Once you are 100% satisfied with the look and layout of the preview that your designer has created for you, it is time to install the design to your live Blogger blog. Installation of your new look requires that your designer has access to your blog HTML. In order to grant access to your Blogger blog, you have two options.
Option 1: Give your designer your username and password.
This is the quickest and easiest option.
Your privacy is very important to Designer Blogs and your username and password will not be shared with anyone for any reason. Your information will not be requested until your design is ready to be installed and it will only be used for the purpose of installing your blog design.
If you have concerns about privacy, you may create a temporary password for your designer to use that can be changed when your installation is finished. Here’s a Blogger tutorial on creating a temporary password:
Once you have created a temporary password, you can email your designer and share your username and new temporary password. After installation is complete, you are welcome to follow the same steps to change your password again.
Option 2: Grant your designer temporary admin privileges.
That brings us to the second option; a Blogger tutorial for granting your designer access to your Blogger blog. This method takes a little longer because it requires some back and forth communication between you and your designer, but it also allows you to keep your password confidential.
Step 3: Manually type in the email address of the designer who will be installing your design. Click “Invite authors.”
Step 4: An email will automatically be sent to your designer for him or her to accept your invitation. You’ll see an “open invitation” status until your designer accepts.
Step 5: Your designer will email you to let you know when he or she has accepted your invitation. The final step is to grant your designer full access to the HTML of your Blogger blog. You do this by changing your designer’s access from “Author” to “Admin” in the drop-down menu.
Step 6: Once you are completely satisfied with the installation of your new design, you can remove your designer as an admin from your blog. Click on the “X” next to his or her email address to revoke access to your Blogger blog.
