    Hi, When I went to download “coffee desk” as my background into my blogspot page, the HTML came up in symbols of squares etc. How do I fix this?

    Thank you

  2. Swank Says:

    Hmm you mean the symbol of squares came up on your blogspot? If so, can you show me your blog so I can take a look at what the error is.

  3. Sara Says:

    why when i downloaded this template does a red “undefined” show up where the date should be? how do i fix this?

  4. Sara Says:

    also, how do i edit fonts/sizes/etc. on this template? when i go to edit in blogger, nothing shows up:/

  5. Swank Says:

    Hi there,

    Regarding the post date:

    After login, go to Layout > Page Elements > edit Blog Posts > change time format to long date (e.g Wednesday, June 17, 2009). Remember, change time format NOT date format.

    It would be the 3rd field.

  6. Sara Says:

    thanks so much! i fixed it!

  7. melisa Says:

    how do i include a chatbox inside?

  8. Admin Says:

    Which chatbox are you using? Chatango or tagboard?

  10. Elizabeth Says:

    I was wondering if there was any way to add the expandable posts html? I tried to do per some other instructions and blogger wouldn’t upload the template with the changes. Anyone able to do this?

  11. Swank Says:

    Hi Elizabeth, not sure what you meant by expandable posts html. But the current version of Blogger is in XML and not HTML hence putting anything in HTML in would not work.

  12. Dana Says:

    I am using this template & love it. I tweaked the code a little to customize my header, fonts & colors on my site. It is working great for me & I get ton’s of compliments on it. My only con for this template is that in the past I used Window’s Live Writer to write my posts on & then transfer to my blog & for some reason, I’m not sure of, it won’t work with this template. Other than that, I have no complaints! If you know just a little html code you can do a lot with this template.

  13. SweetPea Rice Says:

    OK…My time format (the third field in the edit blog post section of the Edit Layout screen) is formatted corrected; but if you look at my blog, it’s populating all my blogs with the same date field. This is quite irritating…Can you offer suggestions….I’m at my wits end & truly love this layout! It’s taken me quite some time to find one that suited me so perfectly and I just want it to work right.

    Finding people to follow it and interact with it is difficult as well; but I know you can’t help with that.

    Please help me figure out what the problem is with the date….PLEASE *begging here*

  14. Swank Says:

    Hi SweetPea, are you sure you are using that template that is downloaded from here? Cos it seems like the current template you are using is downloaded from another site hence the date problem. The comment poster above you her blog url is and there is no problem for her date.

  15. SweetPea Rice Says:

    That was my next thought that the place where I originally found this layout had something wrong with the code altogether. Thanks for the reply, downloading from here was going to be my next step. Worked like a charm! Many thanks!!!

    Dairy design…..

  17. Thea Says:

    Tnx it is so cool. I love it.

  18. ata Says:

    hey,i dunno how to fix this…..even i try a lot to removed UNDEFINED sign in red colour upper my post it still not work….can you help me???i try as you said before by using long date format but it still not wokk!!!!also about the function to edit the fonts it is nothing there….also about the element in the template was can not drag anywhere we want….why???

  19. AJ Says:

    Okay… this is going to sound really dumb. Sorry for my ignorance. I am only new to blogging, and one of the things which convinced me to really give it a go was this template. I’ve uploaded the template, fixed the date thing and it’s all looking good. However, before I uploaded the template, I had a little bar at the top which had links to creating posts etc which is not there now. The only way I can see at the moment to create a new post is to log in to the dashboard part of blogger and do it there. At the moment, all I can do on the page is read the content, search (with the pen which is so cool) and leave comments. Am I missing something?
    Thanks for your time.

  20. AJ Says:

    Sorry, me again. In the picture up above, it also has what I think are tags (?) at the very top of the page. “Home” “Posts RSS” etc. How do I get them please?

  21. James Swank Says:

    Hi AJ,

    That little menu navigation bar at the top is for the default blogger templates only. Normally blogger made designs by designers does not include that little top bar.

    For the home, post rss etc. Currently you do not see them right? They are actually menu navigation but is not found on blogger template. Only available on wordpress template.

  22. AJ Says:

    Hi James,

    Thanks very much for your reply. It makes things much clearer.

  23. WAQAS Says:

    At least I Found Theme of mine Dreams

  24. DIpti Says:

    Hi There, I love your coffee template. It makes my blog look wonderful. Just one help needed, I want to change the header font – could you please help me with it?

  25. DiJah Says:

    Hey, I love this template and I want to use it but I also want to keep my widgets, i’m not tech savvy so I dont know how to tweak stuff, so i’m asking, is it possible to keep my site tracker, and following list?
    looking forward to your reply. thank u!

  26. Dana Says:

    Depending on what kind of site tracker you have, you can copy and paste the code in a word doc & paste it back in to a widget after you have uploaded your template. Any other buttons you had, just copy & paste into a word doc.

    Your following list should be fine. The blogrolls & such usually stay there.

  27. Eny Says:


    I think I have the same problem with the other. I’m not an IT savvy thus I had problems to put everything I sued to have before after I download this template coz I forgot to saved the old template first.

    My 1st prob is about the date. I’ve tried to changed it numerous time according to what you said but nothing happen. How do I changed it then?

    My 2nd prob is that the normal tab at the top where I can create new post and all is missing. How do I get it back?

