[Pro] Blog on site

Hey all I know Ive read it somewhere. I would like to embed a blogger site on a FW page, so it is incorporated on site
and this is a responsive site…
could someone advise? I thought there was a blogger action but can’t seem to find it…

The Blogger action is to allow you to use a FW created template on BlogSpot.

You can then display that page via an iFrame on your FW created site. But as to making an iFrame responsive - that is a totally different kettle of fish.

Have you considered using Pulse’s Blog feature which will be a proper part of your site. Should also be much easier to make responsive.

already has a blogger

Then iFrame is the only way to display it within their own site as Blogger is a hosted system and cant run on his/your server.

Good luck with making it Responsive!

You could just use the PulsePro blog. They now have recent post and RSS feed addons.

Excuse my ignorance but I don’t get the gist of such an operation. Using iFrame has (in my small world of thinking) NOTHING to do with “embedding”.

Let me quick explain:

You have a room. In there you dig a hole to see the world out there. Let’s call this hole window. A dynamic window is a curtain installed where you can adjust the amount of what you see. Now the point:

You can adjust the excerpt but you won’t adjust the outer world. So all buildings, streets, trees whatever will remain the same size. To see more you would now have to step left or right - we could call this “scrolling”.

So what’s the gist of mirroring this world rather then embedding it, except of hiding the blog url (myproject.blogspot.com)?

Is there a chance to look at this blog? Maybe this enlightens me more? But it might be as well, that I’m getting dumber each day caused by whatsoever.

Cheers

Would using a blogger action such as this be similar to using CMS such as WebYeb - for simple text updates which would be the preferred method? Advantages and disadvantages of each?

thanks

But that’s exactly what I’m confused of.

I once made this project:

http://www.buenavista-socialarchitecture.de/index.html

There’s on upper right a lil blog link - pointing to blogger, but the blog page has the entire design of the project - so you leave the page, but not really cause nobody recognizes from the point of design. The only thing that’s different is the url structure.

And yes - it’s done with the blogger action within Freeway, copying the code and paste it into the blogger custom template. I can’t say it was easy - but possible.

Is it this you meant?

Yes, you have seen that, but in those cases there are at least two possible explanations for what you saw:

  1. The Blogger template was carefully constructed to appear to be part of the site, and the URL was either masked or a custom DNS setting was used to disguise the origin of the blog content.

  2. The site was using a locally-hosted blog, something akin to Pulse or Perch or WordPress, so there was no need to use Blogger per se at all, and the layout was naturally merged with the rest of the page because the server was composing all of it together into one page.

Putting a blog in an iframe would just cut a window in your page (as Thomas said) and allow you to see whatever site you entered into it through that window. But you could not control the styling of that remote site in any way – you are expressly forbidden to touch that content, as it is “sandboxed” away from your page. JavaScript and CSS in your page have no effect on it whatsoever.

Yes, in the case of my first example of how this was done, that was exactly what I meant. That’s what the Blogger Action is all about.

Yes you can - just not a Blogger (blogspot) blog.

You really have to spell out the advantages/disadvantages and these are many and varied.

If he has had a blogger blog going for a long time it might have some serious SEO mojo going that he doesn’t want to lose and in that case as Thomas has suggested you could use the blogger action to make his blogspot page look like his FW site and add responsiveness at the same time.

But to display his blog in an iFrame is going to ruin the responsiveness of his FW/BackDraft site.

but there is no need to step elsewhere.

The gist is (and now I understand this list - perhaps) that you don’t embed the blogger blog functionality into Freeway literally, but use Freeway to get the page-design (code) and insert it into the clients blogger backend template.

So your blog design will happen in blogger - Freeway is just the silver surfer to get the required HTML/CSS-properties.

Just my summary of this here.
