Today i will show you how to add navigation links just below your blogs header like mine above and it depends what template you are using but it will fit most so always use a test blog before you apply it to your current blog as I'm not responsible if you mess your template up and there is lots of different styles you could have but I'm going to show you how to add a simple set of navigation links so first we need to copy the following CSS code



/* navigation links css code
----------------------------------------------- */
#topnav {
height:40px;
}
#topnav ul {
float:left;
width:100%;
padding:0;
margin:0;
list-style-type:none;
}
#topnav a {
padding:3px 7px 3px 7px;
float:left;
text-decoration:none;
color:#000;
margin:9px 10px 0 0;
}
#topnav a:hover {
color:#666;
}
#topnav li {
display:inline
}


Now paste it like i have done just below the closing skin tag



Now you need to copy the following XHTML code changing the red parts to where ever you are pointing your links to. The first part with the / points to your blogs homepage



<div id='topnav'>
<ul>
<li><a href='/'>Home</a></li>
<li><a href='#'>Contact</a></li>
<li><a href='#'>Link 3</a></li>
<li><a href='#'>Link 4</a></li>

add a space between header and post

today I'm going to show you how you can create some space in between the header and the post so i recommend you use a new blog until you understand how this works then you could apply it to your current blog as I'm not responsible if you mess your template up now it depends what template you have but most of them already have this bit of code so you will need to make sure you have the following code



if you cant find it on your template don't worry just add it after the header like i have done above and make sure you add a closing div tag at the bottom like below



now you need to look for the following CSS code again it depends what template you have if you cant find it you will need to add it but without the padding:0 16px; value



once you have found it or added it you need to add the highlighted code to the content-wrapper you just found or added and you can change the 50px value to whatever you want it depends how much space you want between the blogs header and the post



once done preview your template before saving to see the space you just created then save or change the 50px value if you need more or less space

now click that and you will see the following image browse for the image you would like to add as the blogs header it can be on your computer or hosted on another server



Now if you would like to add it the other way go to the edit html tab and find the following CSS code it depends what template you have this is based on the one from my previous tutorial which can be found HERE.



and add the code Ive highlighted below of course change the URL to where ever you have the image hosted also you may need to change the height and width depends what size your image is and you may need to optimize it for the web so your site loads faster



so now you know how to add an image to the blogs header

UPDATE: i have notice lots of people's blogs header has shrunk i have managed to come up with a fix which works for some depends what template you have first make sure you download a copy of your template next add the following CSS code you may need to alter the height and width to whatever you need



#Header1_headerimg {
width:100%;
height:95px;
text-align:center;

Hiding the navbar

Note: This is for users publishing via FTP Only

i am writing this post for one of my friends over at blogcatalogue who has got his own domain name and would like to know how to remove the navbar (it does not completely remove it but hides it)
which is at the top of all freely-hosted blogspot blogs so this is for people who have their own domain name although it works even if you don't have your own domain name but its against blogger Terms of Service (TOS) YOU'VE BEEN WARNED read more about the navbar HERE im not responsible if you remove it and breach the (TOS) like i said it's only for those who have their own domain name so I'd rather leave mine up so here's the code you need to add it anywhere in between the head tags just after the body CSS code.



#navbar{
display:none;
}


and for all blogspot users who would like to push their site futher down the page so that it doesn't hit the navbar which is at the top of the page add the following code in between the head tags just after the body CSS code you could change the value which is currently set at 20px to 30px or less depends how far you need to push it.



#navbar-iframe {
margin:0 0 20px 0;
}
