As a happy user of Google Reader, reading its blog, I have come across article telling that it is now possible to integrate shared feeds with BLOGSPOT
Expand your post summaries.
Another thing I wanted to do on my BLOG is to be able to get the posts to become expandable. This help article described, how to do it. But since I am using non-standard template, I needed to change code managing blog entry. Because the one suggested, did not work. Here is the changed code:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'><br />
<a expr:href='data:post.url'>Read more...</a>
Adding RSS icon
I have spent some time trying to add simple feed icon to the bottom of the BLOG. The BLOGSPOT help was great, but yet again suggestions did not help me - because of custom template in use. Firebug came to the rescue though. I was able to inspect the page to locate relevant DIV entry and then add the icon as required.
Other hints on BLOG setup.
