Blog upgrade

I’ve upgraded the blog software to WordPress 1.5 from 1.2.1. With version 1.5 comes themes, which means I’ll need to do some tweaking to suit. It also brings improved “spam” comment handling, “pages”, and various other cool features.

One annoying thing that I’ll try to tweak is how the right hand column appears and disappears willy-nilly in IE 6 depending on how wide one sets the IE browsers.

Update: Shifting to the “Shaded Grey” theme seemed to work wonders with rendering under IE. The theme needs its own set of tweaks, but that will hopefully come as time goes by.

    Hi, * your the first site I left my website on
    I’m having a problem with my header. I’m satisfied with the graphic (after 5 attempts) but the line that separates the links from the posts continue up a little and you can see some of it on the top. How do I get rid of them?

    Thanks in advance!

    Edit the Header Template. Remove the “div=”navmenu”” section. That should free up space at the top that you are not using.
