Nice Template however the contents of the individual posts are coming as half and the user needs to click on the header of the post to read the complete article. How to display the entire content on the page itself.

Thanks in advance

@Sumku: Go to Design/Edit HTML, click on “Expand widget templates” and find the following code:

<p><script type='text/javascript'>
summary_noimg = 400;
summary_img = 400;
img_thumb_height = 125;
img_thumb_width = 125;
<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);
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;

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<div expr:id='"summary" +'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb("summary<>");</script>

Replace it by:

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

Save changes.

@Claudia –

I followed the code above, and now nothing shows up for the story until you click the header and go to it.

Also… how do you remove the big h2. date-header from appearing?

Just wanted to say I Lurve this template, thankyou!
Although I’m new to this and have 2 problems. The first being that the ‘twitter’ link on the upper right hand side(text image, next to twitter screen), is broken? Also, I don’t know how to modify the menu bar and create my own links/content there. If you could help me with this or direct me to a place where i can find a ‘how to’ or ‘fix it’ guide that would be awesome!

Cheers, Oxy
(And thanks again for a stylish template)

@Josue: Go to Design/Edit HTML/Expand widget templates, and remove the following code:

<div class='post-meta'>
<span class='italic'>Posted by <> on <data:post.timestamp/>. <b:if cond='data:post.labels'><b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'><a expr:href='data:label.url' rel='tag'><></a><b:if cond='data:label.isLast != "true"'>,</b:if></b:loop></b:if> -  <b:if cond='data:post.allowComments'><a expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'><b:if cond='data:post.numComments == 0'>No comments</b:if><b:if cond='data:post.numComments == 1'>1 comment</b:if><b:if cond='data:post.numComments >= 2'><data:post.numComments/> comments</b:if></a></b:if></span>

Finally save changes.

Thanks Cladia!…I’d like to know how can I change the home page view. I have the same problem of Sumku

“the contents of the individual posts are coming as half and the user needs to click on the header of the post to read the complete article. How to display the entire content on the page itself.”.

I replaced the code, but it gave an XML error message. I hope you can help me with that. =)

Hi! I’d Like to know how can I change the entry title font because I want to write in spanish and template doesn’t allow it.

@Pedro: Ve a Diseño/Edición de HTML, y busca la siguiente línea de código:

Cufon.replace('.post-title a,.single-post-title a, .slider-post h2', { textShadow: '1px 1px 1px #E2EEF1', hover: true, });

Bórrala y guarda los cambios. Dime si funciona.
