How to copy features from websites you like.

Question:
Following is a link to a blog I really like. Landrover Enthusiast. How do I creat the side bar things he has such as "Trip Photos"; "Accessories 4 Your Rover"; etc.? How do I creat titles like he has?

When you see somne features on a website that you like, and will like to copy it, the thing to do is to go to the menu bar, click VIEW > PAGE SOURCE to see the source codes. In this case, this resulted in turning up the following:

<h2 class="sidebar-title">Rover Links</h2>
<ul>

<li><a href="http://www.nettechy.com">Land Rover Adventures</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.sclr.org">Southern California Land Rover</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.deathvalley.com">Death Valley</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.landrover.com">Land Rover</a></li>

<li><a href="http://www.yorksandlancs.com/">Yorks & Lancs Automotive</a></li>

</ul>

<h2 class="sidebar-title">Trip Photos</h2>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://www.nettechy.com">Trip Photos</a>
<li><a href="http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/moss....af,0">Rio De Janeiro</a></li>

<li><a href="http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/moss....dir=/7f3a&.beg=0&.src=ph">Rover Rendezvous 5</a></li>
<li><a href="http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/moss...=19&.src=ph">Rover Rendezvous 5</a></li>

</ul>

To change the title, all you have to do is to substitue, for example, Rover Links in this code <h2 class="sidebar-title">Rover Links</h2> with New Title so that it become <h2 class="sidebar-title">New Title</h2>

and substitute the http://www.nettechy.com in <li><a href="http://www.nettechy.com">Land Rover Adventures</a></li> with http://www.newlink.com. Do this with the other links, and add or delete as required. Then all you have to do is to paste the modified codes into the template in the place where you want them to be.
