Did you know that Blogger (beta and orginal flavors) both have a built in setting that takes some of the hassle out of posting? The feature that I have in mind is found on the dashboard under Settings/ Formatting/ Post Templates. For example, on this blog, I often use a pullquote. So, I take this code:
<p class="pullquote">and paste it in the Post Templates box. After I save the settings, the code is in place. When I write a post, I type in the Title and Text of the pullquote. Automatically, I will have a pullquote in my post. (Assuming I have the correct code in place in my CSS style sheet. See Visual Interest - Pullquotes for simple instructions.) You can then cut and paste the code to the area of the post you want it to show up.
On my other blog, Buttermilk Clouds, I always start the post with a photograph. So, in that blog's Post Template box I add this code:
<image class="centered"alt="title" src="URL" />
Post templates help users save time by pre-formatting the post editor.
All I have to do is put in the image URL and write the title of the picture.
This speeds up the posting process and makes posting a breeze. I can never remember the simpliest of codes, and I was forever looking up the code. Now, all my most used codes are in place and waiting.
On the chance I don't want a pullquote or a photo, all I do is delete the code from the post box when I create a post. A simplier process than looking for code to put in!
