WP Premium Template

Click to enlarge WP Premium Blogger template


After hours of code editing and tweaking, I’d like to welcome WP Premium Red to the eBlog Templates library. This gorgeous and powerful three column fixed width template originally designed for WordPress, can now be yours for free (all I ask of you is to please keep the footer links intact as a token of our hard work making this for you).

I’m sure most of you have seen this premium free theme before and wished it was available for Blogger. Many WordPress users were shocked to see this theme available by R.Bhavesh for free, including myself. I love the simple yet nicely laid out design. It reminds me a lot of the ProBlogger site which is in a league of it’s own.

I’d also like to note that there are no javascript external file dependencies in this Blogger template. Most free templates you download with javascript features link out to an external .js file and while the template might work well at first, it’s only a matter of time before it breaks.

All of the template images are also hosted on our Pro Photobucket account which has unlimited bandwidth. For you that means the images will always be there and not suddenly disappear at the end of the month. You might want to copy these images to your own server regardless just so you’ve got complete control of them.

This Blogspot template includes all the features of the original WordPress theme (even the javascript side bar tabs!) and all you need to do is configure them.

Features include:

  • RSS feed
  • Feedburner subscribe to email
  • Three 125×125 ad spots
  • Dynamically created header tabs
  • Search bar
  • Very cool sidebar tab switching without the page reloading (Never used on a Blogger template before!)
  • Recent comments and posts widgets
  • Topics and Blogroll widgets
  • Footer link widget

Configuration

This template was built to make it easy for you to setup without touching much of the code. Most sections were built using widgets so you’ll just need to edit each one accordingly. Follow the steps below to correctly setup the template so it will look like the screen shot above.

Before we begin, I want to point out the very cool sidebar tab switching feature. You probably didn’t notice it right away so look at the search box on the right side. Notice the second tab called “Categories” and click on it. Assuming you’ve got at least one category, you’ll instantly switch without the page reloading. Pretty cool huh? This was part of the original design for WordPress and eBlog Templates specially converted it over to Blogger using Javascript.

Header Tabs

When you first load up the template, you won’t see any tabs. Don’t worry, it’s working properly and you just need to add new tabs. Unlike other Blogger templates, you don’t need to edit the code to add or remove tabs. Just go into the page element area and click on “edit” within the “Top Tabs” widget. Surprise, it’s a simple link list widget so just add as many tabs as you want with ease.

Subscribe to Feed Via Email

This section you actually need to edit the code to make it work properly. It’s wired up to work with Feedburner and all you need to do is pop in your id. Edit the template code and look for this section:

<input type="hidden" value="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~e?ffid=YOUR-FEED-ID-HERE" name="url"/>
<input type="hidden" value="YOUR BLOG NAME HERE" name="title"/>

Replace the YOUR-FEED-ID-HERE and YOUR BLOG NAME HERE with the appropriate values given to you from Feedburner.

If you have an Feedburner account, you’ll want to setup your RSS feed as well. Right above the section you just edited, you’ll find this code:

<a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl + "feeds/posts/default"'><span class='rss'/></a>

Replace <a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl + "feeds/posts/default"'> with something like this <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/YOUR-FEED-HERE">. Read our “How to Setup Feedburner on Blogger” article for more details.

100 x 100 Ad Spots

This section is just an html widget so you can either delete it or paste in a few ads. The default ads will disappear once you fill the html widget box so don’t worry about touching the code. There’s nothing special about the ad formatting. The current ad code looks like this:

<a href="#"><img src="http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/eblogtemplates/wppremium/thumb1.gif"/></a>
<a href="#"><img src="http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/eblogtemplates/wppremium/thumb2.gif"/></a>
<a href="#"><img src="http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh92/eblogtemplates/wppremium/thumb3.gif"/></a>

Recent Posts & Comments

Next we’re going to move down the sidebar and setup the recent posts and recent comments widgets. Instructions have already been written in another article so please read “How to Setup Your Recent Comments & Posts” post.

Topics and Blogroll

These are just simple link lists so feel free to remove them or add links to them. There’s plenty of sidebar space since there’s two sidebar columns.

Ads Widget

This small html widget defaults to a Text Link Ads button as an example. Once you put something in the html box, this default ad will disappear. If you haven’t heard of Text Link Ads before you might want to take a look. It’s a great site which allows you to sell links on your blog. Read more about Text Link Ads for Blogger.

Footer Link Widget

Just like the original WordPress design, this template also has the option to add footer links to match the top tabs. Unfortunately there isn’t a way in Blogger to automatically print out the same set of tabs so if you want to use this feature you’ll just need to enter the exact same tabs in this link widget.

footer-links.png

This is what it should look like once you’ve added a few links. Some people don’t bother even using this widget so feel free to remove it or just not add any links to it.

Thanks to R.Bhavesh for the amazing design and deciding to give it away for free. I’d also like to thank Ivan over at Zona Cerebral for which portions of his template were used in creating this enhanced version. Template was converted into the new xml Blogger format by eBlog Templates.

Revision History

Update (2/15/08): This template has been updated to include the Blogger page element layout editor missing scrollbar fix. I’ve added several new css elements like body#layout CSS selector to add CSS styles that adapt templates to the editor.

