Sick and tired of waiting for Blogger to sort out my NavBar troubles, and with about an hour to spare this morning, I decided to build myself a better, stronger, more wonderful NavBar all by myself.

Behold! See the spiffy NavBar at the top of this page! For those of you who don't know, I never implemented the NavBar previously because it kept searching "www.mormolyke.comblog/index.html" [sic]. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to get it to insert a slash between the com and the blog, and besides, far more useful blog search results can be found when searching the entire website rather than just the blog index or even the blog folder (oddly). To get it to work, I had to take the source code for the NavBar, jimmy with the URL inside the code, and insert it directly into my Blogger template rather than just selecting the NavBar option in Blogger. It works! No need for the Google Free Search which I set up this morning.

But better than that, even, I decided to take it one step further and dicked around with it a little more. I took some of the code from the customized Google Free Search and whacked it into the NavBar code, and now the Google search page generated by my NavBar fits my color scheme! Go on, try it! Ahahahaha, isn't it wonderful? Calooh! Callay!

I also made the time on each blog entry link to the post's permanent link. That makes much more sense.

Damn, when I redesign this site, remembering to change all the non-CSS controlled parameters, like the Google customized search and the NavBar, is going to be a pain in the arse.
