Okay, I'm getting r-e-a-l-l-y irritated here. In a futile attempt to make my minimalist blog seem a little more sophisticated, I tried to add a "gadget" to the poor thing. I really, really want to have a "My Blog List" on the sidebar. So I started clicking here and there, on this and that, and found a page entitled, "Add and Arrange Page Elements." Then I clicked on "Add a Gadget," which presented me with a list that included something called "Blog List," and I thought, AH-HA! After a great deal of teeth-gritting and sweating, I finally managed to add 18 blog titles to the thing. I clicked on "Save" and thought, naively, that my list would magically appear on my blog.

YEAH-FUCKING-RIGHT! GRRRRRRRRRR! For once in my life, I allowed myself to be a teensy bit optimistic, and what do I get? Crushed like a goddamned bug!

Excuse me while I go sulk.

I see the problem, not enough wine. Two or more glasses is usually enough. A full bottle and everything works just dandy.

You're lucky, Z.
Blogrolls are a cesspit of vipers to manage...

Did you transfer your template over to a new template?

If so, you should be able to drag and drop the page elements as well as create a new one, eh?

When you create a new one, there are options. A poll, html code, blogroll, etc.

Where are you getting stuck mate?
