    I love this template and tried to use it, but on my blog the date shows “undefined” “undefined” “undefined”. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi! Thank you for this wonderful theme. :) Im using it here –> http://starksilhouettes.blogspot.com/
    Just want to ask how to change the spaces between my sidebar elements. As you can see in my blog, the sidebar elements are so close together. Hope you could teach me how to add/have just a tad of space in between the sidebar elements.

    Thank you! Keep on.

    First. I love the template. I customized the header, but kept everything else in tact.

    That said, I’m with John earlier in the comments – Could you provide a little help with how to create more space between the search bar and the first widget, and between all of the other widgets.

    Hi I did what you told in your “Read Me”. But it fails to work…
    First of all when I paste upload the xml file it says “Your new template does not include the following widgets”, so I kept the widgets and then changed picture links as you told.
    But the final result is that the whole middle part is lifted upwards, and thus the top and bottom horizontal lines are not in-line with the left/right top and bottom horizontal lines:

    -Dearest Friend,
    I got this cute template for my blogger blog, but I’d like to use the double right sidebar.
    As I have to replace every image I really have no idea of how doing it.
    I’ve added images =no way
    I’ve modified measures = no way
    I’ve added only double right sidebar images = no way.

    Could you please write a tutorial of “How to get a double rightsidebar template?”

    Thank you so much! :)

    I tried to add the share buttons for facebook etc. in my blog posts on blogger. Is it possible to use them with Elegant Grunge?

    • Page November 2, 2011 at 11:22 pm

      Never mind I found it on the blogger site. Had to check the Expand Widget Templates. That did it. Thanks for your work.

  25. Ken December 12, 2011 at 7:53 am

    I still don’t get it. After uploading the template, the gadgets are all over my site. The upper gadgets can’t be move on places. Can someone help me? I really like this template.
