Template Stuff

Okay, I know some of you are awesomely talented computer types that make this novice look like a babe in the woods. (Anytime I can look like a babe in anything is a good time for me but we won't go there.) Well, it's true, I can talk a good talk and I do manage to tweak my own templates without hurting things too much, but what I want is completely beyond my skills.

My blogroll has gotten really long. It could be a lot longer, with all of the reciprocal links I'd like to get up, but the list is so long it's getting to the point that good blogs are getting lost in them.

The solution? Actually, I'd like a three column template with set-size gutters and a center column that expands and contracts for screensize, etc. I've seen a lot of three column sites where the center one doesn't contract, and text gets lost under the right gutter. Hate that. There has to be a way around that.

Any ideas? I can't just email Sekemori and ask her for a new template, as it's beyond my resources to pay for one right now. I'd even take one in the wrong colors that I could re-work in the stylesheet to get right.

Nothing fancy, no background patterns or graphics. Clean, just like what I have so that I can get some of the stuff off the bottom of that gutter up to the top where folks can see them. And expand my capabilities as far as the blogroll and other cool stuff.

I use MT v2.6sumpinorother, if that makes a difference. If you know of a place where I can get one, let me know.

I might even cook for the one what helps me. You never know. I make a mean pork roast and cornbread dressing. Green tomato pie sweet as Aunt Drucie's apple pie. Greenbeans with onions and jowl bacon. Sweet tea clear enough to read through it. Corn pudding. Hot biscuits and home made rhubarb preserves. Make it all right there in your kitchen so it's hot and fresh and delish..... Sound like a deal?

Damn! I wish I could make templates for MT after reading that banquet offer! Now I'm salivating all over my keyboard for nothing. Rhubarb preserves..whimper. lol

You should try posting this at the munuvian forum ( or at, that's where munuvians (people who's websites are part of the group).

I'll have to pass on your wonderful feast, I'm a vegetarian.

Well, Michelle, I can do the vegan thing too. I'm multi-cuisinal.

Oh, man, why do I have to be so tech-not? That menu got me going.

I am sure there are techno-geeks out there that can help you though. Sorry I can't help you out.

If I could do it I'd help you out; I've been trying to do 3 columns on MY site and have failed miserably each time I attempt it...! Too bad, too, because I'm NOT a vegetarian! ;)

I would be willing to try to set this up for you, but I can't guarantee anything. I suspect another one of your readers either already knows how to do it, or could figure it out faster. If not, let me know, and I'll see what I can come up with.
