How to Change Blogger Template in New Blogger Interface

Some might use blogger old interface. But the old blogger interface will not be available in future. That means old interface retires.
So I write about ‘How to Change Blogger Template in New Blogger Interface’. Below are the step by step procedures to change the blogger template.
1. First download a new blogger template. Lots of templates are available in internet for free.(update: I have collected list of 100 websites to download free Blogger templates to help you to find a best template.) Download a template which you want. The blogger template you downloaded will be an xml file or text file.
2. Login to blogger.You will get your list of blogs
3. Then go to ‘template’ section as given in below image.
Blogger-Template-Changing
4. Then click ‘Backup/restore’ button which will be at the right top corner.
blogger-backup and restore
5. A lightbox window will open with two options. First one ‘download full template’ is for making a backup of current template and second one ‘upload’ is for choosing a template from your computer and upload it to change the blogger theme.
If you want, you can take backup.
To change the template first click ‘choose’ and browse for the template you download and then click ‘upload’.
blogger-template-upload
That’s all. Your template will be changed.
6. If you want to edit the template you uploaded click ‘edit html’ button.
Blogger-edit-html

7. Edit styles of widgets, body, text etc., and click ‘save template’ button.
Edit HTML










8. If you want to add gadgets, go to ‘layout’ option.
blogger-layout
9. Click ‘add a gadget’ to add a gadget from a list of available gadgets. Arrange them by drag and drop. Don’t forget to save the changes by clicking ‘save arrangement’. blooger-add-gadgets
That’s all. View your blog to see the changes.

One important thing to do:

One thing you must do is backup your blog html gadgets you added in old template and delete them before uploading your new template. After changing template restore them.
Why?

Sometimes after uploading a new template, you can’t find them in gadgets (in Layout). So if you want to delete them, you need to read each and every line of the template code. But this is not so easy. Because the scripts in the html gadgets might be encoded which may be difficult for you to understand.

  10. I used to use the Classic Template. In April, when they forced the new interface on us for a short time, my posted images would push to the left and appear smaller. I found the old dashboard and used that after a couple days. Now that's gone. So, I was forced to change my template. I had backed up my template many times in the past in different places. I thought, even if I use a new Template I could revert back to my old one, if worse comes to worse. So now my blog has everything super spaced out. It's bigger and a bit slower then before. The pictures pop up well. Adding them is a huge pain and the HTML can easily get messed up. THE WORST PART IS MY OLD TEMPLATE DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. If I do try to go back, the blog messes up and get a bunch of numbers on screen. Any attempts to change the blog, even ones were I don't save have effects on the live blog as well. Often while changing this the blog loses all it's links and gadgets. It's horribly scary to use.
    I can't use quick edit tools anymore and the Facebook options have vanished as well. This sucks.

    1. You have to take backup each and every widget manually, remove them (to avoid confusion and errors), upload the new template and restore the widgets. There is no other way as far as I know.
