Blogger in draft

March 24th, 2010 · Posted by Skuds in Politics/Technology · No Comments · Politics, Technology

I spent more hours that I like to think about playing with Blogger in draft, which is the beta aspect of Google’s Blogger platform, to explore the possibilities of their new template design feature.  It certainly is an improvement on the basic Blogger platform’s layout tools.For my own site I much prefer WordPress, but the challenge for Horsham Labour party’s website was to do it all for free so we went down the blogspot route.  There was much trial-and-error involved in tonight’s work.  So much more fun than the RTFM approach, but I wasn’t totally reckless: I created a duplicate site first and played with that.  Only when I was happy with the results did I apply them to the live site.

The results are here is anybody is interested.  I can particularly recommend the page telling you how to donate to my campaign 😉

Very impressed by the ability to choose layout options and resize columns.  It is a lot easier to resize columns than in WordPress, and there is a preview of what you are doing visible all the time.  It takes a bit of the challenge out of it all, but it puts all sorts of things within the reach of people who don’t do HTML and CSS.
