How to to include FORUM on Blogger Blogs

Tutorial by Ralph Buttigieg

Many people would like to include forums on their blog. Wordpress has several plugins available but its commonly believed that bulletin board type discussions forums can not be integrated into a blogger blog. This is incorrect.

Blogger likes widgets and there are several widget based forums available like Nabble and Bravenet. What is required is to create a space on your blog for the widget to run.

Here's how to do that:

1. Create a static page using Greenlava's instructions:


The hack on the Blogger Sentral website is by far the best Pages hack for blogger. It hides the sidebars and creates a large post box to drop a widget into.

2. Go to a widget based forum site ( I used www.nabble.com) and setup your forums. Copy the embedded code.

3. Go to Blogger and start a new post. Past code into the HTML box. Then add the static label to convert the post into a page and save.

4. View to make sure it works OK , then link to the page from your home page. Its done! See my website for an example:


If you have any question feel free to post a comment.

How to stop visitors from stealing your blog content

Below is a little trick that will stop your visitors from copying and pasting your blog information. Anyone with experience may know a way around this trick. However it will make it hard enough to discourage them and get them moving on to easier targets.

What to do?

Log in blogger / Dashboard > Layout > Add Gadget > HTML/JavaScript > copy the code below and past in in HTML/JavaScript text box area

<div class="codeview">
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--  &nbsp; 
//Disable right mouse click Script 
//By Maximus (maximus@nsimail.com) w/ mods by DynamicDrive 
//For full source code, visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com  &nbsp; 
var message="Function Disabled!";  &nbsp; 

function clickIE4(){ 
if (event.button==2){ 
return false; 

}  &nbsp; 
function clickNS4(e){ 
if (document.layers||document.getElementById&amp;&amp;!document.all){ 
if (e.which==2||e.which==3){  alert(message);  return false; 

}  &nbsp; 
if (document.layers){ 

else if (document.all&amp;&amp;!document.getElementById){ 
}  &nbsp; 
document.oncontextmenu=new Function("alert(message);return false")  &nbsp; 
// -->  

When someone will try to do right click a message will appear “Function disabled” , you can change this message too if you wish.

Using Title Tags to Improve SEO

Until now, the Title Tags generated for each page of your Blogger blog would display the blog title first, then the name of your post. This wasn't so good for SEO (search engine optimization) as this made keywords from your post titles appear after your blog title.

So if you want to improve SEO that is important for your blog, follow step below.

1. Go to Layout > edit HTML in your Blogger dashboard.

2. Search for this tag:

3. Replace(means remove code above and place code below) this tag with the following:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;index&quot;'>

4. Save your template.

This work only in XML blogger templates. Also is and a hack for classic bloggers, but as I know noone use classic blogger anymore.
