How To Install Blogger Template | Blogspot Theme Installation

In this post, I will guide you on How to install a Blogger Template properly

Mobile Settings

We highly recommend that you turn off the default mobile setting on Blogger. We designed a theme that can adapt to all specific screen sizes, so Blogger’s default mobile display is no longer needed.

  • On the Blogger dashboard, click Themes
  • Click on the icon next to the Customize button
  • Select Cellular Settings > Desktop
  • Click Save.

Here is a Screenshot to get a better idea of how to do it.

Install Theme

The easiest way to install a Blogger theme is to upload the .xml file directly:

  • On the Theme menu, click the icon next to the Customize button
  • Select Restore
  • Select the theme you want to install, Upload and check your blog directly by clicking View Blog

Manual Install

Sometimes an error message appears during the theme upload process, this is due to duplicate widget IDs in the theme, so the recommended way to install a customized theme is to copy all the XML code and paste it directly into your blog’s HTML editor.

The disadvantage of this method is that all existing widgets or settings in the previous theme will be replaced with the default widgets of the new theme.

It’s recommended to back up your old theme data before installing the new theme

1. Get the .xml code

Via Google Drive:

  • Open the template folder you bought,
  • Right-click on the template you want to install
  • Select Open with > Text Editor
  • Wait for the newly opened tab to load perfectly
  • Copy all the template code that appears, the easiest way is to press ctrl+A > ctrl+C

Via Notepad:

  • Download the theme file that you purchased via the Google Drive folder
  • Right click > Open with select Notepad
  • Copy all your theme code, press ctrl+A then ctrl+C

2. Changed the previous theme code

The next way is to paste the .xml code that was copied earlier into the HTML editor of the Blogger theme

  • On the Blogger dashboard, click Themes
  • Click on the icon next to the Customize button
  • Click Edit HTML, and you will be directed to the editing page.
  • Replace all code in the previous theme, right-click > Select all(ctrl+A)
  • press ctrl+V to paste all the .xml code
  • Save your theme by clicking the icon at the top right of the HTML editor

Add License key

Many Premium Templates have license encryption, you need to put the license key in the template to activate your template for your domain.

You must get a license key for your blog after payment is successful.

  • On the Blogger dashboard, click Layout
  • Tap on the Pencil icon beside the License key Widget.
  • In the content, add the license key provided by the template owner.

Some Templates don’t have a Layout Widget to insert the key so you need to insert the key through Edit HTML.
