More details on J blogging

sleepy

current mood: sleepy

Yikes! Lots and lots of pictures for the J blogging site. ^^; Not yet covered (superficially) are trackbacks, communities, blog friends, mo-blog, and tools onward. I still might need to look at some of the more common plug-ins in greater detail for people (and me) to set them. ^^;


Anyhow, starting from here you'll find pictures (in order) for the blog settings (7)

blocking/blacklisting visitors (1)

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/0004a40b


and miscellaneous functions (2). I haven't translated the mobile blogging (mo-blog) function as I'm not sure if anyone's interested in it. (I'm not sure how accurate I'd be since I'm not familiar with how it's done. ^^;

Next is blog visitors. You automatically track FC2 visitors if they're logged in. (Setting can be changed.)

And blog clap.

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/0004rp3x


Your hourly clap stats (might be interesting if you're a really busy site).

Categories - tags by any other name

Setting your templates

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/0004zgzd

You can also edit the layout / CSS yourself

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/000501x9


Or if you're like me, you can find an official template to use

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/00053a65


Or, like another blog I've set up there, you can drown in the myriad of user submitted templates. My other blog (mostly for testing) uses Flash if I'm not mistaken. ^_^

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/00052fgx


Then there are plug-ins for your blog.

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/00054zbh

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/0005545s


Again, you can use official plug-ins

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/000561gk

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/00057f01

http://pics.livejournal.com/kagedreams/pic/00058x4x


Or you can use user-submitted plug-ins

Strangely located in this massive list is the page for editing previous posts.

As well as a clean copy of the left menu bar:

If I've missed something or if there's a problem with any of the shots, let me know. ^_^

I think one of the main things to get done still is file ULing. That way you can UL your icons and add them to the start of your post if you want to have some form of iconing. ^^; I tried it out on my blog and I'll admit, it's a bit tricksy to figure out exactly how much space to leave around the image, but it's not too involved comparatively. ^_^

Whoops! Getting late now. Bedtime. :P (Hopefully there wont' be too many more of these posts to go. ^^; If anyone wants to set up a blog on fc2, but would like some help, feel free to yell. ^_^

*yell* Just kidding. =P

O.O Shadow's been a busy bee. Or bunny, seeing as Easter is tomorrow. XD

Happy Easter to you and yours.

Must be bunny especially since I'm using the Telus bunny for an icon over there. :P

Rin

I so don't have the energy this weekend, but I might be interested in trying to set one up at some point. ^^ (Still not abandoning LJ, but you never know...)

*laughs* No worries. I like having options. And I'll openly admit that, right now, I'm in love with the eye candy. :P (I just got a note that I have a free Xanga Premium trial, so I might try that out and see what that offers. It'll also give me a bit of incentive to actually look more closely at that site as well.)

In any case, I figure if people want to look at fc2 because of me, I should at least provide enough tools for them to do so effectively. ^_^

If I get brave enough to try it, I'll direct my puppy eyes at you. ^_-

can't brain today maker unknown

I want you to come and set it up for me.

I'll give you tea.

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: March 22nd, 2008 07:21 pm (UTC)

The tea I'll definitely take, but set up will take both of us. ^_^ (Unless you mean *literally* come and set it up, but... don't you guys still have massive amounts of white stuff?? And no kitty fur in tea, please. :P )

Give me a shout with the email address you want me to use to set it up with. The first step requires authentication of your address, so just forward that mail and a list of possible user names to me and I'll set it up for you. ^_^ Once your account's been made and set up, I can help you customise it without having to literally be in your account. ^_^

I will say this, it's worth taking a look around and seeing what else is out there and get a little perspective. (BTW, if you go through with it, would it be okay for me to screencap your blog's front page for use in the manual I've been creating? I noticed something when Heather created her account and I think it was there when I created mine as well. It's about the account's sponsors. [It is a free account after all.] If I'm not mistaken, if you *don't* write to the journal for >1 month, your sponsors' ad shows on your blog (as a text entry). As soon as you post again, that post disappears.)

Schrodinger's cat (noldo_icons)

*hides* I was being a big baby and did literally mean "come here and do it". *is ashamed*

But there are kitties and tea and yarn and cupcakes! (Okay, the cupcakes are currently "were cupcakes", but the cupcake store [yes, entire store devoted to cupcake] is walking distance from here.)

*laughs* Going out over there... would take quite a bit longer to achieve. ^^;

The cupcakes are entirely and most definitely not a lie. *smug*

Toronto - Stained by this town

So, just to recap, in walking distance from Ginlandia:

Chocolaterie
Pâtisserie
Cake shoppe
2 Gelato shoppes

and now

Cupcake shoppe

(There's even technically a yarn shoppe, but it's just a Mary Maxim, so I don't really count it.)

Are you sure you don't want to come set this up for me in person? ^_~

*sigh* Now she tells me. It's a bit late to go out and do it in person now. >.<;; That is one cruel, cruel list of goodies within walking distance, young lady! *cry*
