Well this my 2 post on the same topic nearly after 6 month in my last post I have coverred all major hacks related to blogger but there better version of hacks now so in this post you get to know about few updated hacks and few new hacks.
Post Summaries WordPress Style
The very popular Read More or Expandable summaries hack almost every blogger uses this hack but this hack is quite irritating especially if your using the version in which you have to divide the post into two parts summary and the rest of it, also this version sometimes works and sometimes does not and its hard to implement on a old blogger since you have to divide each post to apply this hack uniformly.
But por Rô Zanchetta @ BloggerShpera has developed a better and best version of this hack which includes automatic summaries+thumbnail of images in your post this hack gives a very professional look to your blog and once you have added this hack to your template it applies to all your post. Here is what am talking about.

Breadcrumbs for navigation in Blogger
Breadcrumbs make s navigation easy and help the user to move from one Label to another flawlessly, but the term Breadcrumb is itself quite confusing so here is definition of Breadcrumbs from Wikipeadia.
Breadcrumbs or breadcrumb trail is a navigation aid used in user interfaces. It gives users a way to keep track of their location within programs or documents. The term comes from the trail of breadcrumbs left by Hansel and Gretel in the popular fairytale.
As far I remember i saw this hack first developed by Amanda which deals with usual code editing and related stuff but the best about this version is that it will appear in different styles on your different Blog pages.
