Blogger template loads with errors

I have been trying to make some changes to my template with the new "drag & drop" features, but now the template loads with errors and there's no way to add a new page element. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how did you fix it/report it to Blogger?

I've just been to your site Tom, and I can't see any errors. So I assume you've either switched back to a previously working template or the errors occur within the editor.

The drag-drop feature of the new Blogger make me glad I moved to Wordpress. As is so often the case they work fine until you want to do something slightly unusual, or until something goes slightly wrong, then the automated system handling the editing can't make head nor tail of the code and you loose the lot. I think this is compounded by the fact that the new template is in XML/XHTML. With "traditional" HTML a browser will do its best to render a page even with errors, but with XHTML the standard is very very strict and will be less likely to display a page. With XML any errors will stop a page being parsed completely.

Perhaps you could furnish us with the exact errors. While I can't profer much help becasue I don't work with the new blogger templates I'm sure someone will be able to offer advice.

Alex, thanks for the reply and I apologize for the delay in getting back, but I have been on the road for two weeks.

The problem is when I load the "Layout" option, often it does not come up with the "add a page element" box showing. This means I can't "drag and drop" elements to change their order, etc. In fact, the page loads incorrectly 9 out of 10 times (estimated). So recently I added a review by Sex-Kitten.net, but can't move it down the sidebar order because the page won't load properly.

I suppose I should move to another host, but Crikey, it takes most of my spare time to WRITE the bloody thing! LOL
