I really love this theme too. It's the most professional and clean theme i have found for wordpress.
I also have the same issue with the sidebar, and inserted comments to each post to fix this, but if somebody can tell me where the php code needs to be changed i will gladly do it.
But i also have another search bug: if i use the sidebar search and try to open a post from the search result list, nothing happens.
This is my blog: smartphoneblogging.com
Can somebody tell me why the search results can't be opened?
