Dynamic Views in Blogger News

At the end of March, Blogger has introduced something they never offered before, something entirely new, entirely cool, and undoubtedly – promising. What I am talking about? Dynamic Views.

This new feature allows unthinkable earlier ability to present your content in several new and exciting ways. Google has introduced 5 new dynamic templates in Blogger. Now, you can view any Blogger blog as a Flipcard, Mosaic, Sidebar, Snapshot and Timeslide. No need for any additional changes for your existing template, which is just an extra way to see what you have already. Dynamic views are different versions of your blog, in some way, different ways to navigate your blog, without changing your template, using Ajax, CSS 3 and HTML 5.

What is all About?

Who can use Dynamic View?

These dynamic views will work on your blog if all of the following are true:
·         Your blog is public. Your readers don’t need to sign in to view your blog.
·         Your blog has feeds fully enabled. In the Settings | Site feed tab, you have enabled either Full or Jump Break for your Post Feed.
·         You have not disabled dynamic views. In the Setting | Formatting tab, the option for Enable Dynamic Views is set to Yes.

How to use Dynamic Views?

To try these views on your own blog, simply add “/view” to the end of the blog URL—for example, http://depressivedisorder.blogspot.com/view

Here are several screenshots in different templates:
