  1. thanks brother

    one request ...

    how to archives page in blogger .....

    please tell me

  2. You're most welcome, Stalin.
    Check out the tutorial at

  3. I'm wondering how to make my embedded video look mobile friendly. In mobile it is very small, with small buttons, and, is clunky, does not work like it should. When you turn the phone, does not render full screen,when you turn the phone back up right, the video does not change.

    I would like it to look like youtube's video looks, and works. Like when you turn the phone on it's side it would be nice for it to full screen automatically. Is blogger not right or me. Everything else is great, just not video.

  4. Thanks for this tip. A lot of my traffic comes from mobile users. Is there anyway i can make adsense to show on mobile?
    Any help will be appreciated.

  5. You're most welcome, Legendkid. I just learned that Mobile Adsense ads will only be displayed at the top of the post pages and at the bottom of the index page, provided you have at least one of your ads installed using the Adsense gadget or inline blog ads. Learn more about it at
    Hope this helps.
