Might as well take all my tutorials down now, I suppose....


Just a head's up - If anyone wants to save any info from my tutorials (meagre as they are) now would be a good time to save it.  With the new layout all my screen shots to show the steps to make changes are useless so there's not a lot of need for them if they don't make sense.


Ah well, it was fun while it lasted...


*Edit*  -  Hahah, now that I'm seeing my post title show up on my notifications it reads like a flounce, lol.  "...and I'm taking my tutorials with me!"  :P

In a graphic making mood...

I was thinking of creating themes for BL but I have no idea how to do it. Seems like a lot of shiz involved, so I was thinking of just making some backgrounds, and maybe adding some suggested hex colors to go with it. Anyone interested?

How to customize your BookLikes blog

Many - myself included - either have only rudimentary knowledge of Custom Style Sheets (CSS) or none whatsoever. Whichever category you fall in, there is a way to easily edit your CSS to customize the layout of your blog. Many browsers have addons to live edit your CSS and preview it at the same time. For Google Chrome I use Stylebot


I have used the first theme for my blog so please be aware that some edits shown here may not work with the other themes but if you get the basic idea behind my post I am sure you can apply a lot of it for the other two themes. :)

Customizing BookLikes Tutorial - Part 6 - Back to basics. Changing the the colour of your sidebar background.


A quick and easy one this time.  Changing the colour of your sidebar.  As always this is done in template one (default).


So, sometimes the background you choose may look great as an overall image, but your links, shelves etc in your sidebar can become lost in the busy-ness of it all.  Or maybe you have a plain colour background like I do but want a bit of contrast for your sidebar. Either way, it's a quick fix.
