For some time now, I've wanted to change the look of my Appalachian Tours blog. I knew what I wanted to achieve (rotating header images), I just didn't know how to make it happen. After a bunch of reading and some experimentation, I made it work. And I am quite tickled about it.
It wasn't as simple as THIS POST would make you think. So, if you're not a bit techhie, don't try it yourself.
I had to change this line from the provided code...
...to read like this...
I am not techhie enough to do a great job explaining this. I only know a teeny bit about CSS (cascading style sheets), which is essentially the behind-the-scenes code that tells a browser how to render your page. What you see -- bold letters, centered titles, font sizes, etc. -- is based on what's in a site's CSS.
If you select Edit HTML in your Blogger Design window and scroll down, you'll eventually see something like this...
It took some trial and error to figure out what to change. I also had to insert a transparent header image to sort of make space for the rotating images to appear. I had to make some other minor tweaks, too. For example, I have 11 different images, but the example only had 6.
What's this all mean?
Every time you refresh this page, you'll see one of 11 different header images.
Sorry I can't be more specific, but I only know enough about CSS to be sort of dangerous.
I'm just glad it worked.
As much as I like the images, I sort of like this header the best.
Do you like the variable headers? Or do you find it confusing, overwhelming, tacky, etc.?
