  1. I have a question about editing the theme:
    How do you change the headers text? And is it possible to add a header image in there instead of just having a big empty space with a little text?

    1. If you host your own blog, you can use the WordPress editor to edit style.css. Save after you made your changes. If you are hosted at WordPress.com, you have to pay $15 to edit CSS.

  2. Hi! Thanks for the lovely theme.

    I am wondering why my archives are not showing up? ANy suggestions? The forums do not address this.

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Jody,

      Ah, you need to create an archive template. That’s probably the best way of adding an Archive Page. Please refer to the Archive documentation in the WordPress Codex. They give a few examples of creating a Template and give you a few examples of what code to put in the Template. Good luck.

  3. I have a discussion forum on my web site on one of the pages. So far, I can put the forum on the default template or the full-page template, but neither one looks right. Can you tell me how I can create a page template that has neither a default or fullpage width, but a width of about 650px? Thanks!

    1. You going to have to create a new page template with a unique div. For example something called “newdiv.” You can call it whatever you like. You then add a new entry in CSS for “newdiv” with a width of 650px.

  4. I created my first post on the main page, but there is about an inch of blank space between the navigation bar and the text of the first post. Can I remove the white space and have the text begin after the nav bar?

  5. Hi Dan,

    I noticed there is a break statement between the nav bar and your first text. There is also a small statement you can probably remove as well. In addition, you can take out the padding for both narrowcolumn and widecolumn, just to be consistent.

  6. Okay Ulysses. Will this tag removal completely remove all my tags?. I want to hid tags so I can use it to optimize the likelihood of being found in search engines (that is use them for SEO.

  7. I have used your theme for a good while now, slightly modified, it works real well, thank you.

    I want to add another page and have no room for the tab to fit and anyway most websites are wider that this theme allows.

    In the css there are about 10 px widths. I can make the page width wider but the left margin gets bigger too (see my website) link. I could start a process of elimination to see which width effect the margin, but I am wondering is there aw way I can tell somewhere in the code?

    1. Hi Board, I think you’ll need to expand the narrowcolumn or widecolumn widths when you increase the page size. In this case, you won’t have a lot of white space in the margins. Just edit style.css and look for narrowcolumn and widecolumn widths.
