Blogger in Draft has some new widgets which you may like to try out in your blog. Blogger In Draft (http://draft.blogger.com/) is a special version of Blogger where new features are tried out before releasing them to evryone.



You can add the widgets to your blog - they are fully functional - and experiment with them and give your feedback on them.........


LOGIN TO BLOGGER IN DRAFT


To add the widgets to your blog first login at Blogger In Draft : http://draft.blogger.com/. Click on Layout link on the Dashbard and then click Add Page Element link on The Page Elements subtab of Template tab. Proceed in the same method followed in Blogger to add Page elements to your blog.
In the popup window you will see the new widgets. See picture below :





FEED SUBSCRIPTION WIDGET


Most of the new blogger layout templates carry a "Subscribe to Posts Atom" link at the bottom of the Main Page. Many bloggers especially newcomers are mystified by this link and it's purpose. See : What is subscribe to Posts Atom?


The only solution was to add a prominent Feeds and email Subscribe icons at the top of the sidebar. Now Blogger is getting ready to roll out it's own Subscription Links Page Element. You can add it from Blogger In Draft and test it. With this your viewers can add one-click subscriptions to six popular feed readers: iGoogle, Google Reader, Bloglines, Netvibes, NewsGator, and My Yahoo!.


There is also a comment feed subscription option which offers per-post comments on the post page and whole blog comments on the Main Page.



GOOGLE GADGET PAGE ELEMENT


You can now add a Google Gadget from Blogger In Draft directly instead of going to the Gadgets home page. The Gadgets come from iGoogle Gadget directory which contains thousands of them for your selection. You can create your own Google Gadget and add it to the directory.



SEARCH BOX PAGE ELEMENT


Adding a search box to your blog has become easier with this widget which adds a Google Custom Search Engine to your blog. It can be customized to search your blog, the web or the links you have added to your blog or all three together.


Enjoy!

Hi there

Really using your site at the moment. I'm about to a major overhaul of my site (tardymusic.blogspot.com) and want to replace all my widget titles (such as the Labels widget) with gifs of handwritten images, so it looks a little more lo-fi. But how do I get to the html of individual widgets?

Thanks

Tardy
