I'm wondering why I can't preview this template.

"Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.

I know this template works as I've seen others using it. I don't know why it's saying this error as theres nothing wrong with it.

I don't know what could be going wrong .... all you have to do is go to:

TEMPLATE >> Edit HTML section in blogger dashboard.

Then (above the big box of code) there's a option:

"Upload a template from a file on your hard drive" -- click on "BROWSE" then find the .xml template document on your computer. When you have selected that, click "Upload".

You don't have to copy and paste any code or even touch that big box
of code. It will automatically save once you click on "upload"
(perhaps asking for confirmation to delete any widget data) - and then
it's done.

Even missing the slightest step (or
trying to upload anything that's not a XML document) will not work!
