Have you ever wished you could customize your blog’s theme or template? Have you ever had the thought of changing your blogs’ font style, font size and or theme colour? Then I am sure you’re going to love this post.
Well, I was going to publish this post some few days back, but my phone and laptop got stolen. It got stolen due to my carelessness.
So publishing any post or replying to comments was almost impossible at that hellish time. But thank God, I have bought me a brand new laptop and trying to come back on track… Now back to the topic of discussion 🙂
Some days back, a friend was trying to change the structure and color of his blog. He tried but couldn’t achieve what he wanted to do with his blog.
So he came to me and asked how is it possible for a blogger who do not know much about coding to customize his or her blog. I told him, as long as you have the idea of what you want to do and you are smart, changing some few things on your blog won’t be a big deal.
Today, we are going to discuss 4(four) tools that will definitely help you to customize your blog.
Remember that the tools I am about to share with you is only limited based on what you can actually do with it… what I am trying to say is, the limit of these tools are – unlimited 😉
4 Tools for Customizing WordPress Themes and Blogger Template
Without wasting much of our time, let me rush right to my top 4 tools for customizing all kind of WordPress themes and Blogger templates.
The first on my list is none other than;
Firebug is a Firefox add-on made for developers.
I love Firebug because it helps you edit your CSS, HTML of your blog seamlessly. And allow you to find the real code to edit.
Just open the blog you want to edit – open your Firebug and locate where you’d love to edit. Feels simple right?
Guest what? With all the good things this gem can do, Firebug is still 100% free
According to Lynda.com – Adobe Dreamweaver is an application used by web designers and developers to create websites and applications for use across multiple targets – including browsers, devices, and tablets.
Dreamweaver has the power to edit any blogs’ theme without stress, but as long as you have the knowledge of little coding and also, if you know your way around dream weaver.
According to its developer – Instant WordPress is a complete standalone, portable WordPress development environment. It turns any Windows machine into a WordPress development server.
Okay, here is the thing – Many bloggers test their plugins, edit their blogs themes/templates live on their blog. and to be honest with you, that’s bad, why? Simply because you have traffic coming in your blog so it would be bad for them (your traffic) to see your blog messed up.
With the instantWP, you can edit your blog theme or test any plugins using your pc before it goes live on your blog. That way, you won’t irritate your readers when editing your blog 🙂
Forefox developer edition
I had to add this new innovation from Mozilla Firefox, why? This browser is built specifically for developers, so imaging the wide functionality it would have.
According to its developers – Firefox Developer Edition brings your core dev tools together with some powerful new ones that will extend your ability to work across multiple platforms from one place. It’s everything you’re used to, only better.
Don’t worry, because this Firefox is light weight and doesn’t crash as the normal Firefox does
I know that there are still some awesome tools and software or even plugin out there that can help you edit your blog without stress. But I selected these four because I have used them all and they are working wonders.
