    ill be honest and say I dont know if it makes a difference, but this isnt in your header:

    <link rel="EditURI" type="application/rsd+xml" title="RSD" href="http://" />

    I **think** you need to have that in your header.

    change to the default theme, and see if it works.


    That did the trick.

    Thanks a lot!!
