|Original New Blogger Instructions|
|Customize Design : |
To Upgrade, look for the tab beneath "Template" that says "Customize Design" and click on it to select a new template.
|My Version Of Instructions|
1. Click on "Customize" in the Navbar above your blog.
2. You'll see some instructions that terminate with "Learn more about Blogger Layouts customization".
3. The last few words of that line is supposed to be a link that you can click on to proceed. If it doesn't act as a link, use the Refresh button and clear your cache and cookies to correct it!
If you have been used to a customized template, the system will save a copy of your current template. You will be stuck with this new template until you can re-customize it, bit by bit. You CANNOT replace the New template with your Classic template with Copy and Paste. They are incompatible. However, if at length you cannot stand New Blogger, you can REVERT to the Classic template. But you cannot leave the New Blogger servers nor can you refuse to migrate to them when advised to do so. If you are a new blogger, you likely started out in Layout mode and are better off there, though it is possible to change to a Classic template.
