Hello. For some reason, whenever I rety to edit the background from my template, it never shows onto the real site, but it works for the preview. Could you tell me how to get this to work onto the actual site? The same happens when I tried to change the sidebar, and tried to upload a Flickr image slideshow below the header.
Could you help? My blog is:

http://the-turks.blogspot.com

Thanks so much!

Awesome blog seriously!

Love the blog. I am designing a blog for my family and like the look of your templates but would like to be able to change the fonts. Know very little HTML and was wondering if you could let me know how to do this.

I am trying to edit my logo, but have no success.
Any Idea how do I add my own logo picture?
Thanks

I'm copying and pasting the code into my template box exactly as the directions say, but then when my blog comes up, it doesn't look quite the same as the demo I viewed on this site. For example, when I try the Magic Paper, none of the cool images or fonts show up, it's just my content against a brown screen. Is there something else I need to do?

Thanks!! These templates look great!

I did exactly as you said and now my blog is all gone : ( What did I do wrong?

I love the templates, but could someone tell me how to fix the following problem: there are many of the templates that, after cutting and pasting and republishing are covering up some of my words and/or bullets and pics. It have found that if I point to the area of the screen where the words would be, and drag, I see that the words are there, but just cant be seen on the page because it looks like they are another color or something. Thanks for your help

I have been visiting this site for the longest time, I love your template designs. Will be posting it at my 'howtoblogformoney' blog to recommend my ex-students to drop by too. :)

I like the template design for 'Curves in Blue and Red". Nice work. However, when I apply either to my blog, I lose the Title Bar? Seems to be hidden behind the 'hidden' navbar?!

See http://www.topographica.blogspot.com/

Dear Sir,
Will someone help me out here...this is getting very frustrating.
when i started my blog, it was fine. Then after i posted some comments...my profile, the links and the archive bit moved to the bottom of the page. I want the profile, links,and archive bit at the top right hand side of the page. It is in fact on the bottom right hand side of the page undernearth all the posts i posted.
Please tell me how i can keep that section on the top right of the page, level with with the Latest Post.
Thank you

Hi,

I love your designs, they are just right, not too cluttered but not boring either. I would like to use some of your templates but they do not display properly in Firefox (1.5.0.6), although they look fine in IE. Is there a workaround for this or are your templates simply not designed for Firefox?

You can reply to mcv_photo@yahoo.co.uk.
Many thanks in advance, great work.

I have a problem using your templates, and I want them real bad. They're better than what blogger offers.

OK, I updated my template, using one of the default blogger beta templates, then I click "edit HTML". I copy and paste your codes, overwriting all of the default template codes. However when I try to save it, I get an error, which says:
"Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The content of elements must consist of well-formed character data or markup."

Any idea what I did wrong? Thanks.

Big thanks from your fellow blogger

Hi!

I've been trying to change my template and it's impossible to me. The same error message appears: "The content of elements must consist of well-formed character data or markup." Can you please help me? Answer me as soon as possible, please, creating a blog is one of my purposes for the new year!

Thanks

I set up a new site recently at www.freshlegal.com. Would love to hear your thoughts.

Same problem as the people posting before me... Blogger complains that there are XML problems

When I copy Paste it, it says
--------
We were unable to save your template
Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.

Hi,

I have my blog website http://surajnagar-lifeisbeautiful.blogspot.com/
I tried changing to a different template but getting the error message "We were unable to save your template
Please correct the error below and submit your template again.
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure that all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The element type "head" must be terminated by the matching end-tag"". If I go to Classic Template then the drag and drop feature of the new Blogger won't work. It's a disadvantage. Can anyone know how to keep the new blogger and change the template without getting the above error message?

Hi,

I think this template works only for old blogger and not new blogger which google came out of beta. What we need is XML template for the new blogger version.

i get this messege :::

Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The entity "nbsp" was referenced, but not declared.

error processing research :::

~p align="center"~ ~/p~
-------------------^

i change the symbol < > with ~ because tags is not allowed here

Like this site, check out my blog, Iam hoping to change its template with one of these :)

Ojo con el Xml error message

Antes de copiar y pegar el codigo debemos darle un click a la opcion:
"Recuperar la plantilla clásica"
q tiene un link a
"http://www2.blogger.com/classic-template.do"
esto se encuentra dentro:
panel de control-> Diseño -> Plantilla-> Edición de HTML

justamente debajo de "Guardar plantilla"

Y listo. ahora si se puede pegar el codigo no habra error xml

para restaurar la opcion de plantilla podeis hacerlo desde el panel de control

saludos cordiales

Now that I've switched to the NEW Blogger, that little piece of code doesn't work, or else I can't figure out where to put it in the template html so that it does.

Can you help?

Hi! I use PHOTOBLOG template from BLOGGER TEMPLATES, but when I switched to the NEW BLOGGER, the comments section do not work. Is this a problem with that specific template?

Could you please indicate me where to ask, if you do not know?

thank you in advance.

Ok, I have a problem. I'm using blogger on my own domain name and it seems to only let me use the basic templates. I've tried to copy and paste in the html from templates I found here but when I preview them, they come out all scrambled. My blog is thepetrifiedchicken.com. Right now I'm using the template, Scribe, but I'd like to be able to really customize my site but still have the blogger engine behind it. Has anyone had the same problem with their own domain using blogger?

Hi - To modify this to work, follow these steps:

Download the Zip file. Extract everything. Open 3 files so you can play with the code in Dreamweaver.

In the HTML header, remove the ref which links to the online style sheet.

Copy both style sheets and paste the code into the HTML document. Be sure to modify your STYLE tags properly.

Copy the whole thing and paste it into Blogger.

For CSS tips, visit W3C.org.
