Posted: 8.8 years ago
ok i am tired of seeing threads asking very commonly asked questions.
so let's end it all.
i shall compile everything (well almost) here.
here goes :

1. How do I install my blogskin on to my blog? It just gives me some could not be parsed, XML error."

ok, to solve this,
look down from the huge input box where you tried putting your code into.
and click onto the "Revert to Classic Template" link very close to it.
hope this solves it.

2. How do i download blogskins?

On the page of the skin, click the button of your choice (for whatever you use)
"blogger main"
"movable type"

Image from lix

after awhile, your download should be completed, edit the code by putting in your profile things or what-nots,
and there you have it,
a nice blogskin for your blog!

3. How do i style my blogskins profile page?

Well, this one requires minimal knowledge.
view each and everyone of those links.
and don't forget to NOT leave a line between each line for your css code.
paste this code into your "about me" section

more experienced people with css, and some html

just view source,
figure out all the components with the class=WHATEVER CLASS tags in the [div] tags
and then view here for the default attributes for the various parts of your profile page.
NOTE : figure out which of the tags declarations are actually for your profile page.
or you might mess something up.

4. How do i have the comments section in my blog?
if your blogskins does not have the comments part added for your blog,
add the following code,
to enable comments.
[a href="[$BlogItemCommentCreate$]"
[$BlogItemCommentCount$] comments[/a]

replace the "[" or "]" brackets with the angled brackets.
you may want to add this just before the [/blogger]
part of your blogskins code, to allow comments after every post.

Where can i get nice fonts / brushes /pictures ?
well, there are many sources.

Fonts :

Brushes :
Miss M
Project-gimpbc GIMP brushes

Pictures :

Don't forget to credit the sources and ask for permission from deviantart users.

5. How do i make i screenshot?
Ok, two methods for different computers.
first mtd :
ctrl + prt sc

second mtd :
fn + prt sc

after doing that, open paint or some photo editting software and paste it in.
then save it.
and upload it :D
any other mtds, please tell me :D

there you go, some help and questions answered here,
if there are any other common or frequently asked questions, please do tell me and i may add them here.

  bang i'm back
there is no such thing as a code for labels. you just type inside there.

you can make a blogskin anywhere, in the toilet, room, school, anything.
there is no program you need if you're good enough, just, notepad.

  Hi all! I'm sorry if this question's been posted before, but if your skin becomes SOTD, is there any way you'd be notified (like e-mail or private message)? Thanks!:)

  Oh, and lastly, if anyone comments on your skin, how'd you be aware of it? I usually check each one. Too tedious.

  Uh, i made a blogskin.
But it doesnt view good in mozilla.
It works fine in IE7+
How do i make it look nice for mozilla & IE?

thanks in advance.
♥ooh-'s icon Author: ♥ooh-
Posted: 8.0 years ago
you have to code it nicely.
the css.

there is no way to make it look the exactly the same in FF and IE that I know of.
you could try resetting all the default paddings and margins.

* {
padding: 0px;
margin: 0px;

yes. apart from that, i say, code for nice views in firefox.
cause firefox rocks my socks.

Posted: 8.0 years ago
the first problem is that guys is spelled with an "s" not "z"
ok, so for the skin.
it's probably lousy coding of the skin.
change to a new one.
or pm me.

dont understand you.

  Is there a way to make a navigational blogskin with tables? (the [table][/td] codes I mean).
If there is, is there a site that teaches it?
If not, can you suggest another way?

Thanks a bunch!
♥ooh-'s icon Author: ♥ooh-
Posted: 8.0 years ago
yes there is a way. Study the code for navigational skins that use the div tags.
then just change it to fit the table tags.

try coding it.
