  1. Backup

    The installation is pretty straightforward, but if you encounter any problems, or simply would rather have us do it for you, contact us here.


    It is important to start with a backup. In case anything goes wrong – you’ll be able to quickly go back to the starting point.

    Go to your blog’s Template settings and click the Backup/Restore button on the top right corner of the screen.


    Next, choose Download full template and choose where to save your backup file.


    Whenever you need to restore your backup, simply follow the instructions for uploading the template, but use your backup file instead of your backup file.

  2. Upload the template

    Go to your blog’s Template settings and click the Backup/Restore button on the top right corner of the screen.



    Next, click Choose file and point to the .xml template file that you received from Etsy, then click Upload.

    Important! – you may need to unzip the file first, as it’s sent as a .zip file.


  3. Responsive template

    The template is responsive, but to make sure that Blogger is not spoiling it up with some mobile view you need to set it up first.

    To do that, go to Template page in your dashboard and click the cog icon below the mobile view:


    And select the option: No. Show desktop template on mobile devices.


    Click Save and you’re done here!

  4. Circle shaped profile picture

    The About Me section of your template takes the photo from your Blogger profile. That means that to change or add your photo you need to go to your Blogger profile.

    To do that click on your name in the upper right corner:profile_1


    When the box with options appears, click on Blogger profile:


    On the profile page find, click Edit profile button in the upper right corner of the screen:


    And on the next page find a Profile Photo section and remove your image (if you want to change it).



    Then, add a new photo by selecting From your computer and clicking Choose File.



    When you’re finished, click the Save Profile button on the bottom of the page.


  5. Date format

    The template requires smaller date format for the date to be properly displayed. To modify it, go to Blogger Dashboard -> Settings -> Language and Formatting:



    Then, click on the Date Header Format and choose a smaller format like this one (d/m/yy):

    date_format_2That’s it. Click Save settings and you’re done here.


  6. Pinterest and Instagram gadgets

    If you want to use a Pinterest gadget that was shown in the template example, use this generator to create the code and then copy and paste the code to the HTML gadget in the sidebar that is called Latest Pins.

    Pinterest board: You can leave this blank if you want to show the latest pins from all boards.

    Here’s a similar generator for Instagram gadget:

    Both generator tools are based on this tutorial: http://www.codeitpretty.com/2012/03/pinterest-gadget-for-blogger.html
