Customising the sidebar as you like!

The sidebar of our blog theme uses a javascript script which gives each user that visits this blog an option to see the sidebar widgets in the way he likes, or even close them. To see what I mean check the video and try it by yourself.

As we love web standards, we did not use the code that Youtube offers for embedding videos. This code contains the embed tag which is non-standard and does not validate as xhtml. If you want to embed a youtube video in your blog or site use this

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/moviecode" width="400" height="326"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/moviecode" /></object>

The moviecode is a code found in each youtube video adress and is after v= until the first ampersand (&). For example in this URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmHHjUZPyMY, the code is xmHHjUZPyMY. Using this code Typpz blog is still using valid XHTML.
