I'll join the Nomad in complementing your new banner.

Also, I'm jealous that you have a banner. Although I have not used your tutorial on photoshopping light-sabers, I feel comforted that I know it's available to me. Is there any chance of a tutorial on how to put a banner on a blogspot blog? Or even a link or short explanation of how?

Thanks, whatever the response.

Brian,

Thanks for the comment.

If you hover your mouse over the main text of my blog, then hit right-click, then select the "View Source" option (or, in Korean, "soh-seu bo-gi"), you'll see a window showing you my template's HTML. Scroll down a short way from the top of the HTML, and you'll find the HTML tag containing my banner.

Sticking a banner on your blog is pretty much like sticking a picture in the main text of your blog. It's simply a matter of poring over the HTML in your own template to figure out where, exactly, the banner/header-related HTML is.

When I originally rooted around my own Blogger template, there was a lot of trial and error before I finally figured out where to stick the HTML. I had to use the "Preview" function quite a few times before I got it right.

Other, more complex alterations (such as the addition of the sidebar, which was not part of the original template) were coded by an HTML-savvy friend of mine.

Hope this helps,


Kevin
