Now lets install your new premade blog template:
Before getting Started. Purchase your template and download your zip file.
BD Web Studio Direct Purchase: If you purchased from our website this will be in your email or in your account if you made one.
Etsy Buyers: this file can be download from your top navigation menu. Go to “you” and then “PurchaSes/Reviews”
Once you download the file folder you will need to unzip/extract the file folder in order to access all the files inside. DO NOT upload the entire folder you downloaded or you will get an error.
Also do not open the xml file it has to be directly uploaded to blogger – see below.
If you need help with extracting see here.
Step 1. Login to Blogger. If you have multiple blogs choose the blog you would like to edit. Then click on “Template” from the dashboard over on the left. Next click drop down arrow by the orange “Customize” button over on the right. From the dropdown choose “Restore”.
Step 2. Click “Upload”. Your file manager will open. Locate the file ending in XML. If you do not see this file be sure you extracted the zip file you downloaded after purchase. The zip file can not be directly uploaded.
Step 3. Set up mobile view. From the template page click the orange “Customize” button again. From the drop down choose “mobile settings”. Click “No. Show desktop view…..” and then click the orange “save” button. This will configure the site to display a beautiful custom responsive view from mobile devices and not Bloggers standard mobile view.
