Charisma is a wordpress theme designed by Cozmoslabs. Attracted to it's elegance and simplicity, I decided to convert this theme into Blogger. Previously, I've converted another theme by Cozmoslabs, { Early Morning }.

The home page has a beautiful slider, where you can display featured blog posts. Charisma theme comes with a unique feature where only post titles are shown in the home page of the blog. This feature for sure will help to increase your blog's page views and average time on your site.

As mentioned by original author of the theme, Cristian Antohe, it is a well structure theme which highlights the content and gives the user a pleasurable reading experience.

Here are instructions on customizing/editing the Charisma blogger template.

1. Navigation menu

<div id='nav'>
<div class='wrap'>
<ul class='nav' style='margin-left:130px;'>

Rethnaraj Rambabu said...


To change the width of post body and sidebar, go to Design > Edit HTML. In CSS, change the default width property of following id selectors to the shown values.....

#inner {

#content {

.main .Blog {

#sidebar-wrapper {

#header {

and click save. Done.

Thanks for beautiful template. I like that. I'd like to custormize it a little bit, so can I ask you a question?

I'd like to change the top page of the blog. Below the featured content slider, there are 4 or 5 titles of recent posts. Can I change that like an other usual blogs? Such as, title of the post, date, body, another title of the post, date, body, title, date, body, like that.

Sorry for my poor English and your help would be much appreciated.

Rethnaraj Rambabu said...

MIC, thanks for your interest to use my template and your english is really good. Follow these steps to get the blog look that you wish.

1. Go to Blogger > Design > Edit HTML and click "Expand Widget Templates".

2. Search for this code.

<div class='post-outer'>

3. You will see these bunch of codes below that code.

<b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
<h2 class='entry-title'><a expr:href='data:post.url'><data:post.title/></a></h2>
<b:include data='post' name='post'/>

4. Remove every other codes from that bunch of codes leaving only the code shown below.

<b:include data='post' name='post'/>

5. So, now the whole code will look like this

<div class='post-outer'>
<b:include data='post' name='post'/>

6. Save the template and done

Hello , I would like to ask if what is the code of that accordion like....part there , i wanna apply it to my template thanks

Anonymous said...

can i increase the number of posts being shown on the HOME page down there as a list?

JamieRecipes said...

hi. i absolutley love this template but i'm hoping for a few custimzations not mentioned.

iam using this theme now and i would like for the post titles on the top left (above the actual posts) to be at the bottom of the page after the last post instead of before the actual posts. i'm afraid after i made 20 posts that the whole first page will be gray bars linking to my posts...

i also wanted to move the nav gallery (i don't know what its really called but the thingie with HELLO WORLD) to the bottom possibly in the footer... how do i do that?

this is the best theme i have found so far! loving it!

I'm learning Chinese language because I believe it's the only way to really learn about China.When I was searching for a place to learn to speak Chinese, I called several schools. Hanbridge was the best because they had excellent teachers and a very friendly and welcoming spirit. ?I really appreciate the opportunity to learn here and would recommend Hanbridge to others.

The best place to learn mandarin Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to study Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin Chinese online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
