blogger.com's Dynamic Views

5.2: news.cyb/net.blogger.com/Dynamic Views:
summary:
. dynamic views allows your readers to
select a viewing mode
(list of entries, matrix of icons, etc);
. if you switch to the dynamic view
then you get a menu for changing views,
but you lose the view you have now !
. the way to get dynamic views
and still keep your old view,
is to make your own menu:
one of the widgets of the old view
allows you to list your favorite web pages;
you can fill this list with these links:
yoursite.blogspot.com/view/classic
yoursite.blogspot.com/view/flipcard
yoursite.blogspot.com/view/magazine
yoursite.blogspot.com/view/mosaic
yoursite.blogspot.com/view/sidebar
yoursite.blogspot.com/view/snapshot
yoursite.blogspot.com/view/timeslide

All about Dynamic Views for Readers:

Give your blog a fresh new look
and make it easier for readers to explore it
with Dynamic Views.
Dynamic Views make it easier to
read your favorite blogs.
Better yet, they make it easy to
discover posts written long ago
that you may not have read.
Blog authors can now configure their blog to
display Dynamic Views,
and select a default view
that best displays the type of posts on their blog.
To experience a blog in view
other than the default,
you can simply select another view style
from the toolbar, which, in some views,
collapses into a thin line as you scroll.
For the toolbar to reappear,
simply hover your mouse over the line.
If the blog you’re reading has Pages enabled,
the options will appear in a drop-down menu
showing the seven new ways
to experience your favorite blogs:
    Classic: A modern twist on a traditional template
    Infinite scrolling replaces the “Older posts” link.
    Use keyboard shortcuts to quickly jump between posts.
    You can navigate through the posts using J (older post)
    and K (newer post) or the arrow keys.
    Posts will continue to load as you scroll.
    Flipcard: Photos tiled across the page
    Magazine: A clean, elegant editorial style layout
    Mosaic: A mosaic mix of different sized images and text
    Sidebar: An email inbox-like view
with a reading page for quick scrolling and browsing
    Snapshot: An interactive pinboard of your posts
    Timeslide: A horizontal view of your posts by time period.

If the author uses a traditional Blogger template,
you can still explore the blog using Dynamic Views by
adding “/view/” and then the view name to the URL.
For example, to view buzz.blogger.com in the Mosaic view,
simply change the URL in the address bar
to buzz.blogger.com/view/mosaic.

. so far this is just a bad idea;
because, the only difference from switching
is you simply lose the
[traditional Blogger template] option
. if you try to view it in classic,
the google ad's placed side-by-side,
suddenly get enlarged
and put on their own line!
