  • This is really a beautiful template.
    Though I have a suggestion. In my opinion that purple box that shows the date of the post looks kind of out of place. Maybe it would look better if it were on the white page or maybe leave it where it is but that the color from purple to another color that would mix better with the background.

    Nonetheless it’s an awesome template.

  • please get a new template for falconhive.com! this template colors aren’t good. :(

  • beautifull template… will you create your own Alva?

  • I love this kind of template! But i do love dark template. Can u make this kind of template black?

  • I love this template. But I would like a darker template. Could u make a black template just like this with some colourful….also?

  • Hi, you could create a model template for me?

  • Beautiful indeed. Colourful, I feel it filled with joy:) Thank you and wish you a lot of inspiration with other joyful and inspirative templates.

  • Fell in love at this template at the first sight. Thanks to bring it for blogger users.

  • hi, how can I make use of the search box…

  • Hi, I adore this template. Thank you for doing it. I can’t seem to get the date stamp tab to work though, it just says “undefined”. Any ideas how I can get this to work. I went through the instructions above but it didn’t work for me.

  • Hi again, My mistake, wasn’t following instructions very carefully. All sorted now, thanks.

  • I still cannot use the search box, anyone can help? :'(

  • hi there, i noticed that the black clip image above the menus on the right cannot be displayed properly, any idea how to over come this? how to i go about installing the pluggin? i’m using blogger, thanks :)

  • I love this template, but I viewed in IE7 and found that there are tan had cut 1/4 on the post. Is there I can to fix that? the template look so perfect in firefox, but not on IE7. Thank you for sharing this template!

  • It’s beautiful, but one way or another I’m not getting the background I should have.
    Went through all the steps perfectly… so I don’t know what to do

  • Hi! I love this template, but I’m not sold on the font used for the blog title. Is there any way to change that? Also, I’d like to have the blue top bar used by blogger for this template. Is there code for that?

  • It’s a wonderful one. I wish I could have it for my blog :)

    Keep the creative juices flowing!

    Keep up the gr8 work !

    Cheers !

  • Hi little red,

    Thanks, I’m glad that you love this template!

    Sure, you can access into ‘layout’ and under the ‘edit HTML’ tab, search the code .blogtitle and change the value ‘font family: Arial, Verdana’ to the font name you preferred.

    You can recover the blue top bar used by blogger by search the code #navbar-iframe and remove its entire { to } section, ‘Save’ to show the bar again!

    Hope this helps, enjoy customizing!

  • Hi Cebong Ipiet,

    Sure, I’m excited to create my own! :D

  • Hi Little dreamer,

    Can I know more about how you can’t make use the search box? Thanks!

  • Hi Laane,

    Thanks for your words! Can I know that the image hosting service you use to host the template’s image? Thanks!

  • This template is beautiful. Colorful, vibrant yet simple and easy to read layout. I’m trying to use it but somehow, the images are not exactly in place. I’m using photobucket to upload the images. Is there any particular size that it should be uploaded?


  • I can’t seem to get the date stamp tab to work though, it just says “undefined”.

    Y have the same problem in my another blog with colorpaper template.

    I dont´know how to fix it.

  • Hi again, ok I fixed, i was a missunderstanding between languages, I change to english, and I identify time and date correctly.
    Congratulations I have 4 blogs with your templates, I just simply love it.


  • I get it now, after check out comments on your other templates. To all those out there using photobucket and having problem with your background messed up, please clear your cache and upload again all your images. BUT, remember to select “max image size: 1 megabyte file size”. The other options compresses the images. Hope it helps. :)

  • colorful template…!

  • hey… the container image doesn’t show up for some reason? Can you guide me to get it up please? Its an awesome template..I’d really like to use it on my blog. =) cheers.

  • como ves ¡Al fin he encontrado una plantilla que me gusta! pero no puedo poner la” barra navgar” la barra de navegación y me ha sido complicado el tema “códigos” gracias a mi hija que me ayuda
    podeis poner en contacto para darme la informacion que me falta gracias

  • i was just wondering if there’s a way to get rid of the little push pins on the sidebar, they kind of bother me. other than that i’m COMPLETELY in love with the template :)

  • Hi Jules,

    Thanks for your great comment and support! :D

  • Hi Rabia,

    Thanks for your comment, I’m sure to help you! Can I have your blog address to know the issue further? Thanks!

