    I have recently completed an update from WP 1.2 to WP 1.5.2 (and a blog redesign using a slightly tweaked default layout). Everything appears to be working & validating OK (with one exception...the grey background is not displaying in the suidebar on single posts...if you have a fix let me know) but I'd appreciate your feedback...so go ahead and do your worst...

    Yes, I did ask for it...

  2. You shoulda waited another week. WordPress 2.0 comes out Monday. ;)

    Luckily though, there was no modification in the way themes work, i.e. your theme will work without a hitch. :)

    Anyway, nice, but it's not that much customized from the default Kubrick, is it? ;) I would add a bit of padding around your floating images though -- the text bumps right up next to them.

    Thanks... I also should have included the URI for the blog...doh!


    You're right, the modifications are all minor - mainly a different header, a sidebar for single posts and some different coloured links and a couple of plug ins.

    BTW, you're right about the padding. What code would you suggest (and where...in the style.css presumably?)

  4. I'd give the images a class if I want them to float. That was I can change them all at once or what not. Here's the code I use:

    <img src="..." class="floatright" />

    And then I have these classes. Where in the class file doesn't matter.

    .floatleft {
    float: left;
    margin-right: 10px;
    margin-bottom: 7px;
    .floatright {
    float: right;
    margin-left: 10px;
    margin-bottom: 7px;

    That's funny, I was going to say the same thing about the images. ;)

    Thanks Viper,

    As I was putting in your code I noticed that there's already an "alignright" class in the default style sheet which I wasn't using (I was using align='right' instead...I'm just an old fashioned rabbi...). I tried it with your code (which does the job), then settled on the "alignright" class which also aligns the image horizontally with the top of the text.
