Popular Kinds Of Blogs

Hello Folks, long time since i last posted an article on my website.Today our Guest Author Jamie Dole Green has taken some of her precious time to write for us. See how to become an Guest Author in My Blogging Techniques.

It's a whole NEW YEAR and probably by now, you may be well aware of the trends that are all the rage right now. Mostly, the trends of the Internet. Yeah, Social Media is still reigning king. And speaking of which, you may have probably heard of this type of social media called "BLOGS". It's basically like an On-line Journal.It's like your own personal notebook in the world wide web. Write anything you like. Put anything you like. But the differences is, A bunch of people called "Followers" are gonna read it. There are different kinds of blogs though. Everyone caters to different interests. Here are some of the blogs that you can do to finally convince you to make a blogging account.

Food Blogs

Yes, a food blog. EVERYONE EATS right? All of us love food that's why if you decide to make a food blog, there's already a sure audience for it. Be it a food blog that reviews Restaurants or some other food place that we have not even heard of, or simply a blog that gives surefire delicious but easy to prepare recipes. Or just fill it up with pictures of food. It's all the rage right now.

Fashion Blogs

Walk, Walk, Fashion Baby. Work it! Yeah, a fashion blog where you could put in what did you wear today. Or as the we call it, "Outfit of the day". Fashion blogs such as Fashionika showcases normal people who are dressed in style. Give inspiration to readers on their way of dressing up. You could also give in style tips for the fashionably challenged. Or how you can turn your old clothes into a whole new outfit. Be your very own fashion curator.It's awesome that it brings out the inner couture in you. The Internet is your runway.

Sports Blogs

Tired of reading the usual sports article on ESPN or even at Yahoo! Sports? The guys from Bleacher Report felt the same thing and started their own shebang. It made sports commentary more accessible to the fans. Well, forget about them right? You're going to create your own sports blog too. With blackjacks! and more Machismo! Give in your own opinion why Peyton Manning is greater than Tom Brady. Find the sport that you like and just talk about it! Talk about stats, talk about how that referee screwed your favorite team with that dumb call. Talk about trades ands why this team is more awesome than this team. You may be the next Skip Bayless for all we know.

Sneaker Blogs

The sneaker scene is getting bigger and bigger than it separated itself from "Fashion Blogs". Sneakers are a booming subculture. Everyone wants a pair of those Jordans or the latest LeBrons.Blogs like Sole Collector by NightWing Write talk about release dates and reviews sneakers. The next thing you know, Nike and adidas are sending them samples of their product just to be reviewed. You know what? You could do that too!


"Art" Blogs

When I say an art blog, I just don't mean paintings and drawings, I meant the whole nine yards of it. Music, Painting, Photography. All those kinds of art can be put in here. Post it, appreciate it. Write an essay about it. Interpret the emotional aspect of this piece of painting to your readers. Why Picasso used this specific shade of blue because he's feeling "blue" (Get it?! Get it?!). Post Pulitzer Prize winning photographs.

These are just some of the kinds of blogs that you could write about. And as usual, there are still a lot that you can even think of. Like we have said before, different blogs, different tastes. It's all about what ruffles your feathers or what makes you kick and inspire. One final note though, at the end of the day, don't blog for your followers, blog for yourself. The World Wide Web is yours.

New Features in Microsoft Windows 8.1

If you are a hard follower of technology, then you’ll already know that the Windows 8.1 will be made available to public on 18th of October 2013. If you have got the RTM version already, then you are awesome! I’m not going to tell you how to get it now, we will just talk about the new features that Microsoft added in this major update to its Windows 8 operating system.
windows-8-1-new-features
Microsoft Windows 8 OS was received with huge negative reviews all thanks to its Modern UI that alienated users from its older versions. I never had a complaint about Windows 8 and I’m still in love with it thanks to all the new updates it has brought from Windows 7 and older. Of course, getting used to a start-button-less desktop took time, but then again, it wasn’t such a big deal for me.
Coming to the Windows 8.1 release now, it is a major update because Microsoft has taken all these negative reviews and has addressed majority of the issues mentioned by sad people all around the world. Let’s dig deep.
 

