Alright folks, this is the enhanced version of the original Mush Blue Blogger template. Actually this template was originally created by Mukka-mu as a WordPress theme but it was so popular, it was converted into an xml Blogger format. This template is kind of a spacey or underwater scene with a cool blue amoeba-like header graphic. This template would work well with most businesses or personal sites.
Not only that, but we’ve also added the RSS feed icon and search box which aren’t available in other downloads of this template. You’ll also notice that header tabs are dynamic and will show up once you edit the link widget. Just look for the “Top Tabs” widget box in Blogger page element edit mode. It will look like this:
You don’t need to add a “Home” tab since it will automatically appear once you add a new tab. Add as many tabs as you want and link them to wherever you like!
PLEASE READ: There’s one important configuration you need to make in order for the date to display properly on each post. After you install the Mush Blue template, go to your Blogger’s “Settings” => “Formatting” and look for “Timestamp Format”. Make sure you change it to this format: “Tuesday, January 25,2008” as shown below.
This needs to be set in this format otherwise the date won’t show up properly on each of your posts! Actually the date will most likely be blank and you’ll think the template is broken.
Download the .js file from here. Then save the file locally. Next you’re going to want to upload it to your website (not Blogger though).
Then you want to update your Mush Blue Blogger template and point it to the new location. You’re going to change line number 8 which looks like this:
1/20/08 – I’ve rewritten the template code so you no longer need a separate .js file for the date to work properly. If you’ve downloaded this template previously (prior to 1/20/08), I’d recommend downloading it again so you’ve got the latest version. If this is your first time downloading this template from our site, then you can ignore this since you’ll be getting the latest version for free.
2/1/08 – Now includes the rss feed widget, search widget, header tabs link widget, and a header bug fix (thanks to Nick for catching it) . If you want these great new out of the box features you’ll just need to download the template again.
4/17/08 – Fixed the top nav “edit” button so you can now add tabs. Also added FeedIt widget, created demo site, added missing footer feed link, and compressed the css so the template loads faster.
