Where Is The Template Designer Wizard?

The new Designer Templates were released over a month ago, and still not everybody knows how to access them. Almost daily, we see the plaintive query
Where in my Blogger settings can I access the new Blogger template designer?
and to be sure, it seemed, at one time, a bit tricky.


(Update 2010/06/10): The Template Designer is now a production Blogger feature.

The Template Designer is now part of Production (Orange) Blogger, and is accessible from the dashboard "Template" page - or the navbar "Design" link.



If you click on "Design" from the navbar, you get the "Template" page, where you find the "Customize" button.

There it is - "Template Designer".



Just login to Blogger, click on "Template", and hit the "Customize" button.

You can't miss it.

Cheri / Debbi,

You have a problem with the Template Designer script - most likely a security setting problem.

I fixed it before I got your note this afternoon. I have Explorer 9.whatever. I found a compatibility view for the browser. I set it for Blogger and other sites. I can now fiddle around in the Template Designer. Luckily, I did not have to fiddle with my security settings,

I fixed it before I could let you know and I got your reply. I found a comaptibility view in Explorer 9.whatever. I set it to work with Blogger and other sites. Luckily, I did not have to mess with my security settings. Thank you!

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
