Wide 2-Column Template

Below is a link to a Wide 2-Column Template. There is no background or header included with this template. I've left it blank so that you can customize it however you like. You can add any of my free backgrounds and headers the way you did before.

This template has a width of 900px, so use the 3-Column code for any of my backgrounds that you choose to use. This template is wider to allow for more room for your blog posts and a slightly wider sidebar.

The border around the header has also been removed.

Also, this template lets you change the font of your Post Titles.

Remember to backup your template and widgets first!

  1. Thank you so much for this tutorial on getting a wider 2 column template. Your directions were so clear, and it worked the first time I tried it. You made a computer geek out of me! :0)

  2. Gosh, I sure hope you see this! After leaving my comment above the other day, I have realized that, by installing the new template, I lost the ability to add new labels. The only labels that are showing are the ones that were there before I installed the new template.

    When I try to add a new label now, it does not stick. After adding it and then posting the post, the label is gone from the post and is not in the list of labels.

    Please tell me there is a solution to this!

    Thanks!

  3. I didn't notice this before. Thanks for telling me. Right now I can't see why it would do that. I'll work on it today and post a solution soon!

  4. Thank you so much! I am very anxious to see what the problem is. Right now, I can only show about 6 labels, and I need about 20.

  6. Thank you so much!

    I do not see a place where you posted how to fix it. Where is that?

    Or do you mean that you fixed the code and I just need to reinstall the whole thing?

    Thank you!

    1. This template shouldn't remove the blogger navigation bar at the top. Have you added any gadgets to your blog that might have interfered with it?. If you haven't, I recommend going back to a blogger template. Make sure that you have the navigation bar. If you do, then add my template again. Let me know how it goes.

    2. I just removed all the gadgets that could cause the problem but it didn't change it so i put them back. The Navigation bar is on the side instead of the top and it won't let me move it. I even reloaded the template and it still didn't fix the problem. This is my blog http://justagirllivinginabigworld.blogspot.com/ if you want to look at it.

  9. Hey Dani thanks for the template. I'm having trouble though removing the wrench and pencil edit... and it's confusing because I've tried everything I've read on the web and I just don't see the "quick edit" in the HTML script even, so I can't figure out why they are even on the blog in the first place. Is there a way to remove these from your blog and if so how!? Thanks for your time.

    1. The "Quick Edit" is found somewhere else. Click "Layout" from your Dashboard and then in the box that says, "Blog Posts", click "Edit". You will see a window pop up that says "Configure Blog Posts". Find the box that says "Show Quick Editing" and has a pencil next to it. Make sure this box is NOT checked. Save your changes. This will remove the pencil but might not remove the wrench, I think. However, the wrench only appears for you when you are logged in so that you can quickly edit posts. No one else can see it. If you want to see what it looks like without the wrench, you just need to log out and then view your blog.

      Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I would love to answer everyone's questions, but I am a busy mama. I will try my best, but technical questions that require me to study your blog's html are very time consuming for me. I may not be able to answer all of these comments. If you are a reader that knows the answer to a question, please help your fellow readers by offering your advice.
