1 Comment Buzz Here
Have you ever thought of designing your own header template and your not sure if you can?

I designed a few and it turned out great (That's for me, anyway) the very first that i made that i like so much is my other site's header clickdtalk then next is my hubby's site IMW ever since he started i designed, re-designed he's site and header. I really love playing with images and making my own headers.

I have downloaded and use a few graphic editor software, an image manipulation etc..., and i would like to share them to you this are a Free to download software and also a very easy to use.

Serif Draw Plus 4.0 - Vector Graphics, Illustration and Drawing; This is my one of my can create a vector image and even an animation, you can convert the image and edit them so easy to learn and you are going to enjoy using this software.

Gimp - This is another Popular image manipulator, you can find a lot of tutorial that can help you with this software. Honestly, i downloaded this but have not tried it yet, i read a lot of tutorial and the reputation is quite high so it's all up to you but for me it's worth trying...i am definitely will try to learn how to use Gimp.

Inkscape - An Open Source vector graphics editor, If you can't afford Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format then inkscape is the answer it's capabilities is similar to the above mentioned. I love this and i am studying on how to trace my own image.

Show you one that is done 100% by inkscape by one of artistic user ScislaC
How do you like that!....

Anyway, this are the three that i know except Adobe because for me this is for professional users you have to pay i love to have one but i am a basic user so i am happy with what i have. Now that you have this choices of image editor software (Actually more then editor) you can start playing with your images and make your own site header.

Please let me know which one you choose and enjoy to use among the three, i would love to hear them.

How do you like to have Smilies on your blog? Some blogger have already use smilies and some are not because either you have not aware that you can use them and not just yahoo messenger or you don't know how to.

I know that you can use smilies :) but have not used them for quite a while until now that i remembered. Geekaholic have the full instruction but i decided to share it here aswell but it is more of short cut, i suggest to read more from he's blog to learn and understand more about smilies.

Here's what to do:
Go to your Dashboard - Layout - Edit HTML then Hit Ctrl+F type </head> and place the code below before closing the head.

<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>

then save.

That's it...Easy.


Position Comment Date Above the Comment Body

I am so glad that blogger have finally release the new comment system and now we can start making it look better like wordpress comment system or any other platform. :-)

I have posted about how to improve your comment section to create more interaction and that include how to highlight the authors comment. I have seen now a few sites where there comment section looks great and look much more better than before.

Today let's make a little changes, if you have noticed the timestamp in your comment section is placed at the bottom of the body...i would rather place them at the top right next to the comments authors name. To make this possible we will move the timestamp code right next to the comment authors code. Here's how to do it:

Reminder: Before editing your template, make sure to save a copy of your template.

Let's start:

  1. Go to your Dashboard - Layout - Edit Html
  2. Tick the box to
  3. Click Ctrl+F then type <dd class='comment-footer'>,will then get to the code below
  4. This code below is what we need which you can find right after <dd class='comment-footer'>

  5. <span class='comment-timestamp'>
    <a expr:href='data:comment.url' title='comment permalink'>
    <b:include data='comment' name='commentDeleteIcon'/>
  6. We will move the above code right after <data:commentPostedByMsg/> then save.
Now look at what you have just looks better than having the timestamps at the bottom of the comment body right!?

I hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as i am...until next time.
