Some advices from bloggertemplates[dot]org

(0) I advise you to disable float alignment (under "Blogger Dashboard > Settings > Formatting > Enable float alignment > No") and not to use image positioning options while uploading images, otherwise layout problems may occur. Use class="left", class="right" or class="center" instead for positioning images with float alignment.

(1) AJAX library used for the top menu and smooth scrolling effect is compressed version of jQuery, and the interface elements created for jquery by Eyecon. Although these are very lightweight libraries available for creating effects like this templates has, these scripts can adversely effect your page loading times.

(2) Google Sitesearch is a free tool offered by Google, and its nothing to do with AdSense for Search. It can only produce results for the pages indexed by Google, and may not work if your blog haven’t got any.

(3) This template has been tested with Internet Explorer 6, Opera 9, Safari 1.3, Firefox 1.5.x (both Windows and Linux versions) and Konqueror 3.5. Although layout seems okay with all of these browsers, AJAX top menu of the template is not working with Konqueror and Safari. I suggest you to use Firefox for best performance. If you haven't downloaded yet, why don't you for safer and faster internet experience?
