You shouldn't use br elements for separating paragraphs. From the HTML5 specification: br elements must be used only for line breaks that are actually part of the content, as in poems or addresses. A paragraph should be enclosed in a p element. The div element doesn't add/change any meaning. At most it changes the styling of the content (via CSS; ...

you can just generate share link via UI (for example: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=CA1656805C59C6C9!174&authkey=!ABYGECM1-9fSPG8), then replace "redir" for "download" (like this: https://skydrive.live.com/download?resid=CA1656805C59C6C9!174&authkey=!ABYGECM1-9fSPG8) and this will be direct download link.

It is not possible to upload files other than image and video files to Blogger. You would have to use other file sharing websites like Dropbox to share such files. Also, your Google Drive link works perfectly fine, feel free to use that link to share the same file with other people.

Pingomatic is a service which alerts (pings) multiple RSS aggregators/search engines in one action when there is a new post on your blog. This saves you from having to register your blog to all of the services individually. From the Ping-O-Matic main page: What is this? Ping-O-Matic is a service to update different search engines that your blog has updated.

Dropbox is intended for file sharing, not really web hosting and will even limit the traffic to your site if it gets too much traffic. If you are just trying to host some kind of blog I suggest using a blogging platform such as WordPress that allows you to create a free blog.

The index.html redirect from / is resolved by the web server. Given that Dropbox doesn’t offer a web hosting service, but a file hosting service, I doubt you’ll be able to make it work the way you want.

Blogger does not support relative addressing, so this is not possible. If you change your blog name, then: Blogger will change the names of links in your Pages gadget that point to your pages Blogger will not change any internal links in your blog. So you will have to manually edit each post, look at it in HTML mode and find-and-replace any links. This ...

Since you use Drupal, you can also use Drupal for Facebook. It is a module that you have to install into your Drupal website. With this module, you can automatically publish your new content to Facebook and allow Facebook users to connect via Facebook Connect.

Reading posts According to the documentation, users need to opt-in to be able to find posts from NSFW blogs with Tumblr’s search: What should I do if I don't want to see adult-oriented content? Unless you actively choose to display explicit content, when you search for anything on Tumblr you will not see content from blogs that are marked as NSFW (not ...

This Zapier Zap will let you share to your company page. You can also share to multiple pages as well which might be a benefit if you have lots of different Facebook pages to manage sharing. Disclosure: I run Zapier, but I still think it's a great solution. :)

The way I fix it only in the live page is by adding a special tag to each Arabic post (for example tag arabic) then in theme CSS I add: tag-arabic { direction: rtl; } You can add that CSS line through your theme (most new theme settings have a page where you can add custom CSS). For the WYSIWYG text editor, you can use this plugin: https://wordpress.org/...

This is a very old question, but in case someone else is looking for a solution, it's Poki for Pocket. This app allows you to connect to your pocket account, and then allows you to view your articles saved in pocket offline (minus images). I've been using it for a few days and, so far, it's great. I went looking for it because 1) I've got an upcoming 6 hour ...

In the absence of other solutions I'm currently just clipping things into evernote, into a special 'read later' notepad - evernote takes care of the syncing on all devices and everything works wonderfully.

When I go to www.blogs.com, I do not see any options to log in. But I do see a nice search function near the top right corner: Did you actually means blogs.com, or perhaps another tool like Blogger.com?

I found this explanation You can't get exact direct link of this demo.zip , but the direct link for the photos, videos, etc. you can. Example: As we can see the complete link of your shorten link ( http://sdrv.ms/13mwN2v ) is https://skydrive.live.com/cid=328ba01b2a22de20&id=328BA01B2A22DE20%21219&authkey=!APtFM-r5ezVjuoc .

There is a inbuilt functionality called featured images in WordPress: Reference : http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/ I am not sure whether it will be displayed in Facebook Embed Post but it is worth giving a try if you do not already have. EDIT: See the below reference: http://en.support.wordpress.com/facebook-image-thumbnail/ Featured image:...

There is no functionality for this within Blogger's(*) invitation-to-participate process: you cannot customize this email at all. But I guess that as an adiministrator you could set up a Google Form, and when someone accepts the invitation, send them a follow-up email welcoming them and asking them to complete the form, and then manually using the results ...

You don't do this using the "Intall Widget" feature - that's about adding the widget to the Blogger library, not to your blog. Instead, go to the Blogger dashboard, choose Layout for your blog, and then Add a Gadget.

But, yes what you have asked for is possible from now on, and is what I do for a number of my blogs. Firstly, if you're using the standard the About Me or profile gadget then remove it. (Make your own with an HTML gadget or something if you really want to. Make sure that you only ever create posts using account B. (NB This was a change a little while ...

This is not possible on Wordpress.com hosting. The "plugin" optionality is highly limited and curated on Wordpress.com - so to get a wider breadth of functionality, an upgrade to self-hosted WP is needed.

There's a contradiction in what you want, viz "I would like any reader who visits our blog to be able to request access." By definition, once they visit your blog, they already have access. But I'm guessing that what you really want is that "I would like any reader who tries to visit our blog to either get into the blog, or to be invited to ...

There are dozens of solutions to this. Facebook used to let you use an RSS feed to create Notes, but they closed that door a long time ago. This If-This-Then-That recipe (among many others) will create a link post on your Facebook Page Wall with every new post in your RSS feed.

The Like Box is deprecated now. You should use the Page Plugin now, which lets you easily embed and promote any public Facebook Page on your website. Just like on Facebook, your visitors can like and share the Page without leaving your site. To do this, Go to Page Plugin and configure your page. Click on Get Code Include the JavaScript SDK on your page ...

I use Addpoll to create online surveys, forms and polls. Offers me great account with detailed reports, unique design, exporting, easy sharing and more. There is an option that you can enable, so the user sees results, either by percentage or as vote count. Scroll to the end of the Create Poll help page to see an example. I don't know if this is available ...

It turns out that Google Drive does have streaming capabilities. And it doesn't change the URL for anything you move, so it's the perfect solution (aside from not having unlimited storage, but my use case doesn't require that, so I'm good). So my blog post jus consist of the following HTML: Whatever I want to write here...<br /> <br /> <hr /&...

You are correct, Blogger does not support this feature. Google Sites lets you create a website that is restricted to people who have access to the domain. If you use a "News" (I think that's the right one) type of page, it effectively creates a blog-style site which you can make posts to. (And the post-editor appears to be based on the same tools as ...

I believe that the limit is 100 invitations - ever. It doesn't matter if those invitations are accepted or not, once they're sent, they count towards the limit. Could it be that you've added 50 invitations before now, and so the current 50 mean you have reached the limit? (Or maybe Blogger has changed the limit). Also, once you have reached the limit,...
