    I saw your WP theme and thought it was very nicely done. Would it be okay if I developed the WP theme into a style for the Vanilla forum software?

    Hi Jim,

    That would be fine as long as the credit for the original design remains intact. I’m glad you like the theme!

    Love the theme - am thinking of using it through the holidays, but I was wondering if there is a way to change the font size for us html-impaired. The big size is actually less readable for me!

    Hi Robbin,

    I don’t know if you want to change the size of all the fonts or just the main body text, so I’ll just start by telling you how to change the main body text. If you need to know how to change the other fonts as well, then just let me know.

    First, open the file called style.css with a basic text editor such as Notepad. Don’t use anything like Microsoft Word.

    Next, scroll down the file ’till you see this (it’s right near the top):

    body {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 14px;
    background-color: #467839;
    color: #343434;
    margin: 0px 0px 50px;
    }

    Notice where it says font-size: 14px; — change the number 14 to a smaller number. 12 may work well. And, obviously if you want the font bigger, just put in a bigger number.

    Finally, save the file and upload it to the VermilionChristmas folder on your server.

    This change will only affect the size of the entry text and the comment text.

    Let me know if you have any problems or if you need to know more.

    Hi Kieth,
    I like the template but the archives are not functioning properly with this template. I have other templates installed, and the theme switcher but it seems to be only this one that isn’t working. The images in archived posts are not showing up and the links are not hyperlinks, bu just text.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Len,

    Don’t worry, this is easy to fix.

    The archives are functioning properly, but they’re just different from what you’re used to. There are certain advantages to having the archives work this way - such as helping to avoid potential duplicate content penalties from search engines.

    But if you want change it to what you’re used to, then here’s how to do it.

    First, open the file named archive.php with a simple text editor such as Notepad.

    Next, find this line of code:

    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    Then, replace it with this line of code:

    <?php the_content() ?>

    Finally, save the file and upload it to your server.

    Make sure you have a backup of the original file just in case you make a mistake.

    If you have any problems just let me know.

    Hi gutielua,

    I’m glad you like it!

    I’m not sure I completely understand you’re question. Just putting div tags around an image won’t center an image.

    But there is a very simple way to center images with Vermilion Christmas. Just put class="center" within the img tag.

    I noticed that the 2 posts on your homepage both contain images with class="centered" within the img tag.

    If that’s what you’ve used with all the images on your blog, then you could just edit the style.css file. Rename img.center to img.centered and all the images that use class="centered" will become centered.

    Does all that make sense?

    Well the images that are does’t works it’s with the photopress plugin, with this sentence:

    [photopress:edgy_with_apps.png,full,centered]

    Regards!

    Hi Keith. What a great theme, just what I was looking for.
    I have one problem, the text won’t wrap around the images.
    Any ideas?
    Regards

    Hi Keith, I fixed the problem.
    Editing the Style.css file in the following way.
    I removed all the image tags and re-wrote them with the following code.

    img.alignleft {
    float: left;
    margin: 5px 10px 0 0;
    }

    img.alignright {
    float: right;
    margin: 5px 0 0 10px;
    }

    img.centered, img.aligncenter {
    display: block;
    margin-left: auto;
    margin-right: auto;
    }

    .alignright {
    float: right;
    }

    .alignleft {
    float: left;
    }

    Everything now works fine.
    Congratulations again on this super theme.
    Ken.

    Hi Ken,

    I’m glad you got it solved. I was just looking into the problem when you posted your second comment.

    This theme was designed before WP standardized image alignment. I guess I need to do some updating.
