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)
either,
"blogger main"
"xanga"
or
"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.
#1
#2
#3
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.
[BlogItemCommentsEnabled]
[a href="[$BlogItemCommentCreate$]"
[$BlogItemCommentFormOnClick$]]
[$BlogItemCommentCount$] comments[/a]
[/BlogItemCommentsEnabled]

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 :
Dafont
Typenow

Brushes :
Moargh.de
Miss M
Deviantart
Swimchick
Aethereality
Brusheezy
free4photoshop
brushesdownload
psbrushes
Project-gimpbc GIMP brushes

Pictures :
Deviantart
sxc.hu

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.

  I think only those blogger templates are able to have that.

Either case ,
someone asked me this
"HOW TO STRIKEOUT?"
"HOW TO BOLD?"
"HOW TO UNDERLINE?"
"HOW TO PUT ITALIC?"


I am so not kidding.

  Can I ask what is the code to let people download files?
Like you know once you click on it a pop-up will ask you whether you want to download?
Random thought , it would be great if a link was provided.

cause we are all bored! D: ooh you must go! even helena is there!

  Sarah, try to call me Shawn instead.

Yes, downloading things.
You have to upload the things you want the person to download.
Then just simply post a link to it.

  Can anyone save blogskins onto their Xanga account?

None of them will save on my Xanga account. I press save and it only goes to "processing".

"Processing" never ends, no matter how long I wait.

  The comment HTML (or whatever it's called), that you posted above (question 4). It doesn't work. When I paste it like you said, it only shows a link for comments, but when I click it, nothing happens.

  I have a question: When I put the following Comment-Code into my HTML-Code, it doesn't really work. After every Post you can klick on "0 Comments", but the link leads to ... nowhere.

[BlogItemCommentsEnabled]
[a href="[$BlogItemCommentCreate$]"
[$BlogItemCommentFormOnClick$]]
[$BlogItemCommentCount$] comments[/a]
[/BlogItemCommentsEnabled]

I changed the brackets to the write ones, so that couldn't be the mistake. Please: Help me!
