Cat Napper - free XML template

Here's a super cute blog template with your own navigation bar. The "home" link is already working, and there are instructions in the code, but here's how to add your own links:
  1. Log into blogger. Click on "EDIT HTML"

  2. Scroll down the large box of code until you see the following (it's near the end)

    <li><a href="'/'">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="'#'">Link Here</a></li>
    <li><a href="'#'">Link Here</a></li>
    <li><a href="'#'">Link Here</a></li>
To add your own links:
replace the "#" symbol with your link URL and then edit the "Link Here" text to be the name of your link (see colour coding below). So if you wanted to put a link back to me, this is what you'd change one of the lines to be:

<li><a href="''">Yummy Lolly</a></li>

You can remove or add any lines as you wish. You just have to add them before the </ul> code.
Let me know if you have any questions.

The design works with "new" blogger - ie: it's an XML template. Please ensure that you backup your widget data, as installing a new template will wipe/erase your current widget content.


  1. Hi,

    I start by saying that your templates are amazing. Last week I've downloaded one of them for my blog @

  6. Hi Janice,
    I'm not sure. I did have a look at your site.... and I can see the images ok.

    You're using an "old" blogger template and I no-longer support these anymore so you should upgrade to new blogger. They are easier to use!


  7. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    So, the template is deleted?, i really loved the old one.

    *so sad*

  8. Just wanted to say I LOVE your new header! Simple, bright and cute! LOVE IT!

  17. This is so well designed. It does give me a sense of calm.
    B-e-a-utiful template.
    excellent website templates

  18. Hey Sharnee, HUGE fan of your layouts. I'm working on using the Cat Napper as a base for my new layout.

    I was wondering, is there any way to make the customizable links be centered instead of off to the right? I've tried a couple centering codes, but everything I use just breaks the bar.


  19. Hi Aria, good question, I'm not sure. I will have to find out for you by playing around with the code.

  20. It's very beautiful template!Dolcissimo!

  21. Many thanks for a great template! Well designed and instructions are very clear. I also like the candy pink color.
