    The template can now be downloaded here. Please direct any questions regarding the template itself to LaughingLizard. In cases of troubles during the download feel free to contact me.

    I've looked at the template in both Firebird .7 and IE (Win) 6, and in both browsers, the outside columns overlap the the center column, obscuring the text.

    I guess I should check with a lower resolution to see how my template looks. :-P I fixed it for 1024/768. The issue was that the header CSS tag did not have margins setup. Should look a little better now. This hack should work for the main template as well Cena. Simply add this line to the default WordPress template (under #header):
    margin-right:150px;

    Ah...resolution issues didn't occur to me; I"m using 800x600. :)
    And thanks for the hack, I'll try it out.

    I received a complete error and had to do with line 7:
    require_once("wp-last_visit.php");
    I went back to default since I don't want the site down. I have replaced both index.php and wp_layout.css file but didn't work. Any idea?

    This is a great theme! Would it be usable for b2? I'm really new to b2 and I'm also lazy so I don't want to learn how to create my own layout. LOL I don't want to offer the option of visitors choosing a layout, I just want to use one layout that's dark and well done like this one is.
    Thanks!

    You should (altho I haven't had a chance to try it just yet) be able to modify the CSS to include a height attribute and set it to 100%... I /think/ that will work, but not 100% sure....

    TG:
    I tried this
    ##########
    #menu {
    background-color: #eee;
    /*border-left: 1px dotted #ccc;*/
    border-top: solid 3px #565;
    border-right: solid 3px #565;
    padding: 2px 0 1px 10px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 0;
    top: 0;
    width: 160px;
    height: 100%;
    }
    ###########
    to test the right column and did not do anything in my Mozilla 1.5. The grey bar stops after the last code in the <div></div> section. I am still trying to get the columns to go all the way down to the blsck footer on the page and be free from blog updates leaving gaps.
    Please help. MAybe you can not mix exact pixels and percentages in CSS, I do not know

    Presto,
    What if instead of trying to get the outside columns to have vertical bars all the way from top to bottom, you simply add the bars to the left and right sides of the centre column?
    Here is a GREAT site that can help you out with dealing with the CSS and a three-column layout: http://www.positioniseverything.net/

    You can play with the look of your template if you go to the following link, it will also show you the css code: http://www.fu2k.org/alex/css/layouts/3Col_OrderedAbsolute.mhtml.

    Is this theme compatible with the 1.0 upgrade. Kinda new to WP. Installed it the other day - "seamless installation". I just upgraded to 1.0, but then I ran across this thread and decided to give this theme a go, but I get the following errors -
    Warning: main(/home/testmember/public_html/blog//b2template.functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/testmember/public_html/blog/blog.header.php on line 10
    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '/home/testmember/public_html/blog//b2template.functions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/testmember/public_html/blog/blog.header.php on line 10

    Rupe...not 1.0 compatible yet. It will be soon I hope, just not yet.

    Rupe,
    The simple answer is "no" WP 1.0 will not be compatible with your template. Which theme, exactly, did you attempt to install? Perhaps someone is already working on a fix.
    The reason that the template is not compatible is that the developers cleaned up a lot of code and harmonized the naming conventions in 1.0. Most of the b2*.* files are now renamed, integrated into another file, or perhaps even renamed and moved to a new folder. This is not catastrophic, and can easily be fixed.
    As part of the documentation effort, I will try to help you find out the exact changes to the file names and locations and pass that along to you and anyone else who may wish to update templates.
    There may also be some deprecated tags, or new / changed functions as well.
    Thanks for your patience as we work our way through this landmark release and documentation effort!
    Craig.

    Hey Craig - thanks for the quick response.
    The one from otaku42's link above (second post). That would really be ashame....I am not too familiar with the system here yet so if anyone has a quick fix, it would really be nice.
    LaughingLi's site: http://dinki.mine.nu/weblog/ showcases it.

    Rupe,
    You want a site like Marks? EEEEK! <evil grin> Mark is gonna get me for that. I'm sure that all the templates will be dealt with quickly after some of the action settles down from the new release!
    Craig.
    PS...I'll have a look at the template myself to see if I can narrow some stuff down.

    Nuke,
    No probs.....I am having a bit of fun hacking it right now - but without the 1.0 upgrade. not sure how much the templating system changed with the full 1.o ver, but it seems easy enuff to play with for now until the gurus get to it.

    Hopefully, someone will update the 3 column CSS template for version 1.0.
    I need any 3 column template but I don't know how to work with CSS.

    Since I made the Mindful Musings template WordPress 1.0 compatible and there has been considerable amount of interest in downloading that template, I cleaned it up a little and posted it for everyone. Here is the link to what the cleaned version looks like and the download link to the zip file. Unlike other WP templates, you will need to upload the included index.php to get everything to look right. This update is ONLY for WP1.0 users.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks LaughingLizard, But could you make the columns as :
    info through others on the Left column
    The weblogs on the center column
    Calendar through Categories on the right column?
    Thank in advance.

    "Documents referring to this site within the last 24 hours (minimum 2 references):
    No referrals for this page yet.
    List referrers to your own site with a single Javascript command (free!): click here." ?
    Works great but could you tell me how to remove the above from the index page?
    I tried removing "<center><script language="Javascript" src="http://www.downes.ca/referrers.js"></script><br/>" but I get an index error.

    Also, is this part of WordPress 1.0 or from LaughingLizard's new template?
    1/7/2004
    # Title!
    Category">[
    * Category
    ] — MyUserName @ 12:06 am
    That is how it is showing up on my current format. On the old format (0.72), it shows as :
    Category Name � MyUsername @ 5:04 am Title
    So on the new format, how can I remove the gaps and have the name of the category show up only once? Showing up as twice right now.
