How do I make the slider appear ONLY on the homepage?

↩ Reply
Claudia 19 December 2010 at 2:33

@GeorgeEngineer: Go to Design/Edit HTML and find this line:


Paste the following code under that line:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'>
<style type='text/css'>
#slidearea{display: none;}
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<style type='text/css'>
#slidearea{display: none;}

Save changes. Does it work?

@Claudia: Thanks for the quick reply but I put the code under ]]> but it still shows on post pages as well. I want it only on the homepage. It should disappear when it goes on a post but it doesn’t.

GOOGLE CHROME DEFORMS THIS LAYOUT!… And when I say ‘deforms’, I’m referring to the Recent Posts list. Is there a way to fix this?

@Rahul Malhotra: Go to Design/Edit HTML and find the following code that you’ll need to remove:

<div class='sidebar2'>
<h2 class='title'>Thumbnail Recent Post</h2>
<p class='thumbnail'>
<script language='JavaScript'>
imgr = new Array();
showRandomImg = true;
tablewidth =0;
cellspacing = 0;
borderColor = "#ffffff";
bgTD = "#ffffff";

imgwidth = 160;
imgheight =75;

fntsize = 12;
acolor = "#000";
aBold = true;
icon = " ";

text = "";
fsize= "11";

showPostDate = false;

summaryPost = 60;
summaryFontsize = 11;
summaryColor = "#666";
icon2 = " ";

numposts = 4;

home_page =


<script type='text/javascript'>
function removeHtmlTag(strx,chop){
var s = strx.split("<");
for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++){
s[i] = s[i].substring(s[i].indexOf(">")+1,s[i].length);

s = s.substring(0,chop-1);
return s;

function showrecentposts(json) {
j = (showRandomImg) ? Math.floor((imgr.length+1)*Math.random()) : 0;
img  = new Array();

for (var i = 0; i < numposts; i++) {
var entry = json.feed.entry[i];
var posttitle = entry.title.$t;
var pcm;
var posturl;
if (i == json.feed.entry.length) break;
for (var k = 0; k <; k++) {
if ([k].rel == 'alternate') {
posturl =[k].href;

for (var k = 0; k <; k++) {
if ([k].rel == 'replies' &&[k].type == 'text/html') {

if ("content" in entry) {
var postcontent = entry.content.$t;}
if ("summary" in entry) {
var postcontent = entry.summary.$t;}
else var postcontent = "";
postdate = entry.published.$t;
if(j>imgr.length-1) j=0;
img[i] = imgr[j];

s = postcontent ; a = s.indexOf("<img"); b = s.indexOf("src=\"",a); c = s.indexOf("\"",b+5); d = s.substr(b+5,c-b-5);

if((a!=-1)&&(b!=-1)&&(c!=-1)&&(d!="")) img[i] = d;

cmtext = (text != 'no') ? '<span style="color:'+acolor+'; font-size:'+fsize+'px;">'+pcm+' '+text+'</span>' : '';

var month = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12];
var month2 = ["Jan","Feb","Mar","Apr","May","Jun","Jul","Aug","Sep","Oct","Nov","Dec"];

var day = postdate.split("-")[2].substring(0,2);
var m = postdate.split("-")[1];
var y = postdate.split("-")[0];

for(var u2=0;u2<month.length;u2++){
if(parseInt(m)==month[u2]) {
m = month2[u2] ; break;

var daystr = (showPostDate) ? '' : "";

posttitle = (aBold) ? "<b>"+posttitle+"</b>" : posttitle;

var trtd = '<a href="'+posturl+'"><img src="'+img[i]+'" width="'+imgwidth+'" height="'+imgheight+'"/></a><td style="background:'+bgTD+'" valign="top">'+icon+'' + daystr + '</tr>';

if(summaryPost == 0) { trtd = ''; }



document.write("<script src=\""+home_page+"feeds/posts/default?max-results="+numposts+"&orderby=published&alt=json-in-script&callback=showrecentposts\"><\/script>");

Hi, this isn’t a major problem, but the text color under “Leave A Reply” matches the background color too closely (it looks black or very dark gray). So it’s difficult to read. I haven’t been able to fix it. Help!

(Spanish) No es una plantilla fácil de manejar por lo que el público poco dado a la modificación de html encontrará bastantes dificultades. Aconsejo trabajar con 2 pestañas: en 1 de ellas copiaremos la ruta de enlace de cada 1 de las fotografías, en la 2º pestaña tendremos el codigo html preparado, ejecutaremos la busqueda de la fotografia y una vez encontrada ya podremos cambiarla sin miedo. Por el resto salvo que la exportación de texto de word a blog no es la mejor, es una plantilla que visualmente ofrece un gran poder llamativo.
