  10. Hi Chandeep,

    Can you tell me that, what could be the best practices to speedup our blog? is there any tool to combined all CSS and JAVA SCRIPT files into one combined file so it can reduce the load time of our blog?

    Thanks for your time.

    1. Hi Rizwan,

      There are some tools to combine css and javascripts but It's not the best solution because sometime it'll crash the scripts.

      Best Practice is to make it manually.

      P.S. Kindly ask of topic question through email. Thanks :)

  14. Hi Chandeep,

    Thank you for this template.

    I uploaded it to my new blog, and I'm editing the items as you explained above. After adding my image, I clicked "Save Template" but I'm receiving the following error message:

    Error parsing XML, line 18, column 10: The processing instruction target matching "[xX][mM][lL]" is not allowed.

    What should I do so that I can save my blog?

    Thank you!

  15. Oops, never mind! I logged out of my blog and then went back in and tried editing the HTML a second time, and it worked. I don't know what I did wrong the first time, but it's okay now.

    Thanks again. This is a beautiful template!

    1. Hi Vicki, Glad the problem was solved, Thanks for using Siril

      To add Pinterest icon add the following CSS code before ]]></b:skin>

      ul.author-social li.pinterest { background: url("http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-OHo_qurvr30/U2zTHemyp4I/AAAAAAAAC-E/f0yL3cO1fvg/s1600/pinterest.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0); }

      After that add the following html code next to (Facebook, Twitter and Google+) links to show the icon.

      <li class="pinterest"><a href="YOUR-PINTEREST-PROFILE-URL">Pinterest</a></li>

      Now save your Template, That's all :)

      P.S. Replace YOUR-PINTEREST-PROFILE-URL with your Pinterest Profile url.

  20. Hello, I'm currently using your theme on my blog, but I was wondering if it is possible to add a footer area for me to stick follower and subscriber gadgets. I don't like having them at the bottom of the posts as they make it look cluttered (totally unlike the rest of the theme) and the sidebar is already long enough without adding them there.

    Thanks,
    Rachel

  21. You could have setup that Meet the author widget below every post, which is currently on Home page of this template. This will make some sense. :)

  34. First I just want to say that I absolutely adore your templates! But this one is by far my favorite. It is just what I was looking for for my blog. This isn't my first time using a custom template so I thought I wouldn't have any trouble replacing your info and links with my own, especially since you've been kind enough to provide instructions. But I can't seem to locate the codes we need to replace in the HTML. Such as the "Meet the Author" section. I can't find that code anywhere in the HTML. I've been through it over and over again thinking I must have just missed it but it's just not there. So I don't know what to do now. I really, really want to use this template, because it is just perfect, but I won't be able to if I can't put my own info/picture into it. :-(
    I really hope you get this and can help me figure out what I am doing wrong.
    Thank you!
    Kelly
