    Hi, I might sound like a complete idiot but I’ve never used Zip files before. How does this work!?

    DDS says:

    Hi! You just need to extract the .zip file on your computer. You’ll then find a “readme” file with instructions. Further instructions are here: http://deliciousdesignstudio.com/installing-premades

    Hi, I’m using subtle stripes but I’m not sure how to reply to comments using it as there’s no ‘reply’ button. >__<

    This might sound really stupid haha.
    Could you please help me out?

    Hi! I’ve been trying to download subtle stripes, but there is something I’m probably doing wrong, because when I click upload I get this message:

    “We were unable to save your template.Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly. XML error message:
    Content is not allowed in prolog.”

    If I could get some help and figure this out I would be so appreciative! Thanks!

    DDS says:

    Hi hoping you can help! Just downloaded the lilac stitch download however I do not see the option to just add the lilac background to my blog. It’s as if that element in the download is missing. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    I’ve been trying to download Subtle Stripes and it has came up with:

    “We were unable to save your template.Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly. XML error message:
    Content is not allowed in prolog.”

    Can you help?

    DDS says:

    To add new items in the nav bar you need to add new links: Go to Design or Template – Edit html, then in the template window identify the following bit of code:

    <div id='menu'>
    <li class='current_page_item'><a href='http://YOURBLOGNAME.blogspot.com/' rel="nofollow">Home</a></li>

    And basically, following the same format, you need to add a new line of the highlighted text above for each item before the “” tag.
    Then preview the template to see if it’s been added correctly. And save. (Of course replace the URL with your actual URL.
