The read more feature is automatic. That means you don’t have to do anything.

Very nice template and great job!Big thanks! BUT I don’t understand something.

When you click on the button “read more”, you go to another html page.
On this page, the font and the colour of the text is totally basic and different from the original page. Is it possible to keep the same font and colour? How do we change that in the html code?

I’ve tried to find the solution for 3h but couldn’t. So, I ask you the question…
Claudia you are the master.

I would like to ask how to edit the template. I just wanted to change the view of the home page as you can see an image the below to it is a text.

But my question is how can i edit the template instead of this one with the text, all i wanted to see is the image.

↩ Reply
Sam 3 September 2009 at 21:13

Hello Anshul

I downloaded the template and then uploaded the image. But it is not showing in the header. Moreover, I just put the text, but still it doesn’t show up in the header. It is completely blank.

I hope you would resolve this problem out soon/

@rick just show me the demo buddy as without seeing how can i suggest.Just show me what problem is.

↩ Reply
Sam 5 September 2009 at 21:06

well, I changed the theme because I couldn’t figure out what made the header text invisible even though I have downloaded 10 times.

↩ Reply
Anshul 8 September 2009 at 7:17

Sorry friends for the problem you are facing with template as many are not able to show text in header in this template.

As image is working fine and by mistake i didn’t checked for working of text in it.If you are using image its ok.But if you wanna use text.Just find the css for #header in codes and remove the below property,that i forgot to remove at time of conversion.

text-indent: -9999px;

now remove it and save it and you are done to show text n header.

Eunha 14 September 2009 at 21:16

Hi anshul! I really love this template, but I’m one who loves big banners! How can I change the header to about the width of the whole menu and with a bigger height?

I really don;t need an ad on the right so how can I delete that and just have a big banner on it? Thank you so much~~

↩ Reply
Ryan 15 September 2009 at 1:30

Anshul, this is a great template. I absolutely love it. I do have a question for you though. I downloaded the newest version of “The Latest” and uploaded it to my blog. Everything seems to be working great except on the home page the date is behind the title of the post. It is being cut off by the grey box that include the title of the post. Do you have any ideas to fix this? thanks!

↩ Reply
Anshul 16 September 2009 at 6:10

@Eunha Just find below codes and delete them.

<div id=’header-right’>
<b:section class=’crosscol’ id=’col1′ showaddelement=’yes’>
<b:widget id=’HTML1′ locked=’false’ title=” type=’HTML’/>

Now find these codes

clear: both;
width: 408px;
height: 74px;
outline: none;

Increase its width to 960px to make your header banner big.

@ryan i would say to remove date option to show off in this template to make this template work properly as using date make post sections look uneven on home page and destroy its beauty.

↩ Reply
eunha 19 September 2009 at 12:03

thank you so much!!!! but i ahve one more question.. can the height of the banner be changed? i’m trying to tweak it but it looks weird…

Jalan-jalan 21 September 2009 at 3:16

I tried with Photoplus, it worked well but it too complicated to post the image since we have to use third party for it. so i decided to use this one and just change few things. i even changed the background and header background from other tamplate which is suit to the colour.
Totally gorgeous!!

Thanks alot

Hey Anshul !

Thanks for this great template ! I’ve just one problem : my header is perfect with Internet Explorer, but is too low with Firefox or Safari : it hides the top of my submenu… I’ve tried to change the margin-top value, but when it’s ok for Firefox and Safari, it’s obviously too high with Explorer. Do you know something about that ?

Is there anyway to change the background color. Not where the post are located but the outside the outer wall. I tried but couldn’t find it. Well i did find the <outer wall text and i added an image but only the right side took and it seperated my post from the sidebar. Any help would be great thax.

↩ Reply
Anshul 27 December 2009 at 2:40

@jason you can change all outer color from here
body {
text-align: center;
font: 12px Verdana;
color: #727272;
padding: 20px 0;

And its very anoying to say and answer you as you have removed all footer credits from template,its not good.

↩ Reply
Jason 7 January 2010 at 16:15

Hey thax but that didn’t work. But i deleted the credits by accident i was trying to edit the name of the blog sorry. But what i wanted was to put a background picture instead of the white color not under the main post area or the sidebar area where the labels go either but outside these 2 i guess the left and right. I tried what you said but that didn’t work. Thax again. Sorry again.

↩ Reply
Anshul 7 January 2010 at 19:54

Hi, this is a great blog template, but I have a little problem… I really want the labels to appear in the post footer. I think it should be this piece of code to put somewhere, the problem is I don’t know where (I tried to put it in many places without any result.) :


Any idea? Best Regards

Love this awesome template! I need to solve the problem with the photos stretching on the home page. They do not stretch on the other pages. Can you please let me know how to fix this? Please let me know IN DETAIL as I am not a very good HTML person and would need you to tell me exactly how to fix this because I am not experienced.

Also – is there a way to make sub categories beneath the categories? Thanks.

As you can tell I need to do some work on the Header also, but this is a start. More important are the pics on the home page.

Thank you for your kindness in helping me.

Anshul 12 February 2010 at 14:51

Could you tell me how I change the size and colour of the text though as it doesnt change through ‘fonts and colours’.

Cheers very much!

Great template!

I would like to use a full size banner with no ad on the right. I followed your instructions given in response to Eunha, however, I am experiencing an offset (banner doesn’t fit up to the bars and runs over the submenu) full size banner. How can I correct this? Should I revise the code or my picture? I have tried both and been unsuccessful.

Also, is there a way to change the color of the SubTitles for the different sections (.e.g., Followers, About Me, etc.) to another color besides Green?