  • This template is very nice.
    I have added on my blog http://Kreativityland.blogspot.com but i have the problem for the date stamp tab, I identify time but can’t change (forgive me for my english)
    Help me please!!

  • hello..

    i just finished setting this template to my blog..
    its really an awesome template..
    and i really luv it!

    and for the last step, i click on the icon at bottom of the page, which is the flickr item..
    i accidentally put my other html code, not the flickr one cuz i dont even hv flickr account..

    how to cancel off the html code that i hv put there?

    you can look at my blog if you want to..

    pls give me the solution ASAP..thanks a lot

  • i hv found already the solution…
    by the way, thanks for your attention to my comments before this..
    sorry for any inconvenience..

  • This template is lovely – it downloaded/uploaded fine and is working great. I’m just wondering if there is a way for me to edit the html so that my name does not appear under each post title.

    Thank you!

  • The base top, base bottom, and post bottom are missing from my page. They’re there in the html but don’t show up on the template. Seem like they’re cover by other elements, base and such. I can’t figure out how can this happen since the bg_bottom and top.jpg are wider than the width of those. No one else seem to have this problem. Please help.

  • Thanks for the help on my previous question. However, now I”m with little dreamer in that I can’t get my search bar to work. It just keeps bringing up the front page. Any ideas?

  • Hi DanielaKreativa,

    Thanks for your comment! I feel a need to confirm that you are changing the ‘Timestamp’ format but not ‘DateHeader’ format, thank you! ;)

  • Hi little red,

    Thanks for your further report! Can I have your blog address to know more about the issue? Thank you! :D

  • Hi Mamamiow,

    Thanks for your detailed report! Can I get your blog address to understand the issue further? Thank you! :)

  • Hi Falcon,

    Thanks for the respond. My blog address is http://www.streamothought.blogspot.com I redid the template on both PC and MAC but doesn’t make much different.

  • Hi Falcon,
    After searching loads of websites, found this beautiful template, thank you! I have it uploaded onto my “practice” blog, http://secondtreasure.blogspot.com/, which I use to get the kinks out before moving it to my real blog. Just a couple of things:
    1. Search function isn’t working;
    2. Would like to remove my name from under the post title;
    3. I would like to change the blog title name (name of real blog is God Treasure) to Gigi font, and did that in the html code, but I know not everyone’s computer will be able to pick that up. Anyway to copy the header to paint.net or something and add the new text font on and replace the code with that header?

    Thanks so much

  • PS – I also seem to be missing the container image although it is showing in the html code.

    Thank you,

  • Absolutely love the template. But i would like it if i could remove my name from under the post title and if there was a way to remove the the “search” from it, would make it perfect for me.
    Thanks so much

  • Love the template – looks gorgeous. Have no problem with any of the features, except for the search box. Please, post some information on how to configure that. Thanks!

  • Love what you did with the place, nice and clean and so chic.

  • Have you had time to figure out what’s wrong with my template set up? Let me know if you want me to send you the code. Thanks. (Didn’t mean to spam the post but I’m leaving in a week to the country that has poor internet connection. I want to get this sorted out before then.)

    • Thanks for sending me the blog address! I noticed that you are using the Flickr to host the template image, and after the comparison I discovered that the dimension of the image is slightly different with Photobucket hosted image.

      You can try Photobucket to host your image, please remember to select ‘max image size’ to ‘1 megabyte file size’ since other options would compress the image.

      Hope this helps and thanks for featuring our templates! :D

      • Yes, that does it. Thank you very much Falcon. By the way, I don’t see the post bottom image on the demo either. Do you notice?

        Well, you have a good taste choosing the templates to work with. It’s obvious they’re the best out there. Keep them coming…

  • I got the post bottom to work already. Don’t worry about it.

  • Thanks Falcon, I downloaded the new template (with fixed search function) and it’s working great now :=)

  • I’m currently using this theme, however, where the date tabs are supposed to be I have “undefined”. Any clue how to fix this?

  • please disregard the previous post. I’m a dingleberry who can’t read directions. lol

  • I cannot figure out how to get my flickr pictures to show up…I followed your directions but it didn’t work.

    • Thanks for your report! I feel a need to confirm to you that you got the Flickr’s ID in idGettr.com and replace the ‘YOUR-FLICKR-ID’ with your own unique ID.

      Then you can put the code into the HTML/JavaScript gadget as described in the ‘Set up the Flickr Gallery on the Footer’ section, ‘Save’ to achieve your beautiful Flickr Gallery!

