HTML Editing-How to Customize a Third Party Blogger Template

HTML Editing-How to Customize a Third Party Blogger Template- During may regular web surfing I found a blog where an excellent blog post/article about customizing the navigation bar of a third party template was there. The blog's HTML editing procedure was advised correctly. As the article was perfectly written, Here I am not interested in discussing about what was written there or I found any lacunae there. In fact the post was written in a nice way and the procedure of customizing the blog’s navigation bar including the process of adding and modifying the pages was explained correctly and in an easy to understanding way. What I want to say is, that some more things like header, related posts etc. could also be added and explained in addition. Customization of blog Header and the related posts is most important for blog’s look.
