Classic Template for blogger

Good afternoon guys!
Just finish off my lunch and feel like updating my blog but not sure what to write :P
So what to do when you have nothing to write but want to keep your blog update?
Make a tutorial lah :D

So today, I just want to make a tutorial on how to turn your blog template into simple classic template (a.k.a. minima template).

Lately, blogspot has been upgraded and they have added new features like blogger template designer where you can choose any design template provided with its pretty background

So why do I want to change this? The template is pretty much how I like right?
Well sometimes, you just want to tweak the blog a bit, change the background to you liking anytime you want. You can get massive collections of gorgeous background from the web. My favourite of all time is Shabby.

So when you want to have your own choice of background, you need a plain background so your new background won't intertwined with your template. Just like a piece of paper. If you want to start your sketch, you need a blank paper right? :)

Ok. So blogspot used to have this feature where changing the template to minima the easiest way. However, with the new feature, it's been, well, lost. :P

To make your template back to simple minima, classic, go to dashboard > design tab > edit html
 scroll down until the bottom and you will find 'old templates'. click on the 'select layout template'. 

for minima template, tick on the 1st template > minima
and you're done! :)

now you can go and look for those gorgeous background you've been eyeing for for your blog and start making up your blog  :)

Good luck!

Chanced upon your blog, Nice!
Thanks for sharing shabby, I like! Feels like jumping to blogspot right away. I am using wordpress, do you think it can be used in WP? Thanks!

::Ida:: said...

salam mama balqis!

thanks for dropping by :)
blogspot is awesome! u can let ur creativity runs wild!
far as i know, one of the cons of WP is u can't change the background unless u opt for advance user meaning u have to pay for it. or u can just use the template available for wp :)
i did try wp once, but blogspot suits me better :)

u should try~! ;D
