Auto-hide blogger navbar like Windows taskbar

Hello Friends,

Avatar from Bloggeratto has put up a comprehensive post on how to get your blogger navbar to auto-hide like the Microsoft Windows taskbar. This means that after using the code from his post you can make the blogger navbar hidden and it appears only when one hovers the mouse cursor over the navbar section.

To view what I am talking about, just view Bloggeratto in Firefox and check out the navbar section. See how the navbar appears when you bring the mouse cursor near it and auto-hides when the mouse cursor is taken away. You can learn this hack on Bloggeratto from here.

Hello Deepa. As mentioned in this post of mine, the beta's template variable for a post's permalink will be "data:post.url". However, you should also be using an expr:href. I encourage you to look that the above mentioned post of mine if not already done so.

Hi, an additional nav bar hack can be found here. It hides the nav bar by default, but you can later reveal it by simply clicking on a button. And it works in the new non-beta blogger, too. Take a look.
