Birdie’s Good Life | Free XML Blogger Template

Posted by Gis in Free Blog Templates - Saturday, January 5th, 2008

Updated March 15th, 2009. Title centering now on IE. This template is now 980px wide, so it will work on screen using 1024px+ resolution.

I was feeling a bit in need to make a new one!! And this is different from previous ones, since it goes to full width!! Hope everyone likes it!!!

BTW, this template is specially dedicated to Erin Berky, from Hope you like it, and maybe decide to use this one!!!

IMPORTANT: If you want to try UPDATING your blog’s template, first make SURE you backup your current template (you should always do this when planning to change to a new template). And how do you do this? Check the image below!! This way, if something goes wrong, you can always reupload your current template!!

IMPORTANTE: Si quieren intentar ACTUALIZAR el template de su blog, primer ASEGÚRENSE de hacer backup de la plantilla actual que tengan (siempre deberían hacer esto cuando quieren hacer un cambio de plantilla). Y ¿cómo hacer esto? Fíjense en la imagen de arriba (si bien está en inglés, los links están ubicados igual). De esta manera, si algo sale mal, siempre pueden volver a su antiguo template!!

    Ey you guys, TEMPLATE UPDATED!!

    Hi Gis,
    Do you have any tip I can just adjust the title so it is centered in IE? (Example: which portion of the code I can update to fix it)? This is because I will lose all my links in my gadget if I download the updated template – even after I back it up >< THANK YOU!

    Hi, I have been using this template for almost 1 year and love it very much. But not sure why the header picture suddenly disappeared yesterday.

    Is it the picture can’t be loaded?

    I love your templates but can’t seem to use any because none of the images show up? Could you tell me what to do about this? I have used one of your templates before, and there was no problem then, but when I try to use any now, none of the pictures in the header or anywhere else show up.

    Do let me know what I can do!!

    Ey dear, did you download it from here or another site? and which templates did you try?

    I have moved most to photobucket now, so this shouldn’t be happening
