That did the trick! THANKS!!
This was my first question on this forum and you nailed it!
So if you would indulge me on a couple more I would appreciate it greatly:
Is there a plugin that can change the comments to come out in the 3rd column always linked to the current post or page?
Is there a plugin that can cause a page to be popped on top of the current page - with the usual slight transparency?
Is there a voting/polling module that be inserted at the end of a post and can execute a link with each answer (while still updating the polling db?)
If a solution does not exist for any of these my last question is can you recommend an experienced plug-in coder that might be interested in doing it?
