    Any themes listed on this forum have to be released under GPL. I appreciate that this is probably what you meant but can you confirm this?

    Yes. I also added a GPL license to the theme download

    There is a slight problem with the packaging which prevents the theme from being installed from the dashboard.
    You need to move the theme folder one up.

    :)
    There is another problem. This folder doesn't exist:
    /includes/iconset/dryicons

    Ans how about adding WP3 compatibility? :)

    @ofutur: It doesnt work with WP3? Its supposed to be compatible if the thematic framework is compatible

    I've just tried again and it doesn't .
    As if the CSS wasn't loaded properly, everything collapses to the left. There is also the missing icons problem.

    Please note that I haven't installed Coda-Slider, but the rest of the site should still load properly.

    Nice theme. Where did you find it?

    @ofutur i tested on WP 3.0.1 and it works fine but i think i figured out your problem. You didnt choose the "featured page" template for the home page :-)

    I have added the dryicons set to the download

    Well. I don't seem to get it work either. WP 3.0 problem?
    What you mean by "featured page"?
    Can I install the the Coda-slider via the desktop?

    What you mean by "featured page"?

    If you visit my page http://affiliatesuccess.eu you will see a slide show above on the page.
    This I can only use from posts "home" page. If I create post not in the "home" this will count as regular content not post,then I will not be able to mark it as featured and will not be shown in my slide.

    @DesignlabAmsterdam

    First of all, do you have thematic theme installed? Does the theme work well when selected?

    No, you do NOT need to install the Coda-slider, it is included in the js folder already.

    A featured page template is just a wordpress page template period. I created one for this theme that can be used to display content you want to highlight (like the home page of a portfolio site) Check out http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages

    I am guessing your confusion comes probably from the fact that my featured page template was named "front page". So i have renamed the Template name to "featured page (front-page.php)" and updated the readme.txt file.

    @klauzer

    Hmm seems like you are using an English translator, i see alot of yoda subject/object thing going on in your sentences.

    Like @Klauzer said. Yes you can use this in Home page (That is a page, not a post. Then go to settings->reading then select "static" and make "home" your front page), but you should be able to use it with any page (that is not a post)

    If you have indeed created a page(that is not a post) and made it your front page, you should be able to see content in your slider that you have marked as "featured" category (assuming you have created this category)

    @Iambeboy Thx. Thematic works fine. When I set the about page or another page to use "front page" template it works fine to. Home is still the problem.
    The Coda slider setting via the admin is that possible?
    I wiil check further tomorrow.

    Klauzer, I think lambeboy speaks about Yoda (the Jedi master in Star Wars) is english is correct but he use to put the subject after the object in his sentences, nothing bad (for exemple : "your father, he is", instead of "he is your father" ! ;o)
    Anyway, very nice template !

    Some quick instructions.

    Homepage:
    -Create an empty home page, select the front-page.php template
    -Create a new "main menu"
    -Add the home page to this menu as well as other pages if you want to
    -Select the menu as the theme's menu

    Change the text:
    -Edit front-page.php and put in your own links and text
    -Edit functions.php and modify the footer

    Change the slider's content:
    -Edit includes/feature-front-x.php, where is x is a number
    -Add posts to the featured category. The featured image will be used for the slider and the text will be added on top, at the bottom.
