Notepad Chaos Blogger Template

This item was filled under [ Blogger Templates ]

After checking your suggestions i decided to convert Arthemia WordPress template but i thought that it would be very simple and would not look like original version , and then i decided to convert SmashingMagazine’s Notepad Chaos WordPress Template which looks very very stylish with its illustrated design.


It has really beautiful illustration which makes me convert it , its 2 column , it has a cool navigation menu and a custom search bar , at the bottom there is a place for you which gives you the chance of writing about yourself and its totally free!


I locked specific sections such as recent posts and categories you cannot edit these sections , you do not need to edit too. I created a section for you below the link list section where you can add any widget to there. Also i installed embed comment form of Blogger , if it does not work make sure you chose embed comment form from your blog settings. When you upload it to your blog , you will see times as undefined , to get rid of this problem you should follow the following steps : Setting >> Formatting >> TimeStamp Format and now chose the 4th one and save it. Another thing i have to tell you is that you cannot see recent posts on template while previewing , you have to save it to see recent posts.

Optimizing Navigation Menu

To change About and Archives URLs you must go to your template layout and  search for id=’menu-holder’ using CTRL+F combination from your browser , now you will see the codes which needs to be edited below the line i mentioned :

  • About
  • Archives
  • Translations

    Notepad Chaos Türkçe : Notepad Chaos’un Türkçe versiyonu Teknomobi tarafından uyarlanmıştır.İlgilenenler buraya tıklayarak Notepad Chaos Temasını Türkçe olarak indirebilir.


    I see that search form is not working to fix it go to your template codes find the lines below :


    and replace with this



    I’m planning to change my 6 years old PC ,  it takes longer for it to open Dreamweaver than my grandma pees. Please help me buy a part of my new pc even 1 dollar is enough ! Thanks!

      Hi- when I logged onto my blog today it showed a bunch of photobucket logos saying bandwith exceeded, upgrade to pro today. Will this be a permanent issue? Thanks!

      On the left of each post is a small graphic that says undefined, once on top in smaller letters and once on the bottom in larger letters. I am sure it is for the date but have tried changing the date settings and it doesn’t work. Can you give me some tips? It is so beautiful. Thank you for providing it.

      I figured it out. I did a search for the word undefined and found it under your help section. Thanks! I love it!

      hey! I was trying to do this, but you won me frst hand, anyhow, Evan Eckard had the .psd files downloadable, which it was a really good help since i wanted to tweak it a little with my own imagery. Would you help me telling me exactly what i need to do to get it up and running on blogger? you could send me a private message to my e-mail if you’d like that better. 

      Thank you in advance.

      please I need help: I downloaded and installed on an existing blog in your – Notepad Chaos Blogger Template – after having backedup the previous one.
      But, after installation I cant find the buttons to open a new post or to go to the – personalized – section of the blog … etc.
      Please help and tell me if I am doing any mistake or if this template is not suited for my blog and also how I can remove it, when needed .

      Thanks to let me know in the due course.

      following the previous post
      I’d like to add that also a big part of the template top side is missing after the upload for what I can see, so also many choise buttons are not available .

      Thanks again

      Hey, I really like this template and I’m using it for my blog currently. For some reason, I cannot figure out how to get the “About” “Archive” tabs to link where I would like… Any way someone could tell me please? I’ve read all the comments here and on the other help comment section for this template but I can’t seem to find it that works. Also, I’m not sure what to link the Archive tab to, because I haven’t found a way to use archives other than as a widget. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated because I’d love to keep this template up. Thank you!

      To someone who asked earlier, writing under the “What is this Place?” is fairly simple. When you are on Page Elements, add a text box with what you want to be there and then put it at the very bottom. The amount of text is limited, but it works :)
      Thanks again, hope someone can help!
