CUSTOMIZING YOUR POST TITLE IN BLOGGER

Friday, August 31, 2012


Have you ever wondered how in the world to get your post title to look a little bigger & centered on your blog?  Well after some playing around I figured it out and thought I'd share it with you just in case you didn't already know.

It's pretty easy, but make a copy of your blogger template before making ANY changes to your code or if you have a test blog that'd be even better so you don't screw up your "live" blog.

Let's get started!

First click on Design, then layout and choose HTML.  Then scroll through your code looking for this;
Once you've found that, your in the right place.  Now keep scrolling down until you see;
Beside the font size will be your current size setting.  Increase that number and hit "PREVIEW."  In the preview window decide whether or not you like the new size.  If you don't, keep increasing your number until you do.

Now, to center your post title over your post you will need to add additional code directly below your;
that you just changed.  Not beside, but directly below.  Here is the code you will add;
again, hit PREVIEW.  Now, your title should appear larger & centered over your post.  If all looks good and you are happy with the changes hit SAVE.  

The one thing about previewing in between each step is that you can see if anything has gone wonky with your code, making your blog look funny.  If it does then you can immediately take out what you just inserted and things will be as they were.  
Hopefully! LOL  I am in no way an html code genius.  I just try new things and keep my fingers crossed that it all works out.  Fiddling with your blog code is always tricky & I get all sweaty nervous every time I mess with mine.  So proceed with caution. 

{EDIT}Plus, you can change your colors by clicking design, template, customize, advanced then scroll through options until you see post title font.  Click post title font and you will be able to choose your color.

Now I've just got to figure out how to mess with that post date! LOL

PS:  Please be patient with me regarding my header.  I've found one I like but seems like not everyone agree's so hopefully I'll make a decision soon. Ha!
