Random Rotating Blogger ToolWell this is new gadget specially for blogger users. This gadget shows your blog post randomly one by one with excerpt. You can easily install it in 3 steps and can place it above the posts or somewhere else.


You can have a look at the demo blog with it's proper working. Click Here For the demo blog!

Now let me tell it's features first provided from the author...

1. Shows one post title at a time.
2. Links to the post.
3. Shows post excerpt also.
4. Every 5 seconds shows a new post.
5. Cycles through all the posts in the blog.
6. Starts a new cycle at the end of the list.
7. Once loaded continues cycling even when not connected to the Internet.
8. Uses official Google AJAX technology.
9. Can be used on other blogging platforms (not tested).
10. Hovering with mouse cursor over the post title halts the rotation till mouse moves off the gadget.


How It Works?

To save space and yet show all posts one by one this gadget uses official Google AJAX API Feed technology and the Dynamic Feed Control. It fetches the post titles and data from your blog and displays it in the gadget.

1. Go to Blogger Account>Blog>Layout. Here on the Page Elements tab, click on add gadget and then scroll down to click on Add Html/Javascript gadget.