      All the best!

  • Another thing, when I test the search function it keep taking me to a Templatelite preview…I am assuming the search function is to search within my blog right?

  • How would I go about removing the flickr photo thing at the bottom and the search bar at the top?

    Thanks…and sorry for all the questions

    • Sure, Did you mean to remove the Search and Flickr section’s function and image?

      Since the Search and Flickr section’s image are came with entire template background image, it would be a hard and time-costing matter to remove those images through Photoshop or other image editing software.

      Thanks for your comment and question, please don’t hesitate to ask more to get your best solution from us, I’m always glad to help! :D

  • This is a beautiful template, just love it! Thank-you for posting how to fix the search button, looks perfect on my blog.

  • Pingback: Blogger Templates - Water Color | Blogger Templates Blog ()

  • I fixed the search button. I followed the Flickr directions but it doesn’t work for me.

  • Let me give you more details:


    Unique ID: 39304678@N04

    Code I put in:

  • Hi, I love this template, it’s the one I’m using in my blog. The only problem is that, I don’t know why but dd and mmm appear “undifined”. Do you have any idea how to solve this?… This may be happening to someone else to.

    Thank you so much!

    • Thanks for your words, I’m glad that you love this template!

      Sure, you can follow the ‘Set up the Date’ section to set up the date properly, please noted that you’re changing the ‘TimeStamp’ format but not ‘DateHeader’ format.

      Hope this helps, all the best! ;)

  • I having problems with the tab and the bottom of the paper clip does not show up, as you can see here:


    I love the template, however, not a complete expert at blogger yet, I am not sure how to fix this.

  • I really like your template, but I cannot get the tabs to show in my blog? How may I fix this?

    • Thank for your comment, I’m glad that you love it!

      Sure, you can follow the ‘Set up the Navigation Menu’ section in the post to set up the tab properly.

      All the best!

      • I love this theme! I am still getting problems though. I can’t seem to set up the page tabs on my blog. The instructions don’t what I see on my blogger account. Please help!

  • Hi, First of all, thank you so much for a stunning template, I love it!! But I do have problem with the search box of water color template because it is not functioning. I’ve read your post of the already fixed one for download. I downloaded the file(Water Color_v100), but when I try and use it, the whole background are just disappear, remain only the plain light brown color. I don’t know why since other posts say it works just fine. I really like this template, please help! How can I fix this?

  • Hi J,

    Thank for your precious comments and reports!

    Sure, you can follow the ‘Set up the Navigation Menu’ section in the post to set up the tab.

    Enjoy customizing and blogging! ;)

  • Thank you so much! I am so silly for not noticing that. I appreciate all your hard work on this splendid layout! Thanks for helping :)

  • Hi Falcon, I like this template and I am glad that you bloggerized this template so I can use it. One problem though, it seems that I can not put my flickr photo collection into the bottom widget as per your direction. I’ve followed your directions including getting my flickr id from idgettr, etc, and I Have spent several hours to look for the error, but still doesn’t work.
    Could you please help me?

    • Hi Nina, nice to meet you, I’m glad that you like this template!

      Sure, I have updated the post with more explanation, you can follow the ‘Set up the Flickr Gallery on the Footer’ section to set up your Flickr photo collection properly.

      Hope this helps, all the best! ;)

      • I’ve been following the instructions and have replaced the userid with mine for the flickr photos at the bottom but it still does not work. Something isn’t correct with that embed code.

        Can you please help in further detail? We’ve read through all the previous comments and suggestions you’ve made and nothing has worked.

      • I’ve figured it out! It’s an issue with copying the code from this website and pasting it directly into the textarea on the configure section. When you save it after copy and pasting, the quotes will double themselves. Reopen the configure window and manually replace all quotes. Should work fine then.

  • Alvaris,

    I loved your template and am using it for my blog. I need you help to add feeds to my post (Feedflare).

    Feedburner tells me to add a line of code just below “”, which I’m not able to find in this template. I’ve tried adding at a few likely places, but without success.

    Can you pl help me out? And thanks for this beautiful piece of work :)

  • Thanks for your precious comment.

    If you are trying to add a feedburner widget, then you need to place the code in a separate HTML widget.

    This template code is not exactly similar to the standard blogger templates. So it is not necessary that you are able to find all codes.

    I hope this helps.

