Log into your Blogger account and click on the ‘Template’ tab
(Backup Step) Once there, click on the ‘Backup/Restore’ button in the top right area.
Before continuing, download your current template and save it somewhere on your computer (for backup). You do not need to use this file but it’s wise to keep it incase you wish to revert to a previous design at a later date. Then this is done, browse your computer for the new template.xml file and upload it.
That’s it! You should see your new template load in the small preview window on the template page. Visit your blog to check!
Some important points:
- You must upload the template.xml file. Uploading any other kind of file will not work!
- All downloads from this site are zipped (.zip) – this folder must be unzipped before you upload! The folder contains a few different files. Trying to upload the zip folder will not work!