What’s New in Microsoft Windows 8.1

Start Button makes a come back!
That’s right. This was one of the major issues people had with Windows 8. They just couldn’t get things right without a start button so Microsoft decided to get it back to where it was. But the functioning of start button isn’t as it was before. Clicking on the start button in Windows 8.1 will take you to Modern UI, something which you did in Windows 8 by hovering your mouse at the bottom left. So, I don’t really know how it makes sense. But what does make sense is that on right clicking the start button you get lots of options along with shut down.
 

Boot to Desktop

This is another big problem that people complained about. They wanted to boot directly to desktop, saving time clicking on that desktop icon on the Modern UI. Windows 8.1 has made the option to boot directly to desktop available.
 

More Help Everywhere

Microsoft has even brought a lot more help at hand for people to get themselves comfortable with the new interface and actions. These straight-forward tutorials provide help and tips on how to control your machine properly.
 

More Apps at Once

In Windows 8 you were able to snap open only two apps together with a 75/25 split screen. With Windows 8.1, you can now snap 3 apps together with dynamic sizing option.

Windows 8.1 supports 3D printing capabilities too.

Apart from these, there are more options in the settings menu, new hidden features, enhanced lock screen, new wallpapers, updated default apps and lots more in the back-end. And yeah, the good old “Computer” or “My Computer” has been renamed to “This PC“.











What is PageRank/Google Page Rank ?

What is PageRank or Google PageRank?


PageRank is a link analysis algorithm. It is used by the Google search engine to rank the pages on World Wide Web. Google search engine assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of pages, such as the WWW, with the purpose of measuring its relative importance within the set. The term or word "PageRank" is a trademark of Google.


Who developed PageRank?


PageRank was developed as part of a research project by Larry Page at Standford University and Sergey Brin about a new kind of search engine. Sergey had the thought that information on the World Wide Web could be ordered in a hierarchy by "link popularity".

PageRank

What is link popularity?


A page is said to have link popularity if it has more number of links to it.
Google describes PageRank:

Pages that we believe are important pages receive a higher PageRank and are more likely to appear at the top of the search results.

It plays an important role in search engine optimization. The Google search engine and PageRank algorithm are the trademarks of Google Inc. Google page ranking algorithm provides page ranks for the  pages which contains more number of links to it . Its values range from 0 to 10 points. The  least have a  pagerank value of 0 from 10 possible points but the most page rank value is 10 from 10 possible points then the page is said to be more popular.


For Example: Most popular websites have a PageRank of 10 from 10 possible point like www.google.com, etc.
That's all to say about page rank.

What is Ubuntu ? – A Brief History

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,,

Ubuntu is a Linux-based operating system with its origins in South Africa. Its name means “humanity towards others”. Back in 2004, Linux was already established as a server operating system, but free software ubuntu brief historywas not yet a part of everyday life. Further, Linux was thought of as a complicated operating system which non-technical people couldn’t use. It was at this time in 2004 that Ubuntu began as a Linux distribution aimed at ease of use. Mark Shuttle worth, the creator of the project, gathered a few developers and went on to create the most popular Linux distribution till date.

 

An introduction to the Ubuntu project


The Ubuntu project is aimed at creating one of the easiest operating systems on the planet using Linux as its base. Ubuntu releases a new version every six months; the latest at the time of writing being 11.04. The next anticipated edition, 11.10, will be out in October 2011. We hope you’ve already understood the subsequent pattern of version numbers: 9.10, 10.04, 10.10, 11.04 and so on. Ubuntu places alongside these numbers names of animals to infuse life into each release. The 11.04 version is named as ‘Natty Narwhal’ (a medium-sized toothed whale).
Yet another unique fact about Ubuntu is that its owners (or you could just call them the creators) at the parent company Canonical have pledged to always keep the OS free. On the other hand are companies who built over and around their open source products, especially Linux distributions such as Novell and Red Hat. They usually treat the free versions of their Linux distributions as a testing ground for commercial products. Canonical promises that Ubuntu is, and always will be, free of cost and open in nature. As far as its bank accounts are concerned, the OS is a volunteer- driven project and the company capitalizes on its Ubuntu-related support and development services to enterprises. The commitment of Canonical and Mark Shuttle worth are to be credited for the ever-growing fame of Ubuntu.

Why is Ubuntu popular ?


