A Genea-Musings Makeover
Schelly Dardashti told me to do this two years ago ... I didn't switch from "old blogger" at the time because I feared losing over 4,000 posts. Now it's up to 5,600 posts...and Blogger was showing only 10 posts on the home page and in the weekly archives.
So today I decided to bite the bullet. I exported the file just in case something went wrong, and tonight after DearMYRTLE's webinar I clicked on the Template link and it took just minutes to make the changeover to "new Blogger." I tweaked the colors and font sizes and will probably tweak some more. I haven't figured out yet how to change the background color for the sidebar.
With this change, I now have:
* A list of Labels with the number of posts in each on the sidebar.
* A complete set of weekly archives on the sidebar.
* A background image (I may change it at some time - need to learn how)
* The blog title and post titles are active links (they weren't before)
* A search box to search within Genea-Musings.
What do you think? Do you like it? Does it work on your particular computer system and operating system? If not, please let me know in comments or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
