While so many people ask every day in different online forums on how they can download and backup their blogger template , we will give you short insight on what these term is all about.

 So many bloggers edit their templates without having a backup file of their recent file . I came across a friend who always edit his blogger theme without backup and whenever he missed a code in his template he start afresh. he will sometimes tell me that editing a template is not good rather get a premium template that already has all the features you want, but Today i will be showing you how you can download and save your blogger template immediately you edit or change any plugin so that you won't loss it or start afresh like my friend.


Knowing that a theme and a template are two different names , they also have different meanings.
let us quickly look at the different meanings of a theme and a template.


Themes are what make a Drupal website look the way it does. Themers, or theme developers, use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other front-end assets in order to implement a design for their site. Each individual theme is a collection of files that define the presentation layer for your application. Themes are generally one of the first places where code is customized for a Drupal site, and are in many cases unique to the specific site they were created for.
Rather than starting from scratch, Drupal themes start from an existing HTML framework and make changes as needed by overriding and changing just the necessary templates. Some themes only need to modify a few select bits, while others may choose to override nearly everything. Either way, if it's HTML, you can change it with a theme.

In order for this to work, every component in Drupal that needs to display something in the browser provides a simple, minimal, HTML template for that element. Whether it's the content of a node, the site logo displayed in the header, or even the header region itself, the required HTML is rendered from a template. These templates can be overridden by a theme in order to change the markup they generate.

Themes are used to:
  • Change the HTML markup of anything in Drupal
  • Add CSS styles to change the layout, color, or typography on one or more pages
  • Use JavaScript to enhance the user experience
  • Most themes will combine changes to HTML markup with new CSS files that provide the layout and overall graphical treatment of a site, and JavaScript that modifies the ways users interact with the content of the page. Combine all of this, and you can make Drupal look, and feel, like anything you can imagine.


A template is a file that serves as a starting point for a new document. When you open a template, it is pre-formatted in some way. For example, you might use template in Microsoft Word that is formatted as a business letter. The template would likely have a space for your name and address in the upper left corner, an area for the recipient's address a little below that on the left site, an area for the message body below that, and a spot for your signature at the bottom.


  • CSS
  • PHP
When you save a file created with a template, you are usually prompted to save a copy of the file, so that you don't save over the template. Templates can either come with a program or be created by the user. Most major programs support templates, so if you find yourself creating similar documents over and over again, it might be a good idea to save one of them as a template. Then you won't have to format your documents each time you want to make a new one. Just open the template and start from there.

Now knowing the meanings of themes and templates we can now tell what they are and what they are used for. in you case what we will be teaching you is template.
