Okay, I've done it again. I changed my template. Obviously. And I must say I like this one for so many reasons. First off, it's functionality is much better. It was written specifically for the new Blogger and works much better.
More importantly, the person who wrote it is really great at communicating fixes and how to tweek the code. One of the things I missed from the last template was 1) I couldn't see the nav bar and 2) I couldn't see the quick edit icons. With this template, I can fix both so that they're visible. All because the author gives detailed, clear instructions that don't assume a level of html knowledge that his users don't have. It's amazing.
Plus, it looks pretty damn cool.
