How about this then?

I really like this one! My first template choice sucked, it seems :-) I know flowery stuffs are so not me, but this one is so pretty.

I don't really like the way the header is so small and kind of lost in the foliage, I think it ought to be bigger and more prominent. I hate the archives' font color. And the layout's fonts and colors button is frozen, apparently doesn't work with this template... Also, the whole page looks kind of messy - like an overgrown garden. But I still think its prettiness outweighs the mess.

I manipulated the fonts a little by manually changing the xml codes. I don't know anything about xml codes, and everything I do with the codes, I just do it on an intuition-risk-hunch-gut feeling basis, so every time I try to do anything of a 'grander scale,' I end up screwing up the whole page.

If anyone can tell me how to change the header area and font colors, I'd be very grateful and will think of sticking with this at least until I find the next new pretty skin. I want to align the header to the left, post in the center and all the links on the left. I've experimented, float, align, blah blah and all I get is a huge mess. But what bothers me most if the header. I can put a picture up on the header. Maybe that'd help a little but I don't think the header's the right place for a picture....or maybe it'd look better than the self-effacing little header it is now...or maybe...

Somebody help!!

better than the previous one.....but i think the title could be made bigger.. could you do that? Plus if u scroll down, it kinda looks empty..like a white sheet of paper..so could u maybe give the page some slight color?
but...way better than ur previous choice

I like this one better. It is so you. Just a personal suggestion. Can you please make your posts "justified"? I prefer reading paragraphs that are justified, mit en pawh a nuam fe zawk a lawm, justify chuan.

I had used this template some days back, for precisely 10 mins and the decided against it for the precise reasons you have in this post :)

Hope you get some help to tweak it, I am really clueless as you might have already guessed!

Happy Birthday my dear!!!!!!!!!

Where is your birthday post? We want Birthday post, we want birthday post :-)

Have a blast, and play safe :-)

And plz, no image file in the header! Coz your template is already covered with prominent graphics. And do consider my suggestion about aligning the paragraphs "justify".

Happy birthday once again dear.

Okay, I'm changing it again. Not sure what I'm going to use, but I've tried my best with the codes, and my best didn't work. So no go!

so what kind of template do you actually need?

Jerusha said...

lal - I was thinking of upgrading, but now because all the xml ones are so complicated, I think I want to revert to classic. Type and make and style and design - I'm open.
