Dynamic Views are the new ways to display blog. It is built with the latest in web technology (AJAX, HTML5 and CSS3), Dynamic Views is a unique browsing experience that will impress your readers to explore your blog in new ways. It loads 40 percent faster than the traditional templates and refreshes older entries by bringing them to the surface. Its interactive layouts make it easier for readers to enjoy and discover your posts.
Dynamic views provide much more than just new templates. With just a couple of clicks, you’ll get infinite scrolling (say goodbye to the “Older posts” link), integrated search, label and author, sorting by date, images that load as you browse, lightbox-style posts for easy viewing, keyboard shortcuts for quickly flipping through posts, and one-click sharing to Google+ and other social sites on every post.
Blogs are always in a different view that displays text and photos differently. So for those blogs it has Flipcard or snapshots for blogs having lots of photos. Classic, Sidebar or Timeslide are used for blogs having more text. Here’s a quick description of each of the new views, along with links to some of our favorite blogs where you can check each of them out in action.
- 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.

- Mosaic (Crosby’s Kitchen) – A mosaic mix of different sized images and text.

- Timeslide (The Bleary-Eyed Father) – A horizontal view of your posts by time period
Adding a Dynamic View to your blog is as easy as changing your template. You just need to log in to Blogger, click on the template tab on your dashboard, and select whichever view you want to set as your default. However, readers are still able to navigate your blog in a different view by selecting from the pulldown in the upper left of the screen. You can easily add your own touch to blog; you can upload a header image and customize the background colors.
