Regular readers of this blog will both notice that there have been some subtle changes. Thanks to Keefieboy for pointing me at the new Blogger template.

The system for adding Gadgets looked easy - right up to the point when I tried to reinstall the ClustrMaps map. I tried and tried to write the widget, but the HTML code wouldn't play. This despite my having cut and pasted the entire template of the old blog on to a text file first. Getting the disclaimer footer displayed at the bottom of the page was easy; why was the ClustrMap being so obstinate?

Eventually I discovered the correct Add A Gadget: One of them is for inserting Java/HTML. After pasting the HTML into there, the rest was easy.

Just wanted to 'beam in' to say

a) thanks for persevering to get the ClustrMaps HTML code (back) into your blog 'sidebar'

b) in fact, we do already provide very detailed step-by-step instructions complete with screen snapshots showing the 'Add a gadget' technique on our ClustrMaps-on-Blogger instruction page.

c) in any event, to show our appreciation for your determination, we have just upgraded you for free to a ClustrMaps+ account (better zoomed-in maps, no ads). This should take effect over the next 24 hours.

Best wishes, and thanks for using ClustrMaps!
