    I am looking for a theme that has the catagories on the top, preferably as tabs.. I am trying to convert the website articles into blog format and this would be a great help. If any theme comes to mind or you can think of another easy way to get this, please let me know

    Thanks Missy

    Take a look at my MistyLook theme at http://wpthemes.info/misty-look/

    and once you got it downloaded, open up the header.php, and look for the line
    <?php wp_list_pages(...blah..blah..) ?> and
    replace it with
    <?php wp_list_cats('children=0')?>

    if you have too many categories, the tabs don't look good.
    otherwise it should be good.

    try it out and post here if any issues.

    The suggestion Sadish offered about flipping wp_list_pages for wp_list_cats would work for quite a few themes.

    (and I rather like the Misty Look theme)

    Hey! What a good idea.... I've always loved the Orange Sky theme, but without the pages, with cats instead on the tabs! Never ocurred to me to change them out. Thanks Sadish!

    The idea sounds great, I see there are at least 3 versions of this theme out there, I was able to download verios 2 and version 2.3, the versios 1.0.3 had a bad link. The two that I downoalded did not have the line you made reference to. Maybe I am blind, but I could not find it, if you can give me more help, it would be appreciated

    open it in notepad and Ctrl+F "wp_list_pages"

    you should be able to find it.

    version 2.3 is the latest.

    Thank you Sadish, that totaly helped, now if I can ask about another possible tweak, as nice as the opening graphic is, is there a way i can substitute one that more fits what my website is about?

    Thanks for all the help so far, Missy
