    This is just a basic layout, with only the bare minimum defined.
    Please tweak this and make it your own. 🙂

    if so, it’s been added

    Can anyone tell me why, even though my CSS validates and everything looks to be in order… IE Win. Mucks up the design?

    The Sidebar shows up at the bottom after the content.

    IE Win <- isn’t that self-explanitory? It has to do with the way things are measured and IE follows the beat of it’s own drummer when it comes to this aspect. I found that if I reduce my content or my side bar 1px at a time until every thing pops back into place, it’ll be OK. I’ve never lost more than 5px when doing this. It does suck however.


    If you have an IE stylesheet you can add “overflow-x: hidden;” to the appropriate divs. You may lose a few pixels of content in IE, but I just don’t bother with IE much anymore. I’ve decided I can’t support their nonsense.

    I wish I could just drop it… but my stats show 26% IE 6.0 vs 8% alternate (read: good) browsers.

    Well I went down as much as 12px on my sidebar etc… and nothing seemed to fix the error. Odd… cause I know that has worked in the past.

    This is really nice.

    Has anyone been able to implement livesearch into this theme doesnt want to take it for me.

    I fixed the IE bug, it was in the definition of the ‘width’ of the link area… I noticed that when I clicked a link in the sidebar there was a dotted box that extended into the content so I removed it.

    i found a couple of bugs for instance my posts are showing double categories like if a category is site it shows site site.

    Also coments shows the poster of the comment but not the text of the comment.

    Any solutions?

    I don’t know about the comments problem, but the latest version of the skin should fix the double category issue… my hands shake and sometimes I hit the paste key multiple times without knowing it. My bad.

    This fix worked for me. Replace all /* Menu */ in the CSS.

    /* Menu */
    #sidebarcontainer {
    float: right;
    width: 204px;
    padding: 5px 0 0; /*This adjusts spacing between sidebar and top*/

    .sidebar {
    color: #21262A;
    margin: 0 6px 4px 0;

    .sidebar h2 {
    background: #E5E5E5 url('images/sidetitlebg.gif');
    color: #3A3523;
    font-size: 1.2em;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-family: "Georgia", "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Arial, "Trebuchet MS", sans-serif;
    padding: 4px 10px;
    width: 178px;

    .sidebarul {
    padding: 0px 0 5px 0; /*This adjusts spacing between sidebar blocks*/
    margin: 0;

    .sidebarul li {
    background: #EEEEEE;
    padding: 2px 10px;
    margin: 1px 0 0 0;
    width: 178px;
    overflow-x: hidden;

    .sidebarul li:hover {
    background: #E7E7E7;
    padding: 2px 10px;
    margin: 1px 0 0 0;
    width: 178px;

    .sidebarul li a:link, .sidebarul li a:visited {
    background: url('images/arrow.gif') left center no-repeat;
    padding: 0 0 0 10px;
    width: 178px;
