  1. Thanks for this amazing tutorial , but the addthis share button doesn't work underneath my post , it doesn't display ,only the sidebars share button that shows on desktop only , checkout on nueltech.com

  2. nicely composed and understandable. I want to own a blog like and more better than prexblog. I know you have shared an article on how to do it, but I'm still having issues with it. I can't be dropping them here otherwise it would be referred to as scamming, right? if only you reply to emails

  3. I ones used it when I was blogging.. Its very good… U can share ur post to anywhere using SHARE THIS

  4. Hello Prexblog official, please I am confused and need your help. I recently purchased a TLD(.com) domain. Immediately after purchase, it was working perfectly but the second day, I tried to view it but it's not going through, it is showing “This domain was purchased recently at Namecheap, check back later…..”

  5. Yes it is, I have discovered why. Once I change my template or edit it, it will happen but after about 30minutes,it will start working. But I am facing a new problem now which is how to automatically redirect my blogspot.com domain to my dotcom domain. If users visit my blogspot.com domain, it will tell them that it has been moved to dot.com domain and they should click Okay before they are redirected.

    But I want it to be redirected automatically without asking them
