I'M SO BUMMED!

I've tried so many times to post a new layout to my blog site and I get through ALL the steps easily until I copy the code and click quick post. And then it says failed to login. It just won't put it over into my blog site. I went through all this with Desert Rose one whole evening....(don't want to bother her again.) Everything seems to be working well except that last step! I am picking one from "Webfetti" called Wood and Doodle and I'm picking it in the LAYOUT format, and I'm clicking on Blogger, not website before quick posting....I think I have all the steps covered....WHY won't it work for me? Can anyone think of something I'm missing?

  2. Hello Betsy,

    I don't know if I can help with the Webfetti layout, but I have some other suggestions for you. I sent you an email. I hope it helps you out and you find something!

  3. Hello, it's me again. I just had a brain surge! It dawned on me that you aren't using the right template. You need to go into your settings and change your template to MINIMA before you can do anything. Right now you are using a blogger template, I think, by another name. I know they give you the option to start off with several different templates. This may be your problem. Make sure you change it to Minima and then save it. You can also preview it before you save if you want to check it out. It just makes the background white so you can add in whatever layout,or background. I think you can choose a regular Minima template or a lefty template, which moves your side column to the left. You can do the stretch too (like Desert Rose), but it severely limits what options you have for backgrounds. Hope this helps and is not too confusing!

  5. Sorry, it's gettin late and I keep screwing up!
    I checked your template and you are using the wrong one so you need to swap it over. I was wrong about how to get there , you go to your dashboard, then layout (NOT SETTINGS), there will be the place that tells you to get to the change template spot. Good Luck with your changes!

  6. I was so going to tell you that you needed to change your template! But I always second guess myself on this kind of thing, I have actually been through this before. Minima template! It works! Good luck!

  7. Yes, I think those fancy schmancy layouts only can be used w/the minima. I'm pretty plain jane boring white background (our own J is not boring nor plain, just to make that clear!! :) Hope you get it figured out, it's not the end, blogging can be full of technical frustrations at times.....we've all been there! :)
