Blog templates

Every so often I play with the template on the blog, partly for a change and partly because I want to see if there's anything new blogger can do. I'm always jealous of blogs like John Gotze's or Phil Windley's as they're both cleverer than me with all things technical and seem to have better gadgets to play with in their blogs. This time, though, I've changed the template because I was having problems rendering the site in IE. It worked fine in Firefox, my default browser, but checking it in both Mac and Windows IE, the right hand side-bar appeared beneath all the posts. I think I've fixed it now, but I've had to change the template. And, no, there are no new gagdets in blogger that I could find to make things more interesting.

  1. I feel your pain with the RH modules overlapping the main body. I've been suffering similar issues with the introduction of my new template.

    Not done full browser testing, but have ironed out some of the overlapping issues by playing around in CSS and HTML, neither of which I'm qualified in...

    Very nice style, black text on white, very readable. Newspapers had this figured out.

  4. Ah, newspapers ... I remember those. Of course, I read the FT daily but orange just doesn't come out so well on the screen. Glad you folks like the style. If only I had any idea what Dan was talking about I'd do this CSS stuff he keeps going on about.
