A New Look To My zuqiuwang Blog!

I have given a new look to my sports blog - zuqiuwang - by installing the WordPress Contrive template bloggerised by Lasantha.

But it was not as simple as just downloading and uploading the template to my blog. 

I wanted to remove the menu bars and not being code savvy, I didn't exactly know how to do it. Even a check with Lasantha's blog post on how to configure the template didn't quite help as the post did not have what I was looking for.

So, I had to play the intrepid or foolhardy code hunter and try to figure out where and what exactly I was looking for.

So I made some 'educated' or lucky guesses, and the gods must have been smiling.

The rest, they say, is history - and a good one, fortunately, for me.

I have also changed the width of the blog and the side-bar and added three columns to the bottom. For these tasks, the Internet helped.

But whatever you are doing, before you fiddle with the codes, Always remember to first backup your current template because if anything goes wrong, you can always re-upload it.

I have also reinstalled the blogger navigation bar because I find it convenient to sign in and out. But I have changed it to hover instead of the fixed one because this gives the blog a neater and sleeker look.

I hope you like the new look to my zuqiuwang blog. You can access it by clicking here . But I must apologise for not updating it for a long time already. With the Euro 2012 on now, I think I have no excuse to be malas (lazy) anymore.

If you are not too familiar with the codes like myself, have you ever fiddled with them? Was it a happy experience for you?

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
