    Let me start off by saying THANK YOU to whoever put this template together and to who converted from wordpress to blogger. I love it.

    I have 3 issues I need help with.

    1) How do I get the horizontal navigator bar to show up under my header box. (not the blogger bar) I know it has something to do with links. Sometimes they are called buttons.

    2) I still have my editing boxes overlapping, making it hard to add gadgets in edit mode screen. Can this be corrected to make it easier to edit?

    3) How do I get the page number ribbons at the bottom to work correctly instead of just showing “older posts” “newer posts”

    The ribboned page numbers and the horizontal navigation bar were the two big reasons I switched to this layout. I really hope someone can help me.

    I don’t want to display the date. Is there a way to remove it?

    Hola como estas tengo un pequeño problema con esta plantilla donde se supone que tendria que aparecer… mmm no te sabría decir el nombre técnico, pero digamos que es donde estan “menú, RSS, contact” no se muestra en mi planilla y la verdad es que estoy media perdida me podrías ayudar??? desde ya gracias

  7. Claudia 4 December 2009

    Tienes que leer el archivo que dice “Instrucciones Adicionales”. El menú se edita desde un widget (o gadget) que está en la “Edición de elementos” de la plantilla 😉

  8. Thea 9 January 2010

    Hi! I cannot post a comment on my posts. Why is this so? I can’t fix it on my own. There seems to be a problem. 🙁 Please help me. Thanks.

  9. Claudia 9 January 2010

    This template is missing the embebed comment form. Read our FAQ to solve the problem.

  10. Thea 10 January 2010


    I tried doing it. But nothing happened. When I tried clicking the “Post a comment”, there’s a small box that appears but I there’s no cursor. No space to type in the message. What am I going to do?

  11. Claudia 10 January 2010

    You need to add a piece of code to the template. That code will let you and your readers comment on your blog with the embebed comment form. Did you already read our FAQ? 🙂

  12. Thea 11 January 2010


    Yes, I already did. But I can’t find the code that I’ll replace the new one with. 😐

  13. Claudia 12 January 2010

    Click on “Expand Widget Templates” and use the search bar in your browser to make it easiest.

  14. Crystal 13 February 2010

    Thanks so much for the lovely layout, after reading all the comments and directions in the zip, had no problems with errors…thank you… 🙂

  15. Eleonora 21 May 2010

    Hi, I have the “undefined” problem too. I haven´t found the answer, have you?

  16. Claudia 22 May 2010

    @Eleonora: Settings -> Formatting -> Timestamp format -> Saturday, May 22, 2010 😉

  17. Flor de Maria 13 June 2010

    Me encantó esta plantilla para mi blog, pero tengo un problema y es que en las entradas no logro configurar la fecha, lo he intentado de varias maneras pero no lo logro, ya hice tambièn lo que indican en su resolución de problemas con lo del cambio de fecha en la cabecera de la publicación o sea ir a la configuración pero no lo logro, porque será esto. Si pudieran ayudarme se los agradecería. Flor de Maria

  18. Claudia 19 June 2010

    @Flor de Maria: Debes ir a Configración/Formato/Formato de la hora -> Sábado, Junio 19, 2010.

    Debes tener cuidado en cambiar el formato de la hora, y no el de la fecha, porque no es lo mismo 😉

  19. Lacquer Boudoir 16 July 2010

    Love this template. I’m having problems with the comments. After reading the FAQ, the post comment box works now.

    But now the issue is that the user photo (avatar) does not show when the comments are posted. Help please?

  20. Claudia 16 July 2010

    @Lacquer Boudoir: If you are using te “full page” comments option, avatars will be shown only in that page; but, if you added the embebed comment box, you need to make some changes in your template. I think we will privide that information very soon, but in the meantime you may search in google “add+avatar+blogger+comments” or something so.

  21. Lacquer Boudoir 16 July 2010


    No, i’ve added embeded comment box according to your FAQ and it works fab.

    Yes, full page or pop-up window I can see the avatar. Not when you’re on the blog post page, it shows the comment bit there’s an empty frame with no avatar in it.

    I’ve enabled the show avatar features in settings in comments and also enable comments in blog post widget.

    Still, nothing shows but an empty frame.

