    Hi folks,
    I've released a Kubrick-style theme which I christened NFO Overload after my site which I designed it for. Have a squiz here if you want it. :)

    It's great! I love the black plastic design. I would love to have it handy, please!

    Sure, just follow the download link on the page I gave the URL for. :)

    BTW, what exactly do you mean by 'black plastic'?

    In IE because you use banners/images in posts (Tokyo, Counter Strike etc.)that are wider than your content area, the right menu is pushed down below the posts.
    Otherwise it's nice, though reminds me of this :)

  5. Well done! Added to the Codex list: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes/Theme_List

    heh, you and your eagle eye moshu ;)

    I just liked the colours and the background on the theme you are referring, but I still like to think that the amount of work I did on this theme... getting it working nicely and all that, plus using slightly different shades entitles me to call it mine. :)
    Plus, I wasn't going to change the colours completely was I?

    Oh, and did I say i detest, hate, abhor, flee from, and wish to murder whoever wrote IE?

    Ta, macmanx :)

    Well, about 2 years ago or so... I was playing with that template kit for a project (that has never been realized), so thanks to my good memory :) I remembered it.
    I agree you've definitely put a lot of work in converting it into a WP theme, so no problem calling it yours.

    my site can't be down! I'm starting to get a bit annoyed with my hosting service, because people keep saying this. I think if you just refresh it should work... Because the link definitely works.

    @Zack56 sorry but your site is DOWN, refreshing will do no good, it is just cookied in on your pc.

    No, I know for a fact that it's live because around the same time you've been trying to access it I've been giving my friends the link and it's worked for them. There must be something screwy with overseas people trying to access it.
    I'm definitely going to complain to my hosting provider now.
    Also, other people from another forum (CSS Creators) were having exactly the same problem, with some being able to access it, while others just simply couldn't. Actually, could it be because their ISP is blocking it rather than because my hosting service is going nuts?

    Working fine for me just now. Like it overall, I think by "black plastic" he means the asphalt grey background with the horiz. lines....

    It is a whole other country, dawg! *laughing* And Zack, I just this moment loaded it up again....

    [Would be absolutely the ONLY time something worked in Utah when it worked nowhere else....]

    OK, there's something screwy going on. Unless your ISP is blocking it, which I doubt. Does anybody here reckon I should change hosts?

    Oh, and have you tried with a different browser? (Could be the problem, even though I think not)

    P.S. What do you guys think of the font I'm using with Image Headlines?

    All I see as to font is something that looks like Verdana....

    Try refreshing, that might fix that problem...

    Cleared cache and hard refreshed - still looks like Verdana to me.

    Strange. I just did a hard refresh and they still appeared...
    It's all a bit beyond me right now - my site not able to be viewed by other people, the plugins not working properly.

    Well, here's what happened to me earlier: I directed a gentleman to my site for a particular reason. He mailed me saying all he saw was a "blank white page". Was viewing fine on my end, so I mailed my daughter in Germany and asked her to look. She got the blank white page as well. So I emailed my host and explained the whole thing to her, and she said she and everyone else in their office could see the page just fine.

    Know what it was? One line in the blacklists: -online. They're both on t-online.de. Moral of the story: dig. Because you just never know where the glitch is. I had validated every theme (I have LOTS installed), disabled every plugin (ditto), reloaded every theme and all the *.php files from the distro....

    Keep looking. It'll show up eventually. Try to retrace your installation steps, undoing one thing at a time....

    Yeah, well, my other site http://www.zackdesign.biz is having the same problems - ie not being viewed properly or at all by other people. I think it's the hosting service screwing that one up.
    About the plugin though - it just should work... Maybe I'll just try and give it time to propagate.

    If you're having background host troubles, that might also be some of it. I'm always hesitant to "advise" people to move hosts, but if you're REALLY unhappy.... or the service etc. just totally suck....
