    Hi Vladimir

    Is there any posibility to make a drop down menu in the categories?
    So you have Parent categori and then child categories as drop down menu.

      Hey there,

      Great looking theme. I'm wondering if I can exchange the pictures in the header for custom pics I want to use.

      Thanks.

    I was interested by checking ‘blue grace’ theme as it looks good and I was thinking that you made a good job there.
    So I installed it. As you said it is based on ‘amazing grace’, so it does install it.
    The version of the embedded ‘amazing grace’ theme installed is 3.1 and it is installed in '/themes/amazinggrace'
    Looking at the 'amazing grace' theme it appears that the version is 3.6 and path is '/themes/amazing-grace'
    How can I have only one version of 'amazing grace' and let 'blue grace' point to the latest version ? so to '/themes/amazing-grace' ?
    Best Regards

      I have submitted Blue grace for approval on WordPress.org. Current situation is a bit of a mess.

    great theme, The bluish color is really appreciable.

    Really nice theme. I notice the page navigation is missing. Is that by design. I don't see a previous post or next post link on anything and the next page tag just cuts off all content without displaying a next page link.

    Is this a bug or by design. I have a next page tag at the end of this page with the text blog.patyuen.com and as you can see, it does not display.

    Does anyone know of a reason that this theme would suddenly drop the third column and put it under the second one after running well for a very long time? I can't even delete and install a new version, it still doesn't show the third column.

      I have a similar problem but with both columns dropping down and to the left, under the comment field. I have searched high and low for the cause, a solution oe any mention of it occuring to another blog, but NOTHING. I will keep an eye open for this issue also, and if I hear, see or find anything, I'll post it here.

    I'd like to hear what you think, and so would Lou Dalli!
    Thanks for the great design and sharing... we left your link on the template because we like the layout so much... but we needed the color to be purple and gold for out theme.
