2.Slowing Down Of Blogger
As one of reader didn’t used it because of slowing down the loading of blogger.As for this the dror cedor from wibiya.com gave a simple solution to it as you can read his comment here.
What exactly you have to do is that how to start the loading of widget after blog gets loaded.For this here is the simple solution.
The code which you will get to be placed in blogger will be like this.
Now what you have to do is just add &pl=1 in your link after you toolbar id as i have assumed here to be XXXX and make whole code look like below :-
What i have done is just added red part in link. By adding this the widget will load only after when the blog gets loaded, which will not effect the loading of blogger.
*Note:-If you are adding the script in widget its ok.But if then you adding in blogger codes it will not accept the script after making changes.So just make it code friendly from this Encode tool.
I checked this and really it had no effect on loading speed of my blog now.
I hope now you will have now no problem in installing the widget.