For those who’re interested in computing, Linux is something which they
take pride in being a user of, and love its freedom and flexibility.
Among all the Linux distributions, which already are extremely popular (use Google’s free keyword tool to avail salvation for yourself), Ubuntu is the most popular. The reason for its triumph over all other Linux distributions is its ease of use. Before Ubuntu came into picture, Linux was thought of as a real tough nut to crack. Many had the (wrong) notion about Linux being a completely command line based operating system. While it is still true that an extremely rich set of useful applications, programs and features of Linux are dependent on command line (or call it the console), Linux certainly was much more than just a console-driven, type and press Enter styled operating system, even before Ubuntu was born. The one thing it lacked was the real ease of use offered by other operating systems such as Windows and Mac.
Ubuntu changed the scene with its innovative solutions to issues. It ensured that users could download new software easily. The OS was further popularized by the fact that it allowed you to use the system right from the CD and install it only once you felt pleased enough. The installer was simple and the looks were different and beautiful.
Ubuntu software updates were fuss-free even for the regular user to understand. One of its most innovative technical aspects was its self upgrade feature. You didn’t need to download a separate ISO file, burn it to a disk and then install or update from it. All you had to do was upgrade from within the OS. The required files would automatically be downloaded and installed. Version changed! Slowly, many other innovations came in: a music store (just like Apple), a software center, integration of music players and social service into gnome shell and what not. It’s these little changes over time that increasingly increased the interest of new as well as already interested users.
The cherry on the topping was the awesome ‘no drivers required’ approach. Ubuntu made it easy for users to plug in their mobile phones, select their country, fill in a few details and get ready with a GPRS connection. This was, and still is, a huge boost for people (mostly students) who live in places where they can’t afford to have wired connections or costly wireless plans.
For some users, the last mentioned feature (built-in drivers) is most important. Although you won’t find Pentium 4 processors in the market anymore, some still use such machines just because it does all they want it to do. These users don’t upgrade either due to monetary problems or because they’re simply happy with the PC which taught them what a computer is. The bigger problem with owners of ‘boxes’ such as these is more on the side of support than features. If you lost the only copy of the driver CD of the motherboard for a P4 computer today, you will be forced to buy a new system.

The reason is lack of support from the manufacturer. In all probabilities, manufacturers would have stopped supporting the device. So you wouldn’t get the drivers on their web site, with little luck getting it elsewhere either. Since the Linux kernel has a huge database of drivers, Ubuntu gives you reason to rejoice. It brings life back to such old PCs. While system requirements of most other new operating systems for running are high, Ubuntu doesn’t need much to get great performance from older machines. While 512 MB RAM might seem a little less for Windows 7 or Windows Vista, Ubuntu can not only be used on such systems but can also perform pretty decently. In case that description suggests even in the slightest of ways that Ubuntu (or any other Linux distribution) is meant to run on slow devices, you might be enlightened to know that most supercomputers in the world today use Linux as their operating system. All these facts and features make Ubuntu more popular than any other Linux distribution.

Why did Virtual Reality Never Make it Big?

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,,
Hello folks, long time since last post. Today our Guest Author Robert from Jagaur PC has took some of his precious time to write articles on our site. See How To Become a guest author on My Blogging Techniques.
Think back to the middle and latter half of the 1990s.  Bill Clinton was lurching from one White House scandal to another, Nelson Mandela was bringing global attention to South Africa with his presidency, and the England Cricket Team couldn’t win to save their lives. Virtual reality (VR) headsets were also touted as being the next big thing.
We’re not just talking about VR computer games, either; analysts – serious people who knew what they were talking about, not just anyone – widely predicted that we’d soon be living our lives through VR. Today, the only place we’re likely to find anything to do with VR is if we head to the amusement arcades at the nearest beach, or go to YouTube and find old episodes of VR Troopers. Yes, that cartoon actually happened; it wasn’t a dream.

Where did the VR dream go wrong?


We Have Eyes

If it sounds a simple answer, that’s because it is. After years of development, and who knows how many millions of dollars being committed to VR, people suddenly realized that we don’t actually need it.
The growth and popularity of the internet around this time probably had something to do with VR’s failure to ignite, too. Why sit with a ridiculous headset on for hours at a time when you can sit in front of a screen and do everything electronically?
Today, we have to watch shows such as American Inventor to laugh at things that solve a problem that doesn’t exist. Look back 15 years, and you find one that people actually thought would be big.

