It's Retro Baby! - free xml template

OK, this is a simple but sweet retro template, perhaps it should be called "minimalist retro" or "simple retro" - anyway, you get the drift I hope. It's just simple and cute... with navigation bar. You can find how to add the links within the code or you can read the info below.
  1. Log into blogger. Click on "EDIT HTML"

  2. Scroll down the large box of code until you see the following (it's near the end)

    <li><a href="'/'">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="'#'">Link Here</a></li>
    <li><a href="'#'">Link Here</a></li>
    <li><a href="'#'">Link Here</a></li>
To add your own links:
replace the "#" symbol with your link URL and then edit the "Link Here" text to be the name of your link (see colour coding below). So if you wanted to put a link back to me, this is what you'd change one of the lines to be:

<li><a href="'http://www.yummylolly.com'">Yummy Lolly</a></li>

You can remove or add any lines as you wish. You just have to add them before the </ul> code.
Let me know if you have any questions.

The design works with "new" blogger - ie: it's an XML template. Please ensure that you backup your widget data, as installing a new template will wipe/erase your current widget content.
