Tweaking Bloggy Headers

Call Me The Breeze started wif the Blogger Rounders 3 Template. If your lady is a geekess like mine she can probably follow this.

REMEMBER to back up your existing template in case something goes wrong.

Where dere bold face means substitute your stuff.

To add a tiled background image find the line
background:#123;

and change it to
background:#123 url('http://www.yoursite.com/yourbackground.jpg') fixed repeat top left;
and make sure it all on one line, not split like dat was.
If your image iz transparent, change the #123 to a suitable background color.

To make the title bar show name of post and a description, find the section wif da <Title> tag and make some changes:
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "index"'>
<title><data:blog.title/> | your description</title>
<b:else/>
<title><data:blog.pageName/> | <data:blog.title/> | your description</title>
</b:if>

Add dogtaggies for google in the header section right below the title bar section:
<META CONTENT='This is a sentence that describes your blog.' NAME='Description'/>
<META CONTENT='some keywords separated by commas, cats, dogs, pictures of animals' NAME='Keywords'/>

To set a favorite icon, da little pixchur in your browser address line, you have to store your icon on another site. After the line
<b:include data="blog" name="all-head-content">

add dis:
<link href='http://www.yoursite.com/iconname.ico' rel='shortcut icon' />
