Redecorating

347824016
A bit of redecorating on the ole blog has resulted in a bit of seasonal dressing.

The free backgrounds available on the Cutest Little Blog On the Block are great but I noticed on several blogs that the background margins overprinted the text. This is just a matter of adjusting the width of the blog text. I tried it out on my own blog. Here's how: change the header-wrapper width and the outer-wrapper width from 800px (that's pixels) to 775px. It drew in the text margins just enough so they are not overprinting into the side margins of the background template.

Your mileage may vary.

  5. Thanks for the instructions. I haven't tried any yet but I've noticed them on others' blogs -- cute but sometimes annoying in that they make things hard to read, but you take care of that nicely!
