    If you've commented out the code, try refreshing your browser, you may be viewing a cached version.

    If commenting out did not remove it, just delete the code entirely. HOWEVER, I would make a backup copy of any and all files you're editing, just in case.

    Jeff:

    If you look back at the post where I commented out some code, you will see the way to comment out code.

    There are basically two ways depending on what type of code.

    for HTML

    <!-- code to comment out -->

    For PHP

    <?php // code to comment out ?> This will comment out everything on that line.

    I think you can use /* some code in the middle */ to comment out code in the middle of php code.

    If you don't see <?php or <? before the code you can assume it is HTML.

    As Traci noted ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP FIRST.

    An easy way I like to do it when using WP editor is Select all text (CTRL + A)
    Open a text editor like notepad and copy the text, then save the document.

    You can restore the file in the reverse order.

    Also make sure that the file you are editing is writable. You will get a message from WP if it is not. If WP says it was successful you are OK.
    The other message is something like "if this file was writable your changes would have been saved" I always got a kick out of that one.

    If you want that theme without a sidebar, I can do that.

    Jeff:

    I tried accessing the site, but get a broken link error.

    If I understand correctly you want a comment box but don't want to display tags or categories.

    If you can send me a link with an example it might be easier to understand.

    If the above is correct I will send you the code to correct or a .php file to replace the existing one.

    PM me with your email so I can send it to you.

    Thank you very much.

    Clay:

    I like it's flexability and out-of-the box features. It seems a bit overwhelming at first, but once you get to know it, it is easier to manage than Wordpress.

    The content is the priority and is handled well.

    I have not had to mess with a single file yet to get things configured.

    The other thing I like is that I can use full php code if I like without a plugin.

    Simply put it is more of a full featured Content management system than wordpress.

    Wordpress blows it away on blogging, but that is what Wordpress was designed to do.

    Drupal does have a blog and a forum built in, but both lack the features you would really want.

    My main reason for investigating Drupal is that I wanted to mimic features found in Membership Platforms and that meant a full featured Forum. I know that wordpress has a forum plugin and you can probably integrate popular forums with it, but I have not seen any done as seamlessly as you can do with drupal.

    When I have Time I will create more themes for both Wordpress and Drupal and make them available to SSWT members.

    Thanks for the kind words about the Theme. If you have any requests on color or layout for future themes, let me know and I will try to crate them.

    Pablo,

    I think your WP theme is absolutely beautiful! I may try to use it on one of my future blogs. Thank you!

    It sounds interesting. I took a PHP class in college so it may be something to look into for a future PHP site. I am a bit of a studyholic. I am taking web analytics this semester.

    Thank you very much for the theme and offer for changes. It looks really nice. It would be fun to talk about how you create WP themes one of these days.

    I was wondering if you will be using the cool domain name Lynn suggested in the Elite private forum. I used to work for HP as a business manager for DRAM, Intel, and PC boards and was thinking of either building a PC or Camera site. I was going to PM you yet it is not turned on yet.

    I was wondering if anyone wanted to try it on a current version of Wordpress. Of course if you like the theme you can keep it.

    The latest version I tried was 2.21 Kind of worked here, problem with a missing function the_title_attribute.

    The link is http://www.topwebsecrets.com/wpblueonblue.zip

    I don't really use Wordpress too much any more. I am currently learning Drupal. I am considering creating a free themes website and want to include Wordpress Themes.

    To download the theme, go to the first post with the link. right click with mouse on top of the link, select "save target as", save it as the same name. two minutes later it is on your computer.

    I save all my themes in a folder wordpress/themes I save cool plug ins in wordpress/plugins

    This way they are easy to find when I build a site.

    Thanks Clay for answering Rhonda's question. Here is the link again

    http://www.topwebsecrets.com/wpblueonblue.zip


    Clay, I use artisteer to create the themes, It is in my signature (affiliate link).

    There is a free trial offer if you want to test it out. It is a little price, but well worth the money. Although I know some php and could probably build a theme from scratch, it is a lot of work and this program makes at as easy as drag and drop. The blueonblue theme took me about 15 minutes to generate.

    The neat thing here is that I can build a theme and use the identical theme for Wordpress or Drupal. So, say I wanted to use WP as my blog (which I am considering) and Drupal as my main CMS, I could use the same theme and it would look like you never left the site. Pretty cool.

    Like I said earlier in this thread I am probably going to generate a bunch of themes and put up a free themes and templates site. I will monetize using affiliate links for artisteer and video tutorials for WP and Drupal.

    I am not really that artistic, but the program has a "suggest" feature which cycles through different combinations, I just use that till I find one I like.

    Pablo
