Lemon Twist Blogger Template
Ah I don’t even have any word to describe how beautiful this template is. All i can say is just “PERFECT!”
A great salute and credit to Chris Murphy, the WordPress Theme Creator. He made it so well. Chris make this wordpress theme based on his own site. He is using this same wordpress theme too actually.
Another wordpress theme designer who release his own site design as a free to download wordpress theme is my friend DezinerFolio.com. They also share their site theme for free. And as you can see, the web 2.0 template is just so beautiful.
I would say that if you are looking for a free wordpress theme or blogger template, then try to find a designer who shares his/her own site template for free first.
Because they use the template on their own site, they will of course give their really best to make it better. They will optimize it as maximum as they can.
And for now, we have already 2 people here on jackbook.com

Some more new added features:
- Built in Swap Blogger Title Hack
- The images needed by this template are all hosted on ImagesHack.us
I host all the images onto my ImagesHack.Us so it should has a larger bandwith limit there. I still recommend you host all the images to your own googlepages, or ImagesHack or any other free images hosting out there but it’s optional anyway.
JackBook.Com has so many readers, and so many people using my templates. Thousands copies of my templates being downloaded every week. My googlepages account exceed the bandwith limit everyday, even now I use ImagesHack to host the images, but considering that JackBook.Com Templates have so many users there is still a possibility that my ImagesHack Account exceed the bandwith limit too. So it’s still recommended for you to host all the images to your own images hosting. But again, it’s optional. You can leave it as is if you want to.
- Featured Post on the Homepage Blog.
Not like the other templates, this template has a featured post section on the homepage. Your last post will be the featured one. so the featured post is automatic. you don’t have to set it manually.
- Beautiful Comment list, with a List of Commentator on a separate panel. Just take a look on the demo here and tell me that you don’t love it
- Using JQuery provided by Google.
OK I guess that’s all. I will add more update later if there is something to add.
You can download the template via the link below.
or download the wordpress theme here.
Now let me know how do you think about this template? Leave your feedback on the comment form below. thanks
It would be great if any of you knows how to get the flicker codes :), just tell me on the comment. thanks
new added: OK here is a tip from Amanda Fazani, a good friend from Blogger Buster
You’ll need to log in with a Yahoo account to access this, and may also need to tweak the code generated for your needs. I have used this in Blogger before now, and it’s really useful once you get the hang of using it.
Oops there are some points you have to do after installing this template that I forgot to mention on the post. Now I have update it, please read the instruction again.
This post is long enough to make me lost my train of thought
How to change the top image on the header? The FarFromFearless Image?
- Go to your template
- Find this line “http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/8227/logoom3.png“
- Change that image with your own 376x91px image
- It is recommended that you save that image and modify it with your own image editor.
Can’t Add New Page Elements / Widgets ?
Some readers said that they can’t add any new page elements, if only they mentioned what’s the error message too.
Make sure that you have at least 4 HTML Widgets. To fix this problem, I guess you just easily re-upload this new template.
I have met this problem once before, and I can fixed it by uploading the XML file twice. Hope it works. Thanks
How to add the Horizontal Menu on the Top Header?
OK, because there are already 2 or more friends who asked this question, here is the answer.
Actually I have mentioned about this on the post above.
After you download the template, you will see a text file named: Widget_Content.txt included in the zip file.
just open it, and you will see the content of that widget.