The Cost

VR equipment was ridiculously expensive. Perhaps the biggest proof of this is that the VR equipment that is available today is still retailing at extortionate prices; surely, there cannot be anyone buying this stuff?
Some people who likes VR back in the 90s were hanging on for the price to drop, like it inevitably does six months after a games console launch. Due to the cost associated with development and the need for companies selling VR to make a decent margin, the price never fell.

No Big Name Involvement

You can argue VR failed because no big companies got involved with it, but not getting involved was probably the smartest thing these companies ever did. We’ll never know for sure, but you have to think that some developers at least picked up the phone to Bill Gates, when at the time Microsoft were the company that everyone wanted to replicate or be involved with.
Even the companies that did try something different ended up with terrible products. Who remembers the Sony Glasstron?

No Applications

VR was the next big thing, but no one actually bothered to seriously develop anything outside of games; and even they looked like half-baked efforts to merely pay lip service to the ‘emergence’ of VR.
We were going to work with VR headsets, operations would be performed using VR, and we’d all have to have one to live in the modern world. In fairness, VR does play a small role in car manufacturing today, but then the industry would do perfectly well without it, and our cars wouldn’t fall apart as soon as we turn the ignition.

Is there Hope?

As much as we’re calling VR a spectacular failure, we should remember that 3D technology was a huge non-starter around the same time, and is hugely popular today. That said, it would appear that for VR, the time for it to be even half-relevant has already gone.

What is Hacking ? - Explained

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,
Hacking is often portrayed to be many things it is not. Thanks to the popular portrayal of hackers as young immoral computer experts associated with nearly any possible illegal and immoral activity that can be conducted through a computer, we see hackers are outlaws of cyberspace, out to steal passwords, or get access to your bank account and steal money. They are portrayed as the equivalent to thieves who break into houses or rob banks – or in the mildest case, peeping toms trying to get a look into your private life. This could not be farther from the truth. Sure, the act of remotely accessing someone’s computer to steal their private files would be hacking. Note the words “steal their private files”, what if that condition was removed? Or what if you are simply accessing your own computer or that of a friend’s to help him / her out?
Much like the driver of a car would be called a driver, whether it is done by someone with the car owner’s permission, by the car owner himself  herself or without the car owner’s permission. Driving is driving regardless of the ethics; the context is irrelevant. Similarly a person is a hacker whether they are bypassing their own computer’s security to access their own files, or doing it on someone else’s computer without the permission of the owner.
hacking
A person withdrawing money from an ATM using their card is okay; a person withdrawing money from an ATM using someone else’s card without their permission is a thief. A person hacking into a computer to test its security is a hacker who is a security expert, a person hacking into a computer to steal passwords is a criminal. Here the context decides the legality and ethics of the act, and the person is accordingly labelled a “security expert” or “criminal”, but he is a hacker nonetheless.
Hacking is an expression of our own curiosity, “how does it work?”, “why can’t I access it?”, “what happens if I give it 400 volts instead of 220?" It is simply the result of our drive to understand the things around us. Often people are curious about things which may cause them or others harm, such as a child curious about an electricity socket, or an teen curious about  drugs. This is no reason to discourage curiosity, the answer, as always, lies in education not restriction. Many of the greatest minds have simply been unsatisfied by the reality they see around them, and looked for ways to “hack” things to work in ways they want. Without their curiosity, and “hacking” skills, where would we have been?
A computer hacker is one who is curious about the working of computers and software. While many people are happy treating their computer like a black box, where they merely feed in data and get data in return, others strive to break in and understand how it works, and why it works that way. Often, instead of simply accepting things the way they are, they will look for ways to make things work the way they want. While this may be considered juvenile, hacking into someone’s computer, just to see if you can, doesn’t cause anyone any harm as long as you are responsible enough to respect their privacy.
Don’t like the way Windows names shortcuts, hack the registry and change the way it works. Windows may not provide the facility to do this, but that is no reason for us to be limited to the way it works.
In the end, why should there be any kind of artificial limitation to what you can do with your computer? By artificial restriction we mean to say that no amount of hacking is going to make your computer do your laundry! However nothing should stop you from using your computer to its best capacity, as long as it does no one else any harm. Most hackers are not out to steal money from banks, or crack passwords to sell them, they are there for the thrill of the ride. They will try to hack a system just to see if they can, much like picking their neighbours lock, only to lock it back again – perhaps leave a note telling them they should get a better lock.
Hacking constitutes a mind-set, not a skillset. It’s not a “job” it’s not something you do for a living. You may earn because of your skills as a hacker, but the hacker mind-set is what makes a hacker. Like with anything else, you don’t start at the top, you are willing to learn and you poke at things to see where they go; patience is important because it is unlikely you will get what you want in your first try, or your tenth.
To start with, one might simply change the obscure settings accessible to them from Windows, moving further they may install third-party applications which have common hacks for Windows. Then one might go further and change the registry themselves to experiment. The road doesn’t need to end here you can start modifying the actual Windows binaries.
Note we say Windows a lot, what about Linux? Fact is, Linux is much easier to hack than Windows. Shock! Horror! Yes, we said Linux is easier to hack than Windows, but it is also considered more secure. When you look at hacking from the larger-sense perspective of messing with a system out of curiosity, Linux allows you to do more. Linux is intentionally hack-able, allowing each and every parameter to be changed by the user. You can create unique combinations of application sets and features that the distribution creators never envisioned. With Linux you have access to nearly all the source code of the system, how much more hack-friendly could it be! With Windows on the other hand, one would need to use third-party tools, patch binaries change undocumented registry settings, and even then the level of customizability would be much less.
In fact, forget Windows and Linux nor now, hacking need not even involve a computer. While hacking is now predominantly associated with computers, hacking hardware is not uncommon. There are many hardware hacking enthusiasts who using some knowledge of electronics and some of software programming are able to bend their devices to their will.
While you can go all the way up to controlling your toaster over the internet, a simple example of a hardware hack anyone can do is to add a potentiometer to your headphones. A potentiometer is an electrical device which lets you control the voltage across a across it. It is a simple way of varying the voltage of a battery (or other power source) from nearly zero to all the way up to the maximum voltage the battery provides. By adding one to your headphones you can control the power of the signal going to the speakers, thereby giving them rudimentary volume control capability. Don’t do this with expensive head / ear phones though as you will likely end up deteriorating the quality.

