        Well done…

    4. John Uibel

      Really like your theme, and think it’s just right for my concept art/matte painting site ( Thanks!!

    5. manboo

      beautiful theme…

    6. Rolando

      I love the clean theme. I’d like to change the header picture, but when I upload a picture the next screen is blank.

      Can you please tell me how to fix this or work around it. Is there supposed to be a cropping page after a new image is uploaded?


      • WPGPL Team

        Maybe you pictures too big?

    7. Rolando

      Also how do you show the recent post with thumbnail? do i need the timthumb script?

      Is there supposed to be a Twitter and Flickr widget since there are those options in the control panel?

      • WPGPL Team

        The flickr and twitter widget not available this moment, but if you keep your right sidebar unchanged you can see latest post with thumb, flickr, recent comment with gravatar and latest twitter.

    8. Rolando

      I upload a different picture and the custom header now works. However, I still can not get the latest posts with thumbnails to show. Can you provide more details on how to enable that feature?

      I noticed that this theme does not have post thumbnails as an option when I create or edit any of my posts, i.e. it is not part of the theme template. Can this be added since it is supported with WordPress 2.9.1?

      • WPGPL Team

        Hi Rolando, Disable all of you widget and doesn’t it work?

        • Rolando

          Oh I see. I did not do that because there are widgets that I want to enable.

          • WPGPL Team

            If you want keep you current widget. Please modified sidebar.php with this code
