    I've just installed this: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/minimalist
    but I don't like the scrollbar when you open up pages or the "about" page. How do I get rid of that?

    (just the content scrolls, not the sidebar)

    Thanks!

    I tried this, and it worked.
    Go to stylesheet, find #maincol { ..... overflow-x; hidden... }something like this.
    Change that to overflow: hidden; Or removing the overflow-something line didn't do any harm either. Hope this helps.

    Hello,

    I have a serius problem with the template "the minimalist" by Joey Robinson.
    The theme works very well only in Safari, in the other browser the main font (arial/helvetica) is replaced with times (or similar).
    I don't know why, someone had the same problem?
    On WordPress website, in the preview, that problem already exist...
    Open the preview on safari, after in firefox:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/minimalist

    someone can help me? it's very important.

    thank you!

    same font here in IE7, firefox3.5.6, safari - arialish;
    only he whole page is green in IE7 ;-) instead of white.

    if the problem exists with the original theme - send it back to the author.

    the author link is usually in style.css.

    there is another thought though.
    there is a slight chance that your browser does not have the font - verdana - available from the theme's font-family:

    edit style.css and find quite at the beginning:
    html, body{ padding:20px 0px 20px 0px; margin:0; text-align:center; font-family:verdana; font-size: 13px;}

    try and extend the font-family declaration:
    html, body{ padding:20px 0px 20px 0px; margin:0; text-align:center; font-family:verdana, arial, helvitica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;}

    with font-family, the browser would try to find the font installed on the computer, starting from the left in the list, and then fallback to a default font, which could be times in some browsers.

    if you write a whole list into the font-family, you are giving a better choice to the browser, and you can build a kind of preference.

    like: 'if there is verdana, please use this; but my second choice is arial; and if everything fails, take a font from the generic sans-serifs.'

    ok,

    my css now:

    html, body{ padding:20px 0px 20px 0px; margin:0; text-align:center; font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-style:font-size: 13px;}

    nothing changes :-(

    My safari font default is Times, but the site work ok with helvetica\arial
    My firefox font default is Times, and the site work on times :|

    I have another website with this font and he work well,
    i will try to tell the autor, thanks..
