      He there,

      The Popularity Contest plugin does not work with wordpress 2.7. Could you please check that?

        Hi Frank, what you mean doesn’t work? You need install the plugin to make it work. And if this plugin doesn’t work. The problem not in my Themes, but the plugins

      It’s true, the Popularity Contest plugin doesn’t work with 2.7 – when you try to activate it, it gives a Fatal Error and won’t activate.

      Not the theme’s problem. Something to mention to the plugin developer.

      How would I place a custom header image into this theme while still keeping the repeating background image in tact? I guess my goal would be to place a header image (standard banner size) over the repeating background.

      Thanks for the help.

      Oh, one more thing. I see this theme is ad ready, but I can’t seem to find where I would add this in WP administration. I found the 125 ad images, but that’s about it.

      Thanks again,

        Edit sidebar.php and un comment the 125 ads area

    9. selym

      Thank you for reply. Sorry, I’m not a programmer, but when you say uncomment the 125 ads area, if you mean to delete something like this (//) before a line, I don’t see anything that is commented in sidebar.php.

      Please HELP! Something is happening on my site – I have NO IDEA how to fix it. My last two blogs are in a ‘box’, like a Word doc with the scroll bar on the right and bottom. I don’t know what happened. When I post it, and view my site, the scroll bars are still there. Also, a green background – again, no idea why that’s there. Has this every happened to anyone? Any suggestions on what I should do? I am a complete newbie with this stuff. Thanks!!

      Hi – I really like this theme, but I’m having problems with comments. When I comment on a blogpost, the comment is not placed under this post, but an old one. This happened with version 1.5.3, but when I upgraded to 1.6.3, it worked. But now I’ve just found out that it’s not working again.

      If I change to the default theme, comments work, but not with this theme.

      Did anybody else have this problem and have solved it?

      • WPGPL Team

        Hi Britt
        I didn’t understand what you mean, can you make it more clearly?

    15. Britt Malka

      Many hours later… Found the problem (when somebody wrote a comment to post #234 it ended up as a comment to post #15) and solved it. The error was NOT in this theme, but in a code from a plugin that I used on this theme. Sorry for the disturbance.

      How can i add “more” to the theme to allow me to get more content on first page of site?
