Download and Customize JetTheme v2.9- Free Premium Blogger Template

Jet Theme Blogger Template is the most remarkable free XML template that is available legally free. You do not fall into the lure of creepy links if you want to download this free premium Blogger theme.

Actually, Jet Theme’s developer has made 2 versions of it. A more professional-looking magazine-styled theme is available upon payment- Jet Theme – NewsPaper. The one I am currently using is Jet Theme Blog (a free version).

Jet Theme - NewsPaper version offers more features than the free version. For example, it offers different additional components in layouts for post listing by labels and displaying categories. It also offers various scripts, for example- (so-called) simple safelink script, script for anti boom AdSense clicks, and page view counter script.

However, for bloggers like me and you, the free version of Jet theme is sufficient.

The Free version is called Jet Theme- Blog. Besides some widgets on the homepage, there are not any compromises on coding, SEO, or user experience in the free version.

The current Free version is Jet Theme version 2.9. This was released on February 28, 2022.

Installing Multi-device Compatible Favicon 📱

The default favicon installation system in Blogger dashboard is quite limited. Your website may not show favicon in various devices. Hence, I did some research and set the favicon in my blog following the steps as suggested below.

1. Prepare the favicon (PNG file, 182x182 px) and then remove the background only if you need certain areas of the image be transparent.

2. Upload the image to Blogger using the post editor area.

3. Use HTML editing mode in the post editor and copy the link of the image.

4. Open the 'Theme Editor' of Blogger and look for <!-- Favicon -->.

5. Edit the segment as guided in the image below (Please pay attention to the texts in purple). Do not forget to save the template.
