of having this is to gain anonymous but useful readers to the blog.

Blogger HTTPS for custom domain and Cloudflare

In BHF, there was a recent issue related to cloudflare where the browser screams the site is a phishing site. So I thought of writing up how does a service like cloudflare affect your blogger blog.

What is Cloudflare?

Well we have that written all over Wikipedia. Let's go on with why Blogger users look for Cloudflare.
Anciently Blogger users used cloudflare for one simple reason. HTTPS for custom domains.
