Please know that I test every template I offer and I know they all install correctly.
I offer my templates for download in a zipped (ie: .zip) folder. You will have to unzip this before installing as trying to upload a zip folder instead of a template file (.xml) will not work!

At the top of this page it says "Backup/Restore Template" and advises you to download your current template (a good idea just incase something weird happens and you want to re-install your old template).
The next step is to upload the yummylolly.com template by "browsing" your computer for the .xml file that you downloaded and clicking on "upload".

When you upload a template to your blog now, it comes up with a prompt as below:
The biggest issue you'll probably have is not reading these instructions properly - please check this twice before contacting me.
OK - as I have mentioned above, the templates do install. I test them!
Sometimes Blogger encounters an error (yes, this happens to me sometimes) but it has nothing to do with the template as is, in fact, a temporary error with Blogger. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen. Wait a few hours and try again - or try another browser. This usually works for me. If you're having troubles still (after the confirmation to delete widgets ---> READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS)
The issue might be with the way your widgets are labelled. Click here for detailed instructions on how to fix this issue.
UPDATE - MARCH 2009
I'm afraid I am turning comments off this post because I get too many comments saying that you cannot get the template to work when I know that 99% of problems can be remedied by the above steps! I simpley do not have time to respond to individual questions so please go to the BLOGGER HELP FORUMS if you need assistance with technical errors.
Thanks and sorry!