    How do I changed the header?

    More question later. Thanks!

  28. Swank Says:

    Hi Eny,

    Have you tried the solution fix on the 5th comment on this page?

    For your 2nd problem, those are blogger navi links and I am afraid they do not appear on custom templates. They appear only on blogger default templates. To write a new post, you have to go to blogger dashboard and write new posts from there.

    Which header are you referring to? Header image or header font or color?


  29. ary Says:

    i luv tis template 2…
    n i think my problem is just the same..

    1st: how can i make the top bar appear??
    2nd:is it possible for me to change the font an size and to do it?

  30. Swank Says:

    Hi Ary,

    Which top bar are you referring to?

    No its not possible to change the font size.

  31. Eny Says:

    Hi Swank,

    Thanks for your prompt reply. I’ve fix the first prob and I’m still trying to get use to this new template.

    I wanted to change my header of the blog itself. Can I change the fonts?


  32. Swank Says:

    Hi Eny,

    When you say the header, are you referring to the header image or the fonts? The fonts regretably cannot be changed by the blogger’s dashboard as this is a template that was converted from wordpress. If you really want to change the font type, color and size you can still do that. But you would need to do this via ‘Layout’ -> ‘Edit HTML’ and do a CTRL + F search for keyword: #blogtitle

    The 1st result of blogtitle will show you the css code which includes the font color, style, type etc. Feel free to change that to your liking. Remember to backup your current file first by copying the whole contents of the codes in ‘Edit HTML’ and saving it into a .xml extension file. Hope that helps!


  33. Sara E. Says:

    Hey! I’m not really sure what went wrong with my blog. I uploaded the template and it turned out like this…
    Please help! Thanks!

    Sara E.

  34. admin Says:

    Hi Sara, is this a new blog you setup?

    I have never come across this problem before. Can you try re-uploading the template again?

  35. ANDY ODANKZ Says:

    thankz before . . . I hope u help me ,. . . .

  36. Swank Says:

    Hi Andy,

    All you need is to go to ‘Layout’ -> ‘Edit HTML’ and upload the CoffeeDesk.xml file and you are good to go.

  37. Zoe Says:

    Hello Swank

    I have the same result as Sara E (Dec 2 2009 comment)


  38. Admin Says:

    Hmm, Zoe how did you upload the template? Did you upload by the upload text field function in Blogger or you manually copy the codes of the template into the blog?

  39. Admin Says:

    Hmm ok I see the error now, let me ask my coder to fix it.

  40. Admin Says:

    This template Blogger platform has problem with it, not sure why but somehow the code does not work anymore though it works when previously installed. I am afraid this template will not work anymore.

  41. nirelwof Says:


    this template work fine on my blog. its cool. however, there’s something i would like to ask. how can i add the Quick Edit link after each post?? is it possible to do so??

  42. Admin Says:

    Hi Nirelwof,

    Yes its possible but I am afraid I dont know how. Would be best to just go through the dashboard to edit any posts.

  43. nirelwof Says:

    very well then. thanx anyway and happy new year. =)

  44. Mahesh Aravindan Says:

  51. Chelle Says:

    Is there a way I can figure out the sizes of my sidebars? I am pretty computer illiterate, but managed to put up this template and want to add an an advertisement and need to know what size I am able to. I went to the edit html and looked through the code (is that the right word? lol) to try to find keywords like sidebar and such, but there are three sidebars listed. Here’s the first one that I see:
    margin: 80px 39px 0 0;
    padding:0px 0 0px 0px;
    Here’s the 2nd:
    color: #999999;
    The third is the same as the 2nd just right float, etc. So do I assume my sidebar is 163 pixels? Sorry if I sound like an idiot. TIA!

  52. susi Says:

    hai swank, i can try to fix time format with your way, but thats not work. owh plz.. what should i do ??

  53. mijud Says:

  54. Ira Says:


    Is there any way I could change the width of the diary? Its too narrow and when a long post is written it ends up being too long. I have refurbished my template quite a bit but this is one thing I could not figure out. When I change the different widths associated with the diary, the center spiral doesn’t align.

  83. Swank Says:

    Hi Nickary,

    I am sorry but of all templates here, this is the only one that cannot be downloaded due to some code errors. Please download another template thanks.

  84. Cure Your Acne Says:

    it performs perfect… just founded the IIS server .

  85. Franksgreengirl Says:

    I have just downloaded this template and so far so good. I would suggest if possible to add a blurb in the text area of the download that states how to change the time format to the long version so as not to get the big red bold “undefined” message. Other than that so far so good. I am going to try posting a trial post since I am updating for the year, but will definitely show some monetary love if there are no other issues. Thanks for the great design and sophistication in this template.

  86. Admin Says:

    Hi Franksgreengirl,

    To change the undefined date message:

    After login, go to Layout > Page Elements > edit Blog Posts > change time format to long date (e.g Wednesday, June 17, 2009). Remember, change time format NOT date format.

    It would be the 3rd field.

  89. Franksgreengirl Says:

    I have been using this since January. After updating the page elements area for the time and date I have had no issues to speak of until I tried to integrate the social media elements into the page. I highly recommend this template, but there are a couple bugs that should be looked at. I definitely contributed because I think it should still be in circulation. Thanks again for a great product!
