  1. Hi.I have one doubt.I'm using third party template for my blog and the javascript used in it takes a lot of time to load.I want to host it on google code in my account.

    As you said in this post,we have to upload should I save/download those scripts to my desktop in order to upload it to google code?

    1. Open the source code of your template and search for the JavaScript. I am giving you hint that the JavaScript file will be with extension .js

      for ex.

      open this in browser you will get a javascript in your browser. copy it and paste in notepad. now save it as .js

      and upload this javascript to your google code.

      Hope you may get it what you want.
