Brand new look! - behind the scenes.

Thanks to all for the positive response with regards to this blog's face-lift!
here're some questions answered:
1. How did i change the blog background?
  • i basically took an existing template from blogspot.com and changed the original background pics to my own custom designed ones to create a new background. sounds cheem? NO! if i (a html idiot) can do it, anyone can! (well, actually i had help...) just click on the template tab and go search for the background part amidst the html gibberish and change those .jpg / .gif files to your own. if u wanna see what pic u're changing, just copy the whole file name, for eg "http://www.blogblog.bkgd.jpg", and paste it in a new internet explorer window to see wat pic it is. it takes some time to find the right file, but it's quite simple once u get the hang of it. and once u know how, u can custom design any blog template!

2. How did i create the title bar and photo album?

  • did that using macromedia flash...dabbled with it in uni so roughly know how to create simple flash animations. if u have the programme, just go online and search for flash user help...think there're many flash tutorials available online. but before u can see your new background / flash animations on your blog, u need to host the stuff somewhere online 1st...wonder if can host at blogspot...?

haha...i feel honoured answering your questions...actually i dunno much about creating websites...i'm no expert lah...*blush*
