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. 

Customize a Third Party Blogger Template


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.
 

My entire explanation is based on the “Gremble Grey” template released by http://www.ivythemes.com. There may be a slight difference in other template HTML files as each template is written by a different writer and accordingly the layout may also differ, there some of the things written by me may some times not give the desired results but a lot of things may be similar. 

 

There are  millions of templates in the market therefore it looks impossible to explain the customizing procedure of each of them individually. I will advise the first thing to ensure you have saved the backup of your blog and your template –

What is a default template of blogger

Blogger provides it’s users a large stock of templates and if a blogger is using one of the templates made available by the blogger, this is called the blogger’s default template. 

What is a third party blogger template

Besides providing a lorge stock of excellent templates Blogger allows it’s users to use templates of their choice provided by other developers. While a user uses template of his choice provided by other developers on his blogger blog this is called a third party blogger template
