Conflicting Behavior of Blogger Vs Wordpress Templates

Conflicting Behavior of Blogger Vs Wordpress Templates

Without any template level HTML editing, when you just start using the builtin templates of Google Blogger and Wordpress.com blogs, I just realized one interesting and important thing that we should take care whilst embedding big images or IFRAMEs in each of them. I am sharing these tips over here for the benefit of other bloggers as well.

  1. Blogger allows extreme flexibility of embedding IFRAMEs and similar HTML controls, whereas Wordpress restricts the same. At best in the latter you can hyperlink them.
  2. When the embedded image/object sign exceeds the specified width, the right navigation of the blogger just goes below the page (after all the posts complete), whereas in Wordpress the object gets clipped after its content area.

Perhaps if you are using Wordpress installation on your own servers, you might be able to edit it and overcome the limitations of Wordpress.com hosted blogs. But the scope of this post is an advisory to the bloggers with respect to inserting images and third-party objects within the blog post.
