    I updated the theme this morning. Now my widgets do not show up in sidebar. Instead Archives and Meta are there.

    Also, I use the no sidebar template on one of my pages and it is showing white space instead brown all the way across.

    When will the next release be? I am in the process of creating a new blog and don't want to start promoting it until it's fixed. Thanks so much!

    I've uploaded it for review, now it's up to the theme review team to approve and sync it... so anywhere from a few hours to a week!

  6. Gotcha, sixhours - just waiting on one of those guys to sync it up now ;)

    I had the same problem with my site. I hope the correction updated is soon.

    Can you let us know what files were updated in 1.3.1 so we can manually download them from SVN?

    Style, page-nosidebar, and sidebar.

    Any updates on when the scrappy update will occur? Scheduled to launch soon and getting a little antsy... I don't know how to do anything "manually" so it's been a waiting game for me.

    Sometime in the next week. The review team and admins are volunteers and syncing to Extend is a manual process for them. Your patience is appreciated!

    I am glad to see I am not the only one having problems. My site was launched last month after much work and now I have archives, a meta box and the words are fuzzy. It took me forever to figure it out the first time!

    I will be waiting patiently! I love this theme!

    Mommycubed (:)) the sidebars will be fixed, but I don't know why the font would be "fuzzy". It's possible you were running a much older version... I did update the body font several revisions back, but not with the latest update...

    When I first found your theme, I did delete my upload and uploaded it from your "child" theme (or so I thought!).

    Here is my site...can it be fixed? I am not php or css savvy...everything I do is from a Google search and then I learn it.

    Thank you!

    It doesn't look broken to me... the font looks fine here. Can you post a screenshot so I can see what you're seeing?

    It looked fuzzy in Chrome (some letters have some extra thick lines), but fine in Firefox. If you are seeing it fine, then I guess it is!

    Not sure how to put a screen shot here...

    Weird, I'm browsing with Chrome, too. You can upload the screenshot to your site's media library, then just link to it here. :)

    You got it!

    I do see what you mean. I did some research, and this is pointing to an issue with Chrome for Windows (I'm on a Mac, which explains why it looks OK to me).

    You could conceivably replace the Alegreya font with something less fancy--adding something like this to your child theme's style.css might work:

    body {
      font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    }

    But really, the problem lies with Chrome's lack of font smoothing in Windows. :/

    You are wonderful! I will not touch anything right now...too scared to mess up my work!

    Looking forward to the update and getting rid of the archives and meta box!

    Hi Everyone, I just did the update and the widgets are working. However for me the widgets arent at the top right of the page, they are at the bottom of the page closer to my first post. This doesnt seem to be right. Please help!

    I created a child theme and I am continuing to change colors etc and customize the page before I write real posts (just playing around right now with random text and photos for look) But I also cant seem to find the code to change the Widget headers from the green boxes to another color. I may just have to look harder. But the widgets should be at the top of the page right??? Please help!

    Laura, try disabling your child theme to rule out a conflict with the new style sheet. If that doesn't work, please post a new topic since your issue is not related to the original post. Thanks!

    Hi, when the update was released it did fix the sidebar widget problems (thank you!), but I still have the issue with the no-sidebar page template. I have an amazon store page and it gets cut off. (http://www.lesserhomesandgardens.com/my-store/)

    I was thinking the brown background should go all the way to the right, but instead there is a white space. I checked it in Chrome and Firefox and it's the same in both.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Kerry. This is an issue with the code you're embedding, not the theme. The content area allows content to extend all the way, but the embed is not that wide. (For example, if you placed several paragraphs of text in that area instead of the iframe it would fill up the full column width.)

    Oh darn! Thanks for the quick reply. I will see what I can find out about the iframe.

    But really, the problem lies with Chrome's lack of font smoothing in Windows. :/

    Unfortunately somehow this exists on the mac too. I am using Safari (5.1.7) and some times when I load a page some headings get crispy. After refreshing the page, sometimes it appears fine. I also tried with Google Chrome, but it happens there too.

    Any ideas? My gf loves that font and we would hate to change it with a simple one like Arial :(
