|Not this kind of slider.|
For those of you interested in the mechanics of the situation, my blogger interface had slowed to a hang when I was in the edit html mode. That was the case whether I tried to tackle it with Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox. I was able to delete all of the html in Chrome, and create a shell code with the simple template and rebuild from there. I was only smart enough to save some of my script widgets ahead of time (most of the ones that weren't blogger standard).
|Not this either.|
While I have my own domain name, the blog is still hosted at blogger. Aside from ease of use, I often wonder why. Google support for and innovation at Blogger is sporadic at best. Wordpress offers a lot more options and definitely a better menu of template options. That blogger doesn't even have a prepackaged widget for a slider on top is surprising. Top sites use them. Blogger consequently feels dated. Conversely, Wordpress isn't ad friendly. While I make a mere pittance on my blog, the option to do so is important to me. And I'm certainly not making enough to justify a hosted option like GoDaddy or Hostgator. Not yet at least.
Fixing the slider will be difficult because it's embedded in several sections of a news template xml file that I downloaded. It will work if I revert to the default xml but as soon as I try to adjust the slider pages, it seizes up and doesn't slide.
|THIS, is what I'm talking about.|
The fixing effort continues.
