[Pro] Trouble Uploading Blog

Hello
I hope you can help. I’m trying to customize my blog template at http://poppidesigns.blogspot.com/. I’ve been following the freeway article http://www.softpress.com/kb/questions/36/Blogs+in+Freeway . It says it’s easy - so I’m definitely doing something wrong! I’ve created my blog as detailed in the tutorial but it wont upload.
Please can someone help? In the upload section in freeway would the server be ‘poppidesigns.blogspot.com’? Or can I upload from my blog somehow?
Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

Hi Chloe

You upload your FW blog created page to your own server space (so that any images etc are available to blogspot) and once you have done that follow the next 2 steps


10 - In the Actions palette click on the Copy to Clipboard button. This will automatically copy the Blogger template code to your clipboard so it can be pasted in the next step. Note: if you have applied more than one Blogger Action, you only need click on one of the Copy to Clipboard buttons.
11 - Log into your Blogger account and go to Edit HTML in the Layout section. Paste the code into the large field in the center of the page and click Preview. You should see the Header and the Blogger navigation bar at the top of the page.  When you are ready to save the template click the Save Template button.

Hope this makes things more clear

David

Hi Chloe,

David hit it right on the nose.

There’s a video tutorial on creating Blogger templates also, if
watching the process works better for you than reading it. You can see
the video here:

great thank you… Although I can upload now I’m finding a few other bits tricky. I want a coloured background with a white panel running all the way down the middle so you can read the text ok. However my blog can only see an object which is html and I can’t tile the white box so it scrolls all the way down my page. I’ve tried tiling a jpeg as the background of my page but it doesn’t show when I load it onto my blog.

Sounds like you may not be making the background properly, as a real
page background. If you are, then make sure you upload your site
somewhere so that the graphics are available online for your
blogger-based blog to find.
