  1. @SLRC

    To add facebook box can use this code:

    <iframe src=";width=292&amp;colorscheme=light&amp;show_faces=true&amp;stream=false&amp;header=false&amp;height=258" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:292px; height:258px;" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

    when using it, if you get error then use this:

    &lt;iframe src=&quot;;amp;width=292&amp;amp;colorscheme=light&amp;amp;show_faces=true&amp;amp;stream=false&amp;amp;header=false&amp;amp;height=258&quot; scrolling=&quot;no&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; style=&quot;border:none; overflow:hidden; width:292px; height:258px;&quot; allowtransparency=&quot;true&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;

  11. Dear Mr. Bandara,

    I love your templates (I have a blog with one of your templates), and I think they are really easy to customizate, but I have a problem.

    I would like to extend the posts that appear in the mainpage. This means that I would like to extend the number of words that appear in each post before clicking on it.

    I have been trying for 2 days to find out the code to solve this problem, but I haven't any clues.

    Thank you very much in advance

  12. Hi, I really like you template I want to use this one instead of your newer version with some mods however, the only problem I'm having is the slider, It works fine on the homepage but when you click through to a post the slider expands across the pages and covers the post, I have taken a screenshot for you to see,,

  13. Hi

    Have you thought of a fix for this yet?

    I really want to use your template but this issue is stopping me
