if you look at the blogger version of bj’s gay porno-crazed ramblings, it gives me more screen space for the actual blog; whereas here it sometimes automatically reduces the pic size – or won’t let me have multiple pics side-by-side, and in effect creates 3 columns. I’ve looked at other templates, and this is the least yucky. Here’s a funny part – if you just click on the “still working on it” title above, you go to just this post, and it looks just the way I wanted it to, since the template for the individual post only has two columns. Ideally, i want the NAVIGATION BAR above to have my archives, directors, and other links, instead of taking up valuable real estate on the left side of this front page. double sigh
i think the answer is moving on to another blogging application. blogger changed several things, not the least of which is you no longer have a choice about the NAVBAR (thanks to all the emailers, but all those instructions work on the OLD blogger). So, wordpress? i dunno; taking me a long time jsut to get the template to resemble something i would like, and by default everything has “comments” – which i don’t want on my site – and while you can “disable comments” the actual clickable link for it stays up, which would only prove frustrating to any reader clicking and not being able to do the thing i don’t want them to do but they wouldn’t know that cuz the linky thing is there.
the other annoying thing blogger did was require me to create a sub-domain – http://weblog.bjland.ws – and even though after that, and seeing some of the problems it created, i tried to convert my archives BACK to this format: https://bjland.ws/weblog/2009_12_01_archive.html – something in blogger converts them to the new format, (http://weblog.bjland.ws/2009_11_01_archive.html) which disables the pics, and the videolinks, and my brain, and…. grrrrrrr
so, if i get my hand out of my ass later, who knows, maybe i can get a better handle on this. wish me luck!
man o man! i gotta move all my files from my “blog images” directory, into a new directory. something to do with blogger not doing FTP somethin somethin, and it’s taken me 2 days to figure out what I need to do……
