UPDATE! We suggest you use to host your images if you do not have a server to upload them to. If you use Imageshack, you will need to adjust the image sources in the blog template to reflect the new image URLs.
Blogger won't let me upload the external style sheet (blog.css) at their service.
Take a look at my new instructions on how to add the external file sheet to your template↑ TOP
I uploaded everything to my server, but the template or graphics don't show in my blogger file, either in my template at Blogger, or online.
You were correct to upload everything to your server EXCEPT for the template file. For that, you need to open it up in a text editing program like Notepad for Windows or Simpletext for Mac--NOT a graphical page editor like Dreamweaver, PageMill, GoLive, FrontPage, etc. Then you need to copy that text and paste it into your blogger template at Blogger.
Also, make sure that you do not upload the file called index.html. This will then overwrite any other page you have by that name in that directory. Just upload the graphics, the style sheet (the item that ends in .css) and paste the contents of template file into your blogger template.
Also, make sure that the graphics are in the proper directory. In the Eyesites Phase 1 & 3, all the graphics are in the same directory as your template will be. In Eyesites Phase 2, they are in a separate directory called "annsborders." Make sure they stay that way when you upload them.↑ TOP
I did everything according to your instructions. The colors and text show up the way they're supposed to, but the images are broken.
You probably didn't upload the image files into the correct directory. To solve this problem, re-upload them into the same directory (if you're using an Eyesite from Phase 1 or 3) or upload them into a directory called "annsborders" (if you are using an Eyesite from Phase 2), or edit your template to reflect the correct path to the images.
Example 1: you have a blog at http://somehostcompany.com/myweblog where index.html is the name of your weblog and the images are in a directory named "images", then you'd have to add "images/" before all the graphic file names, so the code would be <img src="images/graphic.gif">
Example 2: you have a blog at http://somehostcompany.com/myweblog/html/blogger.html where blogger.html is the name of your weblog included in a subdirectory called "html" and the images are in a subdirectory under "myweblog" named "images", then you'd have to add "../images/" before all the graphic file names, so the code would be <img src="../images/graphic.gif">
How do I make the archives page look like my weblog?
In Blogger, copy your template file into your archive template file over at Blogger. Remove any code inside of the <Blogger></Blogger> tags and insert <a href="<$BlogArchiveLink$>"><$BlogArchiveName$></a> instead. Remember to keep the Blogger tags! ↑ TOP
Do I have to include ALL links to you?
You have to include the links which I have commented out. You do not have to include the links to my blog (Eyeblog) or Dawgblawg unless you want to. Please keep the text that credits me as the creator of the graphics down at the bottom of the page as well. ↑ TOP
But if I pay only $10 for the template and graphics, I can remove all of these?
Yes! As long as you don't falsely represent yourself or someone else as creating the graphics, then you can remove all mention of me from that template. Quite a deal, huh? (If you use another template, it's an additional $10 for that one too). There are other pricing options available too. ↑ TOP
How do I use this with another weblog script besides Blogger?
You would need to follow the instructions of that script, and remove any tags in the template, replacing them with whatever code the other script uses.
Can you help me? I'm just having so many problems with this.
No. I cannot offer any free help...my instructions on each template are sufficient for even a beginner, as long as you READ the instructions and follow them. Problems arise when one doesn't follow sthe instructions, or when they 2nd guess the instructions and think they know what to do, but they don't really. ↑ TOP
If you continue to have problems after thoroughly reading the instructions, you may want to find a message board via Blogger where other users may be able to help you out. I am not affiliated with Blogger or any other weblog script site.
As I already said, I cannot offer any free help. Everything I know I have already written in the instructions. Anything I would tell you would just be a reiteration of what I have already said, hence repeating myself.
