Blogger themes, where to start?


Treehouse doesn't cover blogger themes, but I wanted to see if anyone could give me advice on coding blogger themes from scratch.

I want to know where IK should start in terms of coding e.g. What CSS layout property is best to use, table or just the usual positioning. I know that there are other bits of code specific to blogger, but I want to know how other people go about coding a theme, do you do it straight into blogger or do you use a different program to code first then export the code to blogger?

Any help in getting started would be appreciated, thanks!

That just shows me how to use the blogger template designer, not actually coding a blogger template from scratch.

Hi Catherine,

There is no such course on blogger theme development (as not so popular for development purpose). However when I created few themes for my startup 2 years back, I took some help from some tutorials. Though those aren't available now but I have found a good one here: http://www.bloggeryard.com/2013/11/create-blogger-template-from-scratch.html

This might help you to get started. You can also ask for some help from the owner of templateism.com (Covers blogger templates) - https://www.facebook.com/Fosterzone

Hope this helps :)

Thanks, Zeshan
