View Full Version : Does anyone here use "Blogger"? *help!*

12-06-2002, 07:48 AM
I'm using blogger to create one of those neat systems where people can respond back and forth on a website. Personally, I have no desire to go through php, which was my original plan, (derailed because my server doesn't support it) So I settled for using the free blogger service, and have no idea how to make any posts appear on my webpage. The annoying thing is that I'm probably overthingking everything so much that I can't find the answer...

In any case, here is the html on the page I'm using, at:



body {font-family: Arial; font-size 8pt; font-weight: lighter; color: #ffffff; background: #000000; SCROLLBAR-FACE-COLOR: #000000; SCROLLBAR-HIGHLIGHT-COLOR: #000000; SCROLLBAR-SHADOW-COLOR: #000000; SCROLLBAR-3DLIGHT-COLOR: #000000; SCROLLBAR-ARROW-COLOR: #aaaaaa; SCROLLBAR-TRACK-COLOR: #000000; SCROLLBAR-DARKSHADOW-COLOR: #000000;}
table {font-family: Arial; font-size: 8pt; color: #FFFFFF;}
a:link {color: #801010; font-family: Arial; text-decoration: none;}
a:hover {color: #FFFFFF; font-family: Arial; text-decoration: none; text-transform: none; filter: blur; height: 0; font-weight: bold; cursor: default;}
a:visited {color: #801010; font-family: Verdana; text-decoration: none;}
<title>Methodical Nit Wit</title>

<body bgcolor="#000000" text="#AAAAAA">

<p align=center><img border="0" src="legolas2.JPG" width="720" height="360"></p>
<div align="right">
<table border="0" width="721" height="540" cellspacing="3" cellpadding="0">
<td width="442" height="540" rowspan="2">
<em>:: <$BlogDateHeaderDate$> ::</em>
<a name="<$BlogItemNumber$>"></a>
:: <$BlogItemAuthorNickname$> <$BlogItemDateTime$> <a href="<$BlogItemArchiveFileName$>#<$BlogItemNumber$>"> [+]</a> ::


<td width="279" height="388" background="hero.JPG" valign="center"><p><iframe name="blog" style="border:0px dotted gray" width=262 height=295 src="blog.html" frameborder=0 align=center></iframe></td>
<td width="279" height="152"></td>




I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me what I'm doing wrong, the new messages that I publish don't show up on the webpage the way that they're supposed to.

Many thanks to anyone who knows what I should do!

First it was boards...now web logs...The weird thing is, when you look at most of these sites, they really need design help...not more diversions.

I'd just stick with php and use a free host like lycos.co.uk :D

Do you know if lycos.co.uk has popups or banners? I don't spot any mention of it on their site, but I assume they must.

Thanks. I'm gonna head over to php.net and see what I can figure out. I had never considered lycos.co.uk before, but I'll be very excited if it's an improvement over geocities.com!

Still, if anyone knows how this darn blogger thing works...:cool:
