And We're Back (sort of)...

First off, my apologies for the lack of service.

I've been attempting to use a new template for the blog with, it must be said, only marginal success, so I've reverted to a more familiar appearance until I get it sorted.

Using a third-party template requires a little editing, however, as an IT professional, I naturally have little expertise with HTML, XML or PHP, which means research and a lot of trial and error.

I'm working on it offline, so as soon as I have a result you'll be the first to know.

I've got some php knowledge if you need any help with that. I find those blogger templates a real pain. You could also check out some of the free downloadable templates on various sites.

Even with a background in PHP and CSS template customisation can be a frustrating mistress especially for Blogger.

Don't let it drive you crazy!!
Thank you both, kindly...

I was getting kind of fed up with the existing template and I thought it might be a challenge to put a new one up instead.

Turns out I was right, but work and such prevented me from doing much with it so I'll have to work on it over time.

I've had some success but it's just a case of tweaking it until I'm happy with it before unleashing it on the world.

Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon...

Spam word (I'm not logged in yet) is 'molock' -

Noun, derog., as in "You've made a right molock of that, haven't you?" Plural: Molocks (inevitably)
or
Verb, derog., "You've gone and molocked it up again..."

It's that sort of week...
