Simply Works Core
"Simply Works" Simply Doesn't Work (2 posts)

    I'm a new WordPress user (just two weeks old), but I've been a professional programmer for just over thirty years. I've successfully setup WordPress on my local development PC and my commercial web hosting account, with over a dozen different theme packs. However, "SimplyWorks" doesn't [work], as the title indicates.

    The above link points to a screenshot of the results I'm getting. I haven't begun to modify anything. Essentially, I'm just installing WordPress for various people, to begin my evaluation of this wonderful and powerful system. All new themes except for SimplyWorks render properly. SimplyWorks doesn't render correctly on a very recent version of Firefox (17.1), IE 8 (under XP), or Chrome (24.0.1312.52 m).

    I've completely removed this theme (deleted the sub-dir and contents) reinstalled it via WordPress and manually. No joy. I've downloaded many themes so far and am aware that many unsupported, pre-3.0 themes have similar rendering issues. I thought SimplyWorksCore [1.5.8] was an up-to-date theme. To reiterate, I'm using WP 3.5 but I'm not looking for someone to swoop in to fix this for me. I'd simply like to understand why an unmodified theme isn't working on an unmodified system. I use wampserver2.2e-php5.4.3-httpd2.2.22-mysql5.5.24-32b on my local Windows XP testbed and I have a Linux Business hosting account on 1and1 @ jetman3.net.

    This issue isn't preventing additional progress and eventually I'll return to this package and uncover why it has rendering issues, right out of the box. Thanks in advance for your consideration....

    WordPress published sidebar widgets in the first one available. In the case of simply works core that is top widget in the header to be used for Phone numbers or ads.

    All you need to do is open the admin panel and move the default widgets.

    I hope that helps.
