Tweak Your Aspire – Show your blog’s Description  

Posted by Jaideep Walia in , , ,

This blog post is inspired by a problem faced by one of my reader. He has a blog about Philately and has text scrolling at the end of the page. What he wanted to do is to have that text scrolling at the top. The shortest and easiest possible answer to his problem was to have his message as blog’s description. But somehow Aspire does not show Description.

Yipeeeee, another addition to my (gradually) increasing number of posts.

Before doing anything with your template Please Backup Your Template.

As I have already told you… Aspire does not show your post’s Description. So first we will tackle this problem.

First search for

<h1><a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl'><data:title/></a></h1>

Just below it add


So the final code should look something like

<b:includable id='main'>
<h1><a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl'><data:title/></a></h1>

Just one more tweak and you will see the description of your blog.

Find the code

#head {position:relative; width:990px; height:250px;


.header {width:627px; height:250px; background: url( no-repeat;}

and replace height:250px to height:265px.

That’s it… Job done. Save your template and See the description of your blog.

Now Something specifically for Mr. Prashant Pandya.

To add scrolling text, in this case Description of your blog, just change the code from




Save the template and see your message or blog’s description scroll.
