    Thanks very much for designing such a beautiful template.

    I have a question about the blog title. When I go “home”, the font is smaller, but when I choose a particular blog, the font becomes much bigger.

    Can you tell me how to fix it?

    Thanks again.


  9. Claudia 16 May 2010

    Go to Layout/Edit HTML and change:

    #headerarea #header-info h1 {
    color: #000000;
    font: normal 45px Georgia, Verdana;
    padding-bottom: 5px;
    #headerarea #header-info h1 a {
    color: #000000;
    text-decoration: none;


    #headerarea #header-info h1, #headerarea #header-info h1 a {
    color: #000000;
    font: normal 45px Georgia, Verdana;
    padding-bottom: 5px;}
    text-decoration: none;

    Does it work? 😉

  10. Simon Chiu 17 May 2010


    Hi Claudia,

    Works like a charm. 🙂



  11. Justin 19 May 2010

    Thanks Claudia. I love your template..

  12. natacha 24 May 2010

    i have no idea how to make this work. i donwload it and then it opens with a weird program. am i supposed to save it?
    i really want this background it really fits my blog… help please!!!!

  13. Gordon Wales 25 May 2010


    I have the same problem, but undefined refuses to go away. Any other solution. I have tried each of the times state just in case, but none work. Gordon

  14. Claudia 25 May 2010

    @Gordon Wales: You are changing the “date header”, that is why it does not work. It is not the same. Please, change the “timestamp” (hour) format as I explained above.

  15. natacha 2 June 2010

    i am so happy to have figured out how to use this template.
    i am wondering if there is a way to make the title of the posts bigger? they appear so small under the date of the post…
    thanks for your help and your beautiful creation 🙂@Claudia:

  16. Claudia 2 June 2010

    @natacha: Find the following code in Layout/Edit HTML:

    #content .post .post-title h2 {
    color: #333333;
    font: bold 18px Georgia, Verdana;
    padding: 15px 0 5px 0;

    You must change the value "18px" by a bigger font size (for example, 20px or 22px). Save changes.

  17. Gary 10 June 2010

    Claudia, thanks for making this wonderful template! I modified my blog according to both the entries above (since they were helpful changes), and I have one other question. How would I introduce the normal thing up at the top of “Follow, Share, Report Abuse, Next Blog.” How do I add that back in? And also, what colors would you suggest if I were to add it back in?

    Thanks in advance!


    • Claudia 12 June 2010

      @Gary You can find the answer to your questions and more in our FAQ section.

  18. natacha 12 June 2010


    as advised, i changed the value to several different sizes, and I never see a difference… could it be another value that i need to change?
    thanks for your help

  19. Claudia 19 June 2010

    @natacha: If it does not work, try with:

    #content .post .post-title a {
    font-size: 20px;

    (The bold line must be added to that piece of code).

  20. natacha 26 June 2010


    yesssss it works thank you so much!!! 🙂

  21. Oswaldo Bernal 6 July 2010

    Mil Gracias me encanta esta plantilla

  22. jazmin 11 August 2010

    @Claudia: it still doesn´t work for me. What am I supposed to do?

  23. Natacha 14 September 2010

    is there a way to make a space between the post and the comments?
    for example, on my page, when i post something, there is no space between the last line of the post and between the date. so it makes it a little bit hard to read and tell the difference where the blog post ended and where the ‘details’ of it are (like the date, time, comments, etc.)
    thanks for your help as always!! <3

    When I try to upload your template, this appears: Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: Content is not allowed in prolog.

    I went to the FAQ but it doesn’t says anything about how to erase widgets or gadgets or how to close XML elements. Can you bring me any help? :/

  25. bader 13 November 2010

    How Can i change the tools of the blog like archive… from Left to Right ?

    and How can i remove The “Subscribe to RSS” ?

  26. bader 14 November 2010

    please, iam waiting The answer

    i tried go to FAQ’S but i din’t found what i want

  27. Claudia 16 November 2010

    @bader: It is better that you use this template “as is”, because maybe you will need to make may modifications to move the sidebar from left to right, and the Subscription button can’t be removed from the header. Just take a look to the header image:

    It is a single image… but if you aregood in photoshop,you can edit it and change that URL in your xml template.

    This template is really cool. Is there a Drupal version of it available? Or if you know of similar-looking Drupal themes, it would really help us out…


  29. syukron 10 January 2011

    i love this… but how to change Home, Post RSS, common RSS, Edit with my own page… newbie.

  30. Jay 16 January 2011


    Hello! Thanks for cool template. I really like it but I have major problem. The commenting doesn’t work. I have tried to solve the problem but can’t figure out what’s the problem.

    Could you please help

  31. Claudia 18 January 2011

    @syukron: You can find the answer to your questions and more in our FAQ section.

  32. Claudia 18 January 2011

    @Jay: Go to Settings/Comments/Comment Form Placement -> Embedded below post. Save Settings.

  33. Jay 21 January 2011


    I change the settings but it still doesn’t work. I’ve read all the FAQs but don’t understand this. By clicking “0 comments” it opens own page but there is no space for commenting below the posted text…

  34. Jay 23 January 2011


    I started a new blog and got the commenting part to work that way. Thanks one more time for your template!

  36. Claudia 29 January 2011

    @anwar: You can edit the footer, but don’t remove the links to Blogger Template Place and Blogger Tutorial.

  37. Sandra Libby 3 March 2011

    Hi Claudia
    Love this template and all the help above has been helpful to me as well. The only other piece I can’t figure out is that when I write in the small tagline to the left of the template, it doesn’t save and show up on my blog. It’s the line that is write below the “Home”. Can you just let me know if I am doing something wrong? Thanks.

  38. Claudia 5 March 2011

    @Sandra Libby: That tagline must be changed in Settings/Basic/Description. I guess if you are doing well.

  39. Sandra Libby 7 March 2011

    I went to settings/basic/description and typed in the text I wanted but it didn’t show up on the tagline. Anything else to try?

  40. Sandra Libby 7 March 2011

    Hey Claudia
    So I looked at my blog again and the text did show up but under my blog title and not on that small banner piece underneath “Home”. Any thoughts?
    Thanks for your time.

  41. anwar 15 March 2011

    Hi claudia

    can I add adsense code to my posts or pages,if so what is the way to do and please let me know how to paste the adsense code in the space provided for ad 200X200.I have to add it in sidebar.php or any other way to do that.


  42. Claudia 15 March 2011

    @anwar: Sidebar.php? It is a Blogger template, not a WP theme. If you are using the Blogger template, go to Design/Page elements, add a new HTML/javascript widget and paste your 200×200 banner code in it.

  43. Ian 16 March 2011

    Thanks for making such a great theme–I love it and it’s perfect for my project.
