Blogger rant

[Now Listening to - Depeche Mode - Behind the Wheel/Route 66]

Ok, I guess I'll follow the category hack given by the Blogger FAQ, namely make each category into a seperate blog. It kinda sucks as a solution and you can't show messages across categories, but what the hell its something at least.

Blogger needs to seriously consider adding in some much needed functionality. I cant imagine what they were smoking when they left out Categories, Comment Boxes, Trackbacks, Photo uploading.

To be fair to them, it is a free service after all, and you cant expect all the priviledges you get when hosting your own scripts on a proper server. Besides, they started out when much of these features were available even in custom blogs scripts. However, much of the blogging world has moved on ahead, and they should seriously think about including at least some of this functionality.

Template changes

Been making some modifications to the template, just for the heck of it. Hoping that if I can understand this properly, then I can add some cool stuff to my posts. So far its working out really nicely

How the heck do you add a comment box ? And how do you create categories in blogger ? Don't tell me it can't be done...

OK, the comment box problem has been solved, though I'm pretty sure there is a more elegant solution than linking to an off-site script. About the categories, the Blogger FAQ has this to say -

Does Blogger support categories?

No, Blogger does not have categories.

Well, thats that I suppose. I'll probably have to think of some hack solution, similar to the one used for the comments
