Centering the header in Blogger

With some new blogger template the header is not centered, but it's very simple to correct.


Go to Design > Advanced > Add CSS > Paste the code below to Add custom CSS:

.header-outer {
margin-left:50px;
}

You can adjust the pixel width, depending the size of your header. Try different widths until the header is centered. Lower pixel width moves the header left, larger to right. With the template and the header I've used in this blog, 50 px width looks right.

Instructions for uploading the background image part 1

With new blogger templates it's much better to uploaded backgrounds, instead of using the background codes in gadgets. I know, this might sound surprising, because I made so long long backgrounds to use with codes. I'm going to add the new backgrounds the way, that you can copy and save to image straight onto your computer, but meanwhile and with the older backgrounds this is what you can do:

You can find the the instructions to upload the background to your blog, instead of adding background code with gadget, by clicking "read more". You can make this change and still use the same background you have chosen. This needs only a little bit effort, but the result is worthy.

a new concept, what do you think?



First I want to apologize, that I haven´t had time to reply to comments and I haven´t have time to even check the emails. And at least in near future I can´t promise to do any better.

And I have been still a bit confused about new Blogger templates, because originally my backgrounds are designed to use with old Minima template and the codes work best with that. There are ways to use them with the newer templates, I´ve posted about that earlier.

But I wanted to offer, for now on, also backgrounds specially designed to new templates, which you upload straight to your blog, instead of adding the code to gadgets. You can choose the way you want to use the background, for example like on the image above or like the way I've used the background on this blog. I will post the first "uploadable" background and instructions asap.

I get back asap. :)
