How to: Change colour & font settings

Hi guys. How many of you have completely given yourselves up to Blogger Beta? Are you still using a classic blogger template in the beta world? Or have you swapped your old template for a brand spanking new widget-full beta baby??

For those of you who haven't, then you should really consider it. Why?

Well, one reason has to be the new 'Fonts & Colour' option in the template tab, which allows you to transform the look of your blog in a single click!

How many times have you wanted to tweak the background colour of your blog or change the header text but were too nervous to even consider editing the dreaded blogger template?

Thankfully this new function really makes it incredibly simple. No more faffing around. You just log in to blogger, select your blog from the Dashboard and click on the template tab. You will then see that there are four options to choose from:

Page Elements
Fonts & Colours
Pick New Template

Click on 'Fonts & Colours', and you will see a screen similar to the one in the screenshot above. Here is the clever bit. From this one little menu, you can change any number of elements of your blog's layout, such as:

Page background colour, Text Colour, Link Colour, Font Type, Font Size, etc...

It's easy to experiment with different colours and fonts now. Simply click on the 'Shuffle Blog Colours' option beside the large colour pallette and watch with wonder (woooooo) how blogger magically swaps the colours around. If you don't like what you see, you can simply undo it by using the 'Revert to Template Default' or 'Clear Edits' options.

So go on, have a go. Maybe have a different theme to match the seasons or even a different colour each day to match your mood. Remember, have fun. And if you don't like what you see, just undo it! Easy!
