    Hi, I visit your site regularly for new templates and even I recommend my friends only because of the quality templates available here. In this template I really like that Twitter and rss feed icon:-)

    wow…what a nice cool template. Mmmm…keep it up bro… i always come here every week [ once a week,sometimes… ;) ] Have good day bro…

  9. Ankur June 16, 2009 at 4:24 pm

    wonderful…will change to this from toughpress

    but before i change one qustion…can we add more icon links next to the twitter icon…like i want to add my facebook link with facebook icon, myspace link with myspace icon…and so on…

    • Alvaris Falcon June 20, 2009 at 12:18 pm

      Thanks for your kind words, Ankur. ;)

      Sure, as the RSS icon is the single image, you can probably replace it with other social network icon’s image with suitable size, some CSS skill might be required during the customization.

      Hope this answers your precious question well. :)

    This is a wonderful template, I love it! Thanks for making it work on blogger although I dont like how the bubbles on the right header are on the image and not tied to the rss & twitter images but oh well.

    I do have a question though. I have been trying to use the INSERT TEXT TO BE HIDDEN HERE code but it isn’t hiding my text and I still get the “Read More” Function at the end of the full blog. Any advice on how to fix it?

    • Alvaris Falcon July 6, 2009 at 12:52 pm

      Thanks for your very kind comment and report! Sure, I have updated the post to show the correct code, you can follow the “Set up the ‘Read More’ feature” section in the post to hide the article’s content properly.

      Hope this helps, all the best. ;)

    • Hive commentator July 4, 2009 at 10:14 am

      Thanks for ur precious comments, David.

      You are facing this problem because editing your post in the “Compose Section” . Please use the “Edit HTML” section to add the SPAN tags.

      Also, make sure you have not closed the tags more than once.

      I hope this helps.

  24. Stephens01234 August 17, 2009 at 9:06 pm

    Can you tell me how to remove the “read more” option? I would my posts to display all the text each time. Readers are complaining about having to click ‘read more’ before being able post a comment.

    • David August 18, 2009 at 3:38 pm

      Go to the HTML and expand the widgets then search for the word “continue” there should be 2 instances of that word, once is as a thank you for using this template, the other one part of a line of code that has the words “continue reading”
      If you just delete those words then you should be fine.

      • Hive commentator August 21, 2009 at 2:48 pm

        Thank you very much for supporting our community. Thanks.

    • Stephens01234 August 17, 2009 at 9:18 pm

      Just guessing that is has something to do with removing this section or pieces of this section. Any help would be appreciated.

      • Stephens01234 August 17, 2009 at 9:24 pm

        Ok, delete this one and the previous one. I tried to paste in code I thought it might be, but it didn’t work.

  25. Paulo Franca August 17, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    Dear Sir or Madam, how do you do?

    I’m writing to you because I have your template on my blog/site and Internet Explorer 8 has come up with an error message

    Can you help solve this issue? Thanks in advance.

    • Hive commentator August 18, 2009 at 4:19 pm

      Thanks for your report.

      We have never faced this issue before with this template.

      You are getting this error because of the Google Friend connect module on your blog.
      This is an error from the blogger. You can read about at .

      All the best.

  26. Paulo Franca August 29, 2009 at 4:51 am

    Dear Friends, how are you?

    RSS Validator – I’ve used the feed validator service at

    The result was: “Congratulations!
    [Valid RSS] This is a valid RSS feed.”

    However, the website gave me one recommendation:
    “This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations:
    line 1, column 16355: Missing atom:link with rel=”self”

    Then, when I clicked on “help” link I was sent to a web page with the following message:
    “Missing atom:link with rel=”self”
    Explanation: According to the RSS Advisory Board’s Best Practices Profile, identifying a feed’s URL within the feed makes it more portable, self-contained, and easier to cache. For these reasons, a feed should contain an atom:link used for this purpose.

    If you haven’t already done so, declare the Atom namespace at the top of your feed, thus:

    Then insert a atom:link to your feed in the channel section. Below is an example to get you started. Be sure to replace the value of the href attribute with the URL of your feed.

    So, due to the above, I’d like you to kindly assist me solve this issue. I don’t know where to change in the template. Thanks in advance.

    • Hive commentator August 30, 2009 at 4:35 am

      Dear Paola,

      this is not an template issue at all, so i can not provide you any help….

      Best of luck for your future..

  27. Paulo Franca September 3, 2009 at 8:02 am

    Guys, you’d better see how this template renders with Google Chrome, and Safari. I had to go back to my previous template when I saw it. I couldn’t believe my eyes. It needs a fix urgently. When there is an update, please let me know. Thanks for your time. Thanks in advance.

    • Hive commentator September 6, 2009 at 6:39 am

      Thanks for the report. We will let you know the solution to this error shortly.

      • Hive commentator September 12, 2009 at 10:04 am

        Thanks for your kind words…

      • PAULO FRANCA September 10, 2009 at 6:58 pm

        I’m so sorry, guys! I suppose I’ve committed a mistake while editing the template, so I wrote the above, and picked another one on blogger. Again, sorry! I’ve just managed to reverse my template back to this wonderful one, and now it renders just all right with ALL browsers I tested. Many thanks & all the best. Blue Diamond is awesome! I couldn’t live without it for long.

  28. Michael Blanz October 10, 2009 at 2:48 am


    first of all i want ti say you: This is a realy fantistic theme!
    I´v a little Question: Can i change some words in another Language, for example german?

    This are some of the words i like to Change:
    “Read More” or “Featured Post”

    Thank you very much.
    Greetings from Bavaria

    • Hive Commentator October 10, 2009 at 1:07 pm

      Hi Michael,

      You can definitely make those changes. Go to the “edit html” page. Select Expand Widget Template, and search do the text “read more” and replace it with the text you want.

    Absolutely love this template. But I’m doing it so wrong.. as you can see here I can upload the template etc. But I’m struggling with the images. I upload them (some wont upload) and change the HTML codes with the URL. But as you can see on the blog, I’m failing miserably.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
