Some Important Tips to Publish Templates Faster

Every day we receive many templates with variable quality and complexity. Selecting, classifying and hosting images on Blogger may take a long time for us. If you want to your templates be published as soon as possible, help us with the following tasks:

Host all images in the same template on Blogger.com

If you use a free image hosting is probably that after a couple of months the images will stop working, so we strongly recommend you to host all the images on Blogger.

How to host images on Blogger (step by step):

1. Upload all images in a normal entry.

2. For each image you will see a code like this:

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Zuzii37VUO4/SsuDq-9L-tI/AAAAAAAAETQ/2xGUPF90nvA/s1600-h/btemplates.png">
<img style="float:left; margin:0 10px 10px 0;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 184px; height: 41px;" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Zuzii37VUO4/SsuDq-9L-tI/AAAAAAAAETQ/2xGUPF90nvA/s400/btemplates.png" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5389546153556310738" />
</a>

In this code, copy the link which is inside the “href” attribute and paste it into your browser. For the previous example:

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Zuzii37VUO4/SsuDq-9L-tI/AAAAAAAAETQ/2xGUPF90nvA/s1600-h/btemplates.png

3.You will see the single image. Then,  click on it with the right button of your mouse and select “Copy Image Location”.

The copied URL is similar to the previous, but now it can be used in the XML template. Replace the corresponding image in CSS with this URL hosted on Blogger.

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Zuzii37VUO4/SsuDq-9L-tI/AAAAAAAAETQ/2xGUPF90nvA/s1600/btemplates.png

4. Repeat this process for all images.

Links to RSS Feed

Many templates come with no link or incorrect links to the RSS. In Blogger you can create use a dynamic link that will be changed automatically according to user’s blog.

For the posts RSS use:

<a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl + &quot;feeds/posts/default&quot;'>Feed RSS</a>

For the comments RSS use:

<a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl + &quot;feeds/comments/default&quot;'>Comments RSS</a>

Javascript

If you use libraries like jQuery, Mootools, script.aculo.us or another, use the Google Code hosting.

If you use small scripts, embed them directly into the template to not depend on an external hosting. If you use huge scripts, use Google Code to host them.

Advertisement

Try to send templates that are free of outside advertising like Adsense, Infolinks, Text link ads, etc.

Browser Compatibility

Check if your template looks properly in all major browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer 7) to avoid frequent updates.

Conclusion

Maybe the most important point here is that you try to host all images on Blogger at first. Regardless, the most points you to accomplish, the fastest your templates will be published. Better yet, your templates will be more useful for users and that will have a positive effect on your site.
