    Amazing work guys. Infact this is THE theme I was looking for my blog. Minor changes and good output. Thanks a tonne and keep up the good work.

    Awesome job, y’all!

    I especially love that the blog title goes underneath the header image!

    Great theme! I have a question. How can I move the description blog until the right of the title’s blog, so that it is left in a line everything and to gain space?

    (I’m sorry for the automatic translation)

    it is great theme.
    But there is problem with smileys. When I check to convert smileys to images (icons) in Wordpress, then these icons are in comments a little shifted up. Is it possible to let them in line with text of comment? I think that there will be problem with css and img tag in comment section? Thank you very much…

  7. neoen on April 14th, 2007 2:39 pm

    I can make an example :-)
    There is smiley :-) and if you convert it into icon (image), then it will be shifted…

    I get the following error messages when I try to download this theme:

    FilZip: This is not a valid zip archive.

    Winzip: End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a Zip file, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part Zip file.

    Tried downloading from WordPress & from the designer’s site.

    Hi Cory

    Firstly I have to say many thanks for the terrific theme. I have it installed and I really like it.

    Just a couple of things - I notice that when my posts are indexed by a search engine there is no content (and consequently they posts appear to be duplicates), and I’m just wondering if you know why?

    I’ve looked at the code (and I’m not really good about these things), but could there be a rogue in the page.php? EG

    Also, the formatting in IE6 (the main post is half way down the page) - is there any way to fix?

    Sorry to bother you with these questions, but I’d appreciate any help.

  13. Meg on May 8th, 2007 6:27 pm

    Sorry my tags were removed that should be a rouge end div just after the div class=”postspace”

    Thanks for your theme! I’m using it for my Blog at right now. Unfortunately it’s not W3C compliant - but WTF… I made it a bit wider so I could use 468×60 pixel ad banners.

    Hello - great theme! I use it for my blog at One question - it looks fine in Safari and Firefox, but I notice that in Netscape there is a large space between the header and the most recent blog entry. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Hi, looks like a great theme and we are hoping to start using it soon. Would there be any problem using this theme with right to left languages like chinese or japanese?
