A Little Housekeeping

I've had basically the same blog template since I started Clinton Hill Foodie, and I think it's been getting a bit long in the tooth.  Frankly, I've been sick of it for a while.  After all the little hacks and customizations I put it, I'm not sure it was rendering properly on any browser, and with Blogger recently changing the way images are handled, the whole thing was just a mess.

So I'm playing with things a bit.  You'll notice things changing over the next few days as I settle in on something I like.  For now, I'm using a very simple and basic template just to change things for the sake of change.  If I like it, I'll keep it, but I may play around with it for a bit.  If you have any feelings about it one way or the other, or if you find something broken, feel free to leave a comment.

I've been kicking around tackling this myself.

My major issue even with the new templating system they don't appear to offer any way to widen the template out at all so even if you decide to put in a 'large' picture it just bleeds off the edge of the page. If you figure out a work around for this let me know.

Yeah, it's still a pain and only seems to get me 70% of the way there without really going into the html of the template, which I'm loathe to do because of how convoluted it gets.

I like most everything about Blogger except the templating system. In that respect, Wordpress seems to blow Blogger away.
