How to Use Custom Themes in Blogger

Custom Themes in Blogger

Blogger provides its own collection of templates to embellish your blog, but the choice is relatively scanty in number. But you can customize your blog with a stylish third party theme/template. In order to do this you have to follow several simple steps:

Step 1.

Download your preferred template. Over the internet a number of websites, including the following share free Blogger templates: 

Step 2.

Usually templates are distributed in compressed file format (winzip, winrar, etc.). Make sure that you have extracted the XML template.

Step 3.

Log in to your Blogger dashboard and go to Layout > Edit HTML

Step 4.

Make certain that you have backed up the old template for its future restoration. In order to do this, click on the download full template link and save the file as .XML format to your hard drive.

Step 5.

Beneath the download full template click the Browse button and locate the XML file of your theme. Press upload.


When the upload is being completed, the HTML of your new template will now appear in the textbox below. Then click the button entitled Confirm and Save. Now view your blog and enjoy the new custom look.

Note: In some cases you may have to upload few images and java script files to third party file sharing hosts (such as,, ) and enter their paths in the XML file. In such cases please don’t install the template until you have read the instruction provided by the theme designer.
