How to Put Scripts to your Blogger and its Application

When you are making a website, you must be involved in creating HTML pages, making good design with designing tools. This requires you to know HTML and how to put scripts.

A script is a collection of lines that functions as program code that instructs our page to do certain things or access a certain script form a certain site that will show as if it was from our site.

If you’re a blogger that do not know anything about programming which I define as writing code and make scripts such as for HTML,PHP or Java, you are eased by blogging facilities. such as what blogger has. All you have to do is go through the menus like accesing your free email.

And the other good news is that nowadays many sites that provide applications are getting more friendlier by providing scripts for us to ‘paste’ to our blog.

When you blog, setting up scripts like this is the next level after you know how to write an article and upload pictures. Putting up a script from a site to your blog is easy but you must be carefull not to make mistakes because it will result of an error or the ‘thing’ you are expecting to show did not show.

One more important thing is also be careful of not putting up ‘malicious’ scripts meaning scripts that contain directives to a malicious site or contains viruses. Nowadays web browsers and search engine (google) has the capability to prevent us visiting these sites from the warnings.

Examples of scripts that we usually embed to a blog or site are as follow:
  • A script for You Tube
  • A script for putting a Slide Show (pics or presentation)
  • A script for exchanging banners
  • A script for putting up a chatbox
  • And many more

Basically in Blogger you put scripts to :
  • The article part of your blog
  • Other areas such as the sidebar, header, footer of your blog.
When you have learned this, you are expected to know how to apply it for many other application.

I. Putting scripts in your Side bar or Other areas
