Another Way to Change Blogger Template Without Deleting Widget

Fyuh, such a long post title. On my last post, I give trick how to change blogger template without deleting widget. There's same main point, that is copy all widget from current blog to new template. Maybe, some of you not familiar with Notepad ++, a lil bit complicated. Here's another way to edit XML file.
  1. Download new xml template
  2. Save to your desktop. Remember, SAVE no need to open. Some mistake is they open xml file in browser of course there will be an error warning, because browser not compatible to open xml file
  3. Create new blog. This is trial blog to edit new xml template
  4. Upload your new template to trial blog. How to ? Open Edit HTML, and then upload downloaded xml file
  5. Open your current blog layout
  6. Go to Edit HTML, copy all widget code between <div id='sidebar'>
  7. Open trial blog layout
  8. Go to Edit HTML, paste to trial blog, all copied widget code. Put it between <div id='sidebar'> too
  9. Save
  10. Download and save full template of trial blog
  11. Upload to your current blog layout, and you get new layout without deleting widget

    ReplyDelete
  33. @BS 88: there's still another template, you can choose it

    yess, it is same. Copy all widget on every section, such as sidebar, mid sidebar. After that step, we can arrange it. The important thing is, it wont be deleted

    you will erase it?
    Humm, what about delete that post, and re-type :D

    hehhehe im sorry, i dont know too, because the other didn't face the problem with this template

    ReplyDelete
  36. got it <3

    awww lovely tips <3

    anyway miss, my template now is using 'sidebar-wrapper' instead of 'sidebar'. Are they different?
    i copied the sidebar-wrapper as if it was sidebar. shall i change the name?
    is there any layout that won't work if i use sidebar-wrapper and not sidebar?

    and what about midsidebar-wrapper?
    i copied it as well tho =)

    ReplyDelete
  37. @fakely:no matter thats sidebar name, no need to change, just all widget code ,wherever it hehe :) i mean maybe there's widget on footer, lower-wrapper, copy all :), you can paste to sidebar. The point is it won't be deleted and you can arrange it later

    ReplyDelete
  38. I tried it and it didn't work ma'am. There was an error said that the xml code wasn't closed properly etc. What's wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  39. @fakely: be carefull to copy, have to copy properly. Do not tick mark on expand widget template

    for an example your sidebar code

    <div id='sidebar-wrapper'>
    <b:section class='sidebar' id='sidebar' preferred='yes'>
    <b:widget id='HTML1' locked='false' title='Search Another Template Here' type='HTML'/>
    <b:widget id='HTML2' locked='false' title='Related Resources' type='HTML'/>
    <b:widget id='HTML11' locked='false' title='Sponsored Links' type='HTML'/>
    <b:widget id='Label2' locked='false' title='Categories' type='Label'/>
    </b:section>
    </div>


    You just have to copy

    <b:widget id='HTML1' locked='false' title='Search Another Template Here' type='HTML'/>
    <b:widget id='HTML2' locked='false' title='Related Resources' type='HTML'/>
    <b:widget id='HTML11' locked='false' title='Sponsored Links' type='HTML'/>
    <b:widget id='Label2' locked='false' title='Categories' type='Label'/>



    that's widget code

  40. Hi! I keep getting the error message, "Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: The element type "b:section" must be terminated by the matching end-tag " whenever I paste and save template. Help? Thanks!

  41. @ny: be carefull to copy, have to copy properly. Do not tick mark on expand widget template
