    Does any one help me ?

    When i put cursor on a thumbnail picture, it goes down and hide. it doesnt happen with DEMO. How can I fix it ?

    • Sérgio Faria 27 October 2014

      Hey man!
      To delete this effect you have to delete it:

      $(function() {$('.snips-image').hover(function(){$(this).find('img').animate({top:'220px'},{queue:false,duration:200});}, function(){$(this).find('img').animate({top:'0px'},{queue:false,duration:200});});})

      $(document).ready(function(){$('#back-top a').click(function () {
      $('body,html').animate({scrollTop: 0}, 800);return false;});});

      It took me a lot to get, but it is there!

    How do you center the page links?

  11. Kelly 10 September 2014

    It seems the comments are not working properly. How are you able to view all the comments at the bottom of each post?

  12. Renee 27 September 2014

    Love the template, however would like to slightly customise. Wondering if you can please assist with:

    – I only want to keep the Instagram, Facebook & RSS social icons – how do i delete the others from the HTML?
    – How can I delete the mini box image/icon on the right of each post title on the home page?
    – Space beneath the blog title & image on the home page icons – how do I slightly decrease the space size to ensure that the text above the images is closer?
    – When you scroll over the posts on the home page & the hover image & comments come up – how do I get rid of this so when you scroll over the image, you can just click through without any movement?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance, Renee

    Thank you!

  24. RJ 20 December 2014

    I can’t see comments, is there any way to make them appear

    • Xa 20 February 2015

      Hi RJ,

      When I check your page I do see the comments, once your post is opened up.

      Have you fixed this? Because at my page the comment section isn’t showing so nobody is able to leave me a comment.

      Please let me know if you fixed this, the whole point of my blog is kinda lost without this option.

  25. L. Dixon 1 January 2015

    I have used this template on my blog which is currently private. I could manage everything except fixing the related post widget at the bottom.
    How is it done? can anyone help?

  31. resham 13 March 2015

  39. Helder Terra 16 February 2017

    I’ve been using this template since 2013 and it never failed. However, since yesterday, every image from the initial page lost their proportions (and the “animation” once the mouse passed over them). Is that a way to fix this?

    • Patrícia 16 February 2017

      I have the same problem. Since today in the morning.
      I’m very worried!

  40. Cathy 16 February 2017

    I’m experiencing the same problem as Terra regarding the initial page losing the pics proportions and loss of animation of each particular photo as the mouse is passed over them. Suggestions as to how one should go about correcting this issue?

    • Helder Terra 17 February 2017

      Whatever it was, it appears to be normal now. I don’t know about you, but this morning I’ve checked my blog again and the problem was solved.

    • Patrícia 17 February 2017

      For me too.

  41. dba 24 February 2017

    This template has stopped working correctly. From one moment to another the thumbnails look smaller and out of focus. How can we solve this?

  44. Fabian 2 March 2017

    Hey guys, I do have the same problems with the proportions of the front page! Any help or soultions for this?

    • Helder Terra 2 March 2017

      I had this problem last month or so, but after a few days it got solved by itself and it’s running fine since. It should be working with you too. Maybe if you clear your browser’s cache, or update it to a newer version. I still suspect it was caused by browsers.

    • ana181 2 March 2017

      Thanks! I just deleted the cache, but it still doesn’t work. Well, I’ll keep waiting, maybe it solved itself too.

    • Fabian 2 March 2017

      Thanks for your feedback. But the cache solution didn’t work for me either, I also tested it on different computers and with browsers: same mistake

    • ana18 4 March 2017

      hi! It works corretly now! (ahora ya funciona perfecto, no le tube que hacer nada)

    • Fabian 6 March 2017

      Perfect! So glad it works correctly again!

  45. Jorge 3 March 2017

    Same problem here. Since 2 days ago, pictures at “home page” are small and blured.
    Does it works correct for you now?

  46. Fran 11 April 2017

    Hi, I have the same problem with the home images, somebody knows how to fix it?

  47. Tash 13 April 2017

    I’m having the same problem with blurry thumbnails on my home page. I managed to fix it, checked back a week later and they were blurry again. Please help!
