2. Templates

Obviously after creating your name and account you would want get a good template to match the theme of your content. If you view the tour Blogger Beta have made, you would see that they mention

"We’ve added a bunch of new templates"

To me this is dedefinitely misleading, rather then create new and innovative templates it seems they have just modified the old ones possibly to adapt to the new features.

Most of it is just vavariations of colour or slight modifications and the template viewer is now so small you can barely see the layout until you have applied the template.

Currently the HTML editor is unavailable hopefully they will add the editor soon.

They have made the basic colours easier to edit you just select the element and then pick a colour.

They have also made a function which allows you to edit the page elements, you can easily add or remove new elements. Some of the new elements include:
  • Lists
  • Labels
  • Feeds
  • Blogger logo (optional I believe)

A lot of the template I feel is still restricted compared to the other platforms.