    • Its a script that I’m trying to add. Can you tell me where to place it ?

      >script expr:src='”http://feeds.feedburner.com/~s/thinkling?i=” + data:post.url’ type=”text/javascript” charset=”utf-8″/script<

      It adds links to the footer of each post.

      • Hive commentator

        Thanks for your kind reply.
        Follow these steps so that you are able to add your script to the footer.

        1. Check the expand widget templates checkbox.
        2. Search for this cod

        3. Place the script right below this line.

        I hope this will help you.

        Good luck !

      • Works like a charm:)
        Thanks a lot!!

      • Hive commentator

        Welcome! my dear friend.

  • thanks for splendid design and function. :)
    i’ve got problem with unshown pictures. i’ve tried IE/firefox/chrome.
    pls. help if i did something wrong.
    many thanks in advance.

    • Nice to meet you Nap ! Thanks for reply.

      I just saw your blog. You have caused some serious trouble to the layout of the blog.

      Please consider adding the images without uploading the template in notepad. Then you will make no mistake.

      I hope it makes your blog beautiful. All the best.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for making yourself so available to help and for bloggerizing templates for us all. :)

  • In Spanish date options, we don`t have w ‘Wednesday, 4 March, 2008′. We have miercoles, julio 4, 2008, but it doesn`t work. Please what can I do to obtain the rigth configuration?

  • Hi Alvaris!

    Very very nice template, I’m so glad that you converted it to Blogger and I’m using it for my blog. It looks very nice in Firefox, the problem comes with Explorer: margins seems to be out of their place and some pictures can’t come complete. Is there a way to fix it?.

    Thank you in advance for your support, I saw that you reply almost all comments and I know it could be a big work, thank you for that too.

    BTW, I changed the date image for the one on the new template of Smashing Magazine ‘Paper Wall’, hope you don’t mind (or the original author).

    • Hi, Kerubina. Thanks for much for report.

      I just checked your beautiful blog in explorer. Everything seems to be all right.
      Please check again.
      If you still have any problem, then let me know.

      Best wishes.

  • i want to summaries my post i tried to edit script but nothing worked
    can u help

  • i want to summaries my blog post how can i do that

    • Hello. Thanks for your comment again.

      This template does not comes pre equipped with the summarization feature. So you need to learn it from some other site like techieblogger.com

      i hope you got the answer.

  • Hi! I simply adore this template, and I’m looking forward to use it! But it seems to have a little problem…
    The original background is a bit diferent in my blog. It has a kind of a gray bar, in both left and right sides of the white box in the middle. I also notes that in the demo version it appears that way too. Could u please check it out and help me? Its more beautiful without this gray bar!


    From Portugal, I salute u! :-)

  • Hi Falcon, your work are trully amazing !

    by the way, I know you from this blog : http://asiarecipetips.blogspot.com but some how I found that the credits link below the template doesn’t intact here instead of the blog’s url. Does something like this permitted ?

    Actually, I love that blog since I’m interesting in food thingy, If there any of you might know who is the admin for that blog, cause I wanna share some of my recipe.

    Thank before, and keep creative !!

  • sorry, I put an incorrect link on my previous comment, this is the correct one : http://asiarecipestips.blogspot.com/

    thanks !

  • Hi Alvaris..

    I really love this template but I don’t know how to upload it to my new blog. Actually I’m a newbie & don’t know much about HTML or something like that..Is there any tutorial so that I can easily follow..? Anybody please help me solve this problem.. I’ll really appreciate it..

    Thanks in advance..!!


  • hi falcon,
    i love this template so much i dont want to use any other template, but for some reason it will not work. When i uploaded it there wasnt your typical html code but a bunch of boxes and wierd symbols. and then there was an HTML error message that said: “content not allowed in prolog” and then internet explorer just stops working altogether. can you please help me? i really do love this template, its fantastic.

  • where the hell is download link for this template?

  • Hello… First of all, I love this watercolor template. I’ve been successful following directions for other blog templates to get them to work. However, this particular one is giving me trouble.

    I uploaded my pictures to photobucket at LARGE size… as big as I could get it. None of the images are showing up. I just have a plain beige background.

    The DATE is showing up correctly, but there is no lavendar color behind it. I tried the fix it you gave earlier in another blog and couldn’t figure that part out. Perhaps my brain is on a blitz right now.

    I WAS able to get the tab text to show up at the top…so I did that right.

