Yesterday, we wrote about the “Blogger Template Designer“, a newly added feature to the Blogger in Draft of the popular blogging site the “Blogger“. Blogger Template Designer includes 15 customizable templates with great patterns, one, two, and three column layouts along with hundreds of background images and patterns from iStockphoto.

You can try this Blogger Template Designer by logging into the Blogger in Draft through http://draft.blogger.com/ and clicking on the blogs “Layout” link that proceeds to the Layout tab. This tab will feature a link to the Template Designer located at the end of the row of sub-tabs. Template Designer tab allows you to have live previews of the new templates on your blog and once satisfied with look and feel you can publish it to the world by simply clicking on the “Apply to Blog”. Template Designer enables users to backup their existing templates. If you are viewing a “Template” link instead of “Layout”, then it seems that you are in Classic format and you need to switch to the Layouts before trying out the Template Designer.

Here are few tips provided by the Blogger Team to create impressive blogs:

  • Use Background Panel’s “Main Color theme” for quickly matching all your links and background image at once.
  • Several gadgets can be fitted in to the blog using the three-column footer.
  • Customize the tabs using the unique tab designs available for all of the new templates.
  • Use the “transparency page curl” and background image picker to see the patterns to be used in your blog.
  • Edit and add your authorship or copyright information in your blog using the “Attribution gadget”.

Bloggers Template Designer does not support Internet Explorer 6 and hence all the bloggers and readers utilizing IE6 needs to update for the latest version in order to access this feature. Update yourself with the latest IE and rejoice the customizable Bloggers in Draft using the “Blogger Template Designer”. Happy Blogging!
