Backing up the Blogger templateIt is important to always backup the template, especially if you do a lot of customization. To backup the template, sign into Dashboard, select the blog, click the TEMPLATE tab, and highlight all the text in the template editor (ctrl+A). Right-click on the mouse and select copy. Click the START button at the bottom left of the page, scroll to PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > NOTEPAD and click on NOTEPAD to open it. Then paste it into Notepad (right-click+paste) and save it under a suitable file name, for example blognameDate, preferably in a folder specially for template backups.
Changing to a new templateAfter you have pasted the current template into Notepad and saved, under the TEMPLATE tab, click PICK NEW and select a new template.On the other hand, if you are changing to a non-standard Blogger template (downloaded from website elsewhere), the in the above step, instead of right-clicking on the mouse and select copy, select cut instead, then in another tab or window where you have the new template, copy the new template, go back to the Blogger post editor, right-click inside the now blank post editor window and select paste. Click PREVIEW and if you are satisfied, click PUBLISH.
