  13. Hi! I have a question, but first let me say: Thank your for making this awesome template!

    So, my question is: How do I remove the icons associated to the labels?

    I'm making a blog for a friend who does News, and the icons don't match, so I'd like to remove them.

    I'm learning HTML and CSS slowly, but if you can tell me where to look in the code, I don't think it might be difficult to remove them. Thank you for your time!

    1. It's easy but you have to do it through coding.

  14. how to change magma contact ? where i can take and customized "form contact" for that ?

    1. We will fix the contact widget in next update till then use bloggers official one.

  15. I cant get the next and previous page i get only newest and oldest post
    i get this
    but i want this

    1. will you be more specific about the issue ?

  16. i have the site
    in the demo view i have the next and previous buttons like this picture
    but when i install the template in my blogger i get only two buttons oldest and newest like this picture
    how to get next and previous buttons like in demo view

    1. Remove the latest Comment widget from layout.

    2. You haven't removed the widget.

    3. I removed the widget from the side bar beside popular and recent posts .
      but nothing changed i still get only older posts' button

    4. Have you changed anything in the script as we can see some errors in the script related to pagination.

  17. In this template, I have included blogger also in comment section,
    but only disqus is working, neither blogger nor facebook

    1. It is a magazine template and it has lots of widgets which rely on each other so you have to activate every single widget.

  18. thank You for your theme..............................
    I need your help
    how can i hide the date .
    i don't want show any date .

    1. You can hide the date in recent post widget from layout but for rest of the dates you have to buy premium version.

  19. Content Featured Widgets is not blog

    1. Follow this tutorial

  20. some new article are not seen in all label -

    1. If you publish the article into same label, then it will.

  21. I loved this template. Big thanks.
    But I have two problems :

    1) I can't show ads on the top and bottom of the posts.
    2) For the homepage widgets, when I ast to show articles of one label, the template show me title of another label. there is a problem

    1. 1.Those ad slots are for custom ads only, if you want to show adsense, then you have to do it directly through html.
      2.Can you explain bit more?

  22. I forgot to give the link of my website :

  23. I wanted to make some color and font changes through CSS, but it's very confusing to find and edit something here :(

  24. why the feature does not work when I set "allow blog feed" in a "short" ??

    1. Keeping it full it allows scripts to extract the data from posts.

  31. How to remove the recent tab showing after slider widget.

    1. It carries the default post section of your blog, its better you keep it intact.

  32. food widgets,sports,news and tech not showing.... it keeps loading

    1. Activate every single widget we have mentioned in documentation and then follow this.

  33. So, my blog has 5 authors. How can I adjust so the profile widget can work for all of us?

    1. It doesn't supports multi author function.

    2. Oh :/ And how can I take it off then? I tried but it stayed.

    3. Apply this css.

      .ty-author-box {
      display: none;

    4. Thanks. Oh, another thing. On the mobile, the photos gets weird, like, deformed, how can I fix it?

    5. Upload image with orginal size setting.

  34. When I installed the template on my site, I forgot to change the following code:

    Now, when I try to share a link on my site's Facebook page, the description always shows up as "YOUR DESCRIPTION HERE". I've already changed the code but I keeps happening with the older posts, although the new posts posted after I changed the code are normal.


    1. Use facbook's debugger tool and fetch the blog and post link again.
      Note:- it won't change the description of the posts whihc are already shared.
