Scratch Blogger Template
We' re going to work on the Blogger template from the ground up with as little coding as possible and then use our boatstrap to do the shaping as soon as we have the naked bone in place.... First, begin with the least amount of coding possible and then from there.
So, I have ailerplate for the least you can have for a Blogger template below. 1.0" "UTF-8"'main''side-bar-left' The above is all you need for an empty Blogger template. At least one day and at least two tags in the bodyshell are needed, otherwise the template will make a mistake if you get friendly and neat.

Build your own Blogger template from the ground up -1 - Custom opinions
Customising a Blogger template or making a new one isn't very labor-intensive. Usually css part, because Blogger template is a xml-document. Part of the CSR will modify the appearance of your page and you can optimize CSR on the Blogger template and customize it according to your needs.
However, if you are planning to modify the flux of items or a fully customizable template, you will also need a Google atom fundamental atomic millimeter syntax. What is more, you can use the Google Atomic Template to create your own custom template. Make a demonstration blog in Blogger: In this article we will create a Blogger template from the ground up. First, create a demonstration Blog and set its visual preferences to privat.
This can be done by going to the Dashboard of your new demoblog and going to Preferences >> Base >> Permissions page >> Blogs reader. Now, we create a xml on our computer, which will be our Blogger template. Make a new xml for the Blogger template: 100%; height:60px; backcolor:gray; text-align:center; padding-top:10px; clear:both; Here at the top is the xml statement, then the HTML 5 statement and then the Blogger related partitions.
Now, we have inserted the blogs in the header so that we can get information about the blogs, in this case we want to show the titles of the blogs as the website titles. In the case of our homepage, the name of the page is the name of the blogs.
If we are on a posting or "item" of our blogs, then the page heading is the heading of the posting, followed by the name of the blogs, for example: "This is a posting | My Blogs Name". Essentially, what it does is just check if the page type is "index" ("Homepage" means homepage) and then show the blogs headline or show the posts headline followed by the blogs headline.
There is a skins day after the name. That' where we use the styles of our own blogs. I have added some code here that gives our blogs a fundamental look. Within the wrap divider there are three dividers for our header, our diary and one for our footers.
Within the headers we have added a section with ID and category of the headers. Sections are the areas in Blogger where Blogger places the "Widgets". Like in our example we have added a wideget with the ID Header1. It will show us the headers of our blogs. Our head area also has an maxwidgets= "1 1 attribute?.
It is used to specify the maximal number of Widgets a section can have. That means that our headers section can only have one widget. The showaddelement= "no" preference means that we have deactivated the add widgets feature. In our weblog contents we have now added two different divers with the names "leftcol" and "rightcol".
Linkcol will contain the blogsidget. For our example, I added a section with the classname mother and I added a widget to the blogs. The right hand side has a section where we will insert our side bar Widget like pop ular post, archives etc.. Uploading a custom Blogger template to our demonstration blog: Now we're uploading our template to our demonstration blog so we can further customize it.
There is no template creation utility provided by Google, so from here we will do all the programming in the Blogger template HTMLditor. Go to your Blogsharing >> Template >> Backup / Restore and load your own template. Blogs Blogger adds your new template to your list of available widgets instantly. And if some side bar widgets appear below the blogside, either remove or drop them from the desktop options of your blog's desktop into your side bar area.
The article was just an intro to the Blogger template design. The next few articles will feature playing with RSS and Blogger widget code to make our blogs even more fun.
