    Oh wow, that's sweet! Glad you choose to use WP Framework. How did you like working with it? Any problems or milestones you ran into while developing that theme?

    The nice thing about WP Framework is that you don't need to do much with it to make it "work" for you .. me like :-)

    Ptahdunbar,

    I'm using your WP Framework theme, which has been for the most part smooth sailing.

    Could you shed some insight on the functionality behind your widgets script for the theme? I'm attempting to add additional widget fields in other parts of the template but am finding that that messes up the code that you have in place. I'm following the typical instruction for adding additional widgets.

    For example, in a typical template, I would edit the functions.php and add a new function like so:

    if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') ) {
        register_sidebar(array(
    	 'name' => 'Home Sub',
    	 'id' => 'home-sub',
    	 'before_widget' => '<div class="home_sub_widget">',
    	 'after_widget' => '</div>',
    	 'before_title' => '<h4>',
    	 'after_title' => '</h4>'
    	 ));
    }

    Then in the desired template page, like sidebar.php, I would add code that looks something like this:

    <?php dynamic_sidebar('home-sub'); ?>

    Doing this would automatically make a new widget appear in my admin panel on the back end and then I can drag and drop into it the desired widgets to display there.

    I'm using the latest version of word press-2.9.2, so perhaps this is part of the problem. Following the above steps in your template's widgets.php file however broke the existing widget and caused it to behave strangely. Any thoughts.

    Great Template otherwise. I really like the fading menus which I've incorporated with CSS drop shadows for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Not able to get CSS drop shadows in MS Explorer, but not a big deal.

    The site I'm working on is http://www.uwnu.org/beta, which will move to http://www.uwnu.org/ when it goes live.

    Thanks,
    Brent
