This is my first serious blog I have ever run. I only know enough HTML to get me in trouble, so to make up for my lack of computer savvy, I’ve been using Beta Blogger. Publishing and modifying your layout is super easy, however, there is only so much you can do with the WYSIWYG editor. If you want to do some cool stuff, you’re going to have to mess with the HTML. The problem with Beta is the code is a bit different on account of the WYSIWYG editor.
Luckily, there are several blogs out there dedicated to helping Beta Blogger users modify their blog. Because of these hacks, I’ve been able to add a third column, a recent comment section, trackback, a new banner, and RSS links to the Frugal Law Student. It was much easier than I thought it would be.
The only problem is that these different hacks are on different blogs. It was pretty time consuming to look for all of them. So, to help those who are looking to change up their Beta Blogger save some time, I’ve compiled a list of where you can find specific hacks.
- Add a third column to your beta blogger.
