  1. Hello
    How can replace the old black-lettehead theme in my blog

    • ulyssesr says:

      You can’t replace it since your blog is hosted at If your blog is self-hosted or with a hosting company, then you have a lot more freedom to edit or use any theme you like.

    yo ulyssesr can you maybe add the theme tool kit to this 1 too ? or can you maybe tell me how to add it myself please

  3. Ramon says:

    which files are changed ?
    can i upload just these changed files or do I need to upload all the files and make all the changes i made again?

    • ulyssesr says:


      The changes were made in sidebar.php and style.css. Check if the your blog displays incorrectly the footer section in IE browser. If not, then you may be unaffected by this update.

  4. Ramon says:

    Uly, I checked my blog in Firefox, Internet Explorer 7 and 6 and it looks the same in each browser, just like on your blog.
    I think I skip this update, and perform a upgrade as soon as 1.7 is released.

    New to wordpress, I used your black letterhead template 2 days ago- looked great. Went to site this morning- gone. Have you had other people have this problem with WordPress? I see that you’ve had several updates to your css, so I figure the bug more than likely isn’t in your scripting…?

    • ulyssesr says:


      The Blackletterhead theme being used by is based on the older Blackletterhead 1.3 theme. is the keeper of the Blackletterhead theme at their site. I just checked your site. It’s still there. It must have been a glitch at

  11. Very nice Theme!

    I really like the improvements to the theme. I was rocking 1.0 for too long, 1.6 is quite nice! Thanks for your efforts and talents.

    Hi ulyssersr,

    I just found your theme and downloaded it. I’ll be using it on the next blog that I build. Thanks for designing it and allowing us to use it.

  14. nice theme, I prefer this 1.6 than the 1.0, but still both of them pretty nice. Thanks.

    Love the theme!

    I have yet to update a theme before now (newbie), and I have a question.

    I have been using ver. 1.5. When I upgrade to 1.6 do I need to redo all of the changes I have made to the theme. Or, do I just just disable plug-ins, download the new theme and put the older theme files back in the theme folder?

    When I started with ver. 1.5 I took out the comments; which I am now regretting. That is why I want to update to ver. 1.6

    Thank you and take care.

    • ulyssesr says:


      If you upgrade to 1.6, your previous changes will be lost. If you made just a few changes, then you can just re-apply those changes to version 1.6.

    I can’t for the life of me figure out how to move categories & tags to the bottom of my blog posts. Is there a way to do this? I have it that way on my other blog with wordpress.

    • ulyssesr says:

      Hi Juli,

      If your blog is at, you can’t make code changes to the theme, but if you’re self hosted somewhere, you can edit the theme files and place tag and categories anywhere on your blog post. That’s the advantage of self hosting as oppose to running a blog at You have a bit more flexibility.

  17. Nathan says:

    Could you tell me how to modify the header in v 1.6 so that it is solid black (like in v 1.5) rather than the red/black gradient.

    And thanks for your great design!!

    • ulyssesr says:

      Hi Nathan,

      Just remove the header image under the `images` folder. That should remove the sample header image being displayed in the header section. πŸ™‚

    I was wondering if this 1.6.1 version is compatible with the soon to be released WordPress 2.8 version.
    Or will you release a new theme version?

    Kind regards

  21. John says:

    I really like the theme, but I think it has too much space between the letters in the titles (both the main title and the subtitle). How do I change that? In the CSS file somewhere?

  22. Jill says:

    Hi THere – I’m working on my new blog (not public yet) and using your theme. I have the CSS Upgrade. Is there anyway to make it THREE columns? Please help. Thanx

    • ulyssesr says:

      Jill, it is possible, but you have to make CSS changes as well as edit theme files for adding a second sidebar div. This is something will not allow you.

    I am in Singapore now, for a while… and I often check my blog using my phone. I noticed its extremely slow to load this template.
    I found some mobile friendly template that is used when someone visits my site on his phone.

    Is it possible for you to create on? I know it’s kinda easy for me to ask… but it would be awesome if this theme is mobile friendly and only 1 theme needs to be used.

    Kind regards!
