Blogger has just added an exciting new option that makes it so much easier for people to change their template and use a custom template.Now instead of having to delete the widgets on your template when changing you have a "Keep Widgets" button.
One of the biggest turn offs for people who wanted to use a custom template on their blog was when they made the change they would lose most of the widgets and gadgets they had on their old template.There is ways to overcome this but for people with little Html knowledge it was a bridge too far.They often didn't make the change or allowed the widgets to be lost and had the frustrating job of having to find, edit and add them again.
But those dark days are Gone !
You now have the option to click the new "Keep Widgets" button and loose nothing.
Look at the screenshot below :
You are told
"Warning: Your template does not contain the following widgets:"
"Would you like to keep these widgets on your blog or delete them?
Deleting widgets cannot be undone."
Once you click "Keep Widgets" you new template will be uploaded and your Gadgets and Widgets will be kept.You can return to the layout section and move them around if required.

I think this will lead to total overhaul of blogger and we will see more people who were maybe cautious of using custom templates making the change.