In this book we primarily deal with hacking with reference to computers and information. No single book can employ the broadest possible definition of hacking. After you are done with this book, you will have a better idea of what constitutes hacking on computers. After you are done with this book, you will probably not be able to hack in to others’ computers, there are seldom good reasons for doing so, and this book is not for that. This book is  meant to fuel a curious mind, and expose it to the world of hack able objects. Before we can begin though we need to address the very subject of this book, ethical hacking.

Blogger or Wordpress : Which to Choose?

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,,
Well, to be really honest, Blogger vs Wordpress is a never ending debate since the pros and cons of both the blogging platforms, when weighed together, are almost equal. So today we shall list them out in simple way so that you can decide which to choose for your blogging career.Blogger-VS-WordPress
As you know, blogger and wordpress are content management systems, the former from internet giant Google and the latter is open-source community developed. However, they are basically used for blogging but there are lot of differences when we see the core, operations and functionality.

Pros of using Blogger Platform

  • Free for Lifetime!
  • No server downtime issues as blogs are hosted on Google Servers
  • Very Easy and User-Friendly
  • Easy Modification to design by knowing simple HTML and CSS
  • In-built Stats

Cons of Blogger Platform

  • Blog can be taken down by Google at any time!
  • Limited Scripts support (No PHP)
  • Limited Flexibility
  • No custom structure for permalink
  • Limited Search Engine Optimization
  • No support for platform independent sub-pages/sub-folders

Pros of using Wordpress Platform

  • Extremely Flexible and highly customizable
  • Powerful Search Engine Optimization Techniques
  • You own your content, no one can take it down
  • Support for most of the scripting languages (host dependent)
  • Custom permalink structure
  • Platform independent sub-folders and sub-pages can be created

Cons of Wordpress

  • Web Hosting Required! Not free.
  • Not very user friendly when compared to blogger
  • Customization requires programming knowledge
  • With hosting comes server downtime issues
  • Hacking possible in some rare cases
  • Hard to debug errors or add additional functionality

Well, these are not ALL. This is just a limited list which highlights the major issues and my no means limited to just these.

 

So Blogger or Wordpress?

