Showcase Light - Free Premium Gallery Style Blogger Template



Due to the success of Showcase, I got many great feedback on that type of template. I know that you guys like this kind of design, and some people like lighter colors than darker colors. That's why I made Showcase Light, as nice as Showcase, but light!


Features:
  • Gallery Style
  • Well designed graphics
  • White / Light Gray / Blue
  • Custom comments, Blockquotes and Lists
  • Automatic Thumbnail
  • Clickable Thumbnails


Fix for the JavaScript File

Note: I have uploaded the javascript files for the thumbnails on a new server/
Just go to your Dashboard > Edit HTML. Click Expand Widget Templates, replace this line:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1693834/javascript/summary-post.js

For this one:

http://bloggertuts.googlecode.com/files/summary-post.js

After doing that, look for this line:
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb(&quot;summary<data:post.id/>&quot;);</script>
And replace it for this one:
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb(&quot;summary<data:post.id/>&quot;,&quot;<data:post.url/>&quot;,&quot;<data:post.title/>&quot;);</script>

Save it and enjoy!

Hola Dante
TE cuento que las plantillas Showcase no funcionan bien, hoy día, en Blogger.

Algún consejo para corregir esto!

Estaría agradecido por tu aporte!!!!!!!!!!

do not see the menus on the side of the blog just below.

The Live demo is working fine and the sidebar is just in the right place, Try to reinstall the original template.

Ben

Hi, I got problem with the background behind pictures on each post. It uses http://www.predictad.com/images/skins/mclassic/seperator.gif

Thanks for the generous help.

Dante Araújo

Hi, Did you add that background yourself? I am not sure what the problem is, please enlight me! :)

Albert

Hello Dante :D

I really love this template of yours. I have spent the whole day doing a new heading for my blog and so on, but I have got a problem.

When I signed out and I went to see how my new blog looked like, I could not open/load up the little square. By square I mean the places where you see the name of one of the posts and its picture. When I click in the title, nothing happens. I cannot open a new window to read my posts.

I have done what you advice in "how to fix problems with the thumbnails", but I am afraid that it does not work. Maybe I do something wrong because I am very new at creating a blog.

Anyway, I would be very thankfull if you could give me some thoughts about what the problem can be.

Thanks a lot!

Dante! me encanta tu plantilla, pero tengo un problema.

Una vez la guardo y cierro sesión, la página principal de mi blog sale bien, pero si quiero pinchar y acceder a las diferentes entradas, es imposible hacerlo. La página se refresca y sigue en la página principal.

Es normal? qué hago mal?

Dante Araújo

@Albert, I would recommend you to go to your blog settings on your dashboard and check if you have enabled the "Post Pages" option.

Albert

Hey Dante!

Thanks thanks thanks a lot. That was the problem. I had not enabled that option.

I am going to post a new entry and to recommend your templates and advices!

Good work and I will keep on visiting your website to improve mine. You make a dead loss at computers like me be interested and thrilled about blogging and so on.

Congrats!

Hey there, love this template!

Where in the HTML would I put the following code?

script src='http://tweetmeme.com/i/scripts/button.js' type='text/javascript'/

Thanks!

Dave

Hey, I'd also like to know how to use the Tweet Meme thing above.

Is there any way to get more preview thumbnails on the main page?

Cheers!!

Dante Araújo

@Anonymous, Insert the code whereer you wan to show the tweetmeme button!

@Dave, Go to tweetmeme website and get detailed instrucitions there, it's perfect. To show more thumbnails just go to your blogger setting on your dashboard and set how many posts you want to be shown on the main page.

James

Hi there! I found your site from Google and am really taken back by your themes, I love them!

I was wondering if it would be possible for me to change the size of the thumbnails created, to something a bit less wide? I am not sure what would happen to the title text and if it would extend over the picture though.

Thanks very much!

Dan

Sup Dante. Y'know how your script takes the first image from each post and makes a thumbnail, it seems to also take other scripts to the home page. I post a javascript code in each one of my posts so that you can't scroll down, i do it on each post so that it doesn't affect the home page, however it IS affecting the homepage somehow. Do you know how and why?

Thanks! :):)

Dante Araújo

@James, Yes it's possible, feel free to edit the css code of this template to fit your needs and make your bloggin experience much better!

@Dan, I am sorry but I am not so savyy with javascript :/ I just place them on my templates to make use of its wonderful features... But I don't understand them very much.

Anonymous

Hi again, I was just wondering if you could quickly recommend the best ways to speed up the blog using this template. It seems to take a while for the images to be resized for the thumbnails, so is there anything I can do to make this quicker?

I am just sorting out the little bugs before everything is perfect, which I am sure it will be as this template is amazing! thank you :)

Dante Araújo

I think the only thing that makes this template a little slow is the external javascript used to create the thumbnails automatically, Try to host it on a personal or faster hosting service!

Aramak

Dante, this template rocks, very good work. The best templete in this style.

Dante, pelo seu nome penso que entenda português, abraços do Brasil!

Dante Araújo

@Aramark valeu cara! Abraços

Aramak

Dante, I'm using this template and I want to put a background image in the titles of the widgets at the sidebar. This background image will be usefull to organize my sidebar in sections. can you help me to do that?

