4. There you will find 15 new templates to choose from . You can see the Live Preview there.

5. The Template designer comes with a cool set of customizers.There are plenty of images to choose from. You can change the layout(1 column, 2 column etc) and you can change almost everything on the template.

You can adjust the Width of the Columns by using simple Sliders and adjust the colours fonts etc.

  16. Aneesh,
    I want to change template to my old blog (3 years completed),if i change template with Template Designer can i loose any data .

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Quality - Changing The template wont affect the posts or comments present on your blog. But as expected, you will loose your old template and any customizations that you had made to the template.

  19. I was in talks with a designer to build me a new blog to my exact specifications but instead, with the new tools, I got exactly what I wanted with 5 minutes of brainless clicking. Thank you, Blogger!

  20. Aneesh, I want to change Footer Layout for my old blog with Blogger Template Designer but i am seeing this message there " This template does not allow for layout customizations.Rearrange your gadgets by dragging them to dotted sections in the preview below.Go to Layout > Page Elements in Blogger to add, remove, or edit gadgets." Any Idea its my blog,( http://uniquecoolwallpapers.blogspot.com/ ) THANKS .

  21. @Quality - if you need to adjust the width and other settings, then you will have to switch to a new template(from the 15 provided by blogger)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aneesh, any way to make the width of a blog in the new template design wider than the 1000px currently on offer? Cheers for any advice.

  24. Why can I have the tools like you have right now? Do I have to publish by a domain? Is there anything I can do about it?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Maybe I'm lucky, it doesn't show on my Layout options. I know I tried to change the template a month ago and it screwed everything up. I was really worried I couldn't get it back, but finally did.

  27. I've tried this on a test blog and using the template designer erases any custom code you've added to the main HTML code(Google Analytics, custom widgets).

    Is there a way to preserve my custom code and get the new layouts at the same time? Or do I need to add them manually?

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Catastrophic - yes you will loose any mods done by you and so you will have to add them manually :). Hope that issues like these will get fixed when the designer comes out of Draft.
