How To Add a New Template

So here's how to add a new template into your blog:


Log into your blog

Next go to ‘customize’ then ‘layout’ then ‘pick a new template’ then choose a minima template. Save.

Then click on "edit HTML:" and scroll down to where it says:


body { background:$bgcolor; margin:0; color:$textcolor; font:x-small Georgia Serif; font-size/* */:/**/small; font-size: /**/small; text-align: center;

Change that part of the code to say this:

body {

background:$bgcolor;background-image:url(direct link);background-position: center; background-repeat:no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed;

margin:0; color:$textcolor; font:x-small Georgia Serif; font-size/* */:/**/small; font-size: /**/small; text-align: center;


Now copy the address of the picture where it says "direct link"

Click Save!

Jen: I love your artistic designs. I have friend who would love to use them. Could you sent her a link? I don't know how, and suspect that it's yours to share and not mine anyway. Her email is Halls@byui.edu. Hey thanks! Mom

PS I need now to only start my own blog so I can use them too!
