      Manogr – hi! To answer your question, I’ve no idea! I just added widgets to the right side bar and they worked as I expected them to. Wish I could help more but there’s no issue for me. I only downloaded the theme recently so maybe there’s been a fix or something?

      I’ve still been unable to replace the ‘you.jpg’ graphic top right. Has anyone worked this out? It’s driving me nuts :-)

      I found this theme yestarday and really like it. I have been trying to change some information to make it match the loof of my website, but it is more complicated than other themes I have worked with.
      Can anyone for example tell me how to change the header image in order to have one long 950px image instead of the 600px image with the right grey square?
      By the way…amazing the way Scott changer the theme!!!!

        Thanks Joia for commenting on the changes we made on the theme. Having no experience with website design or blogging or anything like it before starting, we’ve come a long way. I think my code is still a little bit ‘messy’, but it’s getting the job done. We’ve finalised the design I think, now it’s time to post! One of our biggest challenges was getting the ‘About’ page to stick to the right and keep the others to the left. We think the layout is better for it.

      Hey Ian.
      Go to the Image file inside the theme and substitute the “you.jpg” file for the one you prefer.

    4. Joia

      Me again. I have already changed the image, thanks. If anyone is interested, it is changed in the style and functions.

      These themes are top quality. I’m using Prosumer on Clickmaxim and testing others on more sites I own. I love the theme design of this site that host all your designs. Great job on the Header. Very understated but BOLD.

      Someone asked above why About disappears when you add something to the sidebar…

      The answer is in the sidebar.php file:

      Basically, it says that it should only show the default “widgets” (About, Links, Search) if and only if you haven’t used WP to throw a widget in there yourself. If you add a single widget, everything else goes away.

      Your best bet, if you want to add a non-default widget to that side, would be to add additional widgets that mimic the built-in pieces. Add a text widget for About, etc.

      And as with a lot of others here, I’m digging this theme. Have made some slight tweaks (like swapping the left sidebar and main content area), but all in all this was a great start for my current project. Thanks for it.

      Great great them. I’m loving it. Is there any way to change the order in which the comments appear? i.e., to make the most recent comments appear at the top?

      For people using this theme that see the sidebar titles disappear here is the fix:

      I see that someone already asked this question, so I aplogize for asking again… But the answer did not help me!

      I have been unable to change the “about” text under the picture on my homepage. I must not be looking in the right place in my profile, I do not see where I can edit the text. I was able to edit the text on the about page, but nothing changed on the homepage “about” text. I tried using a text widget, but that only erased the right sidebar.

      I’m a rookie when it comes to wordpress so I’m sure I’m missing something simple, but I appreciate your help.

        Hi, Ward.

        If I remember correctly, you can change that text by adding something in the About Yourself info in the profile for your admin account.

        Click Users and select the admin user. Scroll down to the bottom and you should see a spot titled “Biographical Info”. I removed that part on my blog myself and just have a text widget in its place, so I can’t really confirm. I’m about 90% sure that’s it, though.

      don’t like the font, can it be changes?

      is it possible to change the background color to white?

      sorry, i am a newbie.

      Thanks and best regards,

      How do i change the text when i hover over the about image on the sidebar? It says Your Avatar, i would like to delete this as when i search google it come up with Your Avatar then my desciption.

    15. Ian

      dont matter now i found it under functions.

      I have another question though, how to i get rid of the right sidebar? when i delete the code from sidebar.php it will still only show my content at 510px wide and if i alter the #content to 710px in the style.css it put the content to the left and the left sidebar underneath.

      Great theme. I was able to change the ‘about me ‘ image but I also want to change the ALT text of this image AND make it link to an external site.

      HOw do I do that? I also changed my user profile but the text below the avitar doesn’t change. Besides, would rather not have text there OR have user-independent text. I created a text widget but it didn’t show up.

      Hi everyone.

      I have just downloaded this theme and I have added my categories but it seems to be only displaying one categories when i have many. Can anyone tell me why this is

    19. Continued sidebar issues

      Great them but the sidebar.php is driving me crazy. I was able to replace the ‘you’ image, change the banner ‘about’ and the text below the ‘you’ image. I even created a link from the ‘you’ image but since yesterday, the link and banner changes are gone.

      So I downloaded the sidebar.php file from my website to edit and there’s not even a reference to the ‘you’ image anymore

      But it DOES display on my site !!
