How to change Timestamp format in Blogger

You know, there are lots of blogger templates using Timestamp format for posted day instead of DateTime format. We must change the TimeStamp as their format otherwise the date won’t show up properly on each of your posts! Actually the date will most likely be blank and you’ll think the template is broken.

Login To Blogger Go To > Settings > Formatting.

At Formatting tab, change Timestamp Format to format like “Thursday, January 27,2011″.

Remember change the TIMESTAMP, not the DATE HEADER

Save your template and you are done.

How to limit the number of posts displayed in label pages

Some of you maybe are annoyed by 20 max result when you are click your own label or tag of Blogger, and it makes your page of the blog very long to the bottom.In blogger you can limit the number of posts appearing on the home page, but you cannot to do it on the label pages.

In this post I will show you how to limit the number of posts showing in label pages.

Login To Blogger Go To > Design > Edit HTML.
(Back up your template)
and mark the tick box "Expand Widget Templates"

Then, find (CTRL+F) this code in the template.
You may find more than one instance. Replace them with the following
expr:href='data:label.url + "?max-results=5"'

For Label Cloud users.
To change the number of posts displayed when readers click on an item in your label cloud, find this line in your template:
a.href = lcBlogURL+'/search/label/'+encodeURIComponent(t);
And replace it with this instead:
a.href = lcBlogURL+'/search/label/'+encodeURIComponent(t) +'?max-results=5';
The '5' in the code above means that a page will show 5 post per (on each) page. You may change to any ammount you want. But we recommend to make the ammount same as how many the first page of your Blog show the post. And lower is better.

Now save it and see the result.
