    I have recently updated my site, which still needs some tweaking. Can anyone offer any thoughts or comments? http://www.circle61.com

    Does anyone know how to make links or archives from the sidebar appear on other pages of the site ie. about or work?

    Thanks

    Copy the call to sidebar.php into the destination pages.
    <?php include "sidebar.php"; ?>

    Ah, so you are using the internal page creator, and not just separate pages then. You didn't say specifically, and I assumed you were using standalone pages, and not the dynamic pages.

    No I am using stand alone pages. Do I need an include or require at the top of the page?

    Thanks

    If I use the following:

    <?php include('header.php'); ?>

    would I be best to add http://circle61.com/wp-content....(as the path)?

    And what code would extact the search or categories file?

    Thanks again

    Colours: A bit too grey for my liking. You have so many warm and 'happy' colours in your header - why use so much grey anyway?

    Typography: Your headlines are pretty small - you should give them more weight and colour to make them stand out - so your reader's eye can jump easily from one entry to the next. Also navigational texts (like comments or the date) could be smaller to draw less attention.

    Layout: Nice proportions - dislike the many box areas. Just make the layout to static and blocky. Give yourself a bit more space - less boxes and lines.

    Overall very nice.
