    Hello,

    I've tried to use Google Translator but the I didn't understand anything of the page of this theme.

    My two questions are:

    - is there a way to set a number of columns to show in home page?
    - is there a way to set the width of the content area of posts/pages?

    Thank you for your help!

    I have done this by hacking the CSS. My site is restricted to three columns. I set a max-width on the ‘#container’ and ‘#footer’. I also put a max-width on the ‘div.post-body’ style to stop single post text spreading across all columns; all my images just float to the right of the text. You may need to experiment with the CSS a little as I have customised the theme quite a bit now.

    @yellowfields,

    thanks for the tip.. I love your site, well done!
    I'm trying to achieve a similar thing...
    I want the grid posts within a set frame, with added top and side bars for posts from other sources..
    can you help? thanks.

    I set a max-width on the ‘#container’ and ‘#footer’ and created an additional 5th column, but my entries still show in one column. Any ideas why my entries won`t line up in 5 columns?

    richbate,

    Thanks for the feedback. Sorry, slow reply but never received notification of your question, and I haven't been back here for a while.

    In my site, sidebar sits at the top and sidebar2 sits at the bottom. The top one is designed for text (links), and the one at the bottom holds the other text links to pages and categories.

    I'm not sure you can fix the the grid within a frame, as it has to flex for the content. Not quite sure what you are trying to achieve, but I suspect you will need to customise the index file and the sidebar files to accommodate the content you want to include.
