    Dear. As I noted, the Advance Editor will be disabled when you enable mobile template (see in document). Mean you can use editor but it's not affect in real. This is official bug of Blogger, they are still working to fix. So, if you want to change or use advance editor, you must use before enable mobile template. Thank you.

    Hi, tiennguyenvan! I loved this template, it is really nice! I installed it in my test blog (http://tepemfoco.blogspot.com.br/) and later on may official one (http://www.episodioemfoco.com/). But when I'm on the HTML editor and I try to visualize it, the posts don't appear on my official blog, only on the test blog. Can you help me, pelase? Is this because I have installed it in two places?

    Hi, I have couple of queries. 1. How can we add see all link (or something like it) in the end of home page widgets which provide list of posts for one label. I feel user need some actionable link at the end, so they can browse all items related to that label, if they want. Currently they just lost (I know you have link at the label heading itself, but user will not go above and click there, because there is no instruction) 2. When I add more then 12 or 14 items for home page widget other then solid, the list get break and empty spaces start showing. 3. How can I add latest posts as widget on home page. Please tell me how to go about it. Thanks Mrityunjay

    I love your theme and I found it easy and handsome. One thing about Google Analytics. Where should I insert a tracking ID? 1) Should I insert it into the Weblog Analysis Web Property ID in the Setting-Other section in the Blogger Configure ? 2) or should I insert it into the HTML Editor in the Template section (before '')? Looking forward to your reply!

In case, you did it, I think you deleted some posts or labels that you selected in the widgets. Please check again all Label widgets I said above, make sure you check one label for each widget.

    You can see that your template's width is little bit smaller and compressed as compare to the second another template which is also responsive but its template's width is more stretched one and cover the whole background area screen.

    I want you to please done the same so that content can cover more spare area. :)

    Hi Tien, I 'm here again. Due to the menu/submenu issue I mentioned before, and due to the fact I didn't remember what I did when I create those strange links, I decided to begin from zero with a new domain, www.entreveo.blogspot.com. Now I have the menu working (not using submenu at this time), even though I wonder if I´m doing things right. Could you tell me whether I should have listed the labels of the menu titles where labels are configured?, because now in Labels links, under Selected labels it shown "0 of 0". Do labels appear when they are designated in posts? Or they should be created before writing posts? In this case how I create labels? I don´t understand this part in the documentation Thanks for your help, Neity

    Dear, If you see "0 of 0" mean your blog has no label. You must add label to posts: https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/44498?hl=en Thanks.
