Blogger's NEWTemplate Designer


Blogger has launched 15 new, customizable templates that come in one, two and three column designs. The best part is that Blogger Template Designer that gives you control of the look and feel of your template and you don't have to mess around with the template's code.

Here is a short video the Blogger team posted to YouTube to give you an idea of what you can do with your template. You can read more about the new templates and features at Blogger in Draft. This is pretty amazing!

  2. Jenn,

    How do you mean? When you log into draft.blogger.com to play with the template designer just click the style of the template you like then click tabs and buttons to customize it.

  3. It's been long overdue hasn't it? But most welcome all the same :)

    I've just had a quick play and note that inevitably there are some glitches that need ironing out before this option migrates out of Draft mode eg:

    Anyone using the Link Within widget may have problems with some of the layouts and options, particularly in 3-column mode. Also if you already have modified an existing template into a 3-column one, the new templates swap the sidebar columns around. The latter problem can be easily remedied in the short term by dragging and dropping the gadgets back into their old positions if so desired. I haven't worked out the solution for the Link Within problem yet.

    Having being burnt by using Pages in Draft mode, I think I'll wait until this goes live properly this time even though I'm itching to use some of the new templates and features...
