Still building.

I'm still adding blogs. This setup makes it easy. All I have to do is click on the tool icon on the appropriate bit of the sidebar and up pops the add-stuff screen. No wandering through menus.

I've added 'Hibernation Corner' for blogs that have ceased activity but are still there. You never know when one might pop back to life. The LiveJournal blog will go in there too once I'm confident enough to stop duplicating posts.

Adding extra blog lists is easy. I just click 'customise' and a page comes up showing the layout. Click 'add gadget' and the options appear, add another blog list gadget and drag it to where you want it to be in the list.

I really should have moved ages ago. This is the place to be if HTML makes your eyes wilt.

I was just going to explain how to get DK's to work, but MLL has beat me to it. So I'll go back to mine and change her feed instead.

I've just added your updated site to mine now.

Are you finally dropping the livejournal site now?

Oh, and BTW LegIron, if you want to copy your old content from your LiveJournal blog over to your new blog site, then you can do it using this:

Blog2Blog

I'm going to need more help on the RSS feeds. I can't find a way to make Blogger let me put them in manually.

I have my pointy hat with the big 'D' ready for when someone points out the obvious...

Hi LegIron,

If you go to the top of your blog there should be menu option called Customise (if you are signed in).

Once you click on that you can see the follwoing tabs:

Posting, Settings, Layout, Monetise.

Click on Layouts tab.

You should see your Page Elements. Find the Gadget that says My Blog List or whatever you have named it to.

Click on the Edit link.

You should get a popup window that says "Configure Blog List".

There is a button: Add To List. If you click on that you can enter the URL of the blog by hand.

I hope that is right and it helps.

Can you put me in your yet-to-be-conceived Conspiracy Theorists blogroll, Leg-Iron? :)

Leg-iron said...

I knew it would be simple if I could just see it.

Fixed now. That just leaves Kynon's to sort out. I'll leave a message over there because he's computer savvy so he might know what to do.

Fausty - you're in. I should get time to categorise over Christmas.

Fausty said...

Thank you, Leg-Iron!

Hi LegIron,

Kynon's RSS feed url is:

http://kynon.livejournal.com/data/rss

You could try adding that manually to your blog role and see if that works?

It worked, but it's not showing the most recent. He has a 'No Cheeldren' filter on which might block recent ones.

I know he's afflicted with lameness at the moment so assuming the NHS haven't shot him yet, he'll no doubt appear soon.
