The Beanster Blog™ Version 8.5

Blogger is now out of beta been using the beta for awhile and really liked the labels functionality. I bit the bullet today and updated my template. It's really easy to mess around with the template now. There's a wizard for most everything you would want to add to your blog! Really cool and user friendly. I've done away with the Quick Menu and have replaced it with labels... I think navigating using labels would be easier. I am having trouble with XML and my custom codes that I've scrapped around for... I get XML errors when trying to save oh well. Atleast I was able to transfer Google Analytics, Hit Counter, and gVisit Maps... the basics really. I removed music and the photo slide temporarily [must look for new content to slide]. Anyway that's about it for version 8.5.x I will probably be making sub-point updates once I get the hang of this wizard driven Blogger. Overall I am happy with Blogger right now.

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
