One help

The blogger template, when one chooses it first, gives a rather small working area, with some blank space left on either or both sides. Since I use mostly 14+ inch screens, I tried to maximize the blog area by expanding the area. Then, in some PC's, I found that my profile and other stuff (which are on the left) would be pushed all the way down at the end of the page, which was due to smaller screen size; so I cut short the width (from 1100 pixels to 950 pixels). I also realize that it depends on the font size; choosing a bigger font would again squeeze the space.

So, I wanted to write this post for quite sometime: How does it appear on your screen, normal on the left or not? Letting me know that would help me in making sure that you all view the blog the same way I do by adjusting the width of my blog. I advance-appreciate it, y'all..

ashok said...

no problems here too...a small suggestion though...can u darken the background blue?

Raju said...

Paurna and Ashok, I am also thinking about changing the template.. u know one tends to get bored with the same stuff after sometime.. but blue is my favorite color and since it is a custom-made blue, I havent found this in any other blog so far. Thats kinda unique. I had a pitch-black background prior to this and there were suggestions to change it, since it tends to strain the eye. So, I wouldnt darken it any more. I will be looking for very lighter and simpler design. Right now, I am tied up with a busy schedule, since I am in a transition period. Template change is surely there on the cards.

Badri and Veda, idha, idha, idhathan edhirparthen.. so, from what you say, the stuff on the left, from 'About me' to 'Google ads' are at the top and my most recent post starts below the google ads? That would mean a further shrinkage is required. Thank you, both..

Hi Raju, this is wat i tried

1.chaged the resolution of my monitor
2.checked wth Firefox and Internet explorer.

'About me' to 'Google ads' are appearing left, recent post doesn't starts below the google ads.

Further I tried increasing my screen resolution to 1024 by 768.Wow! no scrolling anymore.!

Badri, thanks for the info. I am going to slightly shrink my page width to try and settle this issue. Lemme see..