Dante, perdoe o Inglês mas o que quero é por uma pequena imagem como fundo para os títulos dos widgets na sidebar. Gostaria que sempre que adicionasse um widget, seu titulo viesse com essa imagem de fundo automaticamente como vemos em muitos templates. Pode ser um background com uma imagem ou cor diferenciada para deixar bem separado. Como por exemplo na temnplate Viluxus. Pode me ajudar por favor? Obrigado

Dante Araújo

@Aramak, basta criar a imagem... e para adiciona-la ao seus titulos de widgets, edita a segunite classe no css:

.sidebar h2 {
}

Aramak

Dante obrigado, achei a classe CSS aqui e editei, só que a imagem não está preenchendo toda a extensão da sidebar, ela fica meio que centralizada, deixando pequenos espaços em branco na esquerda e na direita. O mesmo acontece quando coloco uma alguma cor como background dos titulos. Alguma sugestão? Obrigado pela força!

Dante Araújo

Me passa o link do seu blog para eu dar uma olhadinha no codigo dele e te ajduar a resolver.

Aramak

Ok Dante,

http://templates4ever.blogspot.com

Dante Araújo

Preciso que adicione o código no css que havia adicionado antes, preciso ver o problema com os meus proprios olhos ;)

Aramak

Dante, codigo adicionado. Pode ver o problema agora. Adicionei uma cor como fundo dos titulos. Vej lá adicionei a tag background lá no sidebar h2.

Dante Araújo

saquei o problema, vai ser chatinho de resolver pois o Showcase Light utiliza um ícone específico para cada tipo de widget, e cada um eu editei no css individualmente.

Você tera que procurar por todos eles no código, exemplo: ".BlogArchive h2" entende ? Esse por exemplo edita o h2 somente do widget arquivo, etc.

Abraço e boa sorte

Aramak

Ok Dante, entendi como é. Vou tentar aqui. Valeu mesmo a força.

Aramak

Dante, epero não estar te incomodando muuuuuito mas se puder me esclarecer outra coisa: Como faço para colocar este divisores de sidebar como tem aqui no seu blog? É o que aparece como sidebardivisor no Html. Se puder ajudar muito obrigado!

Aramak

Dante, tomei a liberdade de analisar o seu Html e já descobri como adicionr o divisor. Agora é só criar um meu e adicionar. Obrigado pela força!

}

Pronto :)

hello, and thank you for this wonderful template. i have a 'problem' - i understand that your template will resize the thumbnail on the blog homepage, that is fine. however, if i insert a code for pictures into a blog post and they are too wide, something in your template stretches the picture(s). is there any way around that? thank you!!

Luis

no trabaja con internet explorer al igual que dreamy :(

Are you using the last version of this template? With updated JavaScript?

I guess I will have to find a solution for this...

Olá Dante, adoro este teu template e estou a usa-lo no meu novo blog (http://marta-rog.blogspot.com/). O problema é que tento criar um link na imagem, quando clico para abrir essa mesma imagem na página inicial, ela abre-me para o link e não me abre o post. Não sei se alguém já te tinha avisado deste problema. Existe maneira de ultrapassar isso? Obrigada.

Hello Dante. I want to thank you for sharing such excellent templates with everyone.

I am currently customizing this showcase template for my Blogger profile and I am curious if you could provide an answer or a fix for me...

I would like to limit the amount of the post title that shows on the front page of my blog. Some of my post titles are very long and they cover a lot of the image, so I would like to have the post title cut off after a certain number of characters and end with a "...".

Do you know how I could work that into this template? Thank you for any help.

Sometimes the appear at the bottom of the main page and sometimes (or when i click on them) the appear roght on top of the pictures.

Please help me, i've tried everything and i can't solve the issue.

Can anyone please help? I would be most grateful!

Hello Dante, I love this template! The only thing is, if I click on an image on the homepage, it opens a larger version of the image instead of going to the post page. If I click on the title of the post that's on the image, it works fine and takes me to the post. I see that your demo version has the desired behavior, but it is not working for me even though I downloaded the latest file and made sure your changes were included.

Thanks in advance!

Excuse Me Mr.Dante... Your template were awesome. I've set it up and it works like a charm. Thanks 4 your kind contribution for us who knows nothing about creating those kind of template.

If you had any time to answer my 2 questions...

1. If i add an extra gadget above the Subscribe gadget, the colour is not same as the one in Last Work gadget, what can we do to make the same effect if we add an extra gadget above Subscription gadget and under Favorites Gadget.

2. I edit the horizontal menu with my own pages that i created using blogger pager feature, but it displayed just like the Homepage, what needs to be done to make those pages just like an ordinary page.

Thanks 4 your time answering my question, and to other users of this template, i bet your also going to need Mr.dante's answers about my questions.

Best regards.

Sorry for another Question Mr.Dante

How to re-enabled the sharing features on post, cause i cant see any sharing options eventhough i did activate those features in the design-page element- post properties.

I have videos on my blog and when I tried this theme on my test blog it appears that if a post contains a video from utube for example the link to it cannot be reached.
