You need to edit this template to enable menu and search engine. Copy text code that is in downloaded folder and then go to blogger dashboard –> Page elements –> click edit at HTML gadget is in front below header –> there paste code. Thats it.

The template is cute! But I downloaded it and this is what it said:

Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: Content is not allowed in prolog.

Hi guys, I guess when you download any template from here, you also get a ReadMe file. Please open that file because it contains the installation instructions which are really very easy to implement.

Can’t figure out how to activate the links across the top (home, about, contacts, faq). It’s not in the readme file.

↩ Reply
zEEROCKz 11 April 2009 at 12:37

Hi Patti, You’ll see an HTML/Text Widget just below the header widget. That contains the links, just change them.

↩ Reply
patti 11 April 2009 at 18:43

Just to let everyone know, the “home,” “about,” “contacts,” and “faq” navbar links on this template are not really links. Those words are just part of the background image. So, if you want them to actually be links to anything, you have to go in and change the source code. They should really make that easier to fix.

↩ Reply
patti 11 April 2009 at 18:44

zEEROCKz — you can’t fix it w/ the widget, the widget was blank. I had to get a programmer friend to write the code for me.

↩ Reply
zEEROCKz 12 April 2009 at 6:34

Guys, I’ve just downloaded the template and it contains a text file “Code for menu-searchform-rss (copy and paste!)”.

Simply copy this file contents in the “Text/HTML Widget” just below your header widget. I think that is the simplest way to get things going!!!!

Thank so much…

Is it right that it is not possible with this template to add messages very easy?
I mean… that you have to add your message in the template itself?

Hi Heather, well thanks for appreciating. Actually you can’t remove those icons because they’re actually part of the background image.

Hi Joe, when you download the template the template from here, you’ll see that there’s a widget included in the compressed file. First, just install the template then copy the contents of the widget included and paste them under the header widget in “Page Elements” tab. You can do that by just creating an “Text/HTML Widget” under the header widget.

Hi, I’ve installed the template and absolutely love it – it’s perfect for the group I wanted it for. However, the labels don’t show (i.e. posted by [name]) – which is problematic because it’s a shared blog! Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

I made how you told us, put the code in the html gadget bellow the header but I’m having a problem, the links dont match. Like, the link where I put “contacts” only works if you click in “home” and the same happens with the others.

Any way i can change this?

Ill check back.
Or a comment is fine too

Hi Liam, you wanted to change the text in the “About Us” box in the sidebar. For that simply go to the “Edit HTML” tab in your blogger “Edit Layout” section. There, simply search for this text and replace it.

I’m sort of new to this so I’m a little confused. I copied the code to the Text/HTML Widget under my header, but how do I get the link to actually go somewhere from my blog? Shouldn’t I be able to creat a page where the “contacts” link will take you to?

I would like to know how to make the code for the menu/search etc line up with the boxes. When I come to do a search the cursor is actually above the box.
My other question is with regards to the search facility. I have done preliminary searches to find that it searches google not my blog. How can I rectify this?
Other than those minor problems I am very impressed with this blog template.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Sonia and all, I’ve provided a detailed setup guide at the following page, please refer to that, thanks.

Hi Btemplates, some time ago you guys used to have another option with each template which was about the template installation, please restore that one because there are a lot of templates which need to be properly setup before use, thanks.

Por favor. Necesito ayuda con esta plantilla. No he podido arreglarle mucho pues no tengo gran conocimiento de programación. El copy paste sugerido no me funciona para nada pues interfiere con mi título.
Lo que me interesa saber es cómo hacerle para que los comentarios aparezcan en una ventana emergente ya que antes si aparecían y ahora entra dentro de la misma página (la sustituye) y para grabar un comentario en necesario cerrar la ventana y volver a entrar.
Claudia, si lees esto espero que me respondas.
Ayuda, por favor…
