  1. I am having a problem keeping successive posts in line, if you check out my site ( you will notice that the second post down is creeping up under my text from the top post. What can I do?

  2. Chris, I see now … try taking off the “more” tag to make the post longer …. for those really short posts I can’t think of a better fix … it’s either making the image smaller or lengthening the post.

  3. Thanks Cory! I thought that may be the only solution but I figured I should ask:-)
    Thanks for the sweet theme!

  4. Cory,

    thanks for this wonderful theme. I decided to use it on one of my websites because it’s simply the best 🙂

    I am trying to show a page list in the sidebar of your theme, but

    only shows the top level pages. Any idea what I’m missing?



  5. Bernhard, you have an early version of the theme … try downloading the new one above where I replaced that and added “recent posts” instead of the pages.

    Glad you like the theme!!!


  6. Cory,

    thanks for your quick reply. I think the version I installed is the most recent one, it has the “recent posts” in the sidebar. I wanted to add the pages list myself in the sidebar.php, but it refuses to show sub pages / only shows top level pages when I use

    php get_links_list();


    P.S. let me know if this discussion is too detailled/technical for this common place, I would obey that.

  7. Hi Cory,

    Love the theme.

    Noticed some weirdness in IE6 when you click through to the categories – all the content is in really large fonts and page is distorted … a styling issue. Any idea how I can fix?


  8. Sandra,

    I also had this problem in Vista/IE7. I altered this line on the archives page:

    …and removed the tag, so it reads like this:

    Now it works fine in IE7. The only weirdness now is that the page shifts just a little in Firefox when clicking the Archive link from the main page.

  9. @Gordon:

    Hi Gordon–I’m also having the same problem. The code alterations you mentioned aren’t shown in your comment…could you re-reply with them? I’d love to solve this, but am not a CSS guru by any stretch…

  10. Eric, Gordon said this to me in an email: “All I did was to remove the < h2 > tag from the archive page template – I think it’s like the 3rd or 4th line of code?”

    Hope this helps .. I’ll look at this tonight.

  11. This is a very nice theme and I want to use it. I am puzzled though about why it indents after images? Like if I use a several smilies like this it will indent each one. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  12. I like your theme very much but I have two questions. I’ve installed your 3-column version and in trying to add sidebar plugins with widgets, the plugin shows up on both the left and right sidebars. I can’t figure out how to differentiate between the two sidebars to add content.

    Secondly, is there a way to not have posts abbreviated on the archive page, if that’s the correct term.

    Thank you very much. It’s a very good looking theme.


  13. Sid, I’ve got to fix the sidebars …. this is a problem the forums have told me about and I’m working on. I’ll let you know. Thanks!


  14. How would I/you enable css drop down menu on this great theme??


  15. Thank you for the response concerning the sidebars. I appreciate it.


  16. Hi Cory,

    Let me know when you get the sidebar column error fixed. I want to try this theme out.


  17. Hi Cory:

    Like Reinar, I’d like to understand how to add to the drop down menu.

    Terrific design!



  18. Here’s what I offered Saman:

    #content p img{
    float: left;
    border: none;
    margin-right: 15px;
    margin-bottom: 10px;

  19. My new personal site for fun I am powering with word press ( It is still being put together right now, but I would like to say that this theme is great. I added some changes of my own to the files and then the CSS and got exactly what I would want for this site.
    Thanks Cory

  20. that’s odd that the universal fix didn’t work. interesting.

    But, that code works too. denies the border unless specified by another class/id/attribute.

    Glad it’s fixed!
