How to Install Blogger XML Template

Are you sick and tired of the usual templates supplied by blogger? Well, you can always go in for those wonderful, amazing customized XML templates available on the internet! Switching over to those xml templates from your current template is really a breeze! You can have it, all up and running in a matter of minutes!

Choose and download the template of you choice to your computer. If the template is in a zip file, then, unzip it and extract it. Next, if you have loads of widgets in your present template you can Save the Widgets before installing the Xml template or if you not care about losing those widgets, just move on to the following steps.

  • Log in to your Blogger dashboard and go to Template> Edit Html.
  • Back up your template by clicking on the "Download Full Template" and save it in your hard drive.(In case something goes wrong ,you will always be able to upload your original template.)
  • To “Upload a template from a file on your hard drive" :Click the Browse button and enter the location of your xml template file.
  • Click Upload .The Html of your new template will now appear in the box below.


If you are using the new template for the first time ,you can click on the Save Template button. But then, if you have some widgets in the old template you will get a message like this:

Let's say that you do not want the existing widgets, then go ahead and click on the “Confirm and Save” button . But, on the other hand, if you want all those widgets or Page Elements then follow this tutorial.

That’s it! Your new template has been uploaded successfully! Have fun changing your templates!:)
