A Quick Question - help needed!

I've been wondering recently about changing this blog from the template format to the layout format. As I've been blogging here since March 2005 I'm still on the template format but I'm noticing more and more what the layout format has to offer. There are so many pretty blogs around at the moment with lots of lovely additions that I can't put on mine because I'm not on the layout format. I also have some followers whom I can't show on this blog. When I try to add them the instructions are to change to the layout format but it says that in doing so I may lose some changes. I'm struggling to understand what that means and fearful that if I press the key to change I may loose everything. The other alternative is to start a new blog but I don't really want to do that as I want to keep this one all together. Has anyone changed from the template to the layout format and if so - how did it go and what, if anything, did you lose along the way? I'd really like some advice on this.


  1. Hi Rosie. When I changed my template I went to LAYOUT then I went to CHOOSE NEW TEMPLATE. There are a variety of options for you to try. Click on the template of your choice and click PREVIEW TEMPLATE. You can then see what your blog would look like were you to change it. If you are happy with the template you have chosen then click onto SAVE TEMPLATE. I hope this helps.

  2. Thanks, Simone, I may, if you can preview what it will be like, try to change to the newer layout format as I find on my other blog it is easier to just put in the links and drag and move them around rather than having to write them in the template in html code as I struggle with this:)

  3. I was going to suggest that too.I am always messing about and previewing mine as blogger offers all those choices.
    I'd love to be able to do more than that but like you,HTML code leaves me in a tizz!
    Have a great time ;-)
