Blogger Tips 2, Sidebar & Word Verification

Have you ever been to that blog that just stands out and makes you say "Wow!" and it looks pretty awesome?  Yeah, me too.  I have not gotten there yet but I am striving for that and it take some time to learn all that they already know.

One thing that jumps out at me is there sidebar.  So nice and neat.  How did they do that?  Look at these blogs Cropped Stories & Dysfunction Junction look these sites over there are lots of great info.  Mainly look at their sidebars.  They are so nice and cohesive.

The secret?  When you enter an HTML code place <center> right before the code and ></center> right after the code and it centers everything so it is nice and neat.

Also in the HTML section of you post, top left, Compose and HTML in between HTML codes you can add  
<br />
<br />
<br />
This spaces all out evenly.  Easy isn't it?

When someone visits your blog and they want to leave a comment at times it is aggravating to have to do the word verification code.  Here is how to get rid of it.

 When you first sign into your blog go to the Design Tab and click it.  This is where it takes you.  Click on Settings.

Next click on Posts and Comments.

Scroll down and you will see Show word verification.  Change the yes to no.  You are done!

  1. Thanks for the info! Just started a blog last week and still don't know what I'm doing!

  2. Word verification drives me bonkers.
    In the words of a wise woman: Ain't nobody got time fo' 'dat. :)
    Great post!

  3. Great tips!! I got rid of word verification as well as it drives me nuts when I can't figure out the word.
    Thanks for sharing.


  4. I agree. I'm not good with word verification. I usually have to try twice before I get it right. Great tips.
