Dig this template! Looks good, clean, and I’d assume it’s pretty easy to tweak as well!

Anyway… good work! Thanks for sharing.

As Izzat aziz commented , if the blog title is too long it gets covered up by the blog entry on the right…..

How do we fix the font size of the Title page for this theme?

Problem with Blogtitel too.

LOVE this theme more than any other free theme EVER! Using it, thank you VERY much!

For all you having trouble with the Header size, edit LINE 106. It’s hard to find, but I found it!


September 3rd, 2010

Thank you! This theme saved my life right now–just installed and about to customize. :)


September 30th, 2010

little room in the header section. This can be a problem if your blog has a long blog name/title and if you have many pages to display.Thanks!


October 8th, 2010

this is an over all nice theme, will be even more good if you change this reddish color to some light color.


January 20th, 2011

Really nice theme, thanks. Like how it’s clean, yet simple.


February 28th, 2011

I have a question…how do I hide the subpages? I have about a million of them and it looks awful with them all presented right there on the left. How can I get *only* parent pages to show? Thanks for the beautiful theme — hope I can fix this page problem so I can actually use it! :)


March 3rd, 2011

Very very nice theme!


July 11th, 2011

I would like to remove the Digg, Tweet, and Facebook Share buttons from the left of my posts. How do I do this? Thanks! I had not yet been able to get through on the support email, so I thought I would try here.


July 11th, 2011

And once again I figured it out seconds after posting this. I am so embarrassed. From now on I will fake like I am going to submit a question and then just go look for the answer some more. Delete again. My Bad!

Here’s what you do to change the header size on the Zexee theme.

#1 Find the style.css file

#2 Look for the line that says:
#header h1 a {
color: #000000;
display: block;
font-family: myriad pro,calibri,arial;
font-size: 80px;
font-style: normal;
text-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #B75B62;
text-transform: uppercase;
top: 10px;
width: 300px;

#3 Change the font size from 80px to whatever you need it to be. Keep trying different numbers until you find the one that works for you.

Unfortunately this great theme – that I run on my blog – doesn’t come with any documentation. Thankfully I managed to find this out by asking the Live Technical Support at Hostgator for help and they managed to point me in the right direction.

Hope this helps.
