We’ve shown you guys lots of technical stuff for your blog.. how to right click disable, how to back up your template… etc etc. How about a tutorial on how to add some cute little hearts to your footer as well as some other footer customizations? Yes, please!
Okay! Head over to your dashboard.
In your blog dashboard, click on Layout > Blog Posts > Edit.
To add a little cute heart in front of your name, add this code right before or in place of “Posted by”:
But maybe you don’t want hearts in your footer.. that’s cool. Go HERE and check out a bunch of other options! Oh and these codes can be used in posts, post titles and sidebars!!
Did you know you can also change the word “comments” to say something else? You totally can! I changed comments to say “happy thoughts”.
You can also change the date format. Just click the drop-down arrow to view your options. There are soooooo many different options to choose from!
You can also add reaction buttons to your footer. This allows people to rate your posts. You can edit them to say anything as well. So instead of “funny, interesting and cool” you can say “good, better, best”. The possibilities are endless!
You can also add little social networking buttons to your footer & show/hide quick editing tools (these allow you to easily edit things on your design from the live view of your blog).
Lastly, you can totally rearrange the order of the information in your footer. Do you want labels to come first? Then click and drag the labels to before posted by.. or stick the date at the end. Put whatever, wherever you want!
See there are so many different fun things you can do to fancy up your footer. Have fun playing!! And email us at [email protected] if you have any questions!
