trying out the dynamic templates on blogspot



I am trying out the dynamic viewer that blogspot has recently added to their template collection: shapeshifterisland.blogspot.com/

Admittedly, there are a few problems with it - like no link list for example. The post titles are too big and you cannot make them smaller, so I did not give any of the posts titles. The bottom line is, unlike all other blogspot templates, this one does not allow you to edit the HTML. And the advanced customization editor is also very limited in what it can do. Just change colors and fonts basically. As I said, even changing font sizes won't work... Ouch!

And not all the viewing versions look good - the one called "snapshot" looks awful in fact. And you cannot disable them, the visitor gets the choice, which is always listed at the top. (Although I did sort of get around that one by making the type color the same as the background color - teeee heeee).

But still, for something like this that contains photos only, with no big explanations or anything to go with them, it is quite a neat little display system.
