    Hi there

    Great theme - thanks for your work :)

    I've noticed that when using AIOSEO this theme produces duplicate description tags - one generated by header.php outputting the theme's description and the page/post specific description tag generated by AIOSEO.

    Have you considered adding an SEO switch to the theme to turn off the default description when an SEO plugin is active?

    The Thematic framework currently builds a switch to control a variety of SEO related functions around the following - which may need updating but gives the general idea:

    if ( class_exists('All_in_One_SEO_Pack') || class_exists('HeadSpace_Plugin') || class_exists('Platinum_SEO_Pack') || class_exists('wpSEO') || defined('WPSEO_VERSION') )

    Thanks for the fix! I'll look to integrate it into the next version I release.

    I can't seem to find the place in Thematic that you're referencing -- do you have a particular file it appears in so I can track it down?

    Here's the file: http://code.google.com/p/thematic/source/browse/trunk/library/extensions/header-extensions.php although what I was suggesting with the snippet above is to create a simple conditional statement in your header.php to turn off the description tag.

    The thematic system is a bit more involved but it may be handy to see it in action.

    Hey Bob33:
    Thanks. I've integrated the fixes into a beta version. Can you grab it here and give it a test? Let me know the results.

    Thanks!

    Hi ZaMoose - no claims to an exhaustive testing but seems to be working as intended :)

    Those plugins have various levels of control over the robots meta tag but your defaults seem pretty safe.

    Did you mean to include the viewport tag in your robots statement (line 21 in header.php)?

    Also noticed that a 'not found' search result came up as just a blank page for me.

    Keep up the good work :)

    Bob33:
    Whoops. Viewport is part of the responsive design that's coming in 1.4. I accidentally included it in the backport of the SEO stuff. I'll release another version ASAP.

    Could you enable WP_DEBUG and see if you're getting any fatal errors on that 'not found' result? I've noticed some weirdness on URLs that BuddyPress tries to glom onto, but I can't seem to replicate the White Screen of Death you describe.

    Thanks!

    Sorry ZaMoose, should have been more specific - just not seeing your 404 template on a /s?=404 result - the page content is blank, sidebars etc are all intact.

    Getting a debug notice with that blank page: Undefined variable: s in .../elbee-elgee-1.3.6-beta4/searchform.php on line 4

    Hope that's some help

    Bob:
    Is that blank search results bug cropping up on my theme or merely my live site? It looks like it may have been a bad plugin malfunction on my live site if that's what you're referring to...

    I get the blank page result with an unsuccessful search when running 1.3.6-beta4 on my local server.

    body class="search search-no-results" ==> div id="lb-content" is empty.

    But if you can't replicate this and if no one else is reporting it could be some glitch on my end.

    Are you running the Search Everything plugin by any chance?

    Hi,

    I can't seem to get a welcome message on the home page or front page and could really use some assistance... I have seen some demos that have a welcome message on the homepage without the comment, time stamp, date, author, and the rest.... can anyone help figure out how to add a welcome message to my home page?

    Okay, I've got it nailed down. Stupid, stupid error on my part. 1.3.6 will have a fix -- want the beta beforehand?

    Awesome! I've got one last set of things to test out and then I'm shoving the final 1.3.6 out the door!
