Ultime Notizie Template

Ultime Notizie TemplateI enjoyed making Ultime Notizie, my latest Blogger template design, and I am very happy with how it turned out.

I added some special features to this template, including not one but two optional and customizable linkbars, one of which featuring a no-flicker all CSS image rollover. And also the super fancy blockquotes with a drop cap.

As usual, the fonts and colors of the template may be customized using the Blogger Dashboard's "Template Designer," within the "Advanced," subcategory should you like to add a little pink to the template, or any other color for that matter!

Ultime Notizie Template


  • 2 column fixed width layout, the second column allowing optional narrow-third column, all sections "widgetized" or "gadget-ready"
  • 3 column footer, also "widgetized"
  • 2 Optional and customizable linkbars. Super easy to use and customize, details below.
  • Supports Blogger Dashboard editing tools, easily change fonts and colors in practically all areas of the template via the "Template Designer," within the "Advanced" subcategory.
  • Images included, you do not need to upload the images to your own server, they are stored in my photobucket.com account which allows generous direct linking bandwidth. However, users who have access to an image host are advised to download the images and upload them to their own server, as the bandwidth could potentially be exceeded in the future. Download the images from here.
  • Title setup optimized and corrected for better SEO.
  • Embedded comment form below post
  • Wireframe set up for easy adding and removing gadgets
  • Functional search box included


  • Templates are free to use in Blogger blogs, however, the link back to http://www.nymFont.com (usually located in the bottom footer) must not be removed.
  • Do not redistribute this template for paid download.
  • Do not add your own links to the template code and redistribute.
  • Modifications to the template are allowed either through the Blogger Dashboard or directly in the code, however, the link back to Nymphont/NymFont (http://www.nymFont.com) still must remain intact and again, not be removed, thank you. 
  • Do not add your own links to the template code and re-distribute.

  • If you are going to redistribute the template, you are not permitted to add your own links to the template.
  • In addition, it is asked that you do not link directly to my files for the download, nor upload them to your own servers for download. Instead you must link back to my own page for the template, or simply to the index of this website, http://www.nymfont.com
  • The terms and license for the template(s) must be stated and given whenever redistributing

This is non-negotiable. If you want to share or redistribute my templates, this is how it must be done. If you don't want to abide these terms, then you don't want to share or redistribute my templates.

Customizing Linkbars

Feed Links The top linkbar is labled "Linkbar2" and can be easily customized to include your own links via the "Page Elements" subcategory of the Design tab within the Blogger Dashboard.

Feed Links The main linkbar (labled simply 'Linkbar') featuring the no-flick all CSS image rollover can be modified the same way. If you do not want to use either linkbar, simply leave the widget empty.

Using Fancy Blockquotes

Fancy Blockquotes
The blockquotes have been styled to include a drop-cap for the first letter as well as small capitals for the first line. To use this fancy blockquote style, simply add a
at the beggining of your blockquote, at the end place

So the completed HTML for a blockquote would look like this:



Your blockquote content here



Blockquotes will display normally without this, it is not required, just an option.

Additional Details

If you do have access to your own image host, you might want to host the images at your own server. To do so download the images here and replace image URL's in the code with the corresponding URL's at your server.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this template, the more feedback I receive the better my templates can be! Thanks so much :) If you need any assistance with this template, feel free to leave a comment below. I hope you like it!
