WBWXTB [v. 1.5] - Advanced Blog Template for Xtgem Sites

Hello guys. It's been four years since I entered the world of Wapmaster and Blogging. And now here I am today to share you my first publication template, it is for Xtgem site and I am named it "WBWXTB".

As we know, Xtgem the free mobile site builder service has many interesting modules and one of them is Blog module or dubbed "xtblog". Xtblog has a template customization feature using TWIG templating.

WBWXTB is a template project to bringing and Advanced Xtgem blog template. There are custom features I have added to the Blog function like related posts, tags with post count, auto generated meta description and meta open graph (og), etc.

While WBWXTB has many features added to your xtblog, I decided to keep the Xtgem's original CSS classes so it will not conflict with Xtgem features such as navigation block and Xtgem's templates preset.

Because the URL (removing the "__xtblog_block_id" parameter) hack to generate automatic meta tags and for have a prettier URLs, we can only use one Blog function in one page. Adding more than one Blog function in one page at your Xtgem site will give unexpected results.

    1. First, try to fix your own generated error. For example, you have used a JQuery code but I didn't see you included any JQUery library in your sites...

      I found this (On line 830 of your homepage site source...):

      $(document).ready(function(){
      var checkForm, rctItem, rctWidth, rctPercent, fontSize;

      Delete

    1. If it's happen suddenly but not before, then maybe it's Xtgem's issue. Try to discuss it with other members on Xtgem forum...

      Delete
  6. I don't understand that where I should upload the file...

    Is there any video tutorial for it?

    1. No sorry. The UPLOAD folder is relative as your site root directory. You can imagine the whole content in the UPLOAD folder as the root of your site.

      Delete
  7. Why my site's Recent Posts and Random Posts widget is just loading and loading???

    How to fix it?
