            Although If using Chrome or Firefox, the comment box looks cool but reverse is the case if readers are browsing with Opera Mini better and on savings mode.


4.    Sidebar Appearing Below Post: The sidebar of any blog is meant to appear at the side bar of the blog on PC view but the case is not so with the new theme. On Default, the Blogger New Theme displays sidebar gadgets below posts both on PC and Mobile View unlike the previous blogger theme which shows the gadgets at the sidebar.
    This hitch can be resolved though using CSS and HTML styles.

This force most bloggers using the new theme to disable the Featured article widget on the new blogger blog theme.