    So, my only dilemma (that I see right now) is getting the actual template to show up.

    Thank you for all of the work you do.
    Any help that you can give would be great. I’m pretty computer literate and decent in HTMl (following directions). Perhaps I’m missing something somewhere.

    Help! :)

  • ok this is the second time that I typed this. I guess I forgot to hit send. In a nut shell…

    first let me say, thank you for such a beautiful template. this is really awesome and unique. I needed something a little more unique.

    I downloaded the template, set the date and navigation buttons which are working fine.

    However, I’m not getting any of the “watercolors”. I uploaded the pictures on photobucket and put the url in the template…. what am I doing wrong? I’m pretty good with computers and following the step by step directions…but, I guess, I missed something somewhere. I’ve retraced my steps three times.

    your help is greatly appreciated. :)

  • lovely layout…..the best that ive found so far … keep up the good work.

  • Anyone figure out how to remove the name under the Post Title?

    • Thank you for your precious response. But i would like to tell you that we do not handle personal customization requests.

      Thanx for using our template at your precious blog.

  • hi..! first of all, this template is very lovely..!! i like it very2 much.. ^^ but if possible i would like to remove the name under each post..could u teach me how to remove them..?? thanks 4 ur help.. =)

  • hi..! first of all, this is a very wonderful template..i really like it very, very much..good work..!!! =)

    but..if possible, i would like to remove the name under each post..could u teach me how to do that..?? your help is very much appreciated.. =)

  • so I got the timestamp and the flickR all figured out w/ no problems. However, I don’t have any tabs at the top that show up on my page, only the date sidebar tabs. What do I need to do to get them to show? Thanks for all of your help!

    • Only if you have left your blog url i would have provided you a better solution. But at present i can only guess that you have out added the images properly. Please check them again..

      Best of luck…

  • Hi there and thank you for a beautiful template! I am having a problem with the tabs at the top showing and my date. I checked your tips and instructions and the comments and did all that you suggested and it still isn’t working. Can you help me please? I would really appreciate any help you can offer.

    Thank you very much and God Bless what you are doing!!


  • Hi, thank you for such a great work for this template and efforts toward every issue people asked.

      all the best…

    • Hi, I found a solution to solve the issue — just enlarge the comment box from height ‘275’ to ‘400’, then all the image(word verification and ‘Post a comment’ icon)can all be seen now. I’m not a coding expert, it really takes me several days to find the solution. Anyway, if you have a better idea to fix the problem, plz do share w me.

      • Hive commentator

        Wow Alice…

        Its great that you have found a solution.


      • hello Alice

        I’ve found your comment to be very useful. However I am not sure how to get to the comment box that needs to be increased to 450 pixels?

        I would really appreciate any help.

        Thank you

  • I just started a blog and decided to use your Water Color template which I just love! Except….

    Is there any way to change the side bar so that it only has the top part of the notepads in the side bar? For whatever reason, the bottom of the notebook covers some of the text in my gadgets and it’s a little annoying.

    Here’s the link to my blog so you can see the problem.


    Thank you in advance!

  • Gorgeous template, thank you!

  • Now I also have a question. I don’t have a Flickr feed and I know I can’t remove the box in the footer since it’s part of the image. Is there a way to move your credit over a bit so it’s inside that box and the whole thing looks a little more deliberate? As you can see, once I removed the Flickr RSS feed, it’s close to being in the right spot.

  • Hi Alvaris,

    The Templatelite.com has released a new version of the Watercolor (v. 1.3) at 2009/05/19, compatible with IE7, IE8, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera.

    Can you please converted it to Blogger?

    Link to the latest version: http://www.templatelite.com/watercolor-free-wordpress-theme/


  • Water Color is such a wonderful template. I’ve used it in my blog. Thank you for the great work.

  • hello alvaris

    i really adore the template the first time i laid eyes on it..so i made it my blog’s template

    however, it seems that the layout doesn’t fill the whole page as shown in the demo..

    i really don’t know what to do and desperately need your help to enlarge the layout so that it fill the whole page when we open it..

    maybe you can take a peek at my page


    thanks in advance


  • Hey man…
    I love you.

    “m a bit new to blogging . After setting up my blogger account i frantically searched for an appropriate, decent but catchy enough template. Water Color is exactly the same.

    Thank you so much for porting it to the blogger.

    Btw, that update linked by Isabela Aragão does address some issues with photos in posts and would be rather useful.

