Grab My Code!

Hello! I'm DaBomb from You are viewing a live demo of a modified Blogger/Blogspot Minima template with  three columns as coded by me! This template is designed to work well with an array of gorgeous blog backgrounds by the Background Fairy!  Just like her designs, this template is free to download!

I coded an additional column in this template myself.  Here are the specifications of this template's built-in features:
  • The template is 880 px wide with the main column coded to 440px and two side columns coded to 185px. Just like a great pair of jeans, this template also comes in "W-I-D-E" and  "Standard" widths however these alternative sizes currently do not support the Background Fairy's designs.
  • An additional area for adding gadgets just below the banner. The translation menu above is a perfect example. Use this for static (sticky) notes, photos, extra menu bars, widgets, polls, etc.
  • Peek-a-boo navigation bar (optional) designed to avoid its interference with your blog's design while simultaneously preserving its functionality. (Click here for instructions on how to replace the navbar if you prefer that it appear in your blog).
  • Numbered  comments! Great for contests! (Note: be sure to "keep" widgets when asked in the pop-up window upon importing this template for numbered comments to work correctly.
  • If you wish to revert to the color scheme of the original Minima template simply follow: Dashboard ➔ Layout ➔ Fonts and Colors. In the middle column next to mosaic of colors is a button that says "Revert to template default". Press it and voilà!

Important Update

If you are incorporating one of the Background Fairy's gorgeous 3 column backgrounds, please use this widget instead of the one provided by the Background Fairy.

Just insert the .jpg URL in the widget from the Background fairy and put it where it's highlighted below.

For some reason, if you fail to do this the columns get a little whacked after installation and your blog will be crooked!

<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url(""); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }
<div style="border: 0px none; left: 0px; position: absolute; top: 30px;">
<a href="" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="" /></a></div>
