question about blog template

Since I gave up on learning HTML and other programming stuff years ago, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I was wondering how I can add a sidebar for links? Any help would be appreciated. Also, if anyone has a suggestion for a better title, that would be of great help as well.

Hey its dave,

You can use frames or tables to make a side bar.
Tables give you a cleaner look, just make a big table with two columns, one for the side bar, and one for content.

A good place to start is www.htmlgoodies.com

Another possibility--if you want to keep the same template--is to simply copy the format of your "previous posts" section in your Blog template and paste the format directly under it to create a links section in your present "sidebar." Once you have that setup, you can easily add links by changing the template, or use a service like furl.net or blogroller.com.

hey its dave again,

Search for the line:
<h2 class="sidebar-title">Previous Posts</h2>
Below that is a <ul></ul> section.
Paste this below the </ul> tag:

<h2 class="sidebar-title">Links</h2>
<ul id="recently">
<li><a href="http://link1">Link 1</a></li>
<li><a href="http://link2">Link 2</a></li>
</ul>

You can copy the <li></li> pairs to get more links.
I tried it on my computer and it worked.