  • Hi there!
    I love this template so much and also want to use it but it does not work at all for me :( Something is very wrong and I am pretty sure I have put images on right place and changed timestamp correctley…
    Check out how it looks: http://suzzitest.blogspot.com/
    Thanks in advance for your help :)

  • Feel like a retard trying understand those codes… I have millions of questions and need good answers before my blog looks the way I want :)

  • I can’t seem to get the flickr link at the bottom to work, I’ve tried to follow your instructions above and no luck. Also the tabs at the top are not showing up… can you please help?


    • You are facing this problem because you have not added the image urls to the template code.

      Best wishes..

      • I actually was successful on getting the flickr to work… however there are still no tabs at the top of my template… can you please help with that? I haven’t seen any info on how to do this…


  • I have noticed that more people than I have same problem with the tabs at top… What is wrong? The page at top is also missing a bit. And where do I put in the linkaddresses for the top tabs?

    /Suzzi in Sweden

    • Thanks for your precious report! I have updated the setup instruction in the post above, please follow the instruction again to setup both top menu tab and Flickr gadget, thank you!

  • Hi Cheri,

    Sincerely thanks for your report! I have checked your blog and confirmed that you have menu gadget installed, can I invite you to follow the ‘Set Up the Navigation Menu’ guide in the post again? Thank you! :)

  • Thanks for bloggerising this gorgeous template.

    I installed the template, added some widgets and everything seems to be working fine. I have however a small problem with the search function on top of the template. When a word is searched, it apparently searches the http://demo.templatelite.com/ site and not my blog. Is there a way to correct this and if so, how should I do this?

    Moreover, I would like to ask the same question as the first commentator : Is there a way to get rid of my name which appears under each post title? As I’m the only one blogging on that page, it is a bit redundant.

    Thanks in advance and keep up the great work.

    • Oops, I forgot to mention the blog URL which is http://bentobliss.blogspot.com/ and I also have a problem with the navigation bar which seems to be out of place. any idea how I could get the tabs aligned to the posting column?

      Thanks again.

      • Ok, last posting (I hope).

        I downloaded the template again from this location and replaced the one I had installed previously and thanks to that my previous problems have all been solved (except for the name under the post title!)

        However another problem has risen with the new template. I uploaded all the pics and rechecked the whole HTML and I didn’t forget any URL. nevertheless as it was the case with nadhira, the files bg_bottom.jpg and bg_top.jpg fail to show up, leaving the design “cropped”.

        I don’t know what I could be doing wrong. Your help would be appreciated (and please forgive the previous posts).


      • Thanks for taking time to leave precious comment and report to us, I’m glad that you love this template!

        I have worked on your all issues and uploaded an updated Water Color Blogger template with all template issues you mentioned fixed, please download again from the download link provided in this post.

        Hope this helps to solve all issues, all the best and enjoy blogging! :D

  • Hi!

    I’d like to use the photo reel but can I use Picasa Web albums instead of Flickr?

    There are also a few things I’ve been trying to tweak. It’s just petty formatting stuff but it would be great if you can help out. Is there a way to make the comment author’s name NOT italicized? I’ve also been trying to align the left margin of the embedded comment form so that it is perfectly aligned to the published comments box above it, but I can’t find the code.

    Thanks for sharing your work.

    – Jackie

  • Hi,

    Is there any way to disable the links in the Flickr badge?

    I’d appreciate the help.


  • Hi,

    This is a beautiful template! I seem to be having problems with setting up the RSS feed. Here is a link to my blog:


    I guess I am unsure what part of the HTML code I need to change, and what I need to insert instead?


  • Hi,

    The sidebar background is too short to accommodate the widgets at the bottom. It works fine in Firefox, but here’s how it looks in IE8: http://i37.tinypic.com/2nhq1sh.jpg and in Chrome: http://i37.tinypic.com/k3ksna.jpg. I haven’t tried it in Safari or Opera. Can I adjust the length of the background so the widgets fit?

    Also, if you’ll notice the picture widget in IE is overlapping with the bottom-most part of the message box. It only does this in IE.

    Would appreciate the help.


  • Hi,

    I’m wondering if anybody else is having the same issue with the Quick Edit link going missing? In Firefox and Chrome, The icons for editing the widgets are there but not for the posts. In IE, only the icon for the Flickr widget appears.

