Blogger is one of the most popular free blogging service providers out there. Yet again another free service from the kitty of Google. Blogger is a reasonably user friendly blogging platform except for its theming capabilities. If you don't customize anything you can configure most of the stuff through the blogger admin interface but if you did something then you will have to do everything subsequently as well. A very simple task like showing the comment form below the posts requires you to fiddle with the template xml file, if you are already using a customized template.
We are happy to announce the release of yet another Drupal module. This time it is the "Comment Subscribe" module that will allow anonymous as well as registered users on a drupal site to subscribe to replies to their comments. The module will send notifications to the subscribed users about the replies to their comments or replies to their comment's children.
Blogger/Blogspot is one of the most popular destinations for bloggers both new and experienced. When you sign up for a blogger account or use your existing Google account to create a blog you will get a blog with a URL like yourblogname.blogspot.com. This is a good way to start your first blog. However as you climb the ladders of popularity in blogosphere you will want to have your own domain name like www.yourblogname.com instead of the one above. Blogspot allows for this easily through their blog management interface.
Similar to the StumbleThis module that we had created earlier we have created another bookmarking module for Drupal - SlashdotIt module. Unlike the other social bookmarking sites Slashdot is very selective in terms of the articles that get approved from the submission queue also known as the Slashdot firehose. Use this module on your site only if you are sure that you have slashdot worthy content.
We have added a few new modules to our site recently. Two of these are the StumbleThis module and the DiggThis module. Drupal already had a DiggThis module available for download but there was no StumbleThis module. StumbleUpon has been a popular source of traffic for zyxware.com and we wanted users to have an option to add any of our pages to their StumbleUpon favorites. So we created our own StumbleUpon module.
Blogger/Blogspot allows its users to edit the complete layout of the blog page through its 'edit template' feature. This gives the blogger full control over the layout of their pages and gives the kind of flexibility that you can get from any custom systems. The default blogger templates do not give links for social bookmarking from the blog pages. In this article we explain how to add social bookmarking links and buttons in your blogspot/blogger blog.
