Recent templates are all the same.

I like the recent templates but they are not usable. The links for how to change them do not work, you are unable to edit the title. They look good but you are unable to really use them for blogger. Hope the creator gets them fixed.

@celeste w: You may use any template if you follow specific instructions for any of them. If you do not understand something, you should make a question.

I love this template. I do have a question though, When I post a link to the blog to my facebook the description is this –

summary_noimg = 800; summary_img = 650; img_thumb_height = 150; img_thumb_width = 225; //=1) { imgtag = ”; summ = summary_img; } var summary = imgtag + ” + removeHtmlTag(div.innerHTML,summ) + ‘

I’ve been trying to find where to fix it with no luck. Any idea what line(s) I need to be looking at?

I am having trouble replacing the images in the featured section – I keep getting errors or not image. I am using Google Picasa 3 and have tried different formates to replace the current images. Anyone else having this issue or have a solution?

Better instructions?

Hello-

I’m testing this template on my test blog before I implement live. I have a couple of questions that you could perhaps help me with, both centering around the summary functions for the posts.

1. Is there anyway to turn off the summary and page break for individual posts if desired?

2. If not, is there a way for the summary to show the true post, it looks like as currently formatted its removing hyperlinks and formatting of the post (if you visit the url above the post from Nov 12th illustrates this issue).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
Chris

@Chris: Go to Design/Edit HTML -> Expand widget templates and replace:

<div class='post-body entry-content'>

<p><script type='text/javascript'>
summary_noimg = 800;
summary_img = 650;
img_thumb_height = 150;
img_thumb_width = 200;
</script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
//<![CDATA[

function removeHtmlTag(strx,chop){
if(strx.indexOf("<")!=-1)
{
var s = strx.split("<");
for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++){
if(s[i].indexOf(">")!=-1){
s[i] = s[i].substring(s[i].indexOf(">")+1,s[i].length);
}
}
strx =  s.join("");
}
chop = (chop < strx.length-1) ? chop : strx.length-2;
while(strx.charAt(chop-1)!=' ' && strx.indexOf(' ',chop)!=-1) chop++;
strx = strx.substring(0,chop-1);
return strx+'...';
}

function createSummaryAndThumb(pID){
var div = document.getElementById(pID);
var imgtag = "";
var img = div.getElementsByTagName("img");
var summ = summary_noimg;
if(img.length>=1) {
imgtag = '<span style="float:left; padding:0px 10px 5px 0px;"><img src="'+img[0].src+'" width="'+img_thumb_width+'px" height="'+img_thumb_height+'px"/></span>';
summ = summary_img;
}

var summary = imgtag + '<div>' + removeHtmlTag(div.innerHTML,summ) + '</div>';
div.innerHTML = summary;
}

//]]>
</script>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<div expr:id='"summary" + data:post.id'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb("summary<data:post.id/>");</script>
<span class='rmlink' style='float:left'><a expr:href='data:post.url'><b>Read more »</b></a></span>
</b:if>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'><data:post.body/></b:if>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'><data:post.body/></b:if></p>

      <div style='clear: both;'/> <!-- clear for photos floats -->
    </div&gt

by:

  <div class='post-body entry-content'>

<p><data:post.body/></p>

      <div style='clear: both;'/> <!-- clear for photos floats -->
    </div>

Save changes.

hi, I love the template so far and i have been tweaking it since i downloaded it. Right beside the header is an “add a gadget” option. When i try to add text or a picture, it is cut off towards the lower right. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks for your help.

@Obie: Use only the sidebar to add widgets in this template.

I have to problems using the buttons on the side (the ones below the search bar). How can I use them?

↩ Reply
Claudia 4 January 2011 at 8:54

@Prince: This is the code of the buttons:

<div class='custom_images'>
<a class='addthis_button_twitter'><img alt='Twitter' height='32' src='https://3.bp.blogspot.com/_JUg9QsmKp5s/TMtsW3WpDOI/AAAAAAAAAds/Gr5vSsgSY4w/s000/twitter.png' width='32'/></a>

You must put your links there in this way:

<a class='addthis_button_twitter' href='http://twitter.com/MYTWITTERUSERNAME><img alt='Twitter' height='32' src='https://3.bp.blogspot.com/_JUg9QsmKp5s/TMtsW3WpDOI/AAAAAAAAAds/Gr5vSsgSY4w/s000/twitter.png' width='32'/></a>
