    very good template.

    Thanks

    problems everywhere.
    in layout it’s a whole pain to move up/down the gadgets.
    it’s a real mess. I gave 1 star because I couldn’t give zero

    yeah you are right blogspoter….. I’ll look into that problem. I’ll be very thankful if you would mention other bugs in the template… thanks

    for noname:

    to change the background color to grey. you have to follow following steps.

    > goto Edit HTML section.

    > scroll down the template till you find

    body {
    margin:0 10px;
    font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    color: #333333;
    }

    > just add this line inside the {}

    background-color:#A7A7A7;

    > now it would look like this

    body {
    margin:0 10px;
    font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 11px;
    color: #333333;background-color:#A7A7A7;
    }

    I did that yesterday.
    Sorry, I didn’t wanted to be mean with you. I was just upset because it took me some time to put the gadgets and later I couldn’t arrange them. sorry

    also, if it’s possible don’t use that white background. posts look like if they were thrown on a piece of paper and they look loose.
    if it’s possible make the post areas recangular (same width but longer like banners) and not square

    thanks

    hey blogspoter, you can still use the template but I’m not very experienced in playing with Blogger. To quickly rearrange your widgets, pick one and quickly throw it to the place you want, that works good.

    I’ve already told you guys how to change the overall background color of the blog from white to grey.

    but if you want to change the background color of posts (which is currently grey), you can do the following…

    >> Search for this code in your template

    #col01 .home-post .excerpt {color:#333333;
    height:190px;
    overflow:hidden;
    padding:12px 12px 0;
    font-size:11px;
    line-height:16px;
    background:#a7a7a7;
    }

    >> Change this value

    background:#a7a7a7;

    to this

    background:#FFFFFF;

    >> Now Posts background color will be White.

    it’s similar to Cellar Heat ..similar to or too similar..

    yeah, Cellar Heat was also designed by Evan Eckard and this theme also belongs to him. The main difference is almost no ise of images due to which this one loads very fast. While cellar heat has around 500kb images in the background.

    I couldn’t even change the template to cellar heat. I was getting an error BX- – —
    I usually get that error a lot of times.
    I read a lot about bx errors but I can’t fix problems.
    at first I load a very simple blogspot default template, then I delete all widgets etc and the problem persists.
    only 5% of downloaded templates work for me 🙁

    hey blogspotter, that is a Blogger platform failure.. even I get that when I convert and test different templates. you know one of my sites (www.mobi123.me) doesn’t have comments system enabled. I’ve tried several templates but all in vain.

    I don’t understand the reason why some people load the templates without problems and other people can’t.
    what helped me a little bit as i read somewhere is to use google chrome instead of other browsers. some templates loaded successfully with chrome.

    for blogger errors, you can always try one method, that is to remove your browser cookies and cache and then restart it. That works for me in Firefox.

    man this layout is incredibly difficult to work with :/ and it’s so glitchy and things are just kinda all over the place 🙁 It’s so upsetting because it’s so similar to allkpop’s and I love theirs but man D:

    I think this layout would function so much better in wordpress vs blogspot or it really needs fine tuning before going into blogspot. Such a shame, I love love love loveee the concept.

    and I saw the other versions, but since I really want a girly or minimalistic quality to it, I’m not gonna bother with CH’s verions

    I love this template, and i was able to customize it to my needs for the most part, but i’m having a terrible time with the comment display. The image i.d.’s don’t show up, and more importantly, the comments aren’t lined up with the person who gave them. Really everything’s wrong with it. Help! Anyone. i really like this template, but i don’t know where to go from here.

    Hi to all users, yes this template have some problems regarding widgets placement and comments. I’ve started to work on an improved version, so please keep an eye on this page and on my homepage. You guys will soon see a stable version, thanks!

    Hey Guys, some of the readers told me that images are not centrally aligned when you are on the main page and full image is not displayed! To correct that, just find the following code in your “Edit HTML” tab.

    #col01 .home-post .excerpt {color:#333333;
    height:190px;
    overflow:hidden;
    padding:12px 12px 0;
    font-size:11px;
    line-height:16px;
    background:#a7a7a7;
    }

    and replace the above code with following code.

    #col01 .home-post .excerpt {color:#333333;
    max-height:190px;max-width:220px;
    overflow:hidden;
    padding:0 12px 0;
    font-size:11px;
    line-height:16px;margin-top:1px;margin-bottom:1px;
    background:#FFFFFF;margin-left:-12px;
    }
    #col01 .home-post .excerpt img {
    max-height:190px;max-width:221px;
    }

    Hey! This is a great layout!

    I saw tips on how to change the overall background, and the post background. What about the post header – how can the pink be changed?

    Thanks!

    I LOVE!! this template but I have a problem that I cannot fix. And I would like to do it in order to use this cool template.

    It appears that it is only happening in Firefox and not IE. Any ideas why the youtube/ other flash players are coming out?

    I have a question. I know the layout has experts (summaries of each post). I love that on my main page. How do I remove these from my other stand along pages such as contact page, etc. You can visit the pages of my blog to see what I mean. I gives a summary and the page cannot be seen.

    Hey, I’m wondering what is causing that weird border on the image (using the image instead of header text option) as shown on my (testing, dummy) site: onerat.blogspot.com

    I’ve combed through the style sheet and code and cant find anything that would cause that dark purple border, couldnt even find that color. Help!

    Also, this only occurs in Firefox (mac). In Chrome and Safari it looks fine.

    I have a problem with this template. It doesn’t show the images on the frontpage, although I followed the instructions and placed them in the right folfer (post-images).

    Anyone knows the problem?
