A slightly different look to the place

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been making some changes to the blog.  I wanted to add the polls last night, but the only way to do that was to upgrade from “Templates” to “Layouts”.  Doing so wiped my template pretty clean.

Luckily, I was able to restore most (if not all) of my items in their former places. Although I did do a little minor rearranging and the upgrade includes the “Follow” gadget.  So, if you like my blog, you can follow it, and get updates whenever I post them.

One thing I should note and that I will need to fix is some of my graphics are cut off on the side.  Where the template had a larger area, the “Page Elements” is smaller.  So, I’ll need to get reduced sized graphics for those spaces.  And it’s a static amount of space, which means widening your browser doesn’t affect them at all.  That’s something that disappoints me, because there is a lot of wasted space on the sides now.

Stay tuned to see what other changes I make.  I’m going to be playing around with the site for a while.  And I’m still looking at moving to my own domain in the next few months.  If and when I do, I’ll make sure to post a few articles in both places and post plenty of links to the new home.

Have a great weekend:)
Patrick.
