When you are in the blog design mode of the blogger template, you can only choose what colors they offer...or can you. Have you ever wondered how to change the color options to something different.
My daughter Courtney introduced me to this site a long time ago and I wanted to share with you. The site is really for designing your own website, but there are a few features we can use in our own blogger template...
This color chart for example.
You can view this color chart by clicking HERE.
Here's how to use it...
Pick one of the color dots the arrow is pointing to.
Once you select the initial color, the "shade" chart will show up on the right hand side.
Select the shade that you like and the code will appear in the box that I've circle below.
For our blogging purposes, we would only need the code. That submit button is only for the "building your own website" process.
They also have a chart for the HTML Color Names...Click HERE for the chart below.
You can see the name, code and the actual color on the chart. There are 147 choices. If you click on the code you can see what it looks like with other colors as fonts.
Just an FYI...I did a poll for blogging Likes and Dislikes. The one complaint was a dark blog background with light font color. It's hard on the eyes. Click HERE to see that post.
Now let me show you where to add these codes.
Go to your dashboard and click TEMPLATE.
Then click CUSTOMIZE.
In the upper left, you will click ADVANCED...green arrow.
Now click on each topic and add the color code you previously selected from the charts.
It will show on the sample of your blog below the chart, but will NOT be added until you click APPLY TO BLOG in the upper right corner.
