Maintenance

As you can see, I am currently working to make a better skin for this blog. For this, I try to customise a free template. It is not easy, since I don't have any idea how to...

* Change the horrible font in the upper menu. Making that Menu work at all...
*Add all the old stuff like "friends", Old posts and so on in the right column, with the images so far...

Really no idea how to to this right now... :-(

Ah ... widget templates for the "new blogger". They're great once you've got the layout looking just the way you want it, and a great big pain in the butt until then!


Fonts -

Log into Blogger. Click "layout". Select "edit html".

Toward the top part of the html, you will find some text that starts with "Blogger Template Style" and then name, author, etc. Scroll down and you will find the settings for the page header font, side bar titles, etc. Replace those with your font of choice, making sure it's a default font everyone has. (I use Verdana.)


Adding Friends, links, etc. -

Go to "layout" and "page elements". You will see "add a gadget" on the right. Click on that. This gives you a list of all the types of gadgets you can add - simple link lists, text fields, rss from your favorite blogs, and so on. That should let you add your links and everything else you can think of adding. Once it's there, drag it around to where you want it to display in the menu - just click on the item and move it with your mouse.

Thank you very much, Mauser Girl. Unfortunately I cannot find the "add a gadget" on the elements edit page, that's why I am stuck.

That's weird.

The "add a gadget" link should be at the very top of the menu on the right.
