Tweak your Aspire – Template images gone  

Posted by Jaideep Walia in , , ,

Aspire is one of the most appealing blogger templates I have encountered. It was developed by Infocreek which unfortunately is now no more. Though it can still be downloaded at BTemplates. Though the template works, but the image files need to correctly show template in it’s full glory are missing.
And the culprit is the original image hosting site where the files related to Aspire template were stored. There are 30 gif/jpg files that make up this beautiful template. All these files were stored on www.webpagedesign.ws/aspire, but now it is not available. So let’s get to work and save our beautiful template.
This is how the site looks without those 30 files

The basic idea is to host all these 30 image files to a site that does not go down in a hurry and then link these up in our template. What better way to host these images on one of Google’s own site called Google Sites. Now since you have google account (You are using blogger…Right:), simply login into the site.
Google Sites
Create a website.

Give your site some unique name.

Then select the options as shown and click to create. I have named my page pics (how original!!!). My advice keep it pics as it will help in next steps.
Select the options
Now add all the 30 files to this page.
Add all the 30 files to this page
Once done note down the url of the pics. If you have created the page pics, then the url should look like :
https://sites.google.com/site/YYYYYY/pics/crack.jpg
(Replace the YYYYYY with your site name)
Now go to your Blog => Template
Select Template

=> Edit HTML
Edit HTML

=> Click Proceed
Click Proceed
=> Expand Widget Template
Expand Widget Template

Select the template and copy paste it to Notepad and SAVE it. If anything goes wrong, you will be able to “copy & Paste” it back.
Now again copy & Paste to notepad (as a new file) and replace
http://www.webpagedesign.ws/aspire/
with
https://sites.google.com/site/YYYYYY/pics/
(Replace YYYYYY with your site name)

Now Paste this changed code to your Template editor, Preview the changes. If satisfied, save the template.

Now you have Your favourite template restored to its full Glory.