Update (2/17/08): A bug was found in the search widget of this template (thanks Kenneth) which has been fixed. Anyone who downloaded this template prior to 2/17 will need to either re-download the template or make an easy one character fix to their existing template. I recommend backing up your template before you make this change. The fix is as follows:

Search your existing template for the following bit of code and replace the “s” with a “q“.

value="Search on this blog…" name="<strong><font color="#ff0000">s</font></strong>"
should be
value="Search on this blog…" name="<strong><font color="#ff0000">q</font></strong>"

After you make this change, save your template and the search box should now work properly. Sorry for the bug but at least it’s an easy fix right?

Update (2/18/08): A new bug was found in the individual posts section (thanks Nick). The date was being shown twice in the post header. If you downloaded this template prior to 2/18, you can easily fix this without downloading it again. Go into your template layout editor and edit the blog posts module. Uncheck the 3rd box down and save. It should now be fixed.

Update (4/22/08): The previous 100 x 100 ad spots weren’t very popular and have been replaced with 4 of the more standard 125 x 125 size banners. The default comes with four great ads which you can either keep or replace with your own. I recommend keeping them if you currently don’t have any ads to use. Then click through and sign up with each of the 4 ads and put your own version on your blog instead.

This template isn’t working anymore … something happened to the colors in the main column.


   
Dave on Jun 9, 2009, 11:48 am  

Same thing here — worked for months just fine until this morning. First the background was dark, now it’s back to light but missing the lines around the main content column. Plus now the red header is devoid of color and the RSS icon and the other subscriber graphics don’t appear. And my custom favicon disappeared, replaced with the orange Blogger B for no apparent reason.

The images seem to be fine on Photobucket, so is this something Blogger did that makes it not play nice with the WPPremium template?


   
Pedro Sá on Jun 9, 2009, 11:54 am  

i am having the same problem here. =/


   
David on Jun 9, 2009, 10:02 pm  

For some reason Photobucket is having problems serving up images for all templates on this site. I’ve contacted them directly and it should be resolved soon.

Short-term solution – If you move all the images to your own image hosting site (photobucket is free) then you won’t have to rely on our images (which have never been a problem up until today.

Thanks,

David

Jessica1101 on Oct 22, 2009, 7:45 pm  

Not sure what is wrong, when I download the template I get a word formatted text doc, not html/xml(?) written code to copy and paste into my blog.


   
Jessica1101 on Oct 23, 2009, 7:29 pm  

All seems to be good now, except one thing, the edit colors feature in blogger is disabled with this template. Is there a solution to this?

Thanks.


   
Jessica1101 on Oct 24, 2009, 8:56 am  

I’m figuring things out as I go along, but have some questions if someone can answer them.

1. How do I get rid of the links above the top post on the page? The ones that read Ads by Google, Blogger, Hotmail MSN, etc.

2. I pasted the variables code from my previous blog into this html code, but the variable names do not match up with the type. Do the code writers for this blog have a variable list for this template which matches up that can be provided?

3. The sidebar switching feature, how can I add ‘tabs’ to it, to possible include my archives list and subscribe options similar to this blog:
http://www.younghouselove.com/

I realize this may take some writing on my part, but I know the basics and am figuring it out.

4. My rss button and subscribe by email box are not lining up. I didn’t edit that code from your template.

5. The toptab bar is duplicating my first entry. Any help with this?

This is the blog in draft that I am trying to fix.

Many thanks for the help.

Why are there so many themes that results in errors? Is it bad code? Did Blogger do something?

The new widget id “Recent-Comments-Widget” is invalid for type: Feed

You will NOT be able to install this until this is cleared up.

I had uploaded the template, when i saved the template, there was an error mesage like this :

We were unable to save your template

Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.
The new widget id �Recent-Comments-Widget� is invalid for type: Feed


   
ajaykumarsingh on Jan 13, 2010, 5:34 am  

IMPORTANT!!!
Solution for following type of errors
“Recent-Comments-Widget” is invalid for type: Feed …
You will bet more errors if you solve one.

The problem, as someone has explained above, is due to change in the blogspot system itself.

I spent some time figuring it out as no one has explained it clearly. But solution is very simple.

The Solution:
1) Open the wp-premium-red-blogger.xml file in any text editor (notepad/textpad) or Dreamweaver

2) Search for Recent-Comments-Widget
you will see following line

3) The fix is to change the id to match with type
So you have to change Recent-Comments-Widget to Feed123 or something similar but keep the word Feed in it as prefix.

Teh modified line would become

Recent-Comments-Widget is replaced by Feed123

You can use any name you wish but you have to keep the Feed in it in the beginning.

4) Save file and upload again

Well that is not the end, you will see the next error. And you have to follow the same above procedure to fix them.

Any where you see mismatch between type and id you have to change the id to match the type. All you have to do is to change the id to be same as type and add some random numbers after it. Also remember to keep id to be unique


   
ajaykumarsingh on Jan 13, 2010, 5:36 am  

Opps!!! formatting messed it up
Point 2:
Search for Recent-Comments-Widget
you will see following line


   
ajaykumarsingh on Jan 13, 2010, 5:37 am  

Sorry guys can’t post the original code line
posting partial…

Point 2:
Search for Recent-Comments-Widget
you will see following line

id=’Recent-Comments-Widget’ locked=’false’ title=’Recent Comments’ type=’Feed’


   
mrsmarycandice on Jan 17, 2010, 10:25 pm  

I really like this template. Thank you for creating this an offering it at no cost.

I do have a question: The ‘subscribe via email’ link is larger than the brown header background. How can I make the header taller?
