    kingcosmonaut, well, Blix is great too. I love it. I'm working on changing the colors tho. I just downloaded wordpress for the first time and i'm exploring it atm.

    The blix theme is little buggy for me. If i use a 2 words in the menu, it automaticly creates a <br> after the first word [Crappy IE only]. I dont know if u understand what i mean so i took a SS.

    Looks great, you should submit it to the Theme Competition. :)

    one thing i would (that i'm going to try do with the template) is to group multiple posts for a single day 'together'. have a look at:

    http://www.alexking.org/software/wordpress/themes/blog/index.php?wptheme=anarchy

    and you'll see what i mean (have a look at the two posts done on the 16th of march) :)

    apart from that, an outstanding theme! well done.

    Sainty, good catch!
    The fix: Just add white-space:nowrap; to the rules for #navigation li
    I will also update the zip.

    Regarding the Theme Competition: As soon as I've got some spare time I will definitely submit Blix.

    ineedhelp, not a bad idea, but it just won't work with Blix.

    About if single PHP snippet, I want the sidebar on the front to show the same as in a post. How do I do that? What do I remove? I tried it my self but I get errors so help please. Hate copying and pasteing the sidebar.

    kingcosmonaut-

    In line 34 of index.php there's this:

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="Permalink"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    However, when I rollover the title of my post, it only shows "Permalink" and then the URL to it; the title doesn't show. I tried changing it to:

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="Permalink <?php the_title(); ?>"></a></h2>

    But that didn't work either; instead it made the titles disappear. My skill at php may be to blame, but I was using an index.php from another theme as a reference and thought that would be the solution.

    Any ideas?

    davincim, The Title is just like alt...as you see, It has no link in it. If you want the perma link to show, Change the code to:

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" " title="Permalink: <?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    Should work ;).

    Thanks XeroCool. Maybe I was looking at the wrong piece of code as a reference. I'll give it a try. :)

    Sorry, wait. Change the code to:

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" " title="Permalink: <?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    Little extra " was in there ;).

    Thanks again for the help, XeroCool, but I don't think I'm clearly explaining what I'm trying to do.

    The code you provided does work, but only if you want to show the URL (permalink). What I'm trying to do is show the actual name of the post after "Permalink". That's why I thought the_title was the way to go. Check out my blog and rollover one of my posts and you'll see what I mean: http://familywebwatch.com/blog/

    Easy.

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" " title="Permalink: <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    Haha, but that's where the problem lies. :)

    If I add that the titles disappear. ???

    kingcosmonaut:

    I wanted to take a break from tweaking things on my blog with your theme and tell you that you surprised me with the preview in the comments. I was about to add that plugin, but when I typed a comment in for grins, BAM! the functionality was already there.

    Kudos! :)

    Figured it out. I wasn't going far enough. Here's what worked:

    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="Permalink to: <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?>

    Edit: now that I look back on the previous post from XeroCool, I guess I must have missed something because both lines look identical, that or I'm too tired. :)

    Stunning stuff - what's that font you use in the title?

    @m8rk: it's Georgia

    Just wanted to point out that I've fixed subcategories (while I still think it's a WP bug) as well as highlighting of custom pages upon selection.

    Can you please port your theme so the sidebar on the front is the same in Archives and posts?

    Well, it just depends on what you want to have in your sidebar. You can copy and paste it to the top of your sidebar.php and delete the rest (the if/else stuff). Best would be to drop me a line using my contact form.

    Cheers
