    Nice designs. But the instructions are not working for me. There is no feature that allows me to upload the template on Blogger. When I unzip the file, then there is no code to copy and paste. Please advise. I’m using a iBook; does this work for a Mac?

    hi Gis,

    I can finally use this template of yours in my blog and I love it!
    however, it seems that I’m having a problem on changing the font of the posts. I need to change the font so that it suits the new template.
    the first page is OK, but soon as change the font in older posts, it wouldn’t change into what I wanted.
    is this problem related to the template or is it because of
    do you have any tips or solutions for me?
    I’ll appreciate your response.

    thanks a lot Gis. I love your designs and hope to be able to maximize it soon.
