Many of you have probably noticed the new "Design" button on Blogger. Some people have tried out the new templates and accidentally clicked on "Apply to Blog", with out meaning to. When you do this, one of the new templates is applied and you can not go back to Minima from this screen. If you would like to go back to Minima again, in order to use the Backgrounds from this site, or one of the other free background sites out there. Here's a step by step tutorial showing you how. Unfortunately if you did apply one of the new templates you will have lost any Html customizations that you may have done or paid to have done, like adding a third column and these will need to be redone again.

Step 1) Here you see (above) we are in the new Blogger Template Designer. Click on "Back
Step 2)Next click on "Edit HTML". Don't worry, we are not going to touch the HTML!!
Step 3) Now were are in the HTML screen. Scroll past the Html to the bottom of the page.
Step 4) Click on "Select Layout Template".
Step 5) Select the Minima template. And click on "Save Template".
Step 6) Now you have reverted back to the old Blogger and you can add your backgrounds again, the way you normally would.
Keep in mind, if you did not change to the new templates you don't have to do any of this, you can still change out the backgrounds the same way that you always have!
Over the next few weeks I will be working on figuring out how to get my backgrounds to work with the new Designer, for those that want to use it and all of its features. I have it mostly figured out now, but I have one small detail to work out yet.
