Minicard, business card with Blogger.

Español Português

Minicard is a design originally created for WordPress by Mike Jolley, and ported to Blogger by Blog and Web and BTemplates. This is different template, because it works to create a virtual business card.

Displays multiple social services, Twitter updates, supports static pages and color settings from the panel. NO supports normal posts, but from your virtual card you can link to your blog.

Installation

You can read our FAQ section to see how to install a blogger template.

Settigns

1. Profile photo.

Upload a photo of 64×64 px to a free image hosting and copy the link. Search within your template code (Home → Design → Edit HTML) the following URL:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Zuzii37VUO4/S3-LeuWqxZI/AAAAAAAAEhw/8O3S30d_O8Y/s1600/photo.png

Replace that code with the URL of your image.

2. Menu.

Create static pages from the panel (not posts) with all the information that you display. For example, "about", contact, services, etc.

3. Social Links.

Search within your template code (Home → Design → Edit HTML) the following code:

<!-- SOCIAL LINKS - ENLACES SOCIALES –>

Below you will find well indicated blocks of code for each service. Now, remove all services that you do not use. The block has the following form:

<!-- Delicious --> 
<li class=''>    
 <a href='http://delicious.com/username' style='background-image: url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Zuzii37VUO4/S3-LsoJJ6CI/AAAAAAAAEi0/JiEXrGdO7iw/s1600/delicious_32.png);'>Delicious</a>
</li>
<!-- /Delicious -->

In the social services that you do use it, replace "username" with your own username. For example, for Delicious, change "http://delicious.com/username" with "http://delicious.com/my-username".

4. Twitter timeline.

To display your Twitter updates, search within your template code the following code:

btemplates.json

Replace "btemplates" with your own username. If you want to delete this section, remove all code between <!-- Twitter Timeline –> and <!-- /Twitter Timeline –>.