What we suggest is, if you are just beginning in the blogging arena, then go with blogger and build your empire for a while. When the income is sufficient, migrate your blog to wordpress (it is an easy task).
If you are already a established blogger, then just close your eyes and go with Wordpress. Even though blogger is Google hosted, when we talk in the long run, Wordpress is far more better than blogger.

Disadvantages of enabling Google+ comments on Blogger‏

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,
The Google Plus comments integration with Blogger is turning to be interesting part of blogging since it is launched, and a lot of bloggers have gone ahead and implemented it on their blogger. This seems to be one of the biggest improvements in Blogger over the recent past. And at first glance, it looks pretty slick, with a clean and solid implementation. It makes things really easy, especially for bloggers who can track the conversation more easily.googlepluscomments At the same time, readers can contribute right from Google Plus, without needing to open the blog. However, upon closer inspection, it seems that the new implementation isn't without its flaws.
There are many disadvantages in this new commenting system, some main disadvantages of using this new commenting system are.
 

Disadvantages of using Google+ comments on blogger

  • To use this feature, users needs to use their Google account ID, which can be a bit of a problem for readers who are using alternatives. But the real problem lies in the fact that this commenting system is dependent upon the URL of your blog. If you change the URL, for example when you are migrating to another domain or re-branding, you will not be able to migrate these comments, and they will be deleted! Unlike Facebook Comment API, Google comments aren't stored on any app accounts. This means that migration is not an option, and that, you'll lost all your comments should any such thing happen.
  • Another big disadvantage is the increase in Page Load Speed. It takes some time before all the data is fetched from Google. Usually, this isn't noticeable, but try loading your blog on a slow dial-up connection, and you will see those comments appear much later.
    Some people have also reported that the comment statistics are no longer accurate (or sometimes visible).
This is the screenshot of New Google+’s commenting system on Blogger.

Who can use Ubuntu Operating System ?

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,
If you were to ask this question to the creators of Ubuntu, they would say ‘anyone’, and they wouldn’t be wrong. Ubuntu comes with almost all software which you would require as a normal computer user. We know demands differ, so let’s look at the valley from different mountains :
ubuntu 2

Home user

The term ‘home user’ would almost automatically ask your creative side to form an image of a person who enjoys using a computer for entertainment and a few not-so-important tasks. That would include music for passing the boring Sunday evening, a few movies to make yourself smile, email to keep you posted, web browsing to stay updated, a messaging client to chitchat with friends and probably a spread sheet to help keep expenses in limit. Ubuntu comes with all of this. It’s got ‘Banshee’ to play your music, the ‘totem’ video player to play the movies, ‘Evolution’ to manage your calendar, contacts and email, Firefox to browse the mighty online mess (although beautiful and organised, the web is a mess after all!), ‘Empathy’ for chatting with friends on Yahoo, Google Talk and others and ‘LibreOffice’ for your office needs. We believe that is what a home user would want from his / her computer. However, in case an Ubuntu aficionado wants more, installing software on this OS is a piece of cake (more about it later).

Office user

The typical office user fills data into spreadsheets, creating presentations to be shown to clients and/or typing in a leave letter. Despite the change in definition of offices or its users, almost all software manufacturers (including Microsoft) continue to consider “office applications” as a set of software used for creating documents, presentations, spreadsheets and small database applications. Ubuntu comes with an office suite named LibreOffice (Libre means open) which is similar to and compatible with the Microsoft Office range of applications. In addition to the document, spreadsheet, and presentation application, it also comprises two other programs named ‘Draw’ and ‘Math’ which can be used to create illustrative drawings and complex formulas for office purposes. Math is unique to LibreOffice because it is a full fledged formula editor. You couldn’t ask for more.

The New Blogger Template HTML Editor - What’s new ? – Part 2

I have splitted this post because this article is too lengthy and i don’t wanted you to get bored reading a long article.

Format Template

before-template-format

If you are like me , trying to squish every whitespace out of your template to hyper-optimize for the smallest HTTP request size , then this might not be a feature for you. Jokes apart as you can see in the above image it can be a nightmare to edit a Template like that. A click of Format Template will indent your code in the most human readable form as seen in the image below . Just a word of caution though , for heavily modified template this might cause some problems , so Preview before saving any changes.

after-template-format

5. Find , Replace and Replace All functions

The Editor has its own Find , Replace and Replace All functions. This might seem a little off in the beginning as the Browsers Own Search will not work in the Editor but once you get used to it , it will come naturally. Especially the addition of Replace (CTRL+SHIFT+F) and Replace All (CTRL+SHIFT+R) , a must in code editors, will come really handy if you fiddling with the template a lot ( Especially with multiple similar items ) .