  22. Dielma 17 August 2010

    Também estou tendo problemas com a data. Já efetuei todas as instruções adicionais, mas não altera nada. Continua aparecendo undefined. Por favor, me ajude.

  23. Claudia 17 August 2010

    @Dielma: Go to Settings/Formatting and change the timestamp format (the HOUR) to “Tuesday, August 17, 2010”.

  24. Libreman 1 November 2010

    Que parte del código tengo que borrar o que tengo que modificar para que no me salga al final de los posts esto:

    No me gusta como queda

  25. Claudia 2 November 2010

    @Libreman: Go to Design/Edit HTML, click on “Expand widget templates” and remove the following code:

    	<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
    <div class='ping-track'>
    This entry was posted
    on <data:post.timestamp/>
    <b:if cond='data:post.labels'>
    and is filed under  
    <b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'>
    <a expr:href='data:label.url' rel='tag'><></a><b:if cond='data:label.isLast != "true"'>,</b:if>
    <b:if cond='data:post.allowComments'>
    You can <a expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl'>leave a response</a>
    and follow any responses to this entry through the <b:include name='feedLinks'/>.
  26. Libreman 3 November 2010

    Gracias Claudia por responder tan rápido.

    Ya he realizado el cambio y queda perfecto.

  28. Claudia 3 December 2010

    @nanda vieira: Go to Settings/Fornatting/Timestamp format -> “Friday, December 3, 2010”.

  29. Lana Cotta 19 January 2011

    Upload of my blog has become terribly slow, out of a sudden, after more than one year all right.
    What is the problem? I cannot figure out…
    Thank you

  30. Claudia 21 January 2011

    @Lana Cotta: The problem is not the template. Your blog is too slow for other reasons: you are showing too much posts with many not optimized images in the homepage, and you have too much widgets with scripts running.

  31. Lana Cotta 23 January 2011

    Oh, thank you!
    Well, I manage all the images the same way, since the very first post. I do reduce them to the web dimension through the Microsoft Office Picture Manager. Otherwise, how should I optimize images?
    Then, which are the script running in my widgets? I thought I had only links!
    Thank you in advance for your kind attention

  32. Lana Cotta 13 February 2011

    Hallo, I haven’t received any answer to my last question.
    Anyway, does someone know whether there is a new release of Notepad template? People at Blogger say the problem is the template, a script and things like that. I’ve searched Infocreek web site but the link seems to be broken…. What can I do?
    Thank you

  33. Claudia 15 February 2011

    @Lana Cotta: I think there won’t be a new realease of this template. To optimize your photos, just change width, height and weight. I recommend you to use a free software like “PhotoFiltre” to do this.

  34. Lynnette Bonner 17 June 2011

    I, too, am trying to get the avatars to show up in their frames. Can you tell me how to do this? (They show up in the pop-up comment box, but not on the blog post itself.) Thanks,

  35. Kimberly 13 July 2011

    When I make a new post the solid background is not showing up, so the post wording is on the floral background and hard to read. How do I put the solid background behind the post? Thanks

  36. jose 20 September 2011

    ya tengo esta plantilla hace tiempo y va de lujo.
    Pero ahora he intentado poner la opsión “leer mas” en mis entradas y no hay manera de conseguirlo

    ¿podeis ayudarme?

  37. Patricia 24 January 2012

    I recently downloaded the Notepad blog design. I am very happy with it. I have only one problem that needs fixing and that is I am not getting comments. I tried to add a comment and the box is just not there. I am concerned that my readers are not able to leave a comment. I am also wanting the share this post bar for FB, Twitter etc to show up also. Can someone help out with this.

  38. Anna 23 February 2012

    I’ve used this beautiful template for years and now suddenly the background has disappeared!

  39. Patricia 6 March 2012

    Can a background be added to the header? The current header is a little, Blah!

  40. natalia 24 February 2013


    me he bajado la plantilla pero por más que intento que me salga la barra de navegación (donde pone diseño, nueva entrada, etc) en la parte superior, no lo consigo. Alguien puede ayudarme?


  41. Sanny 15 February 2014

    This is the most beautiful template, but it´s impossible to preview and download. What’s the problem?

  42. Rosa 17 June 2015
