After you purchased your premade blog template you should have received a download link.
A box will pop up asking you if you want to open the file or save it. Choose “Save File”
Once you download the file you will need to unzip/extract the file in order to access all the files inside.
////Most computers have unzipping software even if you are not aware of it. Once you download your file from Etsy click the file folder to open it, look at the top of the page for a button that says “Extract All Files”. If you have this button or something similar, click it- this will unzip the files.////
If you don’t have unzipping software visit 7zip for a free download.
Now lets install your new premade blog template that you purchased from Blogaholic Designs Etsy Shop:
If your Blogger template states that it is mobile responsibe you can configure that in the step above. Next to “Simple” click the drop down and choose “Custom” Please note: this only applies to templates that state they are mobile responsive. If your template is not mobile responsive it will be best to come back to this setting after uploading your template and choose “No. Show desktop template….”
IMPORTANT: IF YOU GET AN ERROR THAT MEANS YOU ARE TRYING TO UPLOAD THE ENTIRE FILE YOUR PURCHASE CAME WITH. AS STATED ABOVE YOU MUST 1ST EXTRACT THE ZIPPED FILE. THE FILE YOU UPLOAD SHOULD END WITH XML NOT ZIP