6. Error Highlighting

Error-Highlighting

The new improvement also has error highlighting function that highlights those tags which are causing the errors. For example, you forgot to close the script tags properly and tried to preview the template so it would highlight the <script> tag to let realize you that you forgot to close the tags properly.
Unfortunately, “Expand the Widget” option is terminated but to replace this option a new feature known as Format Template is introduced that does exactly the same job as it. Therefore, be careful while you are reading any old tutorials in the internet that relates to your blog customization and can’t found “expand the widget” box then without any second thoughts select the “Format” button located in the HTML editor.

The New Blogger Template HTML Editor - What’s new ?

The first major update to the Blogger Template Editor since 2006 . Loosely referred to as Edit HTML , it has gone though a complete makeover. The previous Editor appeared as a light box-style window and was pretty similar to the version available before Blogger switched to the new look back in October 2011. This update is a full-blown overhaul with build from scratch approach bringing a whole new set of features to the table.
preview-new-editor
The New Template Editor is using CodeMirror , a JavaScript component which provides an in-browser Code Editor. It has been modified a bit to add some Blogger specific functionalities ( Preview Template & Jump To Widget ) but the core appears to be same. Shifting to Code Mirror , which is open source and has a active development community around it ( Check it on Github ) is surely nothing less than awesome. It is used by sites like CodePen , CodeSchool , CSSDeck , JSBin as well as Google Apps Script just confirms the fact that it is ready for big-time use.

The New Features

The New Editor is aimed at making Creation & Editing Blogger Template a lot easier for user with less experience in coding HTML/CSS/JS . Some of the specific additions are

Jump To Widget


jump-to-widget

Finding code related to a specific widget has become very easy , Just open the Jump To Widget Dropdown and select the widget of your choice. By making jumping to specific Widget Code block, it becomes easier for users to add code to render widget on specific page  (Earlier it was a bit overwhelming to go through a lot of code to add those conditional tags ).

Expandable Code Segments (Code folding)

collapse-code

The ability to expand code makes the Template Editor look less cluttered and more clean. Current once you expand the code , there is no ability to collapse it again . May be they will add that in the future. And also after expanding the code block ,the triangle disappears but if that specific area is clicked again then the code collapses and the triangle reappears.

Inline Preview Template

Preview Template

Giving a option to preview the template in the same window is well thought UX move , keeping the continuity of the Google UI and not at all compromising with the testing of the template. It will surely improve the workflow of many template designers.

There are few many features about this. That will be continued in our coming article so please keep reading and If you like this article then please subscribe to Our feeds and Like us on Facebook for Future Updates. Thank you.

What is Adobe Photoshop ??

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,

 

Existence Of Photoshop

John Knoll, who worked for Industrial Lightand Magic (ILM) at the time,envisioned the possibilities of computer-generated special effects, and decided to experiment with them himself, soliciting his brother Thomas help for his purposes. Together, they invested inan Apple Macintosh II—the first one that supported colour—and began building on an application John had started as a hobby : Display. One thing led to another, and as they added more and more features, Display became Photoshop 1.0, which was released in 1990 on a single floppy disk. While it was a big hit from the beginning itself.
Ps
The above image is the screenshot of the first Adobe Photoshop Floppy Disk which i got on the internet.

What does Photoshop Do ?

Photoshop fanatics will probably make convincing arguments about how Photoshop is so awesome it can even cure world hunger, but there’s probably still some time for that. What Photoshop is brilliant at is its original purpose—special effects. Using Photoshop, even the blandest image can be given a new lease on life. It doesn’t end there, though. With its extremely powerful image-editing tools, Photoshop can be used to correct eventhe most disastrous flaws in pictures—from red eyes in photographs to undesirable smears of colour. Image Ready, which comes bundled with Photoshop, offers a host of features you can use for Web graphics—creating animated GIFs, mouse roll-overs, and somevery aggressive compression tools that will ensure your images are the smallest possible size without compromising on their quality.
