    Is this theme WP 2.3 compatible? The theme is not rendering properly for me. I see the content with no design.

  1. 7. hso | October 23, 2007 #

    @ Chris

    I did not test it on version 2.3, as far as I can tell, since there are no sidebar elements built into this theme, there should not be any issues using it with the new version of WP (although there is one deprecates tag in the file, it still should work).

    Very nice theme - I want to use + tweak in my site.

    Are you going to support and upgrade your theme ? Or just made and forget :) ?

  1. 13. hso | October 25, 2007 #

    @ Ehab

    Over 2K support comments are testimonial of our service, so yes this theme will be supported too. As for upgrading the themes, we make new themes with new WordPress versions in mind, however, we also cater to our existing users who refuse to upgrade (like myself). So we try and limit potential upgrade issues by making the theme completely widget based using only the most recent non-deprecated template tags. So be worry free, our themes will not screw your blog up.

    Did you upload the theme via FTP after extracting the zip file? Can you check and confirm is the theme folder has both the style.css and index.php files?

    how to replace categories to the left while archives move to the right?

  1. 33. hso | November 8, 2007 #

    @ go_free

    This theme relies on widgets to add those sidebar elements, so just swap (drag and drop) the respective widgets in the left and right sidebar from WP Admin > Presentation > Sidebar Widgets and you are done.

  1. 35. David Potter | November 16, 2007 #

    I really like the look of this theme, but I’d really like it to be fluid. I’ve tried a few things, beginning with changing the div class referred to from “fixed” to “fluid” and then changing the body style in styles.css to something similar to another style that is fluid (FallSeason, my current theme). I can’t seem to get it to be fluid and look good. Can you help?

    Thanks,
    David

  1. 36. hso | November 16, 2007 #

    @ David Potter

    I actually stripped the styling for fluid divs but seem to have left out a line or two. With that said, it is completely possible to have a full function fluid design based on this stylesheet, but would require some legwork that including at least defining four sections (main page, content block and 2 sidebar columns) that will become fluid.

    A good starting point would be to define the widths of the page (currently 800px) and each of these columns in % as opposed to px, for example, the page will become 100% or 95% or whatever you choose.

    Also change the padding and margins for the page and the three columns into %. That should get you going, let me know if you run into any issues.

    Remember, the key to successfully defining fluid widths is in allowing sufficient room in your columns for padding.

  1. 37. David Potter | November 16, 2007 #

    Thanks so much. I’ll look at that. One of the problems I’m having is that the background image (bg.gif) doeesn’t repeat well. Any ideas there?

    @ David Potter

    When you say “doesn’t repeat well”, what happens?

  1. 47. San Diego Dream Weavers | June 4, 2008 #

    I’m curious. How is this Adsense Ready? How is everything configured on the back end to hook everything up? Also, is this theme compatible with the latest version of WordPress?

  1. 48. hso | June 4, 2008 #

    @ San Diego Dream Weavers

    Adsense ready means it is styled to allow easy integration of adsense ads. This theme is compatible with the latest version of WordPress.

  1. 49. Ajith Edassery | June 8, 2008 #

    Looks very good man :)

    Adsense ready is a marketing term and confusing to some. In fact, you can also mention that it supports majority of the ad sizes of all ad networks!

    Cheers,
    Ajith
