Ninja's "Cheater Method" for Widget Re-Installation

Once you've changed your template, you will want to reinstall your widgets. Just follow these steps and you will be up and running in no time!

* This tutorial functions under the assumption that you backed up your widgets using the Ninja "Cheater Method". If you didn't, you can still reinstall your widgets, but these instructions may be a little confusing. (Don't say I didn't warn you! LOL) *

1. Go to your Blogger dashboard and click "Layout".

2. Click "Page Elements".

3. Open the document where you saved your widget back ups.

4. Go to the first title and copy all the code beneath it for that widget.

5. Go back to your "Page Elements" window and decide where you want to put that particular widget.

6. Look for a link that says "Add a Gadget", like this:

Click that link.

7. You should now see this:

Find the wiget called "HTML/JavaScript" and click the blue plus sign on the right.

8. You will see a box like this:

Type a title in it (and be aware that your title WILL be visible on your blog!), and then paste the code you copied into the bottom portion.

9. Hit save.

10. Repeat this until you have replaced all the widgets you backed up earlier.

You can also drag and drop your widgets to rearrange them until you get them just the way you want them. Just be sure that you hit "save" in the upper right corner before previewing your changes, or else they won't "stick".
