Thank you for your support!!

Installing Free blog backgrounds: FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:



**Some of my free blog backgrounds come in three sizes or widths: 3 column, 2 column and super skinny 2 column.
By choosing a 3 column free blog background it WILL NOT change your blog layout to have 3 columns automatically. Please contact me if you'd like some help changing your blog layout to 3 columns. ($15 service fee)**


* QUICK and EASY installation!
* NO More having to Edit your HTML!
* You won't lose ANYTHING!



PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY




** Your blog should be in the Old Blogger Template called 'MINIMA' for these free blog backgrounds to work. Don't worry, you won't loose your page elements by changing it! **

** To change your template to the Old Blogger 'MINIMA' template, follow these instructions:
Click the 'Design' tab from your blog Dashboard (MAKE SURE YOU'RE IN YOUR DASHBOARD BEFORE CLICKING THE 'DESIGN' TAB) > Click 'Edit Html' under the 'Design' tab > Now you'll see an orange title 'Old Templates' near the bottom of the page > Click on 'Select Layout Template' highlighted in blue > Then click 'MINIMA' and Save!


(Open a new Internet Window to go to your blog, while keeping Aqua Poppy Designs2 open, so you can easily toggle back and forth between screens)


1. Click the "DESIGN" tab from your blog Dashboard
2. Make sure you're now in your "Page Elements" screen. Click "Add a Gadget" on the SIDE BAR OF YOUR LAYOUT.
3. Find "HTML/Java Script" and click "Add to Blog"
4. You are now in the Configure "HTML/Java Script" screen. You will see a large box called the Content box.

5. Now come back to Aqua Poppy Designs2 and highlight and copy the entire code in the BOX below the background you want to use (Clicking a couple times on the text in the box will highlight all of it, then copy it OR click and drag using your mouse to highlight entire code), then paste it into your blog "HTML/java script" Content box!

6. Click SAVE! You’re all done!


**Please leave a comment on the free blog backgrounds you use!**