    After doing a bit of research, I tried several workarounds but to no avail. The codes are all there, I’ve made sure the Blogger settings for enabling Post Quick Edit are in order, I’ve cleared my cache and allowed 3rd-party cookies.

    I’m hoping someone can shed some light on this because it’s pretty strange if I’m the only one affected.


  • What a beautiful template. I just felt so peaceful when I saw it and knew this was the one for my site. Thank you for your creativity and for sharing.

  • I would like to know how to add an horizontal index (as in the demo) for others pages?

    Thanks a lot

  • Hi, I just downloaded the template, but I can’t set the date.
    When I make the access into ‘Settings’, under the ‘Formatting’ tab, into the ‘Timestamp Format’there isn’t ‘Wednesday, 4 March, 2008′,but only ‘Wednesday, March 4, 2008’ so when I choose it the date doesn’t change, and anyone of the ‘Timestamp Format’ doesn’t work, so what can I do????
    Thank you very much.

  • Hi! I just wanna thank you for create this template. It’s beautiful!

    I made some changes with colours I hope this doesn’t matter, if this is a problem just let me now and I will change it.

    Thanks a lot


  • Hi, I am having problems with my archive sidebar. Right now, there’s a bottom blue bar below the title of my last archived post AND below the entire Archive sidebar gadget. I’m not sure how to get it to look right. Also, this is less of an issue, but why is there not a blue bar beneath my About Me sidebar? Thanks!

  • hy there I have a problem too,the tabs on the top are not there ,what is the problem?can you help me?.

  • Hey, this is a very cool template.

    But I got a problem with my comment function.
    The visitors can normally write their comment and click on submit, but then, when it asks for the captcha, the field is too small, so the hole review window with the captcha, the word verification, is cut of at the bottom. You can’t write in the captcha and finally submit your comment.
    Would be very great if I get a fast answer to that problem.

  • Hi. I would like to know, how do you change the font for the title of your blog? I do not know anytning about HTML so want to know just what to change. Thanks

    also I alter the width of the sidebar? ? (especially the sidebar.)


    • I am sorry.

      We do not handle Personal Customization Requests.

    • Hey,

      why don’t you just create a picture with the font you want and under Layout | Site elements (or something like that, I’m german ;), the first one, with the widgets) you change the header settings and upload the picture you just did.

      and everything without HTML ;)

      • Hello. It is very nice to meet you.

        We can not Do that for all our users as it would lead to quite many people.

        Moreover, we do not handle personal customization requests.

        Sorry :(

  • Thank you for all your hard work and help with this template. I, unfortunately, need a dummy version of your explanations. I am working on getting the tabs to show up. I assume I need to follow the instructions for how to set up the navigation menu? If this is true, what do you mean by “configure the link gadget setup?” I’m so sorry if this is such an elementary question. Please dumb it down for me (think of me as your grandmother attempting to learn this)! Thank you!

  • I really want to use this template but I have no idea what I am doing. I don’t understand what I have to do when the directions read:
    4. Now you need to upload the images to your server. You can also choose to upload them to free image hosting services like Photobucket.com or Imageshack.us
    5. Open the XML template file in any text editor. Find this text “YOUR-LINK-HERE” and replace it with the URL of the images.

    If you could give me some guidance, that would be super awesome.

  • Hi =) Can I know how to extend the paperclip background/header that part? Cause when i put my cbox, it goes way over the edge, making it look out of place. Do i need to change the html coding, from relative to absolute? Which part is it? I tried myself, but, haha. I’m soo new in this thing, and well, you get the idea. Haha. THANK YOU.

    And, Also, you know the film like thing that is both above and below the blog archive one? The bottom one, covers up some part of my writing. Is there anyway to delete it

    Thank you! I’m so sorrie. I’m new in this.

  • I have 2 questions to ask:

    1) Is there a way to delete the flickr widget at the bottom of the template? Just delete that widget not the box.

    2) How to change the header size so that I can place my photo nicely there?

  • Hello,

  • For the yellow tabs at the top:

    1. “Layout”-> “Page Elements”
    2. “Menu”-> “Edit”
    3. “New Site URL”-> Paste page URL on. (Create the page first)
    4. “New Site Name”-> Change to desired name (i.e. “About Me”)

    Sure, you can follow the ‘Set up the Date’ section in the post to set up the date properly, just noted that you need to change the ‘TimeStamp’ format but not ‘DateHeader’ format.

    Hope this helps, all the best! :D
