Google Brings Dynamic Views to Its Free Blogging Tool Blogger


Google announced new layouts for their free blogging tool Blogger called Dynamic Views. These look amazing! The new themes are powered by AJAX, HTML5 and CSS3.

Dynamic views reportedly load 40% faster, as well as provide their blog readers with more enjoyment and discovery of their content. Some of the new features include infinite scrolling, keyboard shortcuts for quickly flipping through posts, lightbox-style posts for easy viewing and more.

Here’s a video look into the new themes.

Here’s a list of the descriptions and examples of the different theme choices via the Blogger Buzz blog:

  • Classic (Gmail): A modern twist on a traditional template, with infinite scrolling and images that load as you go
  • Flipcard (M loves M) – Your photos are tiled across the page and flip to reveal the post title
  • Magazine (Advanced Style) – A clean, elegant editorial style layout
  • Mosaic (Crosby’s Kitchen) – A mosaic mix of different sized images and text
  • Sidebar (Blogger Buzz Blog) – An email inbox-like view with a reading page for quick scrolling and browsing
  • Snapshot (Canelle et Vanille) – An interactive pinboard of your posts
  • Timeslide (The Bleary-Eyed Father) – A horizontal view of your posts by time period

      We wanted to make this technology available to our users as quickly as possible, and therefore limited the level of customization at launch. We will be releasing many enhancements to Dynamic Views over the coming weeks, including the ability to add gadgets, modify the templates, and ultimately create your own.

      Happy blogging.

    I would love to try Dynamic Views for my blog but Internet Explorer won’t let me!  The information bar at the top states that it is preventing cross site scripting.  I went to the help section and followed the directions leading me to Tools>Internet Options>Security>Custom> and enabled everything that was required per the instructions but the infomration bar still appears and and prevents me from using Dynamic Views.  Any idea how to fix this problem?

      What version are you using? Dynamic Views uses the latest web technology, and therefore requires the latest browsers. Alternatively you could try Chrome or Firefox.
