Question: I use Blogger for my teacher blog, but I don't like the "Next Blog" button at the top, because I have no idea what kind of inappropriate blog it may jump to. Can I get rid of it?

The IT Guy says:
Yes, it is possible to make that button go away. From the Blogger dashboard, click the Template button for the blog that you want to change. In the Template section, make sure you have the tab labeled Edit HTML selected. You should see a window with a lot of HTML code in it on the screen. Scroll down just a little bit until you see something that looks like this:

body {

Below this "tag" will be HTML code that sets the appearance of your blog. Click above the body { text and enter this text:

#navbar-iframe {
height: 0px;
visibility: hidden;
display: none;
}

Then select Save Template Changes. That's all there is to it!
