Notepad Chaos

Just another WordPress weblog

Notepad Chaos Version 2.0


Version 2.0 is finally here. I went ahead and redesigned into a wider, 3-column layout to allow more room for widgets and such. I had to ditch the old route of using pages, so they’ve been added into a new column to scale easier. Gravatars and widgets have all been enabled, and now you should have plenty of room to build in ad space if you’d like. I considered building that in, but still haven’t figured out how to hook into the WordPress dashboard for easier manipulation. I guess that will be version 2.5…

Anyhow, enjoy the theme. New files are located below to download:

    I was having the same problem with the dates being set as “undefined”. if you use blogger then all you have to do is change the settings. Click on settings, scroll to language and formatting sub-menu: choose and change time stamp format to
    september 18, 2012 (date, month, year), save your changes and refresh. It worked for me! :)

    Hello there! I love this theme – it’s perfect for my refurbished furniture biz. I am having trouble linking to other sites, using the “Friends & Links” feature. How do I do this. HELPPP!!! I really need to use this feature.

    Love your theme. It’s gorgeous. Working on customizing it for my blog. Several people have asked about editing the “What is this place?” section, and there haven’t been any answers. Can someone help me out? It’s not linking to my “about” section as some folks have previously mentioned. I turned that into a page with my bio. I would like the “what is this place?” section to say something about the purpose of my blog. I’m a poet/writer, not a programmer, so please explain it to me like you would to a kindergartener! Thanks!

    function iweb_reverse_comments($comments) {
    return array_reverse($comments);
    add_filter (‘comments_array’, ‘iweb_reverse_comments’);

    I loe both your themes, and am using them both–thank you. I have a problem though–I’m getting this error message for v 2.0
    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    Where can I get the css style sheet?
