Go wide (or narrow) with your Blogger Template


When I created this blog, I couldn't seem to find a blogger template that had both the look I wanted AND full-width (filling the browser window as it re-sizes - both wider and narrower)... So, I took the template I liked the most (thanks Darren) and then fiddled with the template code a bit to make it fill the width of the screen the way I wanted it to and to fill the empty space between the top header, the main content area (the posts) and the right pane (side-bar).

A few people have asked me which template I used (I know, hard to believe), so I am finally posting both a sample blog using that template and instructions on how to use my adjusted template... I figure at least I'll have a place to point the people who have asked for this.

The sample blog shows how the template looks and gives a link to the template file itself... Don't be scared off by the colors, as those can easily be adjusted using the blogger layout tools from the dashboard.

JR: Thanks for the how to. I have been studying how to adjust the code since I could not find a good templates using wide format. The Narrow format doesn't work well with charts and presentation that need a bit more room. Thanks help. Bjon

brienz, others:
SORRY for any trouble you my have had with the template... if you can try again, it should work now. Apparently there was a blogger change made which made my original template not work - but I fixed it now...
Thanks for the patience...
