Hi JK, what exactly didn’t work?

Rui Zamith on Feb 1, 2008, 10:35 am  

Blogger doesn’t accept the final code.. I’ve uploaded the images, changed the link names correctly, but blogger gives me an XML error:

XML: The content of elements must consist of well-formed character data or markup.

Sorry, I should have mentioned it but this template only works with the old “Classic Blogger”. You probably tried to use it with the new xml Blogger mode and that’s why you got an error. You can either try again using Classic Blogger or pick another template from our site. Sorry for the confusion!

And how do I change it to “classic blogger”? It’s a pity, the template is really amazing.


David Cowgill on Feb 2, 2008, 8:57 am  

You’d go into “Template” => “Edit HTML” and at the bottom of the page you’ll see a link that says “Revert to Classic Template”. Then you’ll be back in Classic HTML mode and you can use this template.

Just remember, you will lose any widgets or sidebar elements from the xml Blogger so hopefully you don’t have any you want to keep.

Good luck Rui. I hope this template works out for you!

I’ve been using this template for some time now and I’ve recently encountered a problem with the commenting section. I was reading a comment posted on one of my blog entries and wanted to reply by clicking on the “leave your response” link. This link didn’t work at all. I would expect a textbox form to come up but nothing appeared. Is there anything wrong with that section of code in the template?
